WASHINGTON (CNN) - When asked if they would go after Osama bin Laden knowing that the resulting attack would hurt innocent civilians, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton defended her husband for trying to take him out while he was president.
"He did fire missiles at a training camp," Clinton said. "He had intelligence that's where bin Laden was because by that time, bin Laden had already bombed our country and demonstrated his hostility towards the United States."
Clinton said she would also attempt to take him out if there would be limited collateral damage.
"We would give the order to do it knowing what a weighty responsibility that is," she said.
