The Final Days – Barbara Olson

A gentleman that I had just met asked if I had read the book by the woman that was killed in the airplane crash of 9/11. I knew that Barbara Olson had written two books Hell to Pay and The Final Days. I had not read either book.

The gentleman loaned me “The Final Days. The Last Desperate Abuses of Power by the Clinton White House” within one day I had read the book. It is an appropriate time to read this book that was published in late 2001.

First, a little history Barbara Olson had completed the manuscript prior to boarding a plane for Los Angeles on September 11, 2001. She had approved the final draft. However, she never got the chance to see the book in print or autograph one copy. She unfortunately was on one of four airplanes that began America’s Defense on Terror. Her plane crashed into the Pentagon.

The publisher’s wrestled with whether to publish the book or not. However, it is a story that would have never been told had Barbara Olson not told it and the story needed to be recorded for all eternity.

It documents the Clinton administration (Puff Billy and H.Rod – a Gangsta love story) and the final pardons, commuted sentences, executive orders and all around misdeeds. No president (and his co-president as Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton likes to be referred to as) in the history of our nation has issued as many executive orders, pardon’s and commuted sentences. The most egregious was the pardon of a fugitive of justice, a “man” (using the term loosely) that was too cowardly to stand before a jury of his peers. A “man” that while safe on land outside the U.S.A renounced his citizenship. However, “Slick Willy” and as the liberal New York Observer called her “Slick Hillie” pardoned Mark Rich.


Because his ex-wife Denise Rich gave $1.2 million to the DNC (Democrat National Committee), $75,000.00 to Senator Hillary’s first Senate campaign and $45,000.00 to the Clinton Library in Little Rock, Arkansas. Here is Chuck Schumer the colleague from New York of “Senator Shoplift” (Newsday) said about the Mark Rich pardon. “To my mind, there can be no justification for pardoning a fugitive from justice. It does not matter that the fugitive believed the case against him was flawed or weak. It does not matter that the fugitive was enormously philanthropic. Pardoning a fugitive stands our justice system on its head and makes a mockery of it. One of the great strengths of our criminal justice system is that it is just that, a system. By allowing someone to choose to opt out of that system by fleeing and then opts into that system to get a pardon perverts the entire system entirely.”

Here is what Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee said about it then” I think people are beginning to feel that the bridge to the 21st century is a toll bridge that people have to pay to get across.” Huckabee went on to say “If they [the pardons] look suspicious to James Carville, I think it’s fair to say to say they look suspicious to everybody.”

What three quotes sum up the Co-Presidency of William Jefferson Clinton and Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton?

“I experimented with marijuana a time or two. And I didn’t like it, and didn’t inhale, and never tried it again.”

“I am going to say this again: I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky."

“It depends on what the meaning ‘is’ is. If the – if he – if ‘is’ means is and never has been, that is not - that is one thing. If it means there is none, that was a completely true statement.”
