Clinton and Bin Laden:

In an interview anticipating the release of his autobiography Bill Clinton called the charge that he refused Sudan’s offer to hand over Osama bin Laden “absolutely, flatly untrue.” But on Sept. 4, 2002, Fox News’s “O’Reilly Factor” played a clip from a speech Clinton gave Feb. 15, 2002. The speech was taped by Newsmax.com.

Said Clinton: “Well, Mr. bin Laden used to live in Sudan. He was expelled from Saudi Arabia in ’91, then he went to Sudan. And we’d been hearing that the Sudanese wanted America to start meeting with them again–they released him. At the time, ’96, he had committed no crime against America, so I did not bring him here because we had no basis on which to hold him, though we knew he wanted to commit crimes against America.”
