Today's Cartoon: Bill Clinton Defends His Efforts to Capture Osama Bin Laden

I really don't understand why after five years of "The War on Terror", the American mainstream media has basically decided to blame Bill Clinton for not capturing Osama Bin Laden; except to think that maybe they're pissed off that he had to leave office and hand the responsibility of defending the United States over to the Bush Administration ;)

Look, *if* what Clinton says is true and the FBI and the CIA refused to certify that Bin Laden was responsible for attack on the USS Cole in October of 2000 (weeks before the elections and a few months before he left office), then it would appear (that as an outgoing President) he could do little else (except declare martial law and cancel the elections) than present the intelligence to the incoming administration, so that they could deal with it.

So, if hindsight is 20/20 and Bill Clinton MUST be held accountable for everything that has happened since he's left office, then I guess this would mean that the BIGGEST mistake he made while president was not that he failed to capture Osama Bin Laden, but that he left it up to the Bush Administration to do it ;)

Hmm... I wonder if this also means that the folks at FOX news are going to start holding George W. Bush accountable (in hindsight) for falsely claiming that there were WMDs in Iraq, leading to the complete clusterf*ck that the Middle East is in today.

...Oh wait I forgot, this is an election year ;)
