Rudy Giuliani's Campaign Lies Again; 9/11 Commission Report Leaked

Rudy Giuliani's 9/11 Commission testimony in 2004 was not supposed to be released until after next year's elections, but apparently it has leaked out, and The Village Voice got a hold of it. Giuliani and his campaign staff have been possibly the biggest liars of all the presidential candidates, and that is not a small feat by any means. The puzzling part of this is that he has been caught time and time again, yet he is still labeled as the front runner, oddly enough. Elections are a fraud, and this is evidence enough. Anyone that supports this guy needs to have their head examined.

In a recent broadside deriding the Clinton administration's response to Al Qaeda, Rudy Giuliani told an audience at Pat Robertson's Regent University: "Bin Laden declared war on us. We didn't hear it. I thought it was pretty clear at the time, but a lot of people didn't see it, couldn't see it." Other tenets of his standard stump speech include the assertion that he's been "studying terrorism" for more than 30 years, and that "the thing that distinguishes me on terrorism is that I have more experience in dealing with it" than the other presidential candidates.

However, in private testimony before the 9/11 Commission in 2004, Rudy gave a very different version of how much he knew about terrorism when the World Trade Center was attacked. That testimony isn't scheduled to be released publicly until after the 2008 presidential election, but the Voice has obtained a copy of it. And it reveals a New York mayor who was anything but an "expert on terrorism."
