<quoted text>You got it wrong as usual. It was the Clinton Administration's quick correlation of U S Intelligence agencies (FBI and CIA ) with European and Arab allies intelligence agencies and Interpol that successfully tracked down , captured and convicted all the major suspects in the 1993 terrorist basement truck bombing attack at the WTC and who are all serving long life terms in U S SuperMax prisons(the most impregnable jails on Earth)
The Cox Report, which detailed Chinese espionage for Congress, revealed that FBI surveillance caught Chinese officials frantically trying to keep Democratic donor Johnny Chung from divulging any information that would be damaging. Chung funneled $300,000 in illegal contributions from the Chinese military to the DNC between 1994 and 1996.

It was this web of investigations that led Gorelick and Bill Clinton to erect the wall between intelligence agencies that resulted in the toppling of the Twin Towers.

In 1995, Clinton's Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick called for increased separation between intelligence and law-enforcement agencies and sought to stifle inter-agency information sharing.

At the same time, Mr. Clinton was worried about ongoing FBI and CIA investigations into illegal Chinese contributions that had been made to U.S. presidential campaigns. Both the FBI and the CIA were churning up evidence damaging to the Democratic Party, its fundraisers, the Chinese, and ultimately the Clinton administration itself.

so then you must know where Obama was that night?
but we know you don't. but the smart folks know: that just because no one will tell FOX where he was doesn't mean he was MIA.
it's not like this is the Bush admin where FOX gets invited to the WH.
Leon Panetta admitted to Senator Ayotte during the Congressional hearings that there was no communication with anyone at the White House and that no one from the White House called for an update on the situation.

It was also revealed that neither the Secretary of Defense nor the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff spoke to Secretary of State Hilary Clinton once during the eight-hour attack on the consulate in Benghazi.

The video of his testimony can be found just about anywhere.

By 7:15 AM 9/12/12 Benghazi time, all (approx 30) Americans, including four deceased had been evacuated via Benina International Airport.
What time do you suppose it was in Washington DC? And don't forget daylight savings time.

The United States and Saudi Arabia have had full diplomatic relations since 1933.

Since the Gulf war, the US had a continued presence of 5,000 troops stationed in Saudi Arabia – a figure that rose to 10,000 during the 2003 conflict in Iraq.

The continued presence of US troops in Saudi Arabia was one of the stated motivations behind the September 11th terrorist attacks.

The two nations still cooperate and share information about al-Qaeda movements to prevent new attacks.

The US–Saudi anti-terrorist cooperation has enhanced the relationship beyond oil rendering Saudi Arabia America’s most important security-wise nation.

Is it More Treasonous to Violate the Constitution or to Expose Those Violations?

June 12, 2013

In a free society the people within the government are supposed to be open and transparent while citizens enjoy privacy. What, then, do you call a society where the government is ultra secretive and all citizens are spied on by the state?

"In the wake of the recent disclosure of two classified U.S. surveillance programs, most Americans disapprove of the government collecting the phone numbers of ordinary Americans, but approve of its monitoring those suspected of terrorist activity, according to a new CBS News poll.Seventy-five percent of Americans approve of federal agencies collecting the phone records of people the government suspects of terrorist activity, but a 58 percent majority disapproves of this type of data collection in the case of ordinary Americans."
Its all in how the question us asked
similar statistics are transitory in nature.
