So let me get this straight…
Under President Clinton’s watch between 1993 and 1997, the following terrorist attacks took place by Islamic fundamentalists and/or al-Qaeda.
- February 26, 1993 – World Trade Center bombing in NYC
- November 13, 1995 – US Military Complex bombing Saudi Arabia
- June 25, 1996 – Khobar Towers bombings in Saudi Arabia
And in the face of the growing threat to America by the Islamists, the Clinton Administration naturally began spying on Diana, Princess of Wales.
An official British report into the 1997 car crash that killed Princess Diana will say the U.S. Secret Service was bugging her phone on the night of her death, according to the London newspaper the Observer.
The official report into the Paris crash by former Metropolitan Police chief John Stevens will be published Thursday.
Hey, maybe I’m ignoring the 9/11 Commission’s conclusion that America suffered a “lack of imagination” before the September 11th attacks. I guess a very wise person in the Clinton White House felt the danger of a Perfume Dirty Bomb was the real threat to America at the time. Maybe it was Sandy “Sticky Fingers” Berger?
And so much for the faux Democrat outrage on warrantless wiretapping. Clinton had apparently reverted back to the J. Edgar Hoover days!
Meantime, Osama bin Laden plotted to kill 3,000 Americans for years before 2001.
**UPDATE** – National Security Agency denies Diana spying.
The National Security Agency is working on a statement that will deny eavesdropping on Princess Diana, a U.S. intelligence official tells CBS News national security correspondent David Martin.
An official British report into the crash that killed Princess Diana concluded that a U.S. intelligence agency was bugging Diana’s phone without the approval of its British counterpart on the night of her death, according to British newspaper reports.
Well, that’s all fine and good for the NSA… but the original British reports say “US Secret Service.” WTF is going on here?
