Giuliani on Obama's response to the Benghazi attack: "He fell asleep at the switch. For months, not just that day"

With a mere four days remaining in the race for the White House, on Friday evening "Piers Morgan Tonight" checked in on Ohio, arguably the most critical battleground state in the entire country, for a live interview with Rudy Giuliani.

Never one to hide his disapproval of the incumbent, the one-time Republican presidential candidate and current Mitt Romney surrogate criticized Barack Obama for everything from his attention to the devastation following Superstorm Sandy, to his handling of the Benghazi consulate attack.

However, while the former New York City mayor past judgement on the commander-in-chief, Wesley Clark was listening and asked for a platform to respond.

Having just concluded his own interview with Piers Morgan, Clark came back on the air, with his thoughts on the handling of the tragedy in Libya:

"With respect to Benghazi, I think we're all going to have to wait until the full investigation's done and the information comes out," said the retired U.S. Army General. "From my own experience inside the National Security System, when I read the fragmentary reporting I get an entirely different picture than what Mayor Giuliani's portrayed here."

Always ready to engage in spirited debate, Giuliani chimed in once more:

"None of that, General, answers the question: did the President of the United States know about the two prior attacks on that consulate - one that drilled a hole in the wall of 12 feet wide? And, if he didn't know about it, why didn't he know about it? And if he did know about it, why wasn't our ambassador given more security?" he asked. "He [Obama] fell asleep at the switch. For months, not just that day."

And with that, the former mayor apparently had enough. Having already suggested he was running late for another interview, he wrapped up his answer, thanked the host, dropped his microphone, removed his ear piece, and said simply "Thank you very much."

Rather taken aback by Giuliani's abrupt exit, Morgan declared: "The mayor has left the building, as they say."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Giuliani and West engage in spirited debate before the former mayor calls it a night.

      Thank you Theresa. Bush and Rudy Glulani knew about 911 before the attack. Why did they not stop the attack? The Bin laden family were friends of the Bush family. Was Rudy not cheating on his wife to take this threat seriously?

      There is a rather large hurdle to jump it what happened here, this was not a totally surprise attack, they were forming with weapons outside the neighborhood and neighbors called it in to the Libyan police who then did alert the Consulate (Amazingly AlJazeera has actually interviewed the eyewitnesses and reviewed and put out their phone videos the day after the attack! Which begs the question, if they had it out there how did our press and Administration miss that?) This happened at 4 PM DC time so the first team was still on watch and the White House CIC/Situation Room had the almost live feed.

      The ONLY person in America that can order an armed incursion into a non Treaty Nation is the President of the United States. That was not done from 4 PM till 11 PM (Total length of the attack, per the actual reporting on the radios and secured communication with both the Consulate and Safe House.) With the drone assets overhead with night vision and infared there was no confusion as both Panetta and Clark are offering as an excuse! At some point 2 drones were overhead giving a wider better view! I would agree that blaming for information that was given months ago may be a poor choice but the case here is that for 7 hours they or their staffs watch this unfold in almost real time and did nothing! The CIA moved assets, the Military moved assets but NO ONE other than the President can give the order! Fact! And that order never came!

        First, Let's not say the the President and Administration sat and watched this as it unfolded because you are a God For Saaken Lie. Maybe the ball was dropped by the President and his Administratio. But, everyone is right the ball was also dropped in the Bush Administration when 911 happened as well. Bush and his administration new that a attack was being planned but choose to say they didn't take the threat serious. I wonder why. I believe that its because they were in cahoots with Bin Ladens family....huuummmm. Secondly, Giuliani must not talk to niether Mayor Bloombergh or Gov. Christi because they both said on TV yesterday that the Pessident has been in touch with them everyday. So what is he trying to do. It kills me why people don't have the balls to say why they really don't like the President. I know why just waiting to hear. Maybe your one of those peple.

        Thank you RoninAustin! I am glad someone has not had his brain eaten by the Obama surrogates. Major Guiliani said what millions of people have been wanting to say that Mr. Obama has evaded the Bengazi tragedy for weeks and that he lied to the people. What is so tragic is that the media has abandoned being news channels and rather than report or followup on this events they supress information that may hurt his campaign and it is so blantant that they have discredited themselves and have no real credibility. Piers Morgan, I thought he was independent? Really? I am a democrat who is now voting republican.

      Giuliani makes me sick! The worst terrorist attack in history took place on his turf during his term as Mayor with a Republican president who did nothing to prevent it and made damn sure he wasn't around when it happened. How two faced and how desperate are you to dig up dirt on the opposing candidate just to make yours look better? But then I guess that says it all, doesn't it?

