So former FBI Director Louis Freeh has a new book coming out, and to publicize it he goes on 60 Minutes. There he tells his version of his attempts to get President Clinton to push the Saudis - specifically then-Crown Prince Abdullah - to give the FBI access to the suspects in the Khobar Towers bombing.
Freeh claims that President Clinton not only didn't press the Crown Prince but spoke sympathetically of Saudi refusal and asked for a donation to his Presidential Library.
Now I don't know if Freeh is correctly describing events or not. Obviously I despise Bill Clinton and this story fits my worldview. But who do the Clinton crowd find to deny this and call Louis Freeh a liar. You couldn't guess who they think is a credible witness.
