Gateway Pundit fires up the Clinton fabrication detector and pegs the needle. Newsweek reporters Michael Isikoff and Mark Hosenball reviewed the Inspector General's report of pre-9/11 intelligence failures. One interesting revelation: Clinton's anti-Fox outburst notwithstanding, he never authorized the assassination of Osama Bin Laden:
Ed Morrissey -- not exactly the vindictive type nor interested in revisiting 9/11 -- concisely nails Clinton to the wall:
And Fausta's on fire:
|Ed asks, Did Clinton lie about targeting Bin Laden?, to which I say, the question should be, "when hasn't Clinton lied about anything?"|
Indeed, Clinton never gave the CIA an assassination order on bin Laden. Michael Isikoff and Mark Hosenball have the whole story. Don Surber points out,
Michael Isikoff, the reporter who broke the Monica Lewinsky story only to have his editors at Newsweek spike the story, has caught Bill Clinton in another lie: He never authorized the killing of Osama bin Laden.Perhaps it all depends on what the definition of "kill" is.
To paraphrase Harry Truman: if the Clintons ever caught themselves telling the truth, they'd lie just to keep their hand in.
