Clinton, Wallace Battle in Fox Interview

NEW YORK (AP) - In a combative interview on "Fox News Sunday," former President Clinton defended his handling of the threat posed by Osama bin Laden, saying he tried to have bin Laden killed and was attacked for his efforts by the same people who now criticize him for not doing enough.

"That's the difference in me and some, including all of the right-wingers who are attacking me now," Clinton said in the interview. "They ridiculed me for trying. They had eight months to try, they did not try."

Clinton accused host Chris Wallace of a "conservative hit job" and asked: "I want to know how many people in the Bush administration you asked, 'Why didn't you do anything about the Cole?' I want to know how many people you asked, 'Why did you fire Dick Clarke?'"

On NBC's "Meet the Press," also taped Friday and aired Sunday, Clinton told interviewer Tim Russert that the biggest problem confronting the world today is "the illusion that our differences matter more than our common humanity."


This was an awesome interview and Clinton made it clear he didnt roll over then and he's not going to roll over now. This is passion from thought - passion from true caring. We need more leaders like Clinton.

Here's the Interview on Google Video.

  1. wife and i were talking about clinton the other day when he was on the daily show and we both agreed on something very important that i think most of america is refusing to even think about.

    while in office, how many people talked impeachment when it came out that clinton got a blow-job in the oval office *gasp*?

    people acted like it was completely impossible for someone with that much power to abuse it in the way that clinton did. and what do you do when something like that happens? you impeach the president.

    ok. now, look at what bush has done. he has taken the law and thrown it out the window. not in a single case of bad judgement but with every intention to ignore all civil rights of united states citizens.

    then, when it came out did he appoligize and promise to never let it happen again? nope. he flat out said he didn't care and would do it again.

    when people attempted to investigate did he cooperate as he should? nope. he refused to offer any information.

    so, looking back at the horrible things both presidents did, which is worse in your eyes now? personally, i wish i was getting BJ's at work.
