Giuliani Blames Bill Clinton for 9/11 [VIDEO]

"The idea of trying to cast blame on President Clinton is just wrong for many, many reasons, not the least of which is I don't think he deserves it..." -Rudy Giuliani

That was then, this is now.

As we've previously reported here at AlterNet, Rudy Giuliani has adopted a new explanation for why we were attacked on September 11th, and by the way isn't it fascinating how the Right in this country keep inventing explanations for why we were attacked from "it was God's wrath" to "they hate our freedom", instead of actually accepting what the man who authorized the attack, bin Laden, said the reason was, but I digress. Giuliani, who has more than a few 9/11 leadership issues of his own, very explicitly suggest to a Regent University audience that Bill Clinton's negligence toward terrorism was the main reason the World Trade Center was attacked.

Enter Wayne Barrett, a phenomenal investigative journalist for the Village Voice, who I had the privilege of interviewing myself once for a story I did back in journalism school. Although Rudy Giuliani is largely despised by the New York press now, Barrett started exposing Giuliani's bullshit before it was the hip thing to do. His books like Rudy and Grand Illusion: The Untold Story of Rudy Giuliani and 9/11 are required reading for anyone who wants the straight dope on this greedy, sadistic, petty little man. In the interview with Keith Olbermann to your right, Barrett explains how hypocritical it is for Giuliani to impugn Clinton's terrorism preparedness when he had done absolutely none as mayor.
