Freeh's Revelation

President Clinton's priorities

Former FBI Director Louis Freeh has written a book in which he discusses his strained relationship with President Clinton. He also says this:
In another revelation, Freeh says the former president let down the American people and the families of victims of the Khobar Towers terror attack in Saudi Arabia. After promising to bring to justice those responsible for the bombing that killed 19 and injured hundreds, Freeh says Clinton refused to personally ask Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah to allow the FBI to question bombing suspects the kingdom had in custody – the only way the bureau could secure the interviews, according to Freeh. Freeh writes in the book, “Bill Clinton raised the subject only to tell the crown prince that he understood the Saudis’ reluctance to cooperate and then he hit Abdullah up for a contribution to the Clinton Presidential Library.” Says Freeh, “That’s a fact that I am reporting.
As I've said before, Clinton is selfishness personified. In The Bullpen's Chad Evans comments:
So let me get this straight. While Clinton was in office and after Americans were killed by Al Qaida, he was more interested in a donation for a future library in his name rather than actually interrogating those responsible? If Freeh’s account is accurate, it goes too much in line with almost every single other report concerning President Clinton confronting radical Islamic terrorism.
Powerline's John Hinderaker comments:
In the current climate of endless carping about President Bush's handling of the war against Islamic terrorists, it is important to remember the fecklessness of the Clinton administration's approach. Is there any reason to think that another Democrat--hey, worse than that, another Clinton!--would do better if elected in 2008?
Nope. Quite the opposite. The country simply cannot afford a repeat of the feckless Clinton years -- or worse, a Hillary presidency.
