Frankly I think Obama is a rotten Marxist. This entire Obamacare farce is simply another power grab by the Federal Government just like Cap and Tax.
That trick was accomplished on 9/11.
Come on Baptistbeliever, JustChristian, Freedom, and Alatide you know that 9/11 was the result of Clinton refusing the gift of bin Laden.
I have no idea what you're talking about. What gift? Have you been drinking heavily again? You really ought to quit.
Is this post of yours an example of the Christian behavior in posting that you are always scolding others for not exhibiting?
There's no Christian behavior on this board.
Imagine that. Say, how do you sleep at night being a Democratic apologist, especially considering they are almost identical twins of the Republicans? Have you ever read the Constitution? Could you show me in the Constitution where it gives the federal governement the power to manage health care? You know, it is in the Constitution to protect our borders, and that does not seem to bother you.
Ok, sorry to interupt, you can go back to bashing Republicans. Be sure and check with the news media periodically so you can get the latest list of differences between the two.
Oh, the comment about OR was completely unwarranted. He has a strong moral compass. My only difference with him is our perception of the Repubican Party. He has a perspective of history and government before WW2.
I will accept this as an admission on your part that your post was not a shining example of Christian behavior.
Now all you need to do is aplogize to the person that you carelessly slandered.
You guys really need to quit feeding the troll.
One thing you have to give him credit for; he answers to many names: Baptistbeliever, JustChristian, Freedom, and Alatide.
When the military had Bin Laden in their sights, Clinton would not authorize taking him out, though it was known he was organizing the attacks that occurred on 9/11.
Talk about drinking Kool-Aid! I'm surprised you haven't drowned!
In what would prove a prescient warning, the State Department intelligence analysts said in a top-secret assessment on Mr. bin Laden that summer that "his prolonged stay in Afghanistan - where hundreds of 'Arab mujahedeen' receive terrorist training and key extremist leaders often congregate - could prove more dangerous to U.S. interests in the long run than his three-year liaison with Khartoum," in Sudan.
The declassified documents, obtained by the conservative legal advocacy group Judicial Watch as part of a Freedom of Information Act request and provided to The New York Times, shed light on a murky and controversial chapter in Mr. bin Laden's history: his relocation from Sudan to Afghanistan as the Clinton administration was striving to understand the threat he posed and explore ways of confronting him.
Before 1996, Mr. bin Laden was regarded more as a financier of terrorism than a mastermind. But the State Department assessment, which came a year before he publicly urged Muslims to attack the United States, indicated that officials suspected he was taking a more active role, including in the bombings in June 1996 that killed 19 members American soldiers at the Khobar Towers in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia.
Two years after the State Department's warning, with Mr. bin Laden firmly entrenched in Afghanistan and overseeing terrorist training and financing operations, Al Qaeda struck two American embassies in East Africa, leading to failed military attempts by the Clinton administration to capture or kill him in Afghanistan. Three years later, on Sept. 11, 2001, Al Qaeda struck the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in an operation overseen from the base in Afghanistan.
Critics of the Clinton administration have accused it of ignoring the threat posed by Mr. bin Laden in the mid-1990's while he was still in Sudan, and they point to claims by some Sudanese officials that they offered to turn him over to the Americans before ultimately expelling him in 1996 under international pressure. But Clinton administration diplomats have adamantly denied that they received such an offer, and the Sept. 11 commission concluded in one of its staff reports that it had "not found any reliable evidence to support the Sudanese claim."
The newly declassified documents do not directly address the question of whether Sudan ever offered to turn over Mr. bin Laden. But the documents go well beyond previous news and historical accounts in detailing the Clinton administration's active monitoring of Mr. bin Laden's movements and the realization that his move to Afghanistan could make him an even greater national security threat.
Several former senior officials in the Clinton administration did not return phone calls this week seeking comment on the newly declassified documents.;;;
I'll let everyone apologize in the order of the number of times they've treated other posters in an unchristian way in the last month. I have a long time to wait.
Remember what I told you Aaron?
So facts make you sleepy. And we are the kool-aid drinkers ?
No wonder you get crushed in every debate.
Said the guy who's been banned...um...how many times ?
