38. Did Clinton have actionable intelligence and failed to act though?

I don't really recall anybody blaming/criticizing Clinton over the first WTC attacks or even the successful 2000 USS Cole attack- but again, I don't believe that there was any actionable intelligence in either cases that Clinton's team missed AFAIK. After the first WTC attacks and the OKC bombings, he did vastly step up his anti-terrorist game and his Administration thwarted attacks (i.e. "Millennium Plot" and was really aggressive against AQ in particular. There was a VAST amount of difference in terms of how many people died in the different attacks and Clinton/Democrats didn't AFAIK blame Bush 1 for the first WTC attacks either. even though they happened relatively shortly after Clinton was inaugurated. I recall Republicans pouncing all over Clinton right after 9/11 happened even though he hadn't been POTUS for almost 8 months at that time.
