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.

Time: 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.

07055: "Of course not. During its last month, the Clinton administration was too busy selling pardons and issuing executive orders to focus on terrorism."

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

Right 07055, lack of credibility on any subject!

Besides that we were almost out of missiles because of his policies.
