You represent every liberal being the problem.
The Bush administration was on alert because al Qaeda had been sending the same threats long before Bush took office. Unfortunately, they didn't give anyone the time, the day, the targets, or the exact mode of attack.
It was precisely because Clinton took no action against the USS Cole or any other attack on our military overseas which emboldened al Qaeda. They claimed the U.S. was weak - again, long before Bush took office. Bush "inherited" it...since you liberals like that word so much.
Once again Carol you're demonstrating that you either don't know what the hell you're talking about, a damned liar or both.
Just because the terrorist didn't provide a detailed plan isn't an excuse for your hero George W to do nothing and stay on his ranch cutting more brush.
The attack on the USS Cole happened toward the end of Clinton's presidency and it wasn't until months later that the evidence pointed to Al Qaeda.
Your assertion that Clinton did nothing about the other attacks on US interests is a damned lie. Beginning on Aug. 7, 1998, the day that al Qaeda destroyed the U.S. embassies in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, Clinton directed a campaign of increasing scope and lethality against bin Laden's network that carried through his final days in office.
He ordered cruise missile attacks in 1998, directed against Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan and the Sudan, following the terrorist bombings of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.
Operating on limited intelligence -- at that time, Pakistan, Uzbekistan and Tazikistan refused to share information on the terrorists whereabouts inside Afghanistan -- U. S. strikes missed bin Laden by only a couple of hours.
Who emboldened Islamic extremists dumbass? That would be Ronald Reagan who after the deadly attacks on our Marine barracks in Beirut simply pulled US peacekeepers out of Lebanon.
You're an idiot Carol; you always have been and always will be!

One year after the 2012 election, all polls showed Romney would have won if the election had been held just one year later.
Don't know how the liberals on here can reconcile this with their incessant reminders Obama won.
Americans just woke up from their Obama-induced slumber a little too late. But there's always the silver lining - if we can just survive the rest of his second term while watching him play golf.
He did win moron. And you can stuff the golf crap. It's been overblown by right wing nitwits like you.
Obama probably plays golf less often than Bush rode his mountain bike.

Oct. 12, 2000 - A terrorist bomb damages the destroyer USS Cole in the port of Aden, Yemen, killing 17 sailors and injuring 39.
In his final months in office, Clinton never retaliated against al-Qaida, frustrating some of his own counterterrorism advisors. Clinton later told the 9/11 commission he was never shown hard proof that Osama bin Laden’s operatives were behind the attack.
But two senior investigators — one with the FBI and another with the Naval Criminal Investigative Task Force — recently told NBC News there was actually compelling evidence that al-Qaida was responsible for the bombing almost immediately.
http://www.nbcnews.com/id/39622062/ns/us_news...
There were attacks previous to this in Yemen, Beirut and Saudi Arabia killing Americans.
Then there was the attack in February 1993 when a bomb in a van exploded in the underground parking garage in New York's World Trade Center, killing six people and wounding 1,042.
Clinton wanted the terrorist responsible to have his day in court.
Compelling evidence isn't irrefutable evidence dimwit.
Clinton did take action against Al Qaeda for the attacks on our embassies and other facilities which the Republicans denigrated as "wagging the dog".
The WTC bombings in February 1993 were criminal acts so according to the Constitution the perpetrators were entitled to their day in court.

So you must think al Qaeda made sure Bush knew the exact day, time, targets and mode of attack and Bush ignored that information. Or that Clinton didn't pass it on to him. One or the other.
Not only were many Germans shocked at the depth of Hitler's dark side when the concentration camps were liberated but much of the civilized world. Many Germans were quite aware of Jews being harassed and then disappearing but not knowing their horrendous plight and probably others just not wanting to know. Other Germans were convinced Hitler was Germany's salvation to the bitter end and hated the Jews as much as he did.
Why do you find that so amazing?
Just because the terrorists didn't provide a detailed plan of action wasn't a reason for Bush to just stay on his faux ranch cutting brush instead of getting back to DC and light fires under some butts to try and prevent the attack from happening bird brain!

"Fair and Balanced" network. At least they try to report the News. The rest of the mass media refuses to report the news,all they are willing to report is Obama propaganda. Since Obama lies 100% of the time,even if the mass media reported every thing that Obama said,they would still be reporting 100% lies. The real corruption "is" the mass media,they are worst than Obama himself. After all, Obama can't destroy our country all by himself,he needs the help to the masses. Take away the mass media , and Harry Reid,what does Obama really have--- just a bunch of lies and millions of idiots that will believe his lies.

ISIS/ISIL can also thank L Paul Bremer who disbanded the Iraqi army taking away their pay and pensions but not their weapons. Not only did Iraq have to build an army from scratch but many members of the former Iraqi went over to them. Why do you think ISIS/ISIL had such an easy time?

Convert Or Die: Tea-Publicans Embrace The ISIS Doctrine

The American conservative movement has been crystal clear about their devotion to religious intolerance, racial bigotry, and political obstinance. They have honed an ideology of hatred and obstructionism that is unprecedented in our nation’s history. And in the wake of an escalation of brutality by our terrorist enemies, the right-wing only affirms their hard-line views and, even worse, adopts the rhetoric of our foes.

The latest whack job to jump on the hayride is Duck Dynasty’s patriarch, Phil Robertson. Sean Hannity brought the Duck Dick onto his program to contribute his expertise in national security matters. However, the segment devolved into a sermon with Robertson spending most of his airtime reading from the bible. In one of the few off-the-cuff analyses of current affairs, Robertson offered this bit of wisdom about how to deal with ISIS:

“I’m just saying either convert them or kill them. One or the other.”

Well then, that certainly justified giving him twenty minutes to pontificate on a cable news program. Although it does coincide with previous Fox News pundits like Ann Coulter who said about Muslims generally:

“We should invade their countries, kill their leaders, and convert them to Christianity.”

If this rhetoric sounds familiar it’s because we’ve heard from none other than ISIS operatives themselves. As Fox’s Megyn Kelly noted, they invaded towns in Iraq telling the residents that they had to “convert, die, or leave.” So Coulter, Rpbertson, et al, are now cribbing their speeches from the terrorist set. If you’re going to engage in plagiarism, it might be better to follow the Herman Cain model and stick to ripping off Pokemon movie theme lyrics.