        Guialini starts throwing stones in his glass house. How many police and firefighters died needlessly because there was no co-ordination of communications in the towers. He should know what a failure is, because he was the biggest during that event. Also if you want to know how Romney governs, ask everyone in Mass where he was governor, whether he was a good governor.
        Also Guiliani was very disrespectful to former Gen. Wesley Clark, very shameful, but then again that is the character of the Romney campaign.

        It never seems to amaze me that republicans constantly blame everyone else for their shortcomings or plans to commit something untoward. The FBI is a professional organization which can get to the bottom of what has happened in Bengazi if it is possible to do so. Pox Snooze is not! Neither is CNN or Gagliani or Burnett or a Blitzer or Morgan. I believe what General Clark had to say at that session. What Gagliani was saying is that he was responsible for every killing in New York that occurred while he was mayor. Bush and Cheney should both be in jail for treason for what they did to this country and Romney wants to take us back there.

      I heard last night's interview with Guiliani and he personifies how shamelessly, and inaccurately, he and his fellow Republicans are politicizing the current tragedy in my state (New Jersey) and New York. Too bad Piers didn't catch him in his distortions in real time. Most egregiously, Guiliani accused the President with ignoring New York City's problems and in particular, failing to visit the city as he did New Jersey. That's simply a lie. The fact is that Obama offered to come to NYC early on in the crisis and Bloomberg very politely declined because of the disruption that that would have caused the city in terms of traffic control, security, etc. As for the rest, Guiliani accused the Obama administration of "dropping the ball" on the Sandy recovery. Again, ridiculous! Just because Obama isn't personally camped out in the disaster area, the fact is that FEMA has been very present and active on the scene and a number of cabinet members, including Janet Napolitano, have visited the area and responded to needs. The Army Corps of Engineers has done yeoman work as have other branches of the federal government. Obama has called for an aggressive, no-red-tape approach to the Sandy recovery effort, and that's exactly what his administration is doing. The other bit of bull that Piers could have caught Guiliani in was when he gave Bloomberg a pass on his initial ridiculous idea of holding the marathon, before he wisely cancelled it yesterday. Sure, he didn't want to criticize Bloomberg! Only two days ago he was cheering him on. If he criticized Bloomberg, he'd be criticizing himself - something I've never known Guiliani to be capable of doing. I really hope that if Obama should win, that people like Guiliani can do what generations of Americans have done following elections: come together as a nation and stop demonizing our President, even when he is clearly doing a wonderful job in managing a human calamity.

        John, if you could manage to briefly step away and analyze the situation honestly, you can see that the president’s response to Benghazi has been misleading. On September 12th, he did circuitously mention acts of terror as it pertained to 911, but he did not suggest that the 4 American deaths were a result of terrorism; however, he did propose that he did state that it was an act of terror during the 3rd debate; the discrepancies ensued over the 3-weeks following the September 11th attack when he was asked directly, by at least two news anchors, if the Benghazi
        deaths were a result of an act of terror, and he did not state that it was, which begs the question – ‘if he really knew/felt that it was an act of terror as he had already stated that it was why he wouldn’t answer the question as such? Additionally, he and his administration immediately stated that it was an amateur video that caused the uprising – why would the president and his administration state, on more than 10 different occasions, that it was the video that caused the attack when president Obama stated that it was an act of terror during the debate? Do you see why people, whether Democrat or Republican, should be questioning it? We, at least, owe it to the family of the victims to know the truth.

        Well Baun, It seems that you just can't wait for the FBI to do their job. The President and many others( distinguished) have repeatedly that all this noise that you suggest is at the fringe of the situation. There is not only an investigation being done by professionals of which you, CNN, Pox Snooze, or others are not one. You do not basically know anything about the situation especially the search for the criminals that did this. Assa released information and names that may have crippled the investigation and the search. Why aren't't you complaining about him. Bomb-Bomb McCain and chicken hawk Graham are doing nothing more than trying to politicize Bebghazi.gagliani is nothing more than a fool. One last thing, Romney made nothing but stupid illiterate comments about Egypt before the attack on Benghazi was completed

    This is a huge deal with an Ambassador being killed. He is the President's direct representative and yet there is little to no urgency to find out what happened.

