I'm asking this question without reading the article: Why didn't Clinton implement his own plan, he certainly had time to attack al Qaeda?

Time creating a story designed to make Clinton look good. Why didn't Clinton take action against Al Qaeda, except for the cruise missile strike in Afghanistan, from '98 to '00, after the Embassy bombings? Towards the end of Clinton's term, some staffer drew up a report and recommendations that we go after Al Qaeda, and it wasn't implemented immediately. Actually, it was evaluated and improved upon. This is clear leftist spin to make Bush look inept, when it was Clinton that cleary was in dealing with the Al Qaeda threat.

But Berger and the principals decided to shelve the plan and let the next administration take it up. With less than a month left in office, they did not think it appropriate to launch a major initiative against Osama bin Laden.

Of course not. During its last month, the Clinton administration was too busy selling pardons and issuing executive orders to focus on terrorism.

Besides, Monica wasn't scheduled to testify before the grand jury so there was no need to fire any more cruise missles at Bin Laden.

Predator drone—the best possible source of real intelligence on what was happening in the terror camps—should be sent to fly over Afghanistan. So the Predator sat idle from October 2000 until after Sept. 11, TIME reports.

Well, there you have it - - if only Bush had listened to Clinton and sent that Predator drone to take a peek at the terror camps, 9/11 would never have happened. We would have gone straight from 9/10 to 9/12.

TIME Magazine, LOFL!!!
How much does the DNC fork over to prop up that pathetic dentist's office throw-away?

Ah yes;

History in the writing.

First formal entry in the "Clinton would have done it better" revision of the past two years.

Forget the aspirin factories and the lost deals to extradite Osama,
Forget the pandering and convenient timing of every military move made under Clinton,
Forget Somalia and Kosovo...

Bill had the answer to Osama Ben Laden, Bill handed the plan free to GWB.
Then, openly partisan Republicans waited too long to use it...
But, when they finally did use it, boy-howdy, worked like a charm.

Our grand kids will be thanking old Bill, yessir, sure they will.

That made it politically impossible for Clinton to strike—especially given the upcoming election and his own lack of credibility on national security. "

Time admits it in a backhanded way that the ChiCom election scandals had conpromised our ability to defend ourselves.

We must put all Time magazines behind other magazines whenever we come across them in a store. They must be stopped! Thankfully people are NOT buying any magazines anymore. We must turn the Time magazines around and put other different magazines in front of them. DO IT!

The Bush administration had good reason not to trust anything that came out of the Clinton administration. No one else trusted them.

Al Qaeda blew up the WTC in 1993. WTF were they waiting for. Joseph Goebbels has nothing on Time.

I'd delay anything that clingon/gore had to do with! One can't go off half cocked without knowing what is really going on.

"If we had done anything, say, two weeks before the election, we’d be accused of helping Al Gore," a former senior Clinton aide told TIME.

Lets pretend Clinton is telling the truth (LOL!). This means the Clinton's did not, are not and will not help Al Gore ever. Why? Hillary was running for the 2004 presidential nomination in 2000. The objective was simply to stop Al Gore from getting in Hillary's way in 2004.

Who delayed? Clinton delayed transition because from his perspective the election was in dispute. Let's get it straight Time!

Time magazine is a left wing publication. They try and present themselves as balanced but they aren't. If you look at the Time issues from January to April you will discover that EVERY TIME the cover story was about Afghanistan and the war on terror these stories ALWAYS end on a negative note about US military involvement in the Middle East, usually in the last 2 paragraphs of the story. I've checked this myself and there is a very clear pattern. In addition to this Time has published *numerous* articles that are flatly false, especially in regard to the takeover of the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem and Palestinian "militants". Time has ZERO credibility when reporting on anything involving the Middle East.

Sounds more like a presentation during a debate than a "plan". Time lending its support to a discredit Bush campaign before the elections sounds like a "plan.

Berger wanted Ground Troops: On Nov. 7, 2000, Berger met with William Cohen, then Secretary of Defense, in the Pentagon. Berger wanted "boots on the ground"—U.S. special ops forces deployed inside Afghanistan on a search-and-destroy mission targeting bin Laden. Cohen said he would look at the idea, but he and General Hugh Shelton, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, were dead set against it. They feared a repeat of Desert One, the 1980 fiasco when special ops commandos crashed in Iran during an abortive mission to rescue American hostages.

Riiiiight. None of the generals were concerned with the Delta Force deaths in Somalia that were a direct result of Clinton/Aspen failure to supply proper equipment for the mission. No, I'm sure that never crossed anyone's mind. Instead, let's go all the way back to 1980. That way, the Clinton Administration isn't (further) tarnished, and what's really nice is some of the younger readers might mistakenly think the reluctance might be due to something Reagan did. Excuses don't get much sweeter than that.
