Bill Clinton

Newly released tapes reveal former President Bill Clinton had Usama bin Laden in his cross-hairs, but chose not to kill him.

FOX News Radio's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

President Clinton made the revelation on September 10, 2001, just hours before the 9/11 attacks. FOX's sister network Sky News acquired the tapes. In them, Clinton said he "nearly got him".

(Clinton) "I could have killed him. But I would have had to destroy a little town called Kandahar in Afghanistan and killed 300 innocent women and children."

The 9/11 panel has found there were several missed opportunities to go after bin Laden and al Qaeda before the terror attacks that killed nearly 3,000 Americans.
