Attack Of The Foreign Policy Failures: Perennial embarrassment Jimmy Carter chimed in on the Iraqi invasion earlier today and now Bill Clinton, the man who refused Sudan’s offer of a gift wrapped Bin Laden, explains why we shouldn’t hit Iraq…
“Former President Bill Clinton urged the Bush administration Thursday to finish the job with Osama bin Laden before taking on Iraq.
“Saddam Hussein didn’t kill 3,100 people on Sept. 11,” Clinton said. “Osama bin Laden did, and as far as we know he’s still alive.”
“…I also believe we might do more good for American security in the short run at far less cost by beefing up our efforts in Afghanistan, Pakistan and elsewhere to flesh out the entire network,” Clinton said”
Of course, since Osama may have been turned to soup by US bombs at Tora Bora it’s entirely possible that we’ll NEVER have definitive proof that he’s dead but that’s not Clinton’s real motivation for suggesting it anyway. This is just a delaying tactic Clinton is using to try to obstruct the defense of America while providing himself a little cover in case the terrorists attack again. Clinton is the latest Democrat to prove that Ann Coulter was right when she said,
“Not exactly smashing stereotypes of liberals as mincing pantywaists, the left’s entire contribution to the war effort thus far has been to whine.”
(***Update: Reader Mike Cakora writes…
“Read to the “Don’t go after Sadam, Osama is still alive” club being led by ex-presidents Bill and Jimmy:
That makes as much sense as ignoring Hitler while fighting Japan during WWII. “Hey Britain, we’ll be right over as soon as we finish off the Emperor. See if you can hang on until 1944.”)
