You can officially count former Mayor Rudy Giuliuani among President Barack Obama’s critics over his controversial handling of last month’s attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. At a fundraiser for GOP congressional hopeful Dan Halloran earlier this week, Mr. Giuliani simply unloaded on the Obama administration’s “cover-up” of the incident’s terrorist roots, which he described as a “bunch of lies” based on Mr. Obama’s political calculations and “fantasy world” delusions.
“This was a ‘terrorist attack,'” Mr. Giuliani said. “The president has hard time saying those words. He has a hard time saying those words because he lives in a fantasy world. The fantasy world he lives in is that Islamic extremist terrorism, even if it exists, shouldn’t be acknowledged. We pretend they’re not at war with us; we’re certainly not at war with them.”
