Obama Critiques Giuliani

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Democrat Barack Obama rebuked Republican White House rival Rudy Giuliani today for suggesting the country could face another major terrorist attack if a Democrat is elected in 2008.

The Illinois senator says Giuliani shouldn't turn the threat that faces the United States into "the punchline of another political attack."

He says Americans are united in fighting terrorism and reject questioning the patriotism of people who question failed policies.

Yesterday in New Hampshire, Giuliani said if a Democrat is elected it means, "We're going to wave the white flag there." He says a Republican win would signal the country will remain on the offensive in the war against terrorists.

Giuliani was mayor of New York when the World Trade Center was attacked on nine-eleven.

    I believe that current offensive against terrorism has been just that -- offensive to the rest of the world. The Iraq offensive done deceitfully in the name of 9/11 and "anti-terrorism" -- REPUBLICAN policy -- has made us more vulnerable to further attack. Bin Laden still lives and we lost valuable respect that has protected us in the past.

    Just because Barack Obama gets elected President doesn't mean we're waving a white flag. It means we will no longer waste taxpayer money on unnecessary spying on people who have never committed crimes. Why waste time watching people who are innocent? By not wasting time and money on baseless threats, it will allow Obama time, energy, and resources to devote to monitoring true threats to this nation.
