Former NATO Supreme Allied Commander, Gen. Wesley Clark, tells CNN's Jake Tapper about President Clinton's chance to take in Osama Bin Laden, prior to the 9/11 attack.
“There was an opportunity to go on the ground and take Osama bin laden," Clark says. "In that case the U.S. military proposed a set of measures that would have required a lot of military back up force and a lot of logistics and ultimately the military put so much weight in the effort I think the president said it wasn’t feasible to do this."
The retired commander did note that there may have been additional opportunities to bring in bin Laden, of which he is unaware.
