"Monumental Liar": Ex-CIA Officer Disputes New Clinton Audio On Bin Laden

Fox News interviewed the former head of the CIA's bin Laden unit, who disputed a newly released audio tape by former President Bill Clinton.

Clinton's statement came on the day before the 9/11 attacks at an address to Australian business leaders and the audio was obtained by Sky News Australia.

"I'm just saying, you know, if I were Usama 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 said on the recording. 

"I nearly got him. And 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."

Scheuer (seen in the above photo) explained that the situation, in Dec. 1998, did not unfold the way Clinton claimed, calling the former president a "liar."
