Bill Clinton is always doing the wrong things at the wrong time.

Reader comment on item: Mr. Clinton's Meeting with Salman Rushdie Sent the Wrong Signals
in response to reader comment: Bill Clinton is always doing the wrong things at the wrong time

Submitted by Anne (United States), Aug 27, 2008 at 08:01

I am sorry to say Bill Clinton had some misconceptions of what the best policies were. Inviting Salman Rushdie to the White House, did lift him up in honor, especially at the White house. Mr. Clinton also had several opportunities to get Bin Laden and passed. His capture or death would not have stopped the terrorists, but if would have sent a message loud and clear, that the United States is not going to appease the Radicals. Ultimately, Jimmy Carter was the ultimate appeaser. The United States is paying now for their lack of convictions to stand against a sworn enemy.
