The U.S. will fight terrorism "on every front" by pursuing a three-part strategy, Clinton said. He outlined this strategy as: forming a world coalition with zero tolerance for terrorism as the goal, giving law enforcement officers "strong counter-terrorism tools," and improving security in the nation's airports and on airplanes...Clinton's $1 billion plan goes beyond airport security to include stepped-up security at military and diplomatic facilities overseas and better protection at "high profile" public sites in the U.S., including government buildings, national landmarks and national parks.
The Clinton administration, convinced there may be new attacks against U.S. embassies, has dispatched counter-terrorism experts to diplomatic missions around the world to assess their vulnerability and determine if any should be closed immediately, the New York Times reported Tuesday. The Times said administration officials believe that terrorists associated with Osama bin Laden, the exiled Saudi millionaire the United States has accused of masterminding the two embassy bombings in East Africa last month, are planning a new round of attacks. The report cited unnamed administration sources.
The Narrative is lengthy and detailed. It is the view of this Office that the details are crucial to an informed evaluation of the testimony, the credibility of witnesses, and the reliability of other evidence. Many of the details reveal highly personal information; many are sexually explicit. This is unfortunate, but it is essential. The President's defense to many of the allegations is based on a close parsing of the definitions that were used to describe his conduct. We have, after careful review, identified no manner of providing the information that reveals the falsity of the President's statements other than to describe his conduct with precision.
Partial descriptions emerging yesterday indicated that the report will include graphic accounts of Clinton's sexual activities with Lewinsky, detailing about a dozen encounters in the private study off the Oval Office as well as instances when they engaged in explicit telephone sex.
This is a very grave day for the House of Representatives, indeed it is a solemn time, I think, in our nation
This is always an important day for our country, for the reasons that the vice president said. It is an unusual and, I think, unusually important day today. I may not be quite as easy with my words today as I have been in years past, and I was up rather late last night thinking about and praying about what I ought to say today. And rather unusual for me, I actually tried to write it down.
We are all poorer because of the mistake of man [Clinton] who has squandered a historic opportunity, disgracing himself in the eyes of the world and his family. Representative Cynthia McKinney (D, Georgia), September 11, 1998
The General Accounting Office reported today that Starr has spent more than $40 million on the investigation of President Clinton, with nearly a 10th of that on the Monica Lewinsky investigation.
Please don't misconstrue our fervor for our cause to any lack of respect or appreciation for your high office. But our most formidable opponent has not been opposing counsel nor any political party; it has been the cynicism, the widespread conviction that all politics and all politicians are, by definition, corrupt and venal. That cynicism is an acid eating away at the vital organs of American public life. It is a clear and present danger, because it blinds us to the nobility and the fragility of being a self-governing people. Once in a while I do worry about the future. I wonder if, after this culture war is over, this one we are engaged in, an America will survive that is worth fighting for to defend.
President Bush has drafted an executive order to create the Office of National Preparedness to address terrorist attacks. Housed under the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the mission of the Office of National Preparedness will be to coordinate with other departments and agencies to integrate a plan at the federal, state and local levels to respond to such an attack. Currently Vice President Dick Cheney has been charged with overseeing a national effort to obtain input from other agencies, states and local governments in the creation of the Office of National Preparedness.
Today we've had a national tragedy. Two airplanes have crashed into the World Trade Center in an apparent terrorist attack on our country. I have spoken to the vice president, to the governor of New York, to the director of the FBI, and I've ordered that the full resources of the federal government go to help the victims and their families and to conduct a full-scale investigation to hunt down and to find those folks who committed this act.
