Bill Clinton's legacy

Everywhere the headline in the MSM for a couple of Clinton speeches was "Bill Clinton Learns To Laugh At His Past." Thank God; we had all been losing sleep.  In this one given on April 12th, 2006, 6,000 mind—numbed and incoherent words.  And as always the speech was about him...our cool...first black president.  Black people should be offended. 130 uses of the first person subject pronoun, 20 uses of first person object pronoun...and possessive adjective? 17 times.  What a beaut!  David Brinkley called him a crashing bore.  An understatement if there ever was one.

Last week, all of the MSM chose to cite a portion from another speech he gave last week as he accepted the Fulbright Association's prize for International Understanding.  He said that:

"In this interdependent world, we should still have a preference for peace over war...I always thought of Senator Fulbright and the terrible quagmire in Vietnam and how many times we sent more soldiers and found ourselves in a hole and kept digging because we didn't want to look like we were weak. So anytime somebody said in my presidency, 'If you don't do this people will think you're weak,' I always asked the same question for eight years: 'Can we kill 'em tomorrow?'  If we can kill 'em tomorrow, then we're not weak, and we might be wise enough to try to find an alternative way..."

Huh?  For 8 years he asked "Can we kill 'em tomorrow?" because "If we can kill 'em tomorrow, then we're not weak, and we might be wise enough to try to find an alternative way"?

What a man!  What wisdom...courage!  I guess tomorrow never came for this comic buffoon.  While he was fiddling and refusing the offers of bin Laden's head, September 11th was being planned.  Here is a short list of Islamist hits occurring on his watch while "he waited for tomorrow"

1992 Israeli Embassy bombing in Buenos Aires, Argentina; 29 die.

1993 February 26 World Trade Center bombing kills 6 and injures over 1000 people

1994 Bombing of Jewish Center in Buenos Aires, Argentina kills 86 and wounds 300. Eight days later the Israeli Embassy in London and a Jewish charity are car—bombed. 20 are wounded. All three incidents are blamed on Hezbollah.

1994 July 19 Alas Chiricanas bombing kills 21 people

1994 Air France Flight 8969 is hijacked by GIA members who planned to crash the plane on Paris but didn't succeed.

1994 A small bomb explodes on board Philippine Airlines flight 434, killing a Japanese businessman. Authorities found out that Ramzi Yousef planted the bomb to test it for his planned terrorist attack.

1995 Islamist terror bombings in France by a GIA unit (Khaled Kelkal being one of the operational leaders).  These attacks killed 8 and injured more than 100.

1995 Bombing of military compound in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

1996 A series of four suicide bombings in Israel leave 60 dead and 284 wounded within 10 days.

1996 Khobar Towers bombing. 19 U.S. servicemen and one Saudi were killed and 372 wounded.

1997 Islamic terrorists attack tourists in Luxor, Egypt, killing 71 people, most of them European and Japanese vacationers.

1997 A terrorist opened fire on tourists at an observation deck atop the Empire State Building, killing a Danish national and wounding visitors from the United States, Argentina, Switzerland and France. A handwritten note carried by the gunman claimed this was a punishment attack against the "enemies of Palestine".

1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and Nairobi, Kenya, killing 225 people and injuring more than 4,000.

1999 Gunmen opened fire on Shi'a Muslims worshipping in an Islamabad mosque killing 16 people injuring 25.
