Book Says Osama bin Laden Plotted to Kill Pres. Clinton in the Philippines in 1996

WASHINGTON –The U.S. Secret Service averted, at the last minute, a potential assassination attempt by Osama bin Laden on President Clinton in 1996 in the Philippines, according to a new book.

The London  Telegraph reported on the matter, attributing the information to a book “The Death of American Virtue: Clinton vs Starr” by professor Ken Gormley.

The paper said the foiled attack came during Clinton’s visit to the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum in Manila.

The paper reported that Clinton was supposed to travel across a bridge at one point.

“But as the presidential motorcade was about to set off, secret service officers received a ‘crackly message in one earpiece’ saying intelligence agents had picked up a message suggesting an attack was imminent,” the paper reported.

“The transmission used the words “bridge” and “wedding” – a terrorists code word for assassination,” the paper reported. The motorcade was rerouted.

The paper reported that authorities later discovered that a bomb had been placed under the bridge.
