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?
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.
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.

<quoted text> I am just guessing here but maybe Bush something you didn't? Maybe he knew tha Bin Laden was in that compound and the Pakistanis were keeping an eye on him. That killing him and making him a martyr would be the worse thing to do. That perhaps Obama knew the same thing and killed him for political reasons.
But you're too stupid to even consider that!
If that was true, then why did Bush invade Afghanistan. I thought it was to get Bon Laden.

But you say Bush did not want get Bin Laden.

So,why aten't you running down the street screaming " OMG OMG cover up! Cover up" whrn Bush must have lied to invade Afghanistan???

Ryan Fogle Detained By Russia, Accused Of Spying For C.I.A.

MOSCOW -- Russia's security services say they have caught a U.S. diplomat who they claim is a CIA agent in a red-handed attempt to recruit a Russian agent.

Ryan Fogle, a third secretary at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, was carrying special technical equipment, disguises, written instructions and a large sum of money when he was detained overnight, Russia's Federal Security Service said in a statement Tuesday.

Fogle was later handed over to U.S. Embassy officials, according to the FSB, the successor agency of the Soviet-era KGB.

And WHY were troops (NOT just US troops either-KIDDO) even over there?
Answer: Because SADDAM the INSANE had INVADED Kuwait, and Kuwait REQUESTED the help of OTHER nations (NOT just the US as well as had DENIED the offer of "help" in doing so, of one Usuma bin_laden) in pushing the invading forces BACK to where they originated from!
GET A CLUE-especially before you try and call anyone else out on FACTS!
This is what I call ignorance at it's finest! The bottom line was," the conflict of the USA & Bin Laden started before Clinton even walked through the WH doors. This falls right under the Republican playbook. Befriend the enemy of your enemy when it suits our interest, then cry bloody murder when the enemy of our enemy turns out to be a radical jihadist terrorist. Saddam Hussein, Moammar Gadhafi, Osama bin Laden, & the list goes on. How many times must this country go through the same thing before they learn? The trending theme, all of them were befriended by republicans, only to later be stabbed in the back by republicans for doing exactly the same thing they were doing & allowed to do by Reagan when they were friends, as long as it benefits Americas interest. Fund them, train them, arm them, then find a reason to go to war with them because, after all, war is profitable! The Republican model!

A man who police said had a second job as an “armed security officer” was being investigated after he accidentally shot a student Rangeview High School in Aurora, Colorado on Monday.

According to KMGH-TV, a school employee who also has a second job as a security officer had offered a student a ride home at the end of the day. The gun discharged, hitting the student in the leg, when the school employee tried to secure his weapon in the glove box of the car.

The man took the student to a nearby hospital, where he was rushed into surgery with a “significant injury,” police said. The injuries were not expected to be fatal.

It was not immediately clear what type of work the man did for the school, but police said that he was not a teacher.
