Bill Clinton: I ‘Could Have Killed’ Bin Laden, Just hours before the September 11, 2001 attack on the United States, former President Bill Clinton allegedly said he “could have killed” Osama bin Laden, but decided against it due to the number of civilians who also would have been killed.

On Wednesday, Sky News host Paul Murray aired a previously unreleased audio recording of Clinton speaking to a group of Australian businessman on September 10, 2001. The former president of Australia’s Liberal Party, Michael Kroger, was in attendance at the Melbourne event, and appeared on Murray’s program to unveil the tape.

“Osama bin Laden — he’s a very smart guy, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about him, and I nearly got him once,” Clinton says in the tape, answering a question about t*rror*sm. “I nearly got him. And I could have gotten, I could have killed him, but I would have to destroy a little town called Kandahar in Afghanistan and kill 300 innocent women and children. And then I would have been no better than him. And so I didn’t do it.”
