No offers were ever made by the government of Sudan to Bill Clinton to turn over Bin Laden to the USA. That's just one more myth in the galaxy of Conservative fabrications. Read Richard Clarke's book. Clarke was America's National Security Advisor under both Bushes and Clinton, and he knows a hell of a lot more about what happened than prattling Right-wing "Pundits" do.
Clinton was totally focused on Al Quaida and Bin Laden. He never had a real chance to capture or kill Bin Laden.
It was Bush who took his eye off the ball. Bush was totally obsessed with Saddam Hussein. He didn't even want to meet with Clarke or talk to him about Al Quaida and Bin Laden. That's why I blame Bush for allowing 9-11 to happen. Bush was guilty of gross negligence, lack of interest, and lack of attention. Now, finally, Obama has re-focused our efforts on Afghanistan and Pakistan, where the real terrorists are headquartered.
How can Republicans be so damn dumb?
