Ed asks, Did Clinton lie about targeting Bin Laden?, to which I say, the question should be, “when hasn’t Clinton lied about anything?”
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.
As AJ Strata rather inelegantly but accurately puts it,
So while he was being serviced by an intern in the Oval Office he [Clinton] let Bin Laden run free to finish his work on 9-11. The ultimate screwing of the American people – and he did not even offer us a drink.
If that’s not enough to convince you of Clintons’ (both of them, since they’re running for a second round) perverse disregard for facts, I invite you to read Christopher Hitchens’s book, No One Left To Lie To: The Values of the Worst Family. It’ll shed some more light on the true character of the co-presidents.
Then there’s Hillary’s Peter Paul lawsuit (via Jeremayakovka, who’s also remembering an anniversary of sorts).
But back to Bin Laden: The fact remains that Clinton didn’t do squat because they didn’t see Bin Laden as important as keeping his ass from being removed from office. And that’s the truth.
Update, Friday 24 August:
“The LEFT MUST LIE. Those bright enough to use the IDEOLOGY as an easy way to POWER HAVE TO BE AWARE OF THEIR LIES. The next level, knows that their are many lies but it really is FOR THE GREATER GOOD. The rest just believe what they have been taught and what is spun for them daily by the LSM. So nothing shocking about the new leaks proving how CLINTONS HAVE LIED.”
