BUSH!!!
With all the Bush-bashing I thought this would be good food for thought: It's easy to forget the promises that Bill and Hillary made while in office. It strikes home when it is listed like this:
After the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, which killed six and injured 1,000, President Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.
Bush covered it.
After the 1995 bombing in Saudi Arabia, which killed five U. S. military personnel, Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.
Bush covered it.
After the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia, which killed 19 and injured 200 U. S. military personnel, Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.
Bush covered it.
After the 1998 bombing of U.S. embassies in Africa, which killed 224 and injured 5,000, Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.
Bush covered it.
After the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole, which killed 17 and injured 39 U.S. sailors, Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.
Bush covered it.
Maybe if Clinton had kept his promise, 3,000 people in New York and Washington, D. C. who are now dead would be alive today. Bush told those firemen -- they would hear us too.
And, now that Bush is taking action to bring these people to justice, we have opponents charging him with being a warmonger.
