Giuliani Lies: The US Has Suffered a Terrorist Attack under Obama

Rudy Giuliani was on ABC’s Good Morning America today where he parroted the conservative big lie that no domestic terror attacks occurred under George W. Bush, but he added that we have had one under Obama. Giuliani said, “We had no domestic attacks under Bush. We have had one under Obama.”

Here is the video courtesy of Media Matters:

While he was repeating the right wing talking points that this is really a war on terror, Giuliani said, “What he should be doing is following the right things that Bush did, one of the right things he did was treat this as a war on terror, we had no domestic attacks under Bush, we had one under Obama…”

Since when is an unsuccessful attempted terrorist attack a terrorist attack? An attempt is not the same thing as a terrorist attack. Giuliani is lying. There have been no, zip, zilch, zero terrorist attacks while Obama has been in office. Under Giuliani’s definition of a terrorist attack, the shoe bomber, Richard Reid’s attempt would qualify as a terrorist attack. The plot to blow up the Sears Tower would qualify as a terrorist attack, and the plot to attack Ft. Dix would also be a terrorist attack.

Once attempts, or plots, start being counted as attacks the right wing argument quickly falls apart. The truth is that there have been attempted acts of terrorism on US soil after 9/11, while George W. Bush was president. By the way, didn’t Giuliani seem absolutely giddy while talking about terrorism? Giuliani ranted about how 30 hours was not enough time to question a terror suspect, but to Rudy has never actually questioned a terror suspect, so how would he know?

Giuliani’s only qualification as terror expert is that he was the mayor of New York City when 9/11 happened. If this makes Giuliani a terrorism expert, then Ray Nagin is an expert on hurricanes. Rudy Giuliani is not only a fake and a fraud, but as he demonstrated on GMA, he is also a liar

  1. Mr 9-11 is clearly suffering from GOPPERISM; a fatal and contagious disease wherein speech is attacked by an Orwellian virus where black is white.

    The media should protect him from embarrassing himself further like this by ignoring him. Allow him to recover in private. For that matter, Cheney could use a break.

    And gee, isn’t that why we had an election? Because the people were tired of these clowns? But the media can’t stop shoving these sick people down our throats. Right along with the Gosslins or whatever their names are.


  2. It’s a shame when a supposed news network of integrity let’s the lies of the GOP run rampant as if they are truth. It’s the responsibility of the networks to make sure the interviews are accurate not just sensationalism. The average American thinks that he can trust the main news networks with the truth. Wake up America. The worst terrorist attack in America’s history took place on 9/11 under the watch of Bush, Dick Cheney
    and then Mayor Giuliani. Cheney and Giuliani’s interests are obviously not for the country. The main stream media is becoming quite questionable for any serious news or truth politically. We should protest the networks and demand facts and stop this GOP nightmare against the country under the guise of “free speech”.

  3. Under Giuliani’s definition of a terrorist attack, the shoe bomber, Richard Reid’s attempt would qualify as a terrorist attack.

    The plot to blow up the AIRPLANE by the Fruit of the Loon Underwear Bomber must not count also. Bring on November I need more Red Meat.

  5. He is deliberately lying, as opposed to being delusional. The absolute worst one was 9-11, which the Bush administration was warned about a month before but chose not to take action to forestall. Then there were the anthrax attacks, which killed 5 Americans, including 2 postal workers here in DC. That was in November 2001.

    The shoe bomber attempted his attack in December 2001. Then, there were the DC snipers who killed at least 15 people in Washington State, Arizona, Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia, DC, Maryland, and Virginia. They wounded at least
    5 others who survived, including a 13-year-old boy.

    Guilani and his ilk are both intellectually dishonest and morally bankrupt, because their lies are intended to support a totally false narrative. That is that Democrats in general, and Obama in particular, are “soft on terrorism.” They consider fighting terrorism a strong GOP point, notwithstanding that their narrative has no grounding in reality. And it is totally disgusting that they are trying to politicize a serious issue that affects all Americans.

  6. I see a whole bunch of clowns here. Try Ft. Hood morons. Of course
    none of you are intelligent enough to think of that. For that you
    need a brain. But of course that is why you morons love Obama so
    much. He lacks one too.

  7. We know all about Fort Hood, in which 13 people died and others
    were injured. Just the same, it doesn’t begin to remotely approach
    the nearly 3,000 killed on 9-11, 15 killed and at least 5 injured
    around the country by the DC snipers, or the 5 people who died of
    antrax poisoning thru mail during the Bush administration. As for
    the Fort Hood shooter, there were a number of warning signs that
    should have alerted his superiors that something was very wrong
    with him. He should have been discharged from the military. What it
    all boils down to is that the GOP’s attempt to twist the truth
    about the occurrence of terrorist attacks doesn’t work with people
    who know better. The GOP mantra on being superior in preventing
    terrorism is not grounded in reality or truth.

  8. Really? NO terrorist attack on our soil since Obama took office? EXACTLY what was the Fort Hood attack from Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, then?

  9. DC Snipers? Ummm…that was just a plain ordinary nutcase murderer. How do you equate THAT to a terrorist, unless you want to go through every murder that has been committed under Obama. You are being disingenuous , at best. And trying to explain away Ft Hood by saying it shouldn’t have happened? Isn’t Obama the Commander-in Chief of our armed forces? Then he is ultimately responsible, is he not?

    The finger pointing of the left at Bush for everything that goes on in our country and lack of a backbone to stand up and take responsibility is the very reason the Democrats will find themselves on the outside looking in this Novewmber. They have taken a majority no other party has ever seen in the history of our nation and squandered it. What do they do? Blame it on the Republicans, even thought the Democrats had a filibuster proof majority. You guys have defended those that can’t take responsibility for their actions to a new level.

  10. Oh, and in case you guys are wondering…would 9/11 have been planned under Bush or under Clinton? Clinton./ They had been planning that for years. But once again, that wouldn’t fit into your blame Bush mentality, would it?

    How was Bush supposed to stop 9/11, by the way? We had intel saying a terrorist attack was coming, but that was it. Not how, when or where. So was he supposed to close ever bus, airplane boat terminal in the country? If he had tried to put in measures at any of these places you left-wing-nuts would have screamed how your liberties are being infringed upon. Keep in mind that almost every terrorist attack up to that point had been mad via car bombs and on board a ship. (Achille Lauro, since you people obviously cannot remember past two minutes ago.)

    Let’s all get together and say it again! It’s Bush’s Fault, Bush Bush, Bush, Bush!
    Come November you will have only yourselves to blame for the most inept party in the history of our nation.
