Dr. Horse -- Kindly remember that under Clinton the criminals responsible for the 1993 WTC bombings were captured, tried (legally) and jailed. Can you say the same for Mr. Bush?
They were Dead.
Then again you forget the slew of attacks under Clinton. Bush doesn't seem that bad. So id say Clinton's neglect is the very reason we had so many attacks under and after his presidency.

Yet Obama's barely within a 100 days and you're ready to jump him?
