Chris Wallace got an earful when Bill Clinton got in his face after Wallace asked him the wrong question about bin-Laden. Looks like the movie Path to 9/11 touched a nerve.

WALLACE: Do you think you did enough sir?
CLINTON: No, because I didn’t get him
CLINTON: But at least I tried. That’s the difference in me and some, including all the right wingers who are attacking me now. They ridiculed me for trying. They had eight months to try and they didn’t….. I tired. So I tried and failed. When I failed I left a comprehensive anti-terror strategy and the best guy in the country, Dick Clarke… So you did FOX’s bidding on this show. You did you nice little conservative hit job on me.

WALLACE: About the USS Cole?
CLINTON: tell the truth.
WALLACE: I…with Iraq and Afghanistan there’s plenty of stuff to ask.
CLINTON: Did you ever ask that? You set this meeting up because you were going to get a lot of criticism from your viewers because Rupert Murdoch is going to get a lot of criticism from your viewers for supporting my work on Climate Change. And you came here under false pretenses and said that you’d spend half the time talking about…
I think I'll watch Slick Willie on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace.
