Clinton Wars" Excerpts: How the GOP Undercut Clinton's Efforts
to Fight Terrorism
SPECIAL GUEST COMMENTARY
This week, BuzzFlash.com, is pleased to post two excerpts of Sidney Blumenthal's 822-page book on "The Clinton Wars."
With permission of the author and his publisher (Farrar, Strauss and Giroux), BuzzFlash is first offering a section (beginning on page 656 of the book) that details how the Republican Congress and former FBI Director Louis Freeh (who allied himself with the anti-Clinton forces) undercut Clinton's efforts to fight terrorism. The excerpt also touches upon how after the impeachment trial, pseudo-scandal mongering by the media -- including the New York Times -- helped deflect public attention from President Clinton's struggle with terrorism.
