Inhale and Have a Kaffee Klatch

Slick Willie Clinton to Chris Wallace:
"I got closer to killing him [Mr. Osama Bin Laden] than anybody has gotten since. And if I were still President, we'd have 20,000 more troops [in Afghanistan] trying to kill him."
Where do you begin with a whopper like that one ? The mind just boggles.
"Closer to killing him ?" How ? Sccording to the 9/11 Commission, Clinton refused to approve CIA or military plans to kill Bin Laden.
As for the rest of that statement, even a cursory review of President Clinton's attitudes and actions towards the military, and war generally, shows you have to be inhaling what Slick says he didn't if you really believe that, were he in charge, even one US soldier would have invaded Afghanistan, ever. If Monica's "Big He" had been running the show in the fall of 2001, the relevant lawyers and diplomats would still be studying the whole problem; and we'd still be seeking overflight rights from the Taliban to maybe let us look for Osama on alternate Tuesdays in odd-numbered months if the UN said it was okay.
Clinton never did anything about any military problem other than talk, refuse to ask, and never tell.

klinton reminds me of yul brenner with hair in "the 10 commandments".
you know the part. when yul says, "so let it be written, so let it be done".
if bill says it's so, then it is.
don't believe me.
just ask him.

Isn't that good news about 7-Eleven saying Adios Muchacho ? Will definitely patronize them in future.
