U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno ran interference for Clinton and his corrupt administration by blocking and slowing down congressional investigations. When Reno wasn't protecting Clinton, she focused most of her attention on environmental violators or hate criminals. Such pursuits seem rather quaint today, when we look at the "environment" of lower Manhattan, not to mention the "hate crime" perpetrated there on September 11. Homeland security appears to have been a low priority for Reno and her FBI Director, Louis Freeh.
The Clinton Administration did nothing of significance in response to the first World Trade Center bombing, the bombing of the Khobar Towers in Dahran, the downing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, the bombing of the Americam Embassies in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam, or the bombing of the USS Cole in Aden. In fact, the Islamic terrorist network behind these mass murders continued to strengthen. It must have been obvious to the terrorists that America wouldn't strike back, excepting the occasional and meaningless firing off of a missile for the benefit of the TV viewer and Clinton's image.
Even more troubling is the possibility of a coverup, by the Clinton Administration, of an Islamic terrorist connection to the Oklahoma City bombing. According to the U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT (8/29), "a few top Defense officials think Oklahoma City bomber Tim McVeigh was an Iraqi agent." U.S. NEWS reports, "The theory stems from a never-before-reported allegation that McVeigh had allegedly collected Iraqi telephone numbers." The Clinton Administration's motive for covering up this key aspect of the case, among other coverups around the Oklahoma City bombing, is truly a mystery.
Former Clinton advisor George Stephanopoulos and U.S. Senator John Kerry (D MA) have recently stated on television that terrorists destroyed TWA Flight 800. The Clinton Administration apparently refused to consider this evidence, at least publicly, and instead chose to cover it up. In 1995, Ramzi Yousef, the mastermind behind the first World Trade Center bombing, revealed to federal investigators a plot called "Project Bojinka," which would have involved the hijacking of 11 U.S. airplanes on a single day, with the intention of either blowing them up in mid-air or crashing them into U.S. targets, including CIA headquarters. The Clinton Administration covered up this information.
The Clinton Administration did nothing when U.N. arms inspector Scott Ritter reported violations regarding the Iraqi development of weapons of mass destruction. Nor was anything done when Iraq suspended the inspections altogether. Most damning, the Clinton Administration ignored the growing terrorist network in America, which included a large number of illegal aliens. Terrorists were laundering money through socalled charities and receiving paramilitary training and aviation training at American schools. Rather than encouraging the the American citizenry to learn about self-defense and the responsible handling of firearms, the Clinton Administration worked to disarm the citizenry. Americans were told to trust the government with their safety.
A gauzy sense of unreality swirled around the Clinton years. The very core of Clinton's being, his entire raison detre, was to cast himself in a favorable image. Everything about Clinton was always phony and narcissistic. This attitude pervaded our culture during those years and perhaps manifested itself in the willingness of all of us, to differing degrees, to suspend reality and focus on illusion. As a person obviously addicted to physical pleasures, Clinton's vision, or attention span, didn't go much beyord the immediate. What mattered to Clinton was that which made him feel good and look good. After eight years of Clinton, the rest of us are now left to grapple with reality.
