Dems Need More Than Blustery Bill Clinton To Convince Security Voters

My Townhall column today is a response to Hillary Clinton’s comments earlier this week that her husband’s administration would have done more than the current one if they had seen a classified document saying bin Laden was determined to strike in the U.S.

…her hubby didn’t need a classified report to tell him that bin Laden was determined to attack inside the U.S. He already knew it because we had already been attacked by al Qaeda on U.S. soil — at the World Trade Center in 1993.

Bob Owens responded similarly to Hillary Clinton’s statement, but with specifics I’d never heard. Owens described the 1993 World Trade Center attack as the “first-and-to-date only WMD attack in America by al Qaeda and Iraq-affiliated terrorists.”

In the column I quote extensively from Bob Owens’ excellent post at Confederate Yankee. Read his entire post if you have not already. He makes some excellent points about the 1993 bombing and the Clinton reaction (or non-reaction) to it, including the fact that the WTC 1993 bombmaker was an Iraqi and that the bomb included a chemical component.

Owens states the fact that Hillary Clinton’s husband hoped to disguise with bluster: “Bill Clinton was President of the United States when lower Manhattan was the victim of an al Qaeda plot executed by an Iraqi bomb-builder who detonated a chemical/conventional weapon under tens of thousands of Americans. President Clinton later knew what the bomb was composed of, knew how it was intended to be used, and what threat al Qaeda posed…Bill Clinton was President for another 7 years, 10 months, 25 days after this attack.”
