Who knew? GOP blogger Stefan Sharkansky did. And he filed a report from the private fundraiser where Giuliani pulls the same shit as Bush, conflating the war in Iraq with the war against al Qaeda.
We had a succession of killings that went on, you could almost describe it as serial killings. Except we never identified the murderers as serial killers. Khobar Towers. Tanzania. Kenya. Bin Laden declared war on us, we didn’t pick it up. And then they killed our sailors on the U.S.S. Cole and we didn’t respond at all. That’s what I mean by being in denial. I’m not saying that to blame Bill Clinton. I really am not, because I think hindsight is very powerful. September 11 happened, everything I just said becomes much clearer. I do blame people after that though. I blame Harry Reid, for saying the war in Iraq is lost. I don’t know how you’re going to say a war is lost when you have 160,000 men and women in the field. And I’d like to know who wins if we lost. Al Qaeda wins and I can’t imagine why Harry Reid wants Al Qaeda to win.
