NEW YORK — The White House declined Monday to step into the debate after former President Bill Clinton accused "FOX News Sunday" host Chris Wallace of carrying out "a conservative hit job" on him during an interview in which Wallace asked Clinton about his administration's handling of the growing Al Qaeda threat.
"He retorts, you decide," White House Press Secretary Tony Snow said of the former president while playing on the cable network's slogan "We Report, You Decide." Snow went on to say that Clinton "clearly had strong feelings but we're not going to engage."
"There's a reason it's on people's minds: Because there's been a serious disinformation campaign to create that impression," Clinton said. (And leaking confidential reports to the NYTreason isn't??)
Clinton pointed the finger at Republican factions in Congress and Pentagon for stymieing his anti-terrorism efforts.
"All of President Bush's neo-cons thought I was too obsessed with bin Laden. They had no meetings on bin Laden for nine months after I left office," Clinton said. "All the right-wingers who now say I didn't do enough, said I did too much — same people."
Right-wing factions, Clinton said, are trying to rewrite history to cover up their failing to focus on Al Qaeda when President Bush took office in 2001.
"So I tried and failed. When I failed, I left a comprehensive anti-terror strategy and the best guy in the country, Dick Clarke, who got demoted," Clinton said. "So you did FOX's bidding on this show. You did your nice little conservative hit job on me."
"I got closer to killing him than anybody has gotten since. And if I were still president, we'd have more than 20,000 troops there trying to kill him," Clinton said. "I tried and I failed to get bin Laden. I regret it, but I did try and I did everything I thought I responsibly could."
Clinton's combativeness fueled firestorms on liberal political blogs like The DailyKos and ThinkProgress. A clip promoting the segment from Friday night's "Special Report" was viewed nearly 900,000 times on video-sharing Web site YouTube, making it the most viewed video of the weekend.
The TrekMedic scolds:
Growing up, Slick Willie had two career paths: 1 - Join the military, get an education, and learn how to both prioritize your agenda and how to not only recognize a national threat when you see it, but to respond to that threat with devastating and overwhelming force. 2 - The path he instead took. That one turned him into a draft-dodging, pot-smoking, lying sack of s**t who spent 8 years in the White House, pandering to gays, listening only to opinion polls and running around the White House with his pants around his ankles and a vanity mirror in front of him!
You've been caught in you tangled web of lies and all you can do is beat the worn-out drum of "Right-Wing Conspiracy" to your fellow Socialists!
