During his powerful speech at the Iranian-American Community symposium “Countering Islamic Fundamentalism, and a Nuclear-Armed Iran” on February 13, 2015, in Phoenix, Arizona, former NY Mayor Rudy Giuliani excoriated the president for his weak and feckless foreign policies.
I don’t know if I’ve ever seen Giuliani this animated:
“My 343 firefighters who died on September 11th, my 2700 citizens who died on September 11th, and soldiers of Forth-Hood who died by a man yelling “Allah Akbar” or the Jewish people just setting there, being shot and killed just a few weeks ago in France because they are Jewish. You know what they have in common?”
“They have in common a movement the president of United States will not recognize.”
“They have been murdered, they have been slaughtered, they have been raped, they have been tortured , they have been beheaded, they have been burned by a movement the president of United State will not recognize!”
“WHAT IS WRONG WITH HIM?!”
Giuliani noted the current leader of Iran’s long record of duplicity in regards to nuclear power.
“And we’re NEGOTIATING WITH HIM! he bellowed. “This is like playing poker with a guy who has cheated you twice before. You know who does that? A MORON!“
“An agreement with Iran with regard to nuclear power is very simple,” he continued, “Iran should not be allowed to get any nuclear power.”
He said that Obama should not be able to come to an agreement with Iran without the consent of Congress.
