Hinchey led an effort to impeach George W. Bush in the Summer of 2008, when Bush was just a few months away from leaving office anyway. But then again, this is Ithaca.
Now Hinchey has accused the Bush administration of
“Look what happened with regard to our invasion into Afghanistan, how we apparently intentionally let bin Laden get away,” Hinchey said during an interview on MSNBC.Here's the video (h/t HotAir):
“That was done by the previous administration because they knew very well that if they would capture al Qaeda, there would be no justification for an invasion in Iraq,” the Democratic congressman continued.
“There’s no question that the leader of the military operations of the U.S. called back our military, called them back from going after the head of al Qaeda.”
When host David Shuster followed up to ask if Hinchey really thought Bush “deliberately let Osama bin Laden get away,” the congressman responded:
“Yes, I do.”
But I don't want you to feel sorry for me for having a Congressman such as Hinchey. My full time residence, and where I vote, is in Rhode Island. So Hinchey is not really my Congressman.
My "real" Congressman is Patrick Kennedy.
Now you can feel sorry for me.
