As now made clear through the recent revelations into the Cole bombing and plans for retaliation by the Clinton administration, Clinton put together the plan to attack Afghanistan in retaliation for the Cole and passed those plans on to Bush, who then became the world's biggest monetary benefactor of the Taliban instead.

The Bush administration gave the Taliban, arguably the most repressive regime in the world, and the government harboring the most dangerous terrorist in the world, $43 million for declaring that growing opium is "against the will of god." This made the United States, in 2001, the world's greatest monetary supporter of the Taliban.

This is after Bush was advised that al qaeda was responsible for the Cole bombing and with Clinton's plan to attack Afghanistan in his hand!

This is waaaaaaay more than negligence, people.
