The actions he took were criticized? Gee...no. Really?
Guess you missed the FACT that a recently received response to a 2002 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request revealed another major missed opportunity by the Clinton administration to prevent the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack, which is part of perhaps the most catastrophic failure in the history of U.S. intelligence.
In early 2000, the documents informed America’s top intelligence analysts that al Qaeda had devised a sophisticated plan to hijack a commercial airliner departing Frankfurt International Airport between March and August 2000. The terrorist team was to consist of an Arab, a Pakistani and a Chechen, and their targets were U.S. Airlines, Lufthansa and Air France. The document pieces together an intricate plot directed by a 40-year-old Saudi, Sheik Dzabir, from a prominent family with ties to the House of Saud. It revealed that al Qaeda had actually penetrated the consular section of the German Embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan, relying on a contact referred to as “Mrs. Wagner” to provide European Union visas for use in forged Pakistani passports for the terrorists.
So, how did the Clinton administration respond? In the incriminating words of the intelligence information report, advanced warning of the plot “was disregarded because nobody believed that Osama bin Laden or the Taliban could carry out such an operation.” Perhaps that explains why, for 13 years, the report was classified “secret” and hidden from public view until Judicial Watch forced its release in August of 2013.
In short, nearly two full years before the horrific attack on the World Trade Center, the international Islamic terrorist cabal revealed its insidious hand for all the world to see. The details of names, addresses and other information from this report should have provided “actionable intelligence” for any number of U.S. anti-terrorist operations. Instead, every scintilla of the information “was disregarded because nobody believed that Osama bin Laden or the Taliban could carry out such an operation.”
Let's see if I have this straight son.

You're claiming the warnings came from Clinton's presidency.....

So therefore bushie boy was forewarned....

Condi Rice claimed they were at battle stations during the month of August 2001 while bushie boy was on vacation....

ergo, bushie boy allowed 9/11 to happen!!!

Does that about sum it up nice and tidy like?
Yeah

Might want to recheck your facts, Zippy.
Good now that I have your attention here is what USA presented to you which you indicate you are not reading the post you reply to.
Army Lt. Gen. Donald Kerrick stated that Clinton Cabinet advisors had anti-terrorism meetings "nearly weekly," and that he "didn't detect" that kind of focus in the Bush administration.

On February 26th, 2001, Paul Bremer (Co-chairman of the National Commission on Terrorism, Head of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq) while speaking at the McCormick Tribune Foundation Conference on Terrorism stated: "The new administration seems to be paying no attention to the problem of terrorism. What they will do is stagger along until there's a major incident and then suddenly say,'Oh, my God, shouldn't we be organized to deal with this?"

On May 5th, 2001, Bush rejected the Hart-Rudman report, a two and a half year study on the threat of terrorism, which recommended many improvements in our defenses (enacted since 9/11), including the creation of a National Homeland Security Agency and concluded "Americans will likely die on American soil, possibly in large numbers."

In the Summer of 2001, warnings of an al Qaeda attack in the United States using multiple aircraft as weapons began pouring in from international intelligence agencies all over the world, including: Germany, Russia, Jordan, Morocco, Israel and Britain.

Four months before the 9/11 attacks, a new 'Visa Express' program is started which is designed to help applicants obtain U.S. visas quickly and easily. In June and July of 2001, three of the 9/11 hijackers use Visa Express to enter the United States.(Five according to the U.S. Senate Committee on Intelligence).

On July 10, 2001, Phoenix FBI agent Kenneth Williams sent a memo to FBI headquarters suggesting that bin Laden might be using U.S. flight schools to train for terror attacks, and that officials should check visas of foreigners at American aviation academies. No action is taken

No matter how snarky you get Obama is still incompetent. And it certainly don't take a genius to see that because some of the democrats are beginning to see it too. Only the ones that are blinded by liberal ideology refuse to acknowledge it. It's as plain as the ass on a goat.

Reply: Got one right RealDave.. Lucky guess? Clinton started America's war with Iraq and Bin Laden was made in the USA by Bill Clinton and democrats..
It's the culture...
You are truly one sick f*ck who would track posts made that long ago.

Actually Bin Laden was made by Ronald Reagan. Reagan trained & armed him & got him his cred.

Republican in the late 90's were more interested in a sexual act between consenting adults than anything Bin Laden was doing.Just like they are more interest in trying to win the next election than helping this country.

Bill Clinton did not make up lies to invade Iraq,. That was your hero George W Bush.

You do realize that theACA is not an insurance company. Right?

I purchased a policy on the exchanges &saved significant money for equivalent coverage.

TheACA dores not have any waiting lists. The ACA does not dictate treatment.

You really are quite uninformed to think the ACA did any of those things.

The wait under Bush's watch was about five months, the wait under Obama's was almost seven months. Do you know why the wait was longer under Obama's? One reason is increased demand because of Bush's Iraq war, the other was aging baby boomers.

The big difference you North Korean type Obama subjects won't talk about is that under Obama, people are dropped of waiting lists.

How would you like to be dropped Ghost?

Additionally, if Obama & Democrats are worse handling the VA, it does not increase confidence in the UCA.

Then OH how they holler when it has problems.
Remember how and some still are crying and calling for the destruction of Obamacare. Now as Obamacare is being demanded by their own voters how like sheep they begin to back off.
