William Jefferson Clinton is just as guilty of supporting terrorist groups and using them as tools in "American foreign policy" as the Bushies.
Remember Ollie North and the Nicaraguan Contras under the Reagan Administration when weapons financed by the drug trade were channeled to "freedom fighters" in Washington's covert war against the Sandinista government. The same pattern was used in the Balkans to arm and equip the Mujahideen fighting in the ranks of the Bosnian Muslim army against the Armed Forces of the Yugoslav Federation.
Throughout the 1990s, the Pakistan Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) was used by the CIA as a go-between -- to channel weapons and Mujahideen mercenaries to the Bosnian Muslim Army in the civil war in Yugoslavia. According to a report of the London based International Media Corporation:

Ever wonder why the felon Oliver North never did time in prison?
Oliver North, Fortunate Felon

LEAD: Oliver North won't go to prison even though he lied to Congress, shredded White House documents and accepted a $14,000 security fence from an Iran-contra arms profiteer. His punishment of 1,200 hours of community service, $150,000 fine and three years' suspended sentence doesn't fit his felonies.

Ever wonder what happened to those Iran Contra guys? They got promoted!
This sampling of some of the most revealing documentation (Note 1) to come out of the affair gives a clear indication of how deeply involved the president was in terms of personally directing or approving different aspects of the affair. The list of other officials who also played significant parts, despite their later denials, includes Vice President George H.W. Bush, Secretary of State George P. Shultz, Secretary of Defense Caspar W. Weinberger, CIA Director William J. Casey, White House Chief of Staff Donald T. Regan, and numerous other senior and mid-level officials, making this a far broader scandal than the White House portrayed it at the time.
In that connection, what follows is a partial list of some of the more prominent individuals who were either directly a part of the Iran-Contra events or figured in some other way during the affair or its aftermath:

Two men, same agenda, different ways of going about it. That's all. Bush's America is Clinton's America and vice versa.
You know, I think it is very possible had LTC North served time, then President Clinton never would have lied in reference to his impeachment.
