He was the sitting mayor of New York when terrorists boarded two planes and took down both towers at New York’s World Trade Centers. On that same day, terrorists also boarded a plane and attacked The Pentagon, totally demolishing one side of the building. Still on September 11, 2001, even more terrorists hijacked another plane that crashed in Pennsylvania, killing everyone on board. These four attacks killed almost 3,000 people on American soil, and injured another 6.000.
But Rudy Giuliani, the sitting New York Mayor at the time of those four attacks, has gone bonkers. He has apparently forgot what happened under his watch and under the Republican leadership of George W Bush. Giuliani, an avid supporter of Donald Trump, lied to an audience before introducing Trump at a speech on national security, telling them that there were no “successful” terrorist attacks in the eight years before Obama took office.
“Under those eight years, before Obama came along, we didn’t have any successful radical Islamic terrorist attack in the United States. They all started when Clinton and Obama got into office,” Giuliani said.
Again, almost 3,000 people died and another 6,000 were injured. If this is not the definition of “successful,” I don’t know what is.
Now I get the politics – cast the blame on Obama and hope your listeners can’t make the connection. But when you were the sitting mayor of a city that suffered the worst terrorist attack in its history, and when almost 3,000 people died under your watch, lying that there were no “successful” terrorist attack is extremely farfetched and absolutely delusional. Giuliani needs to go sit down somewhere.
