Giuliani: There Were No Terror Attacks Under Bush *Blank Stare*

Former mayors say the darnedest things...


Found this clip over on TPM Media. Rudy Giuliani stopped by Good Morning America to discuss what President Obama should and shouldn't take from the Bush strategy on terror.

No domestic terror attacks, Rudy? You mean besides the one that killed 3,000 people? Does your Bush calendar start on September 12th? Ours started in January 2001. TPM points out

Even if you don't count 9/11, there were several domestic attacks during the Bush presidency. In the fall of 2001, anthrax sent through the mail to senators and news organizations killed five people. And in December 2001, Richard Reid attempted to blow up a commercial plane with explosives packed into his shoes.
