Bill Clinton’s Letter

The Clinton administration did not pay enough attention to al Qaeda and the problem of Islamists, their hatred of America and Americans, their connections to established states, their money, and their ability to prosecute a deadly war on the US. Moreover, one and one equals two.

Of course, a Republican administration spanning 1992 to 2000 probably would not have acted very differently. But there wasn’t a Republican administration in those years.

So it is Democrats—angry, angry Democrats—waging a war against ABC, which plans to tell the backstory of Islamism. The story includes the Clinton administration’s multiple refusals to frustrate al Qaeda when it had the chance. Even the former president himself has written a letter to the president of the American Broadcasting Company. They all want ABC to pull the plug. Already, they’ve got ABC to censor itself. But ABC will not pull the plug and won’t censor enough to satisfy Democrats. So Bill Clinton’s letter, I trust, will fadge poorly for the man. It will only build up a massive audience on Sunday. People who want to see, officially, What Bill Clinton Did Not Want You to See.
