Giuliani Defends Clinton on 9/11 Efforts

Let's face it, former President Clinton's behavior was ridiculous this past Sunday.
Political bickering over which president _ Clinton or George W. Bush _ missed more opportunities to prevent the attacks has been escalating since Clinton gave a combative interview on "Fox News Sunday" in which he defended his efforts to kill Osama bin Laden.
"The idea of trying to cast blame on President Clinton is just wrong for many, many reasons, not the least of which is I don't think he deserves it," Giuliani said in Response to a question after an appearance with fellow Republican Charlie Crist, who is running for governor. "I don't think President Bush deserves it. The people who deserve blame for Sept. 11, I think we should remind ourselves, are the terrorists _ the Islamic fanatics _ who came here and killed us and want to come here again and do it."
I can't even begin to express my lack of a respect for Clinton, but I'm sort of inclined to agree with Rudy on this one. We should be blaming the Islamofascists for their actions, instead of point fingers at who did, or did not, do enough to stop Bin Laden.
Giuliani also said a recently declassified report that said the Iraq war had become a "cause celebre" for Islamic extremists demonstrated the need to continue the fight there.
I don't suppose the fact that the terrorists will use this report against us in any way they can will shut up anyone, will it?
"The jihadists very much want a victory in Iraq. They feel that if they could defeat us in Iraq they will have a great victory for terrorism," Giuliani said. "What that should do is organize us to say if they want a big victory in Iraq then we have to deprive them of that victory."
We can NOT allow them a victory of any sort! It's time to start kicking some serious jihadist ass!
