US was offered OBL in Feb 2001
During a February 27, 2001 press conference at the White House, Ari Fleischer, the White House Press Secretary was asked by a reporter:
Oh.... so 9/11 wasn't Clinton's fault, and it wasn't Bush's fault, it was Ari Fleischer's fault! Clearly he didn't let Bush know, because anyone that had an offer for Osama bin Laden and didn't take it would have to be considered criminally negligent... no wonder Ari quit in 2003.
At least that's been cleared up.
Oh, almost forgot, here's the video of that press conference, check this out...
