CLINTON: No, because I didn’t get him. WALLACE: Right. CLINTON: But at least I tried. That’s the difference in me and some, including all the right-wingers who are attacking me now. They ridiculed me for trying. They had eight months to try. They did not try. I tried. So I tried and failed. When I failed, I left a comprehensive anti-terror strategy and the best guy in the country, Dick Clarke, who got demoted. So you did Fox’s bidding on this show. You did your nice little conservative hit job on me. What I want to know is… WALLACE: Well, wait a minute, sir. CLINTON: No, wait. No, no… WALLACE: I want to ask a question. You don’t think that’s a legitimate question? CLINTON: It was a perfectly legitimate question, but I want to know how many people in the Bush administration you asked this question of. I want to know how many people in the Bush administration you asked, Why didn’t you do anything about the Cole? I want to know how many you asked, Why did you fire Dick Clarke? I want to know how many people you asked… WALLACE: We asked — we asked… CLINTON: I don’t… WALLACE: Do you ever watch Fox News Sunday, sir? CLINTON: I don’t believe you asked them that.
Clinton On "Fox News Sunday" Fox "News" invites Former President Bill Clinton to talk about his recent Global Initiative conference. Very quickly though, the interviewer uses a variant of the Faux News tactic of "some people say" to blame Clinton for 9/11 ("Why didn't you kill Osama? Why didn't you stop this?") It's clear from the record that BushCo dropped the ball on anti-terrorism, but this is Fox's job - to obfuscate the facts and make the far right wing look good. Clinton tells them to STFU.
