Damn, almost a year out of office and some loons just can't stop blaming Bush for everything wrong with the planet:
Mind you, this idiot has led a crusade to regulate conservative radio with the "Fairness Doctrine" and once accused Karl Rove of planting the CBS Rathergate memos. Of course you'd have to be a liberal/Bush hater to think that catching bin Laden wouldn't have actually helped Bush politically, much less have given more support to head into Iraq. But when you're a liberal still suffering from BDS, common sense just never seems to enter the picture.
Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-N.Y.) on Monday accused former President George W. Bush of “intentionally” letting Osama bin Laden escape during the American invasion of Afghanistan.
“Look what happened with regard to our invasion into Afghanistan, how we apparently intentionally let bin Laden get away,” Hinchey said during an interview on MSNBC.
“That was done by the previous administration because they knew very well that if they would capture al Qaeda, there would be no justification for an invasion in Iraq,” the Democratic congressman continued. “There’s no question that the leader of the military operations of the U.S. called back our military, called them back from going after the head of al Qaeda.”
When host David Shuster followed up to ask if Hinchey really thought Bush “deliberately let Osama bin Laden get away,” the congressman responded: “Yes, I do.”
