The FBI, in 1996 and 1997, had their efforts to look at terrorism data and deal with the bin Laden issue overruled every single time by the State Department, by Susan Rice and her cronies, who were hell-bent on destroying the Sudan … Rice [cited] the suffering of Christians [in Sudan] as one reason that she doubted the integrity of the Sudanese offers. But her analysis largely overlooked the view of U.S. Ambassador to Sudan Tim Carney, who argued for calling Khartoum's bluff.
Basically she didn't want to have diplomatic ties with Sudan because of their horrible human rights record.
She along with others, allowed their liberal way of thinking to get in the way of common sense. Imagine if we would have made a deal with Sudan to hand over Bin laden. It's a possibility that 9/11 may have never happened.
TxTiger save the obligatory "Bush carried out 9/11" please.
