Gary Hart dunks Mr. Rudy "Look at me I'm the Mayor of the city that was attacked on 9/11 and therefore I'm tough on Terrorism" Giuliani with the following query, published earlier today on The Huffington Post.
Dear Mayor Giuliani:
Since you have based your presidential campaign almost exclusively on your reaction to terrorist attacks on New York City, and since you have recently accused Democrats of being on the defense against terrorism and therefore guilty of inviting more casualties, I have one question for you: Where were you on terrorism between January 31, 2001, and September 11th?
The first date was when the U.S. Commission on National Security/21st Century issued its final report warning, as did its previous reports, of the danger of terrorist attacks on America. The George W. Bush administration did nothing about these warnings and we lost 3,000 American lives. What did you do during those critical eight months? Where were you? Were you on the defensive, or were you even paying attention?
Rudy wasn't prepared for the well-predicted attack, and his current suggestion that the fact that he cleaned up the mess makes him somehow qualified to fight terrorism now. What a joke...
