Worse than a crime

I’ve been on the road for the past few days. One night I happened to see a clip of Bill Clinton talking about various terrorist attacks that he says he prevented during his Administration. But I fear that Slick Willie won’t be able to talk his way out of this one. Indeed, in his desperation to defend his record on terrorism, Clinton is digging himself a deeper and deeper hole. History will give him no credit for “preventing” particular acts of terrorism that failed to come off due to the vigilence of law enforcement agents. To the contrary, the more attacks that were thrwarted during the Clinton years, the more Clinton will be judged criminally negligent for doing virtually nothing to strike back at Al Qaeda and other sources of terrorism.
