Giuliani Faults Former President Clinton For 1990s Response To Terrorism

Virginia Beach, VA (AP) -- Republican Presidential Candidate Rudy Giuliani has accused former President Clinton of not responding forcefully enough to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing or later terrorist attacks.

Giuliani made the comments during a speech at Regent University in Virginia, the school founded by religious broadcaster Pat Robertson.

The former New York Mayor accused Democrats of weakness in dealing with terrorism.

Giuliani said that Clinton treated the World Trade Center bombing as a criminal act instead of a terrorist attack, calling that "a big mistake" that emboldened other attacks. He also said Osama bin Laden "declared war" on the US and "we didn't hear it."
