PRESIDENT CLINTON NARROWLY ESCAPED ATTEMPT ON HIS LIFE
Former US President Bill Clinton was just minutes away from assassination by Osama Bin Laden-inspired terrorists, claims a new book.
Clinton was saved before his car drove over a bridge the Philippines where a bomb had been planted during his visit to the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum in Manila in 1996.
‘The Daily Telegraph’, on Wednesday 12/23/2009, reported that at one point during his stay, Clinton was scheduled to visit a local politician in central Manila. His route was through a bridge. But As his motorcade was about to set off, Secret Service officers received a “crackly message” saying agents had picked up a transmission using the words “bridge” and “wedding” – a terrorist code word for assassination.
The motorcade was rerouted and agents later found a bomb under a bridge. An investigation revealed it had been masterminded by Osama Bin Laden.
In “The Death of American Virtue: Clinton vs Starr” by Ken Gormley, a USA law professor, writes: “The assassination attempt was never made public.”
