Richard T.--in terms of sheer numbers, yes. But just as I do not blame President Reagan for the wave of anti-American terrorist attacks on his watch, I do not blame Giuliani for 9/11. My point is that Giuliani and the Republicans in general ignore history when they tell the public again and again that they have a better record fighting terrorism than Democrats. They do not and therefore should not foul the public. Strangely, the mainstream media are silent on this points as well.

Richard T.

And using your calculus, more New Yorkers were killed by terrorists under Giuliani's administration than under any other mayor, so he should be taking blame, not credit, for 9-11.
