    Begging Your Pardon, Mrs. Clinton


    Posted 9/28/2006

    The Blame Game: Hillary stands by her man, not bothering to explain why, as president, Bill Clinton granted clemency to terrorists to aid the political fortunes of his wife and vice president.

    Doing her best Tammy Wynette imitation, Sen. Hillary Clinton, who owns the copyright on the phrase "vast right-wing conspiracy," on Tuesday joined in defending her husband's reaction to Fox News anchor Chris Wallace's simple question of why Mr. Clinton didn't do more to get Osama bin Laden.

    Taking a direct shot at Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Mrs. Clinton opined: " I'm certain that if my husband and his national security team had been shown a classified report entitled 'Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the U.S.,' he would have taken it more seriously than history suggests it was taken by our current president and his national security team."

    She was referring to a classified Aug. 6, 2001, Presidential Daily Briefing, or PDB, that was used by 9/11 Commission member Richard Ben-Veniste to badger Rice during her testimony in an attempt to prove the Bush administration was asleep at the switch.

    Mrs. Clinton obviously does not know what a PDB is or what it's used for. This particular PDB wasn't used to warn the president of anything. And PDBs in general are not threat alerts. A PDB is a president's morning intelligence newspaper summarizing important developments over the prior 24 hours, often in raw form.

    All that one might surmise on that morning in 2001 was that an unknown number of terrorists from an unknown country might hijack an unknown number of aircraft at unknown airports and fly them toward unknown destinations for an unknown purpose.

    Compared with what Bill Clinton knew, this was hardly what is called actionable intelligence.

    It's true that Hillary's husband never got such a briefing. According to the 9/11 Commission report: "There was no National Intelligence Estimate on terrorism between 1995 and 9/11. There was no comprehensive review of what the intelligence community knew and what it did not know and what it meant."

    But we didn't need a PDB to tell us bin Laden wanted to kill Americans. On Clinton's watch he'd killed them on three continents. And on Feb. 23, 1998, bin Laden issued a religious fatwa urging all Muslims to kill Americans wherever they could be found.

    Killing "the Americans and their allies — civilian and military — is an individual duty for every Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible to do it," the fatwa said. Any country — whether it be Yemen or the U.S. Which part of that did Bill Clinton not understand?

    We have another simple question perhaps Hillary could answer: If your husband was so intent on fighting terrorism and killing bin Laden, why did he, on Aug. 11, 1999, grant clemency to 16 members of the hard-core Puerto Rican terrorist group Armed Forces for National Liberation (FALN)? And to repeat a question former Clinton guru Dick Morris asked earlier this year: "Did (you) know that Bill was pardoning the FALN terrorists to help (you) win Puerto Rican votes in New York?"

    FALN terrorists carried out more than 150 bombings in the U.S., including the lunchtime bombing of Fraunces Tavern in New York on Jan. 24, 1975, that killed four. Before this pardon, Clinton had denied clemency in 3,039 out of 3,042 cases. Why this one, if he was serious about fighting terrorism?

    As recounted in a Nov. 10, 1999, Washington Post story, this politically motivated pardon of terrorists was also designed to help Al Gore's 2000 presidential bid.

    A White House memo written by Jeffrey Farrow, co-chairman of the White House's interagency working group on Puerto Rico, said on March 6, 1999: "The VP's Puerto Rico position would be helped" if the terrorists were granted clemency. The memo noted that clemency was also a priority for three congressional Democrats with large Puerto Rican constituencies.

    We wonder if this was part of the comprehensive anti-terrorism strategy Bill Clinton claimed to have left George Bush.

    As fascinating as this may be, (I wouldn't vote for Hillary if she was the only candidate running for either party) I do not see what is so relevant about blaming anyone for anything prior to 9/11, unless someone was wanting to sue someone on behalf of a loved one lost in the tragedy.

    What I find much more relevant is the answer to the question,

    What has been done to bring Osama Bin Laden to justice since 9/11 took place and who is responsible for that?

    You get three guesses and the first two don't count. ;)
