CLINTON, THE CIA, AND BIN LADEN: Clinton didn’t actually authorize the CIA to kill Osama, as he’s claimed, according to Newsweek. Someone should ask Sandy Berger about this. (Via Don Surber).

UPDATE: More thoughts from Captain Ed. “I’ve written before that pursuing partisan blame for 9/11 is a waste of time. It gets in the way of determining where failures occurred and developing the proper approaches to avoid them in the future. The truth is that the issues that created these failures stretched back for years, probably decades in terms of interpretation of intelligence law. However, it gets difficult to remember that when former presidents essentially lie about their roles on national television. Given Clinton’s unique history, this prevarication and self-aggrandizement comes as no surprise, but it is still pretty disappointing.” This won’t help Hillary.

ANOTHER UPDATE: More thoughts from Ron Coleman.
