CIA Director George Tenant says that Bill Clinton’s Administration bankrupted CIA and made it impossible to adequately track al Queda leading up to 9/11/2001
BLOCK-BUSTER ON EVE OF HILLARY CLINTON’S RE-INTRODUCTION TO AMERICA — SHOWS THAT SHE MIGHT HAVE A SERIES OF 9/11s PROBLEMS TO ANSWER FOR — SOME FROM 2012 AND SOME FROM 2001
Disclosure of CIA Director’s 2005 Memo Blaming Clinton Administration Failures for 9/11 Attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in 2001 means that: — Old news is bad news for restart of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Campaign
According to a Friday report in the Washington Times, “The Clinton administration had bankrupted the intelligence community and refused to let the CIA prioritize anti-terrorism over other major priorities in the late 1990s, leaving the agency stretched too thin in the days ahead of the 2001 terrorist attacks, former Director George J. Tenet said in a 2005 document declassified Friday....” (See “CIA releases memo showing agency blamed Bill Clinton for bankrupting war on terror ahead of 9/11” by Stephen Dinan, 6/12/15, The Washington Times [http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/jun/12/clinton-admin-bankrupted-cia-ahead-911-ex-director/#ixzz3ctfdZJpN]).
Mr. Dinan’s report went on to note that “... Mr. Tenet, who was head of the agency at the time of the Sept. 11  attacks and has taken severe criticism for not anticipating and heading them off, said in the document that he took the threat of Osama bin Laden very seriously, and put major effort into trying to penetrate al Qaeda, beginning as far back as 1998....”
In one noteworthy revelation, in 2005 Mr. Tenet said that even the limited CIA efforts late in the Clinton Administration had warded-off an earlier “major attack,” which had been planned by al Qaeda for some time in 1999 or 2000. The Tenant document gave no further details.
According to another report on the 2005 Tenet memo, “... Tenet also painstakingly details the number of times he asked for more money for counterterrorism – and the nine occasions he said he sent memos to senior officials in both the executive branch and Congress warning of terrorist plots....” ( See “Ex-CIA Chief's 2005 Memo: Clinton Admin. Bankrupted Agency Before 9/11"
by Kathy Burke, 6/12/15, Newsmax [http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/cia-chief-george-tenet-memo/2015/06/12/id/650335/0]).
And Tenet himself is quoted as having written this, by both of the sources cited herein: “... Even though senior policy makers were intimately familiar with the threat posed by terrorism, particularly those in the previous [Clinton] administration who had responded to major attacks, they never provided us the luxury of either downgrading other high priority requirements we were expected to perform against, or the resource base to build counterterrorism programs with the consistency that we needed before September 11....”
BUT WHY IS THIS A PROBLEM FOR HILLARY CLINTON AND HER 2016 RUN FOR THE PRESIDENCY ?Anybody that asks such a question is either completely silly, extremely naive, or such a cynical Hillary supporter that they should be laughed at directly into their faces — with a full throated up-from-your-diaphragm — “Aha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ho-ho-ho-hee-hee-hee — [gasping] That's a good one ! ! !”
However, a simple explanation can been gleaned from a report about Hillary’s Roosevelt Island re-roll-out speech that appears in the New York Times. According to Amy Chozick’s report, “.... In a campaign in which Republicans have emphasized the growing threat of Islamic terrorism and an unstable Middle East, Mrs. Clinton hardly mentioned foreign policy. She did speak of her experience as a senator from New York after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.... ‘As your president, I’ll do whatever it takes to keep Americans safe....’ [Hillary Clinton] said, weaving the skyline and a view of the newly built One World Trade Center into her remarks....”
JUST REMEMBER THIS ABOUT HILLARYBased on Hillary’s experience as Secretary of State during the Benghazi attacks of 9/11/2012; and Hillary’s husband’s experience, as described by George Tenant, in connection to the 9/11/2001 attacks — over all, from well prior to 9/11/2001 through the events prior to, during and/or after 9/11/2012 — Hillary’s experiences with protecting Americans just isn’t very good, at all.
In fact, her most notable quote on the subject was made ON THE RECORD, in the Congressional Record — and it is this: “... What difference does it make, four dead Americans....”
