Clinton Described His Chance to Get Osama Bin Laden

Hours before the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001, former President Bill Clinton told an audience in Australia about his missed chance to kill attack mastermind Osama bin Laden, ABC News reports.

Said Clinton: "I'm just saying, you know, if I were Osama bin Laden ... He's a very smart guy. I spent a lot of time thinking about him. And I nearly got him once. I nearly got him. And I could have killed him, but I would have had to destroy a little town called Kandahar in Afghanistan and kill 300 innocent women and children, and then I would have been no better than him."

Sky News has the audio.
