Bill Clinton's Fantasy: Gee, I Wish I Could Have Been as Awesome as Obama by Whacking bin Laden [JWF]

The propaganda documentary forthcoming from Team Obama, narrated by Forrest Gump and directed by Al Gore's co-conspirator Steven Guggenheim, has already given us priceless moments such as this clip where Guggenheim said there was nothing negative in the 17-minute film because Obama was just too perfect and the only negative has been the obstructionist Republicans.

Now as the buildup continues before the release Thursday (admit it, you're very excited), along comes Bill Clinton in a supporting role, admitting he'd hoped to have been as shrewd as Obama by ordering a daring raid on terror kingpin Osama bin Laden.

Former President Bill Clinton says in a forthcoming Obama campaign documentary that he hopes he’d have made the same decision as President Obama to authorize the daring raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

“He took the harder and more honorable path,” Clinton says in a newly released excerpt of “The Road We’ve Traveled.” “When I saw what had happened, I thought to myself, ‘I hope that’s the call I would have made.’”

This from the man who bombed a Sudanese aspirin factory on the day Monica Lewinsky was testifying. Oh, to go back in time, he'd have made the right call. Except he didn't.
In 1993, the first World Trade Center bombing killed six people.

In 1998, the bombing of two U.S. embassies in Africa killed 224.

Both were the work of al-Qaida and bin Laden, who in 1998 declared holy war on America, making him arguably the most wanted man in the world.

In 1998, President Clinton announced, “We will use all the means at our disposal to bring those responsible to justice, no matter what or how long it takes.”

NBC News has obtained, exclusively, extraordinary secret video, shot by the U.S. government. It illustrates an enormous opportunity the Clinton administration had to kill or capture bin Laden. Critics call it a missed opportunity.

H/T Ben K.

Remember the Clinton fury over "The Path to 9/11" and the subsequent revisions to it? Sure seemed like he had plenty to obfuscate about his action, or lack thereof. And let's not forget about Sandy Berger. Or have we already?

If you can stomach it, here's a clip from the Guggenheim puff-piece:
