The Department of Methinks He Doth Protesteth Too Much hands us this wire from the Republic of Bullshitville, which you can find on the map as anywhere Kaiser Wilhelm von Slickmeister happens to be at the moment.
Former President Bill Clinton, angrily defending his efforts to capture Osama bin Laden, accused the Bush administration of doing far less to stop the al-Qaida leader before the September 11 attacks.
In a heated interview to be aired on Sunday on “Fox News Sunday,” the former Democratic president defended the steps he took after al-Qaida’s attack on the USS Cole in 2000 and faulted “right-wingers” for their criticism of his efforts to capture Osama bin Laden.
Guilty as charged. You’re damned right I’m gonna criticize your pathetic, half-assed, frat-boy excuse-for-a-Presidency, Slick-boy. And what the fuck do you think you’re gonna do about it, asswipe?
I mean, to quote that bitch of a wife of yours,
and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration
So sit on it and rotate, Captain El-Camino-Astroturf-Man.
“But at least I tried. That’s the difference in me and some, including all of the right-wingers who are attacking me now,” Clinton said when asked whether he had failed to fully anticipate bin Laden’s danger. “They had eight months to try, they did not try. I tried. So I tried and failed.”
This after you had seven or eight fucking years to get him, Der Kaiser. So who was it that had more opportunity again?
Mm-hm. Thought so…
“I authorized the CIA to get groups together to try to kill him,” Clinton said. He added he had drawn up plans to go into Afghanistan to overthrow the Taliban and launch an attack against bin Laden after the attack on the Cole in the Yemeni port of Aden.
“Now if you want to criticize me for one thing, you can criticize me for this: after the Cole, I had battle plans drawn to go into Afghanistan, overthrow the Taliban and launch a full-scale attack search for bin Laden. But we needed basing rights in Uzbekistan – which we got after 9/11,” Clinton said.
Sure you did, Ol’ Slickster. Betcha they were buried under them there see-gars, weren’t they?
You know – the ones you used to not have sex with that woman? Ms. Lewinski?
The former president complained at the time the CIA and FBI refused to certify bin Laden was responsible for the USS Cole attack.
Uh huh. Got proof to back that up, assclown? The value of your word seems to have gone down in recent years, y’see…
Besides, to paraphrase Misha (see below), since when did you, as Commander-in-Briefs, ever need CIA or FBI permission to go off a known terrorist raghead? That’s not terribly unlike John-boy F’n Qetchup-ass’ half-baked notion that we need the Useless Nitwits’ permission to defend ourselves.
And you wonder why the right-thinkers of this country (i.e, the United States minus the 1000 or so asshelmets on the coasts that CNN/AP-Ipsos/Gallup/et. al. manage to scrounge up every week) don’t trust the Demoscum with our national security.
“While I was there, they refused to certify. So that meant I would have had to send a few hundred special forces in helicopters, refuel at night,” he said.
And of course, we all know how difficult it is for Demoscummic commanders-in-chief to conduct desert operations at night.
Isn’t that right, President Peanutass?
Earlier this month, Clinton dismissed as “indisputably wrong” a U.S. television show that suggested her was too distracted by the Monica Lewinsky scandal to confront the Islamic militant threat that culminated in the September 11 attacks.
Which means that it was nail-on-the-head, 100% accurate. I mean, we all remember how we can tell that Der Kaiser is lying, right?
His lips are moving.
UPDATE: And make damned sure you read Misha’s take thereupon. This is why he’s the Emperor and I am but a lowly King & Tyrant.
