Bill Clinton, in an interview with Chris Wallace to be aired on FoxNews Sunday (check your local listings), became incensed, and launched into a screaming harangue, when Wallace suggested that Clinton may have missed the chance to capture or kill Osama bin Laden.
Hmmm ... let’s look at just a small handful of no doubt hundreds of thousands of comments made by respected experts and pundits in the years since the debacle known as the Clinton administration:
From the book ‘Red Dragon Rising: Communist China’s Military Threat to America’ by Edward Timperlake and William C. Triplett II (thanks, Mia T, for the steer):
It would take a year and a half for the House of Representatives, the people’s body, to begin stripping away the Clinton administration’s camouflage disguising the truth about Communist China. In May of 1999 a select Congressional committee, in a unanimous bipartisan vote, identified President Clinton’s betrayal of his most sacred trust – safeguarding the national security of America. This is President Clinton’s legacy ...
After a five-month struggle with the Clinton White House over the report’s declassification and release, Cox and Dicks revealed the conclusion of their committee’s six-month investigation: The PRC has stolen America’s most advanced nuclear weapons secrets, and Chinese espionage ‘almost certainly continues today’ ...
The thesis of this work is simple: The democratic countries are about to be unpleasantly surprised by the emergence of a hostile, expansionist, nondemocratic superpower armed with the most modern weapons … and it will be our fault ...
In short, through a misguided foreign policy that has sacrificed national security for money and personal political power, the Clinton-Gore administration has materially assisted Bejing’s military ambitions.
Adding a few more dots in the depressing connect-the-dots exercise …
In November 2004, Iran gave China the rights to exploit the giant Yadavaran field. Importantly, China plans to bring this oil into China, not across the Indian Ocean and through the Malacca Straits, but by pipeline across central Asia, free from the surveillance of the US fleet. China’s attitude to Iran is foretold; it has refused to condemn Sudan over the killings in Darfur since Sudan allowed it to build a 500-mile pipeline to the coast. Ahmadinejad can therefore be 100 per cent certain that China will veto any attempt to win UN approval for military intervention in Iran … Will Hutton in U.K.’s Obsever
China supplies arms to Iran. Some of its firms are suspected of supplying missile technology and dual-use chemical weapons-related production equipment … Many suspect that Iran has continued to get Chinese help directly or indirectly through Pakistan or North Korea … Tehran has evidently acquired the technology to turn the yellow cake into uranium hexafluoride gas both by using lasers and centrifuges. This can be used to make nuclear weapon … earlywarning.com
The successful effort by China to obtain U.S. microchip technology included espionage, sabotage and perhaps bribery. The red intelligence windfall freed the Chinese army to more accurately target American cities with atomic weapons using advanced U.S technology … The legacy that President Clinton left for the 21st century is a modern Chinese army equipped for global nuclear war … Charles R.

In all likelihood we will be glowing in the dark before we discover the true extent of the Clinton decade of betrayal … Rick Fisher, Asian Security Fellow at the Center for Security Policy
Yet the same man who single-handedly oversaw the most treasonous acts in the history of this republic, placing personal political power over maintaining the integrity of our national sovereignty and security, became incensed (take a look -- He is even more red-faced and enraged than he was in the 'I ... did ... not ... have ... sex ... with ... that ... woman!' episode) when Chris Wallace suggested that he dropped the ball in his ‘efforts’ to corner Osama bin Laden.
(Help me out here. Where have I witnessed that wagging finger before?)
The accusation that Clinton fumbled the ball when he had the opportunity to capture bin Laden absolutely pales in comparison to the knowledge that he provided our greatest ideological enemy with dozens of advanced technological devices and systems (including, but by no means limited to, radiation hardened chip sets which are critical for atomic warfare and are required by advanced nuclear tipped missiles), which China apparently intends to share with other hostile countries, and which are surely destined to represent the means to destroy the nation he was elected to protect and defend.
