61. Robert Oakley, Reagan's counter terrorism czar said of Clinton...
"over all, I give them very high marks, the only major criticism I have is the obsession with Osama bin Laden"
Paul Bremer, Bush's administrator of Iraq disagrees slightly with Oakley saying he believed the Clinton administration had "correctly focused on bin Laden"
