Is this how you can tell someone knows they will never ever be President of the United States? Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio says that Bill Clinton is to blame for the World Trade Center terrorist attacks and excused George W Bush and Dick Cheney for how they allowed it to happen.
Rubio claims that Bill Clinton did not take the threat of terrorism and Al Qaeda seriously, and this allowed Bush to be blindsided by the 911 attacks. He basically excused Bush and Cheney completely and blamed it all on Bill Clinton. Lets set the record straight.
Bill Clinton had an entire plan ready to invade Afghanistan, overthrow the Taliban, and find and kill Bin Laden. He couldn’t get it to happen, because the CIA and FBI wouldn’t back him by admitting Al Qaeda was responsible for the attack on the USS Cole. He was literally one step away from full out war, just like Bush (except Bush invaded the wrong country), but he was unable to start it before he left office. He left his entire operation in place for Bush and Cheney, and they completely abandoned it. They also ignored new intelligence that Bin Laden was determined to attack the US, and essentially allowed 911 to happen on their watch, by ignoring the warnings.
Republicans though, do not care about things like facts and reality. They are convinced that Bush bear no responsibility for 911, but are ready to blame Bill Clinton, even though Republicans ignored all the warning signs it was coming. How about this instead? If Bill Clinton is responsible for 911, then Bush and Cheney are responsible for Benghazi. Deal?
