Forewarned is Forearmed

According to a newly-unearthed
long-lost videotape
of Bill Clinton speaking

to a group of businessmen in Australia
on the tenth
of September 2001

he said he "nearly got"
and "could have killed"
Osama Bin Laden

but he "would have to destroy
a little town called Kandahar
in Afghanistan

and kill 300
innocent women and children

and then I would have been
no better than him.”

In response
key Republicans made
some profound talking points
such as

"What are you talking about?
Military actions
never have unintended consequences"

"We are always better"

and "Regardless of doing something
we wanted our party to do

we for sure would've found

a way to blame you
for not taking action sooner."
