Which of Gore’s advisors is it who still allows his boss to speak in public?
Former Vice President Al Gore yesterday made his second attack this week on President Bush’s war on terrorism, accusing the administration of ignoring signs that al Qaeda terrorist leader Osama bin Laden planned to attack the United States on September 11.
“The warnings were there” before the attacks, Mr. Gore said.
Which warnings, Al?
The Khobar Towers bombing in 1996?
The African embassy bombings in 1998?
The USS Cole attack in 2000?
Where was the Clinton/Gore response? What was done? Odds are, Osama bin Laden is dead, dead. It took at least four serious attacks on American and lives before he and his wholly-owned Taliban subsidiary were dealt with.
After the first three attacks, Clinton/Gore decisively blew up an aspirin factory, shot missiles at an empty camp, and filed some very harsh briefs.
One attack — one — under a new Administration, and Osama bin Laden is either dead, or so deep in hiding as to not be a danger for a good, long time.
If Gore wants a future in politics, he has got to either shut up, or develop some actual political instincts. Between this absurd statement and Monday’s idiot speech, he is absolutely killing himself.
