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.
