It was the BEGINNING of the CLINTON administration: World Trade Center, 1993 Terrorist Attack (don't say it too loudly - Yousef had IRAQI passport)...The fact that Yousef is the nephew of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, a top figure in al-Qaeda, suggests a strong connection between the 1993 conspirators and the group who ultimately brought down the towers eight years later. After the September 2001, attack, it was the opinion of many investigators and analysts inside President George W. Bush's administration, that the perpetrators of that attack had a state sponsor—Iraq. A number of details, including the fact that Yousef was traveling on an Iraqi passport, as well as the date of the 1993 attack—the second anniversary of the U.S. liberation of Kuwait in the Persian Gulf War—furthered suspicions of Iraqi involvement in the 1993 incident. Mohammed was later involved in masterminding the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001, and was arrested in Rawalpindi, Pakistan on March 1, 2003.<quoted text>
Carol, try to keep up. Your mental twin blamed Clinton for making Bon Laden when Bin Laden was "made" by Reagan.
I didn't say it was not prudent to arm the opposition in Afghanistan during theRussian invasion. I stated a fact.
That fact was Bin Laden earned his cred thanks to Ronald Reagan.
How do you think sanctions work against countries? Do they think they just hurt the rulers or wealthy? The purpose of sanctions is to arm that country's economy i.e.wealth & hinder their ability to spend money of nuclear or military needs and create unrest among their people.
Bin Laden did not really become a threat until the end of the Clinton administration when he put together a commission to determine our vulnerability to terrorist attack. You know, the report Bush threw in the trash?
What did Clinton do every time we were attacked? he ran polls to see if the American people were paying attention-they weren't-- so he did nothing.
