Further proof that USAWeekend is worthless
I knew I should have just tossed it like I usually do when I open my Sunday paper. Get a load of this crap from the front Q&A section:

With events such as 9/11 and the war in Iraq happening in the wake of his presidency, does Bill Clinton regret he didn't take care of these foreign affairs in office? If so, will he express it in his autobiography?
Eric Marshall, Hammond, Ind.

He hasn't expressed regret yet, so unless he's saving it for the book, it's doubtful his memoirs will show contrition on any topic. Publisher Knopf, which paid a record $12 million advance, doesn't expect a manuscript until late this year and claims to know nothing about the contents. Given that Sen. Hillary Clinton's "Living History", in which she shares few new details on the juiciest bits of her own history, is a best seller, the ex-president may not have to address any substantive or intimate issues to sell his book.

1. Where to start ...
How could Clinton "take care of" 9/11 when he wasn't president when it happened??? Also, the person who answered hasn't been paying attention because Clinton has said numerous times he regrets not being able to get bin Laden. BTW, I'm sure the Big Dog will use the opportunity in his memoirs to talk in great detail about what he did do to fight terrorism.

2. Damn that Reagan to HELL..
If he has been staying awake and had not wasted so much time on the Commies & the Contras, maybe he could have foreseen the rise of the Taliban as the evil it was.. THAT would have prevented 9/11..

and lets not forget Eisenhower...he could have taken harsher steps with Russia, so that they would not have been in a position to invade Afghanistan and then they would not have needed bin Laden.....

.. these little freaks are "Clinton-fixated". It's a disease with them.. Interesting isn't it?.. The attach the 9/11 catastrophe to Clinton, but the economy was NOT his doing.. :eyes:
