There were a number of times during his Presidency when Bill Clinton had opportunities to take out Osama bin Laden. We know he didn't and that sadly 3,000 people died on 9/11 because of that and thousands more of our troops and our allies dies in Afghanistan. What we have never heard before is Clinton himself glibly discussing the "Hard Choice" to skip out on his responsibility to America and the world. Now a tape of him speaking to some Australian business people has surfaced and it happened on the day before the planes hit the towers. It would be a disgraceful equivocation from him on any day, but the irony of this is just painful.
He claims that any civilian casualties in a strike to take OBL out would have been morally equivalent to bin Laden's terrorism. We all know that is BS and so did Clinton. He is responsible and will carry that weight to his grave.
