Fox news is already coining the interview as "Clinton gets Crazed", and today on FOX, Chris Wallace talked about the interview.

The part of the interview they showed occurs pretty far into the interview (Transcript here), after Wallace keeps pushing Clinton on bin Laden. The interview was suppose to be a 50/50 split on the Clinton Initiative and anything else. Within about two minutes, Wallace turns to the Path to 9/11 and bin Laden. Reading from the transcript, Wallace almost seems shocked by the fact that Clinton took the issue head on and wouldn't back down. He even asks Wallace why George Bush hasn't been asked about his inactions in the months leading up to the September 11th attacks.

Something very interesting Clinton brings up is the fact that when he did launch operations against bin Laden, Republicans quickly questioned his motives. Arlen Specter and Dan Coats (R-IN), were two very outspoken Senators who tried to associate Clinton going after bin Laden in 1998 with the movie "Wag the Dog" and that his bombing of an al Qaeda meeting was to divert attention from the Lewisky scandal.

(Update below the fold)

After writing this, I have noticed that FOX has changed the video caption to this:


It is now a "Strong Reaction". Fortunately Think Progress took a screenshot of the original title, which was "Clinton Gets Crazed":


I wonder why they decided to change it all the sudden?