      Sharon, I totally agree. I was shocked that he did not point out the fact that Bloomberg rejected the Presidents offer to come to New York. The fact that Piers allowed Gulliani to go on a 10 -15 minutes tirade without a fact check is disappointing. 1) The President travels via Air Force One. He can run the country and keep in contact with anyone from that plane. 2). The fact that Wesley was then cut off by Piers speaks volumes about the partial coverage his show offers. 3) repeatedly on CNn you see an unbalanced number of clips from Romney's campaign as opposed to Obamas campaign coverage. Therefore highlighting Romney's talking points and giving no voice to Obama. 4) Piers has also ignored any news topics that does not present Romney in a positive light. Like his highly false ad about exporting of Jeep jobs to China. The response from those Auto company executives regarding Romney's false claim.... is totally ignored. There should be balance in the campaign coverage and obviously Piers does not believe in unbiased coverage.

      I totally agree with you Sharon. Piers just sat there and let Guilliano rant and rave. My ears were bleeding after five minutes. He was rude to Gen. Clark, as well. I have been a regular fan of Piers, so he disapointed me.

    Thank you Piers for interviewing Giuliani on Benghazi. Many Americans agree with his outrage! Why is Wesley Clark assisting the Obama administration in buying time until after the election to proceed with the investigation? I have totally lost respect for Clark. Wesley Clark, I did not know you were a SHEEP! At the end of the interview, it is a good thing for Clark that time ran out because Clark had no response to Giuliani's right-on come back regarding Obama's handling/cover-up of the Benghazi investigation.

      The truth will come out, unfortunately not until after the election and then it will be very bad... AlJazeera, is not a right wing shill nor are they for the left wing... They openly dislike the US but to them the truth that is out there is more damaging than any of their tainting the news! The eyewitness accounts and videos show and tell a totally different story than we were told until it started to unravel last Wednesday! Panetta and Clark here are not telling the whole truth. Once the drones were in place the picture on the ground became mightly clear and indeed the CIA and DoD began moving the absolute right assets into position to relieve the Consulate! Again for anyone that slept through the Church Hearings and amendments ONLY the President of the United States can give the order for armed incursion into a non Treaty Nation! And obviously that never happened. There was both video and audio from the Consulate and the Safe House the entire time in one form or another piped to the Pentagon, White House, Department of State and CIA! Soon it will all come out and we will be outraged and news organizations like CNN and MSNBC will lose millions of viewers!

      As a Brit I have followed US politics for over 50 years, and I shall stay up on Tuesday 6th to find out what the US has chosen to be the Leader of the World!!. But I was sick to see Giuliani lash out at Obama to say he should be in New York etc and looking at the devastation instead of campaigning, actually I think he should. I think the two candidates should NOT be campaigning at all they should have halted the whole process after Sandy has ripped into the USA; it is not as if they haven’t been able to spend the time they have with intensive campaigning already. The one thing I find so sad that so much money has been spent on this campaign when it could have been used to do good not to smooth two men’s egos etc. especially Romney’s.

It is absouletely scary that ANYONE would vote for a man who one week says one thing, and then the next week completely does a 180 turn and says something else. Americans were dumb enough to re-elect bush even knowing he was war hungry just like his father. And now you have Mitt who is so eager to put another war on a visa and go to Iran. Canadians are laughing. For you Americans to think that the mess Bush and his father left, that Obama would be able to do Miracles in a mere four years is just ridiculous and absurd. BTW...90 % of Canadians (look this up)..........say if they had a vote, OBAMA would be re-elected. It seems like Canadians are the ones who can see through MITT ROMNEYS B**S***!!!

    I wonder if Rudy Giuliani is aware that there are new communication devices called the telephone, the cell phone, email, and skype that would keep President Obama in contact with the governors of NY nd NJ and with related federal agencies to enable him in keeping in the loop in this situation.

    Giuliani was arrogant and rude when he discontinued the conversation with Wesley Clark who was clarifying Giuliani's exaggerations, lies, and wrongful fingerpointing. Clark was calm, professional, and used facts, while Giuliani was disrespectful, fired up, and acting like a child. However, I have observed that from Romney supporters throughout this whole campaign.

    I respect people's opinions but I feel disappointed when people I respect have no honor and try to make and get cheap popularity. When a portion of Americans is in pains, every American is hurt. I think also when we are in crisis as this one,every patriot shows that spirit by putting hands together on deck to see what we can do as a people; after which we can go back to our individual differences.We see a blind girl who could stay home because she lacks sight and it is dangerous, go out to offer help- that is humanity, concern and love for one another. When Giuliani comes out at this time, we expect to see his ,being a former mayor, to exemplify humanity. We see him distracting and displaying craftiness by criticizing the president for something that is under investigation. It is a shame that in moments like this we should display inhumanity.It were better to stay quiet than to hurt feelings. He says the president has not done anything, Mitt says private agencies should be given responsibility to take care of disasters. They need to consult each other before coming to the public.

