Bill and Hillary Clinton were asleep at the wheel before 9/11

This is the most devastating attack that McCain will use against Hillary. Not only is she less experienced than he is on national security and has flip-flopped on the War in Iraq, the Bankruptcy bill, No Child Left Behind, and a host of other issues, the Clinton foreign policy, which she claims as a part of her 35 years of experience, oversaw the massive rise of Osama Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda and the Clinton administration's woefully inept efforts to halt the march of terrorism to our shores. The Clinton administration's anti-terrorism efforts will be huge fodder for McCain in the gemeral election.
The bottom line is that Al-Qaeda planned, funded, and organized the 9/11 attacks right under the Clintons' noses. They built their bases in full view of the world in Afganistan, while the Clinton Administration was distracted by its own domestic scandals.
McCain will say: The 3AM call did come to Bill and Hillary Clinton during the years of the 1990's before 9/11, but they failed to pick up the phone. They didn't halt the gathering storm that began with the first WTC attack, the embassy bombings, and the USS Cole. As a result, 3000 Americans were defenseless against the evil of Osama Bin Laden. I will never let you or your children down.
