Amazing attempt at revisionist history? .....or convenient typo?

Nice to see that George W. gets the blame for not going after Osama while he was GOVERNOR of Texas. Far be it from the press to expect the PRESIDENT of the UNITED STATES at the time, Bill Clinton, to do it.

"The report revealed that in a previously undisclosed secret diplomatic mission, Saudi Arabia won a commitment from the Taliban to expel bin Laden in 1998. But a clash between the Taliban’s leader, Mullah Mohammad Omar, and Saudi officials scuttled the arrangement, and Bush did not follow up."

Guess this short-term memory loss (or is it long-term now?) is catching on....(Thanks to Instapundit for these). The New York Daily News needs some chronology lessons while again trying to blame Bush for things that happened while he was Governor of Texas.

"One event that panel members found galling was why there was no retaliation by either administration for the bombing of the destroyer Cole in early 2001."

Early 2001, October 12, 2000, same thing I guess. As long as you don't take into account that it was Clinton who was president then, and therefore not Bush's job to be retaliating. I hate when I get so worked up about accuracy.
