    Extraordinary piece of history found. A recording of Bill Clinton
    on Sept 10, 2001 speaking to Australian businessmen admitting
    that he could have gotten Bin Laden.

    BUbba's blood-thinners are affecting his capacity for memory.

    It's not something that he recently stated, it's a recording that
    surfaced from 2001.

    How big is this?

    I never know what will get traction and what won't anymore. I could see this being enormous and I could see nobody other than Fox making a big deal out of this.

    I'm not sure why it would be enormous, other than as a curiosity item due to the date he spoke about it. Hasn't it been well-known for some time that Clinton could have gotten bin Laden, but chose not to for various reasons?

    At this point not that big. One day news story if that. And
    I caught the story first on MSNBC.

    What's interesting was that it was talked about but never confirmed.
    Having Clinton on tape certainly confirms that Bin Laden was a known
    entity prior to 9/11

    WHAT DID HILLARY KNOW? I can see the 2016 billboards now. :D

    Isn't it common knowledge that in August 1998 Clinton ordered missile strikes on a training camp in Afghanistan in an effort to kill Bin Laden distract the country from his affair with Monica Lewinsky?

    Not sure if there's a link, probably is, but the newsies talked about this a few years ago. Nothing new.

    Perhaps it "surfaced" now as a way to make Hillary look weak ahead of '16.

    "Ooooh, her husband wouldn't kill a terrorist -- I bet she wouldn't either!!!11!!"

    Boom's boner for anything and everything Clinton has certainly lasted more than four hours.

    Of course he was a "known entity."

    Just didn't have his clear fingerprints on anything, until February 2001, when it was determined he was behind the USS Cole attack.

    Good thing we acted on that as soon as it became known who was behind it.

    And if I could have been able to hit 325-yard drives and drop 9-irons on the green 2 feet from the hole I could have been on the PGA Tour.
