60 Minutes with Freeh, Willie

"On the October 9 broadcast of CBS' 60 Minutes, former FBI director Louis Freeh claimed that former president Bill Clinton did not pressure Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah during a 1998 meeting to allow the FBI to question suspects detained by the Saudis in connection with the 1996 terrorist bombing of the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, in which 19 Americans were killed. But 60 Minutes and host Mike Wallace refused to allow any on-air rebuttal from Clinton administration officials who actually attended the meeting in question. Nor did Wallace question Freeh about his anonymous source or point out that Freeh himself was not at the meeting."
