President Clinton was still president, but his term was almost up. He learned who attacked the Cole and gave that information, along with some suggested responses, to G.W. who was about to be president.

That made sense to me, as G.W. would have to live with the consequences of his response.

That information belonged to our national security and intelligence apparatus and would have been passed along through the national security advisor regardless of what Bill did or did not do.

besides that, Al-Qaeda immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. . .

Contrast that with Bush41, who invaded Somalia without so much as a head's-up just before turning over the reins to Clinton.

Them claiming wasn't sufficient evidence. My point wasn't that the successor won't find out anyway, but the incoming president will live with the consequences of our reaction/response.

He wimped out.......
The Office of the President has a responsibility, regardless of who is sitting in the chair.

BC failed that responsibility.
