Rudy lies, again...

Former Mayor Rudy "9/11" Giuliani is caught making stuff up again. He recently claimed on 'Good Morning America'  that, “We had no domestic attacks under Bush; we’ve had one under Obama.” He later claimed that he had meant there were no domestic terrorist attacks “since Sept. 11th.” I'm not sure how Mr. 'noun, verb & 9/11' could have forgotten the terrorist attacks of 9/11, but he did!

That aside, he is still omitting the fatal anthrax attacks in the weeks following 9/11, the fatal shooting by an Egyptian at Los Angeles airport on Independence Day in 2002, and the attempt by Richard Reid to blow up his shoes on a flight bound for the U.S. I bring this up because conservatives are sure making political-hay out of the Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab allegedly trying to blow up his underwear last Christmas...

That brings us to the most recent of Rudy's lies. Mr. Giuliani claimed after the State of the Union Speech that The President “said the least about national security than any American president I can recall at a time in which we are at war with Islamic terrorists — and notice, once again, he never used that word”. When in reality, President Obama mentioned "terrorism" once, and "terrorists"twice.

Mr. Giuliani also claimed President Obama “didn’t talk about the Christmas almost-bomber.” In fact, Mr. Obama did, “We are filling unacceptable gaps revealed by the failed Christmas attack, with better airline security and swifter action on our intelligence.”

He also claimed, as he likes to do, that The President didn't mention “war”, when in fact Mr. Obama mentioned seven times. But hey, who's counting?
