The scumbag speaks

Writing in The New York Times, Mr Sleaze, Bill Clinton, has added fuel to the flames of partisanship by linking today's protests against the aggressive statism of the Obama administration with the 1994 Oklahoma City bombing:
We should never forget what drove the bombers, and how they justified their actions to themselves. They took to the ultimate extreme an idea advocated in the months and years before the bombing by an increasingly vocal minority: the belief that the greatest threat to American freedom is our government, and that public servants do not protect our freedoms, but abuse them. On that April 19, the second anniversary of the assault of the Branch Davidian compound near Waco, deeply alienated and disconnected Americans decided murder was a blow for liberty.
Nice bit of spin there. That would be the massacre of the Branch Davidians, with concealed sharpshooters firing at them when they tried to escape the building the FBI had set on fire. And that would be the bombing in which the active role of an FBI agent provocateur was very carefully never investigated, nor the interesting coincidence that FBI personnel were all absent from the Harrah building when McVeigh blew it up.

Not a scab I would have thought the scumbag should be picking. He is, and always was, an evil man, and one of the saddest things about contemporary Britain is that Blair and his followers consciously modelled 'New' Labour on Clinton's example.
