America’s mayor Rudy Giuliani has slammed the Obama administration for its handling of last month’s attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi that left four dead including the ambassador to Libya charging the president lives in a “fantasy world.”
“This was a ‘terrorist attack,’” the former New York mayor said at a fundraiser for GOP congressional candidate Dan Halloran according to The New York Observer
. “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.”
Giuliani, who ran for the president in 2008, said if President Barack Obama puts his “head in the sand about this, then all the people who work for the President of the United States tend to put their head in the sand.
“And that’s why, I believe, all these requests for additional security were not granted,” Giuliani said according to the Observer. “Because it would give the impression that maybe Libya was not this wonderful place that President Obama would like us to think it is . . . It defies his narrative.”
