giuliani warns of 'new 9/11' if dems win
from politico: Rudy Giuliani said if a Democrat is elected president in 2008, America will be at risk for another terrorist attack on the scale of Sept. 11, 2001.
But if a Republican is elected, he said, especially if it is him, terrorist attacks can be anticipated and stopped.
“If any Republican is elected president —- and I think obviously I would be the best at this —- we will remain on offense and will anticipate what [the terrorists] will do and try to stop them before they do it,” Giuliani said.
democrats fire back at giuliani on 9/11 warning
from boston globe: Democratic White House contenders Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton criticized Republican Rudolph Giuliani on Wednesday for suggesting a Democratic president would put the United States at risk of another September 11-type terrorist attack...
"Rudy Giuliani today has taken the politics of fear to a new low and I believe Americans are ready to reject those kind of politics," Obama, an Illinois senator, said in a statement.
"The threat we face is real, and deserves better than to be the punch line of another political attack," he said.
Clinton, a New York senator, said the last six years of the Bush administration have showed "political rhetoric won't do anything to quell those threats. And that America is ready for a change."
"We have to protect our country from terrorism -- it shouldn't be a Democratic fight or a Republican fight," she said in a statement.
In 2004 Bush was re-elected after questioning Democratic Sen. John Kerry's ability to fight terrorists, and Vice President Dick Cheney said a Kerry vote could lead to another terrorist attack.
