    A couple years ago, stories like this one were common place. Hannity, Rush, and church mouse guy all blasted Clinton for not catching bin Laden with the latter claiming, "He cannot revive his reputation since Nine Eleven because we now know that he was too busy with his girlfriends to take care of US security."

    Even so, assuming that Clinton willfully ignored chances to catch Osama, after bin Laden bombed both our embassies and the USS Cole, why did Bush ignore, "dozens of intelligence reports that warned about Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda, some of which specifically discussed airline hijackings and suicide operations, according to a previously undisclosed report from the 9/11 commission"? (New York Times)

    In fact the Associate Press says:
    And The Telegraph adds:

    It would appear that if anyone had plausible reason to believe that bin Laden should be taken seriously it was the man who Presided after the '98 attacks. Now the scenario becomes, if Clinton flopped by not paying attention to a potential threat then Bush flopped all the more so by not paying attention to an actual threat. While conservatives lament Clinton's record on bin Laden they should ask themselves: who has the greater sin... the should-have-been-psychic or the should-have-been-historian?

    What is the real difference between a "potential" threat and an "actual" and who decides which is which?

    There as a time not so long ago that you bacame 'upset" because you thought I was taunting others. Much like you are doing here. Now all your taunting in the world is irrlevent to me except that you became rather obsessive about when you falsely accused me of it.

    There is plenty of blame to pass around about the events of 9/11/2001.

    The main thing is to fix the problems that allowed the attacks to happen and, sadly, that has not been done. The prime example is the lack of border security six years later.

    And on that we can agree. The president has failed miserably on securing our borders.

    And the Congress as well regardless of which party has been in control of it.

    I blame the GOpers, they had control of congress long enough to do something about it.

    Both parties have failed miserably. Threads like that which pit one against the other is a joke.

    The President and the Congress have both done exactly what they wanted to do. They both attempt to look tough on illegal immigration while still allowing cheap labor to flood the market for their corporate overlords.

    I am quite sure that has a lot to do with it.
