    Default Giuliani claims no domestic terrorist attacks during the Bush Administration.

    Link

    Apparently he forgot about 9/11. The deadliest domestic terrorist attack in US history. Especially odd given the role he played that day. Worse yet, the moron Stephanopoulos doesn't correct him.

    How do you figure that an attack orchestrated by al Queda is domestic terrorism? It is international terrorism. I think you may have misunderstood his terminology. I am pretty sure he has not forgotten about 9/11.

    The attacks on 9/11 were acts of international terrorism. Making incorrect claims in order to make someone else look stupid only makes you look even stupider. Congratulations.

    Mea Culpa on the grammar. I meant to write the deadliest terrorist attack on domestic US soil.

    Even funnier. Since this proves that nmspark didn't watch the video.

    Giuliani states:

    We had no domestic attacks under Bush.
    If one believes he meant there were no attacks by domestic terrorists then Giuliani has forgotten about the anthrax attacks (amongst others) that occurred during the same time frame.

    Either way, it shows his (and many of his kind) of their desire to ignore reality.

    Perhaps he was talking about the time since the war on terror started. Regardless of the one little snippet, the rest of the interview makes total sense.

    And do you really think the Mayor of NYC forgot about 9-11-2001?

    This is right up there with impeach Obama.

    That isn't a grammatical error. That is a complete rewording of your entire statement that totally changes the entire meaning of it. And yes, that makes you stupider.

    You're right. I didn't watch the video and I still haven't watched it yet. I responded to your statement. Your statement was wrong and my response to your statement is correct.

    I think terrorism is terrorism. There are many different areas of terrorism. What about eco-terrosim? That is mostly domestic. Besides for offical "domestic" (meaning committed by Americans on American soil) then no "officially" there has not been, because we live in a country where it is innocent until proven guilty. I do not recall any American being prosecuted for the Anthrax attacks. Suspected/blamed yes but not prosecuted At least I will say that no attacks were successful. I would almost guarntee there were attempts that were stopped before being implemented. But I ask the question, is it terrosism if the act was stopped before the implementation. My opinion is yes it is. What about the V Tech shooting in 2007? Was that domestic terrorism?

    Regardless of what he meant, it isn't what he said. Even if one believes that is what he meant it is still an incorrect statement. Anthrax attacks and the shoe bomber both occurred after 9/11.

    I'm sure that makes sense somewhere in your little mind. Though I think anyone else would read your response as completely dodging everything I pointed out, and resorting once again to insults in order to cloud the issue.

    Not really. You're the one who admitted you commented on the video without watching it.

    You quote that you didn't watch the video.

    Regardless. Giuliani is incorrect in his assertion that no terrorist attacks took place on US soil during the Bush Administration.

    Yea, and that isn't what you said. You can't reword your incompetent statements in mid debate and then pretend you never said it. What you said was:

    I have not watched the video therefore I have not made comment on the video, nor have I claimed to have done either. I'm not sure what you're trying to prove but it isn't working.

    Bush had one. Clinton had many attacks. Under Bush there was the attacks of 9/11. Clinton had the first WTC, Oklohoma City, The Olympic Park, and the USS Cole.

    Clearly you need a refresher course on recent history.


    June 14, 2002 Karachi, Pakistan: bomb explodes outside American consulate in Karachi, Pakistan, killing 12. Linked to al-Qaeda.

    July 4, 2002 Los Angeles, CA Egyptian immigrant opens fire at El Al's LAX terminal killing two people.

    May 12, 2003 Riyadh, Saudi Arabia: suicide bombers kill 34, including 8 Americans, at housing compounds for Westerners. Al-Qaeda suspected.

    May 29–31, 2003 Riyadh, Saudi Arabia: terrorists attack the offices of a Saudi oil company in Khobar, Saudi Arabia, take foreign oil workers hostage in a nearby residential compound, leaving 22 people dead including one American.

    June 11–19, 2003 Riyadh, Saudi Arabia: terrorists kidnap and execute Paul Johnson Jr., an American, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. 2 other Americans and BBC cameraman killed by gun attacks.

    Dec. 6, 2003 Jeddah, Saudi Arabia: terrorists storm the U.S. consulate, killing 5 consulate employees. 4 terrorists were killed by Saudi security.

    Nov. 9, 2003 Amman, Jordan: suicide bombers hit 3 American hotels, Radisson, Grand Hyatt, and Days Inn, in Amman, Jordan, killing 57. Al-Qaeda claimed responsibility.

    Sept. 13, 2006 Damascus, Syria: an attack by four gunman on the American embassy is foiled.

    Jan. 12, 2007 Athens, Greece: the U.S. embassy is fired on by an anti-tank missile causing damage but no injuries.

    Dec. 11, 2007 Algeria: more than 60 people are killed, including 11 United Nations staff members, when Al Qaeda terrorists detonate two car bombs near Algeria's Constitutional Council and the United Nations offices.

    Sept. 16, 2008 Yemen: a car bomb and a rocket strike the U.S. embassy in Yemen as staff arrived to work, killing 16 people, including 4 civilians. At least 25 suspected al-Qaeda militants are arrested for the attack.

    Nov. 26, 2008 India: in a series of attacks on several of Mumbai's landmarks and commercial hubs that are popular with Americans and other foreign tourists, including at least two five-star hotels, a hospital, a train station, and a cinema. About 300 people are wounded and nearly 190 people die, including at least 5 Americans.


    I didn't include Richard Reid (shoe bomber), the anthrax attacks, or the Beltway Snipers (who were tried and convicted using terrorist charges).

    And of course there is the deadliest terrorist act on US soil executed on September 11, 2001. All during the Bush Administration.

    I admitted to not watching the video. I also haven't said anything about the video which I haven't watched. I'm talking about you and your BS lies. You putting words in my mouth, lying, and pretending only means something in your little mind. Nobody else would interpret it that way or lie to make it sound bad.

    Giuliani was referring to islamic attacks on american soil.

    He wasn't referring to the airliner/xmas attack, he was referring to Ft. Hood.

    .
