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

Before you qualify to criticize Democrats, Mr. Giuliani, you must
account for your preparation of your city for these clearly predicted
attacks. Tell us, please, what steps you took to make your city safer.

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

You have not qualified to criticize others, let alone be president of
the United States.

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

P.S. You might ask these same questions of George W. Bush while you
are trying to find a better reason to run for president.

  • Three months before the mid-term, Gary Hartpence wrote on Huffpo that the Bush administration’s “October surprise” would be the announcement of massive troop withdrawls from Iraq. Two weeks later, Hartpence then wrote the “October surprise” would be an invasion of Iran. Neither happened. Hartpence is the one who is not qualified to criticize others.
