Wallace said Sunday he was surprised by Clinton's "conspiratorial view" of "a very non-confrontational question, 'Did you do enough to connect the dots and go after Al Qaida?'"
"All I did was ask him a question, and I think it was a legitimate news question. I was surprised that he would conjure up that this was a hit job," Wallace said in a telephone interview.
Well, that all depends what is is.
Clinton said he tried to contract killing one man but it didn't pan out - how was he to know they'd come and get us after he dropped the ball for Monica.
"We contracted with people to kill him. I got closer to killing him than anybody's gotten since," he said.
...and here we all are with smirks on our faces:
He told Wallace, "And you got that little smirk on your face and you think you're so clever, but I had responsibility for trying to protect this country. I tried and I failed to get bin Laden. I regret it, but I did try and I did everything I thought I responsibly could."
The interview was taped Friday during Clinton's three-day Global Initiative conference.