How can the media not seem biased towards liberals when the facts clearly support a lack of human evolution on the part of conservatives?

We line in the year 2012....NOT 1776. Our country was built as a republic in order to support the many different culural differences from one state to the next, but with communications and ease of travel, those differences no longer exist to the same extent as they once did.

    When you vote November 6, think in your family, in your children. In reality, we are not secure with a mindset like Obama's and his team when it comes to defense. He deceives himself and neglects the security of all Americans simply because he does not want to accept that the Muslims do have a radical group within them that want to disappear anyone who does not embrace their faith or leaves their faith. Those radicals mistreat their own people, they want to wipe Israel out from planet earth and they hate Americans. Obama is been soft with them and had it not been for the water boarding interrogation and the navy seals, Bin Laden would have not been brought to justice. Thank goodness we have technology to use for our defense, however, cutting the defense budget would not help. When you vote, don't think about Obama, think about your children and vote Romney/Ryan, please.

    Thank you for giving equal time to the Democrats since Rudy was politicizing a rise in Terrorism that happens before and after a Presidential Election and the unexpected path of a hurricane. Please remind Rudy the parents of the Ambassador and soldiers asked the Candidates to not politicize this event. Rudy, acting for Mitt Romney, should not politicize it either. Rudy was too obvious when he "used false guilt" to try to pull the President off the Campaign Trail. When Rudy and Mitt never wavered from the campaign trail to help any victims of the hurricane.

If an apartment building in your town catches fire, and the Mayor and Fire Chief are sitting in the Mayor's Oval Office at the time and are immediately told about the fire and even get a live video feed of the building in flames, but don't sent any Rapid Response Fire Team to put out the fire and save the occupants, and four people DIE as a result, after which the Mayor (who happens to be running for re-election) refuses to answer questions until after the election, would YOU vote for the Mayor? Really! I turned 18 a few months before the November 1972 election. Although I considered myself a Republican, I voted for George McGovern, because it was obvious to me that Pres. Nixon was covering up Watergate. I have voted mostly for Republicans since then, but to this day I am proud that I was able to cross party lines to vote my conscience when I knew that my President was covering up a scandal so that he could get re-elected. If you are a Democrat or Independent, especially in Ohio or another battleground state, please consider voting your conscience like I did. Let's hear from you, please.

        DrV57, you are mixing apples and oranges. Remember, the CIA had a handful of agents in Benghazi, and the CIA says they immediately went to help. (Let's put aside the question whether they were told initially to "stand down" as has been reported). That's not what I was talking about, and not what we need to be talking about. What was needed was a rapid military response, which never came until after the 7 hour battle was over. The CIA contingent was obviously not enough. If the Administration had heeded the desperate calls for more security in the weeks before the attack, the dead Americans would not have had to rely on a handful of CIA agents for their lives. I've read the CIA's timeline. I'll tell you President Obama's timeline ... cover up until after November 6.

    Mr. Rudy "America's mayor" Giuliani sounds pathetic and disappointed, and even desperate. First of... On Benghazi: did Mr. Giuliani do enough himself to prevent 9/11 on NYC? Did Democrats use it againts President Bush? Why politicizing a terrorist act? 2 – On Superstorm Sandy: NYC's mayor, Mr. Bloomberg himself suggested the President not to come to the city. Mr. Bloomberg on Tuesday said he spoke to President Obama and his chief of staff, Jack Lew, and told them the city would "love to have him, but we've got lots of things to do. And his trip to New Jersey would represent the whole region." 3 – As to the election: "the carrots are cooked in Ohio"; Ohio is grateful to President Obama while the other guy is desperately lying about the Auto Insdustry and on other issues. (What do they think of Republicans and Independents... That we are naive, senseless?) And the President has a major endorsement under his belt this week (maybe two), Mr. Michael Bloomberg's, which will be a great help for many undecided/independent voters to decide. And more likely Governor Chris Christie's (endorsement).

    As Bill Clinton might say, Rudy has brass ones to be calling out Obama. How about we discuss the placement of the disaster command post at the WTC instead of Brooklyn as was recommended to Giuliani? How about the contract with Motorola for the radios that didn't work? How about storing fuel in the towers despite opposition for safety concerns? C'mon Rudy, start talking!

      i agree with everything you pointed out about Gagliani. why does CNN continue to interview washouts like Gagliani and AFleicher etc. because they don't know anything. keep in mind, the republican response to the Arab Spring would have been balellions on the ground in Libya,Yemen, Egypt, Tunisia, Sudan and probably an army in Syria while waiting to invade Iran after prepositioning 5 or 6 divisions in Iraq.

