A LOT more than George did.
Then again, anything is an improvement over NOTHING.
Why the hell no beefing up of the airliners, pilots cabins as was done by Israel years before? Why didn't Clinton authorize more air marshals?
Republicans wanted Tax Cuts.
Yep, Clinton and his crew were so good, we had the first attack on the twin towers, the Cole, and gave Osama away threee times..........plus his gigantic F--k up, of making it illegal for sister agencies to share intellegence which made 9/11 easier and possible.

CIA collects information and performs operations to protect American interest abroad. Since it represents a key component of American national interest, Clinton instinctively did not trust it. Information sharing among intelligence agencies clearly benefited American national interest considering the high number of terror attacks. But since this interest was suspect, the administration didn’t prioritize counterintelligence. The Gorelick memo recently unearthed in the 9/11 hearings illustrates the Clintonian intelligence view. The infamous “wall” between counterintelligence and domestic law enforcement protected civil liberties, CIA, FBI and secret service did NOT share info before 9/11. Bush forced them to do that after 9/11
Distrusting the CIA, the Clinton administration charged the FBI and other domestic law enforcement agencies with combating terrorism, not exactly the most effective means of fighting cave dwellers.
Clinton was so afraid someone internationally would be "offended", that he failed to protect us.
The USS Cole attack was also due to the sale of the Deerfield Military Oil bunkers in California, a recommendation by Algore and company, which made the US Navy dependent on Port of Call oil stops instead of refueling from Military Tankers as had been the practice.
You're still gullible.
Poor teabagger, is that why every one of the republican candidates said they would refuse to enter Pakistan in order to fight terrorism or find Osama Bin Laden?

You blame Clinton?

He is the one that warned Bush about Osama.

The blame can go all the way back to Reagan, who not only financed Osama and Al-Qaeda, he provided logistics and intelligence.

So you blame everyone and anything besides the person(s) that the attack occurred under and the person who actually gave them the power.

Stupidity reigns with teabaggers.

"Oh by the way Presdient Bush, there's this guy osama bin laden who attacked our interests 7 times while I was in office, but, uh, I was too busy with, uh, you know, Monica, Mt. Carmel, Ruby Ridge to worry about him. I had a chance to get him but turned it down, didn't want to offend the radical islamists."

OBL was fighting the Russians when Reagan was President.....democrat Charles Wilson of Texas made the arrangements for weapons.

Bush Administration in the eight months, things like working to get an armed Predator that actually turned out to be extraordinarily important, working to get a strategy that would allow us to get better cooperation from Pakistan and from the Central Asians, but essentially continuing the strategy that had been left to us by the Clinton Administration, including with the same counterterrorism czar who was Richard Clarke. But I think this is not a very fruitful discussion because we’ve been through it; the 9/11 Commission has turned over every rock and we know exactly what they said.
Conoleeza Rice to the 9/11 commision

Bush continued Clintons weak anti terror policies until 9/11. After 9/11, he changed everything.

Special operations forces. One of the first steps taken by President Bush after Sept. 11 was to revive, fund and expand special operations forces as the dog that would hunt down and kill terrorists.

President Bush also made U.S. Special Operations a war-independent command, just like U.S. Central Command, meaning it could plan and execute its own battle plans.

The U.S. Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), the Army's Delta Force and Navy’s SEAL Team 6 mostly had focused on hostage rescue. After Sept. 11, they started receiving the manpower and intelligence to become manhunters. Their biggest successes: Saddam Hussein; al Qaeda’s top Iraq terrorist, Abu Musab Zarqawi; and Osama bin Laden.

Special Ops/Intelligence. The Bush administration fused commandos with the nation’s intelligence agencies — the CIA, the National Security Agency and the Defense Intelligence Agency — into task forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.

President Bush also transferred a highly secretive military intelligence unit, which specialized in technical surveillance and intercepts, to the Joint Special Operations Command so that commandos and intelligence experts could work together directly.

Predator strikes. The Bush administration established Predator drone bases in Pakistan to strike at al Qaeda and Taliban extremists in that country’s frontier badlands, where U.S. ground troops cannot go.

These are ALSO the polices used by nobama to get obl, idiot.

Well done, President Bush.

Stupid blame game fleabagger.

When Clinton did bomb Afghanistan, republicans were screaming it was a distraction from Ken Starrs multi-million dollar prosecution effort.

7 times?
Not even once.
Name them.
Been reading too many teabagger websites and e mails?

The CIA's anti-communism budget evolves from $5 million to over $500 million (with the same amount matched by Saudi Arabia), startling several congressmen. This effort by Charlie ultimately evolves into a major portion of the U.S. foreign policy known as the Reagan Doctrine, under which the U.S. expanded assistance beyond just the mujahideen and began also supporting other anti-communist resistance movements around the world. Charlie states that senior Pentagon official Michael Pillsbury persuaded President Ronald Reagan to provide the Stingers to the Afghans: "Ironically, neither Gust nor Charlie was directly involved in the decision and claims any credit."

As such, they were actually not supplied until the second Reagan administration term, in 1987, and their provision was mostly advocated by Reagan defense officials and influential conservatives.

Now you're getting your "research" from a movie?

Is that what FOX told you?

Where was the third arm of teabagger propaganda?

Oh' darn, the failure of an over budget, bloated, incompotent,multi- billion dollar republican sponsored "jewel" of an program Homeland (in)Security.

WASHINGTON (AP)— A multibillion-dollar information-sharing program created in the aftermath of 9/11 has improperly collected information about innocent Americans and produced little valuable intelligence on terrorism, a Senate report concludes. It portrays an effort that ballooned far beyond anyone's ability to control.

What began as an attempt to put local, state and federal officials in the same room analyzing the same intelligence has instead cost huge amounts of money for data-mining software, flat screen televisions and, in Arizona, two fully equipped Chevrolet Tahoes that are used for commuting, investigators found.

The lengthy, bipartisan report is a scathing evaluation of what the Department of Homeland Security has held up as a crown jewel of its security efforts. The report underscores a reality of post-9/11 Washington: National security programs tend to grow, never shrink, even when their money and manpower far surpass the actual subject of terrorism. Much of this money went for ordinary local crime-fighting.

Because of a convoluted grants process set up by Congress, Homeland Security officials don't know how much they have spent in their decade-long effort to set up so-called fusion centers in every state. Government estimates range from less than $300 million to $1.4 billion in federal money, plus much more invested by state and local governments. Federal funding is pegged at about 20 percent to 30 percent.

Not a peep from FOX.
