Gary Hart's Open Letter To Rudy Giuliani

Ouch: Dear Mayor Giuliani: Since you have based your presidential campaign almost exclusively on your reaction to terrorist attacks on New York City

Ouch:

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?
Until you do, then I strongly suggest you should keep your mouth shut about Democrats and terrorism.

Gary Hart
(co-chair, U.S. Commission on National Security/21st Century)

Rudy Guiliani is many things -- cross- dresser, flip- flopper, heartless prick and authoritarian narcissist come to mind -- but "strong on terror" is certainly not one of them. Anyone who puts the NYC command center in the complex most likely to be targeted has no credibility on terrorism whatsoever. Period.