        Gluliani does not support women, does not feel women should enter the job market or earn equal pay. No difrent to Mitt Romney. Where is the Bush Gang that destroyed our country now? The media stinks and yes this includes CNN.
        Is any one at CNN keeping a log of all these blogs. More than 99 percent feel the same.

    What about these embassy bombings? Where was this hack's sharp criticism for the administration during those times?

    2008 United States consulate in Istanbul attack
    2008 American Embassy attack in Yemen
    2008 Serbia protests
    2007 Embassy of the United States in Athens
    2004 Jeddah consulate attack
    2006 Damascus terrorist attacks

    This guy is a cancerous, angry hack with no ability to lead for the positive good. Sickening.

    When is CNN going to start covering Benghazi-Gate honestly! It's disgusting how they've become another corrupt branch of the Lame-stream Media. Also, Wesley Clark & Jack Keene have ruined their reputations and credibility by trying to cover for the Obama administration on this! Their public and political lives will be toast when this all shakes out! COMPLETELY DISGUSTING!!!

      GENERAL CLARK PUT IT CORRECTLY. THE SO-CALLED FACTS THAT REPUBLICANS LIKE GAGLIANI are using are made up in the back room of Pox SNOOZE or at the Heritage a unthink republican tank. regardless, they are at the fringe of the issue and are definitely not corroborated.

    In America, the mainstream media have been obfuscating the coverup of Benghazi. The President himself has stonewalled the few media attempts to obtain facts about the scenario. During the second presidential debate, the "independent" moderator, Candy Crowley, colluded with President Obama to lie to some 65 million Americans about his failure to identify the attack on the US Diplomatic Mission at Benghazi as a TERRORIST ATTACK. The failures and cover up just go on and on, the BS gets deeper and deeper. Today, we learn that 23 of the 30 Americans in Benghazi were CIA operatives. What does that tell you about why the US military didn't respond to attempt a defense of the Americans present? Was General Carter Ham of Africom ordered not to mount a defense? Was Rear Adm. Charles M. Gaouette, the commander of the USS John C. Stennis strike group, removed from command for the same reason? There are MANY MANY questions but very few answers.

      well you certainly name yourself appropriately. you know, we never did find out why Bush put 35,000 troops into Afganistan after the Northern ALLIANCE MOPED UP THE TALIBAN. REPUBLICANS DIDN'T EVEN SEND IN THE FBI TO FIND OUT WHY AMERICANS WEREKILLED THERE.

      Your handle is very fitting, Looney. Where were you and your clan when similar questions had to be asked about the Iraq war, about 9/11 and countless other attacks on our Embassies abroad under the Bush administration's watch? Yeah, I thought so. This has nothing to do with Benghazi, but the blind, irrational hatred the ultra right seems to harbour for President Obama. Give investigations time to be completed before you guys let your mouths run away without your brains.

    Why would Rudy Giuliani want any media exposure? These guys are shameless when they talk about honest Christian moral values over liberal values. While Giuliani and the Bush's are hard for others people's family in the same position the looked away on there own family.

    Google all the names.

    Barbara Bush
    Jenny Bush
    Mary Chaney
    Carolina Giuliani
    John Ellis Bush
    Noelle Bush
    Columba Bush
    Lucia Bush.

    CNN is now the real Fox News or are at least doing as good a job as Fox News. Is it because Piers is sulking because President Obama snubbed his show...that he's trying so hard to get him unseated as President. Romney/Ryan have already lost this election because peoples minds are now made up about their invisible 5 point plan that will do nothing.

    He said this two days ago, “I actually have a plan to execute change and make it happen.” eh? How are you going to do that? Will someone please ask him? Oh but wait,...he won't have to answer that now, because he's already "Lost" this election!

    PS. Walter Mitty, please leave the "Stage"!

    Giuliani purports to be able to know what "should have been done" on a global stage and can't even maintain the most basic structure of a healthy family life.

    Here is a statement from the one presidential candidate who actively supports the legalization of medical marijuana nationwide! "We've shown that the marijuana gateway effect is not the best explanation for the link between marijuana use and the use of harder drugs. An alternative, simpler and more compelling explanation accounts for the pattern of drug use you see in this country, without resort to any gateway effects. The people who are predisposed to use drugs and have the opportunity to use drugs are more likely than others to use both marijuana and harder drugs. Marijuana typically comes first because it is more available." You can read more and support her campaign on her site Join us and together, we can create a true land of the free.

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. Nevertheless think about if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this blog could undeniably be one of the best in its niche. Very good blog!
