Chris Wallace‘s second question begins by saying "When we announced that you were going to be on Fox News Sunday, I got a lot of email from viewers. And I gotta say, I was surprised, most of them wanted me to ask you this question: Why didn’t you do more to put Bin Laden and Al Queda out of business when you were president?"
