article imageRudy Giuliani: No domestic terrorist attacks under Bush

By Andrew Moran     Jan 9, 2010 in Politics
Mayor of New York City during the tragic September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Rudy Guiliani, recently said that during the Presidency of George W. Bush the United States did not experience any domestic terrorist attacks.
Former 2008 Republican Presidential candidate and former Mayor of New York City, Rudy Giuliani, said on Friday, while defending President George W. Bush’s record, that the former administration never had a domestic terrorist attack under its watch, according to CNN.
In an interview with ABC’s "Good Morning America," Giuliani told George Stephanopoulos, “We had no domestic attacks under Bush; we've had one under Obama.”
However, in the past, Giuliani was not the only one to make such a mistake. White House Press Secretary Dana Perino and former Dick Cheney aide Mary Matalin both iterated the same sentiments that Giuliani did.
“We did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush's term,” Perino told Fox News in November. While Matalin told CNN’s John King on “State of the Union,” that the Bush administration “inherited a recession from President Clinton and we inherited the most tragic attack on our own soil in our nation's history.”
Nevertheless, Stephanopoulos wrote in his blog after the interview, “Giuliani seems to have forgotten about the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and shoe bomber Richard Reid.”
After realizing his mistake, Giuliani said, speaking with CNN's Wolf Blitzer, that he misspoke, reports The Canadian Press, “I usually say we had no domestic attacks, no major domestic attack under President Bush since Sept. 11. I did omit the words 'since Sept. 11.' I apologize for that.”
