North Korea's development of nuclear weapons is Clinton's fault Some basic facts regarding Clinton, Bush and North Korea 
   
Clinton did little/nothing to protect us from Bin Laden Clinton Addresses the Nation, 20 August 1998. Full transcript of President Clinton's two different announcements of actions taken against Bin Laden's network. The first announcement was made earlier in the day when the events first occurred, while the second announcement was a televised address to the nation that evening. HTML (web page) version. Note that all this occurred just as the Monica Lewinsky "scandal" was at its height of media coverage, and these actions (and the speeches) were dismissed by most people as a "Wag-the-Dog" distraction. In hindsight, it's obvious that while Clinton was trying to prevent what eventually happened on 9-11-01, most of the rest of the world was convinced that revealing his sex life was far more important to the nation.
Clinton announces success against Afghanistan and Sudan, 27 August 1998. A week after the assault on terrorist camps in Afghanistan and Sudan began, Clinton announces some successes, and promises to continue to pursue those responsible. Full transcript in HTML (web page) format.
   
Sudan offered Bin Laden to Bill Clinton and Clinton declined While addressing the Long Island Association's annual luncheon, Clinton said he "pleaded with the Saudis" to accept Sudan's offer to hand bin Laden over to Saudi Arabia. Sudan never offered bin Laden to the United States, and Clinton did not admit to the Sudan offer in that speech or anywhere else.
  The government of Sudan, using a back channel direct from its president to the Central Intelligence Agency in the United States, offered in the early spring of 1996 to arrest Osama bin Laden and place him in custody in Saudi Arabia, according to officials and former officials in all three countries. The Clinton administration struggled to find a way to accept the offer in secret contacts that stretched from a meeting at hotel in Arlington, Virginia, on March 3, 1996, to a fax that closed the door on the effort 10 weeks later.
Unable to persuade the Saudis to accept Mr. bin Laden, and lacking a case to indict him in U.S. courts, the Clinton administration finally gave up on the capture.
   
Clinton once wrote in a letter that he "loathed the military

 

What he really wrote: "I am writing this too in the hope that my telling this one story will help you understand more clearly how so many fine people have come to find themselves still loving their country but loathing the military, to which you and other good men have devoted years, lifetimes, of the best service you could give..."
   
The Clinton administration didn't try to warn the incoming Bush administration about the Al-Qaeda threat. Memorandum
