80. You are arguing about imaginary events that are not supported by anything that happened during
the Cliinton administration, of which Gore was a part.

Yes, Clinton supposedly stopped an event at LAX (only plot inside the U.S. he stopped that I recall). And Clinton took no steps after that to make airports or planes or anything else any safer, like, say, requiring doors to the pilot's area be secured.

As I said in my prior post, Clinton said he told Dummya that Al Qaeeda was the biggest threat facing the US, yet no measures were taken to make us safer, not even telling us "If you see something, say something." For that matter, we were not even told that Clinton felt that way.

And, yes, American intelligence and measures when Clinton left office, only 8 months before 9/11, were VERY much part of the problem. Hardly any Arabic translators, for one thing, leaving agencies as much as two years behind in translation, sharing information between agencies outlawed, etc.

I refuse to debate any further things an imaginary President would have done when the sole basis for your argument is what you imagine Gore would have done.

Also, please see Reply 60.
