#Clinton suppressed terrorist reports

Clinton Legacy?

We've previously addressed the unique relationship of Hillary with the Muslim Brotherhood and Sisterhood, as well as Hillary's foiled covert meeting with Iran's President Ahmadinijad leaders; we've also noted Bill's seeming incompetence when it came to pursuing Osama bin Laden.

But, now we learn from US Intelligence officers and executives that Bill actually suppressed evidence of terrorism sponsored and carried out by Muslim extremists, with support from Saudi and Iranian backers.

Here's the list, as presented by IBD in the referenced article:
1)   1993: World Trade Center Bombing:  Six killed, 1,000 injured.
      No follow-up action

2)   1995: Riyadh, Saudi Arabia US Military Training Center Bombing:
       Five Americans killed.

3)   1996: Khobar Towers Bombing:
      19 US Servicemen killed; hundreds wounded.
      a) The six Saudis involved in the attack told the FBI they obtained
          their Iranian passports and reported to an Iranian general.
      b) FBI Director Louis Freeh confirmed that Bill Clinton and NSC chief
          Sandy Berger called the evidence "hearsay" and ordered Freeh to
          not disseminate lest it undermine closer relations with Iran.
      c) Clinton's knowledge of this evidence was confirmed in a 1999 Top Secret cable [now
          declassified] in which he discussed with then President Mohammad Khatami of "credible
          evidence" that members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps worked with Hizballah
          in the bombing of the Khobar Towers resident complex in Saudi Arabia.
      d) Wayne White, a State Department Intelligence Officer [1979-2005] advised that intelligence
           on the attack had been cut off by Sandy Berger, National Security Advisor to Bill Clinton.

4)  1996:  Sudan's President Bashir offers to
     arrest and extradite Osama bin Laden to Saudi
     Arabia; in the absence of a US response,
     bin Laden was "evicted".  Sudan also tossed
     out a number of the functionaries in the 2001
     bombing of the World Trade Center in New
     York.  Clinton's non-response was an
     indicator that Sudan might be targeted by
     Clinton for political purposes; thus Bashir's
     eviction notice to bin Laden.

5)  1998: Bombings of US Embassies in Nairobi,
     Kenya and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania:
     224 killed; 5,000 injured.

6)  1998: US bombing [political] of Iraqi sites to
      distract Media attention from Monica
      Lewinski Impeachment scandal.
      [The Iraqis had fully cooperated with US/UN inspection demands, until the US 
      demanded access to Saddam's personal quarters.  Clinton used this refusal as the basis for 
      bombing Iraq.]

7)  2000: USS Cole bombing by al Qaeda in Yemen:  17 US Sailors killed, 37 injured.
     Clinton blamed Sudan.  Bin Laden celebrated and received massive new donations and
     large numbers of new recruits.

Interestingly, this new reporting supports the history of Democrats forcing the Intelligence Community to distort or suppress actionable or exculpatory intelligence to support the sitting President's political agenda.

It dates back to FDR's suppressing Intelligence that the Japanese were planning to bomb Pearl Harbor, LBJ's creating the "evidence" of hostile actions by North Vietnam as the basis for his assault on Tonkin Bay to escalate US involvement, Jimmy Carter's muzzling of the US Intelligence Community on reporting on North Korea and, later, on Iran and the Ayatollah Khomeini; and, of course, Mr 0bama's consistent dismissal of his daily Intelligence Briefs ignoring Russian and Chinese threats to the US -- not to speak of his loosely shaded links to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The IBD asks [rhetorically],
"Do we want another Clinton in the Oval Office?"
