What??? Excuse me???

You're just not going to believe this. Or, I don't know, maybe you will:

Rudy Giuliani has joined fellow Republicans Dana Perino and Mary Matalin in seeming to forget that the September 11th attacks happened under President Bush.

On "Good Morning America" Friday, the former New York mayor declared, "We had no domestic attacks under Bush; we've had one under Obama."

Not only does the statement suggest Giuliani does not remember the devastating attack in his own city, it also omits the
anthrax attacks and the attempted shoe bomber attack.

It's from an article published over at Huffington Post.

You can also watch the actual footage there.

George Stephanopoulos was conducting the interview and, unbelievably, did not correct Giuliani!

One person commenting said this:

Lying is second nature to these people, and they start believing everything they say.

And some of the people who were watching will have believed it. That is what the liars are counting on.
UPDATE: Here's another comment that I think is VERY important:

Notice how much more attention has been given to the underwear bomber than the shoe bomber from 8 years ago? Hardly proportional to the threat.

Now, is anyone in the mainstream media going to point this out?
UPDATE 2: I want to recomend that you go on over to OpEdNews and read the Statement of 911 Widows In Response to 12/25 Terror Attempt. Here's one really pertinent excerpt:

Currently, many of the members of Congress, as well as former Vice President Dick Cheney, are loudly criticizing the current administration for how they are handling this latest terrorist attempt. We would like to remind them that they were in office during the years post 9/11. We would like to tell them they should be ashamed and should be held accountable. It was during this time that existing loopholes that allowed 9/11 to happen were supposed to have been fixed.

It is utterly offensive and dangerous when politicians attempt to turn a national security issue into a partisan battle over who is the mightiest terror warrior. The safety of American citizens is not a schoolyard game.

I agree.

    It is the height of irresponsiblity, during such perilous times, to attack our president in an attempt to diminish his credibility. What a bunch of TOTAL losers.They just get more and more sickening as time goes by.
