ThinkProgress is organizing a letter email-writing campaign to convince FOX News Sunday to ask Condi Rice the same question they asked Bill Clinton:

Why didn’t you do anything in response to the USS Cole bombing?

Of course, Clinton’s available options were limited, as the intelligence community took until early 2001 to certify that, in fact, bin Laden was responsible. Bush had eight months of time between when he took office and 9/11 to take some kind of action, and he took none.

Chris Wallace claimed that he asked the question of Clinton because he “got a lot of email from viewers” requesting the question be asked. Now it’s time to ask someone who actually had an opportunity to act on the intelligence.
