Two days ago on an internet brodcast of the Art Bell show people calling
in were saying that it was being reported on tv that Clinton was
considering a strike against Iraq as a diversionary tactic to take the
heat off the scandal. Of course I took this with a grain of salt because
of the sensationalist nature of Art's programs, but this morning that
story was also reported on CNN. On the morning that it was reported on
Art Bell there was no such story on that mornings CNN program or on the
NBC broadcast news in Washington, D.C.
It is obvious that Clinton has emulated Kennedy, but I think it would be
unbeliveable that he would even think about commiting a military error
like the Bay of Pigs.
