Fox just posted this transcript:

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,216964,00.html

Wallace tries to interject some bias in his questions and how he ends the conversation, but the stuff said by those interviewed is quite informative and interesting. None of it really refutes what Clinton said in the interview. Mostly different interpretations of the same information are given.

The closest it comes to refuting Clinton is that Scheuer firmly thinks that Clinton lied about his opportunities to kill bin Laden because Scheuer either has more faith in either the intelligence Clinton had at the time (which is questionable to say the least given Wright and Benjamen's statements) or he has more faith in the power of the President's will to rapidly overhaul the intelligence and make it a much better quality.

These supposed incidents where Clinton missed more opportunities to get Bin Laden were discussed on Democracy Now this am.

"Classic Washington Pushoff" - Fmr. Counterrorism Advisor Rand Beers on Rice's Reported Dismissal of Pre-9/11 CIA Warnings

quote:
AMY GOODMAN: Rand Beers, Michael Scheuer said yesterday on FOX that there's a document to prove that there were at least eight opportunities to kill or capture bin Laden, and that it's a lie that it couldn't have been done before 9/11, and that goes back to President Clinton. Your response?

RAND BEERS: With all due respect to Michael Scheuer, who served his country well, I'm sure there is a document -- I don't dispute that -- that he thought he could have produced an operation that could have captured bin Laden. But he was fairly well down in the hierarchy of the Central Intelligence Agency. And his suggestions and plans and ideas were all reviewed by people higher than him, most of them career CIA officials, and they were not approved. The fact that they were not approved, I think, is representative of the notion that just because you come up with a plan, doesn't mean that the plan is executable or even feasible.
