Four years ago today President Clinton decided to go after Al Qaeda by unloading some weapons –an activity that presidents are usually the best and the worst at- on Afghanistan and Sudan.
The strikes hit various targets, including a pharmaceutical factory in Khartoum, Sudan, but they got the job done and Al Qaeda hasn’t even thought of attacking America or Americans since.
About four months later Clinton decided that the usual belligerence towards Iraq was not enough and began Operation Desert Fox, with honors to a Nazi General. This prompted at least one American to say, “There will be no Christmas in Iraq this year” and was sufficient to wipe out the threat posed by Iraq.
