Bill Clinton On bin Laden, September 10th, 2001…

Found this on MSNBC, in an article by Alex Seitz-Wald. Yet another random comment that takes on considerable historical and (potentially) political significance. The former president was speaking at a company event (J.T. Campbell & Co. Pty. Ltd.) in Melbourne, and one of the attendees had a recording of the event. Here’s what he apparently said, as per Seltz-Waid’s article:

“And I’m just saying, you know, if I were Osama bin Laden — he’s very smart guy, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about him — and I nearly got him once,” Clinton is heard saying. “I nearly got him. And I could have killed him, but I 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. And so I didn’t do it.”

Pretty interesting.
