Clinton on Sept. 10, 2001: I Could Have Killed Bin Laden

Former President Bill Clinton was in Australia the day before the September 11 attacks when he described a chance he passed up to take down Osama bin Laden. "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 just didn't do it," he said on tape. The recording was lost and forgotten about until last week, when Michael Kroger, the former head of the Liberal Party in the Australian state of Victoria, remembered he had the tape, and Sky News in Australia played it on Thursday.

First Ebola Patient to Arrive Saturday in Atlanta

One of the two Americans infected with Ebola will arrive Saturday at an Air Force Base near Atlanta aboard an specially outfitted jet. The first patient will be either Dr. Kent Brantly or Nancy Writebol, both of whom have been gravely ill with the virus in Liberia. U.S. health officials were scrambling Friday to retrieve the two from the West African country. Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, which has a special isolation unit that it operates in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, was originally asked to treat one patient, but a request for the second patient came up minutes before Friday's press conference.
