You Got It Dead Wrong, George.

Apparently ABC news needs to start offering remedial courses in recent history. First student should be Correspondent and all around leftie apologist George Stephanopoulos. [1]

President Obama yesterday took personal responsibility for failures in the Christmas day terror plot, but Rudy Giuliani still isn’t convinced.

I spoke to the former mayor of New York City this morning on GMA, who assailed the Obama administration’s decisions on national security.

“What he [Obama] 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’ve had one under Obama,” Giuliani said. “Number two, he should correct the things that Bush didn’t do right. Sending people to Yemen was wrong, not getting this whole intelligence thing corrected.”

Giuliani seems to have forgotten about the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and shoe bomber Richard Reid.

What a maroon!

No, actually he’s right, George… and as usual, you’re dead wrong.

He’s saying that following 9/11 there were no domestic attacks. It’s a point he also made on Fox this morning. After the government had evdience that we were in fact at war,  that no further domestic attacks occurred. In this, he’s correct.  Oh, of course, you mention “The Shoe Bomber.” But, no, this was not a domestic attack. That’s a point you’d know very well, if you bothered looking it up. Heres a clue, George, since you so badly need one: [3]

The 2001 shoe bomb plot was a failed bombing attempt that occurred on American Airlines [4] Flight 63 flying from Charles De Gaulle International Airport [5] in Paris, France [6], to Miami International Airport [7] in Miami, Florida [8], on December 22, 2001.

That can hardly be considered a ‘domestic’ attack, George. Not even close. Maybe now we better understand how it is you’re doing the Morning show instead of hard news, huh?

Now… as to why that’s important… If you really want to consider the 9/11 attacks to have been preventable, there’s only one way that could have been prevented all.  That would be if we had taken seriously the act of war that was the first attack on the world trade center. The Clinton administration (doubtless advised by yourself in the matter ) decided the best way to deal with the situation was a civilian courts.  The result of that, of course, was the 9/11 attacks.  Of course, that’s probably why you never mentioned that particular attack.

You see, the point here is that the attack on Christmas Day was a direct result of our government not taking our security seriously.  Certainly, after 9/11, the bush administration had all kinds of actionable information.  Then again, so did Obama.  I leave explaining away the differences, to you.
