Ann Coulter’s way too free in tossing around the word “treason” to describe political opponents such as Bill Clinton. Still, the guy was selling us out for a song all along. Most obviously egregious, he signed executive waivers to let top campaign contributors sell sensitive technology to China.
Thus I find it easy enough to believe when I see stuff like this, from Drudge’s preview of former FBI director Louis Freeh’s new book My FBI : Bringing Down the Mafia, Investigating Bill Clinton, and Fighting the War on Terror:
Freeh says the former president let down the American people and the families of victims of the Khobar Towers terror attack in Saudi Arabia. After promising to bring to justice those responsible for the bombing that killed 19 and injured hundreds, Freeh says Clinton refused to personally ask Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah to allow the FBI to question bombing suspects the kingdom had in custody – the only way the bureau could secure the interviews, according to Freeh. Freeh writes in the book, “Bill Clinton raised the subject only to tell the crown prince that he understood the Saudis’ reluctance to cooperate and then he hit Abdullah up for a contribution to the Clinton Presidential Library.” Says Freeh, “That’s a fact that I am reporting.”
Of course, it’s not like the Bush presidents haven’t had their noses just as deep up the Saud family’s behinds. What’s up with all that?
