Ninjas vs. Al Qaeda

Bill Clinton 001I copied and pasted this from an old post of mine on a different blogging site. While reading The 9/11 Report for class I came about this excerpt:
At some point during this period, President Clinton expressed his frustration with the lack of military options to take out Bin Ladin and the al Qaeda leadership, remarking to General Hugh Shelton, “You know, it would scare the shit out of al-Qaeda if suddenly a bunch of black ninjas repelled out of helicopters into the middle of their camp.”
Yes, ex-President Clinton actually said this. No, I am not pulling your chain. This can be found in chapter six under the "Afghan Eyes" section, if you have the document readily available.
