Here is what you need to know about the TIME article saying Clinton Had A Plan.
This is from today's Rush Limbaugh show.

On Monday, the Pew Research Center released a poll finding that the media has lost favor with the American public and is now down to pre-September 11th levels when it comes to respect and credibility. On the very same day, Time magazine comes up with this silly "useful idiot" story that the Clinton administration had an Al-Qaeda elimination plan all set to go and the Bush administration ignored it, leading to the September 11th attacks. Clearly this Time magazine piece is the result of the ongoing Clinton legacy rebuilding effort.

The Bush people deny this is true, but we'll have to spend the next few days refuting this - just as we did that hit piece on Cheney and Halliburton. To believe this Time piece, you'd have to believe that Clinton kept silent about this for 11 months, when we know he'd have released it on September 12th to defend himself against charges he failed to deal with bin Laden. You'd have to believe that at the same time Bill Clinton was immersed in the Marc Rich pardon, he was equally immersed in getting rid of Osama bin Laden.

You'd have to believe that Sandy Berger and all the other Clinton people who scream whenever Bush wants to drop a bomb, were the meanest, toughest hawks ever when they ran the show. You'd have to believe that Clinton - who refused to take custody of bin Laden two times when the Sudanese offered him and who never even bothered to visit the World Trade Center site (he only got as far as New Jersey) after the first bombing - understood the gravity of the threat these thugs presented. You'd have to believe that, as the piece notes, the same administration that weakened our ability to infiltrate Al-Qaeda by doing things like banning the CIA from hiring unsavory characters, had a real commitment to national security.
