Should I be worried for my own sanity when I actually do "LOL" at some shit I'm reading about the absolute and irrefutable fact that Big Media are a bunch of goddamned craphounds? Courtesy of the Media Research Center, here's their take on what Dan Rather decided to focus on in his broadcast of last Friday:
Dan Rather [mentioned] how Bill Clinton, in one of "the more compelling passages" in his new book, claimed to have warned President-elect Bush about Osama bin laden, but Bush didn't care. Rather touted how "Bill Clinton recounts a meeting with then President-elect George W. Bush. The former President says he warned Mr. Bush that the biggest threat to the nation's security was Osama Bin-Laden and al Qaeda. According to Mr. Clinton, Mr. Bush said little in response, and then switched subjects."
Not only is this a sorry attempt at self-exoneration by Clinton, but an even more abject example of boot-licking by Rather.
How many times does the Asshole Left have to be reminded that Clinton did nothing about al-Qaeda for years? It's not like we didn't know about al-Qaeda and Osama because we did. We knew he was responsible for, at a minimum, the East Africa embassy bombings and the attack on the USS Cole.
So what the fuck was Clinton doing all that time? Don't tell me he was too distracted by the impeachment business because if that were the case, then he should have had the character to resign, rather than allow his own attentions to be so divided. And if it weren't the case that he was distracted, then he should have acted against this great threat that he would some day warn his successor against. Oh, but he did! I forgot! He bombed an aspirin factory on the day that his girlfriend went before a Federal grand jury. So, you see, Clinton was able to order some military action sometimes.
What a fucking joke.
