Fox News contributor Monica Crowley was a guest on The O’Reilly Factor, during which she stated, “[a]fter 9-11, President Bush and Vice President Cheney had a 100 percent perfect track record in keeping the homeland safe from an Islamic terrorist attack.”

The problem with that statement can be explained by the following incidents that took place after the events on 9/11.

2002 attack against El Al ticket counter at LAX. In July 2002, Hesham Mohamed Hadayet opened fire at an El Al Airlines ticket counter at Los Angeles International Airport, killing two people and wounding four others before being shot dead. A 2004 Justice Department report stated that Hadayet’s case had been “officially designated as an act of international terrorism.”

2006 UNC SUV attack. In March 2006, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill graduate Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar drove an SUV into an area of campus, striking nine pedestrians. According to reports, Taheri-azar said he acted because he wanted to “avenge the deaths or murders of Muslims around the world.” Taheri-azar also reportedly stated in a letter: “I was aiming to follow in the footsteps of one of my role models, Mohammad Atta, one of the 9/11/01 hijackers, who obtained a doctorate degree.”

2001 shoe bomber attempted attack. In June 2008, then-Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff described Reid’s December 2001 attempt “to blow up a trans-Atlantic plane with a shoe bomb” as an attempt to “carry out terrorist operations for Al-Qaeda.”

Of course, Crowley failed to mention the number of terrorist-related deaths in the U.S. that occurred in each President’s first year in office – Bush: 3000+/- on 9/11, Obama: 14 (1 in Little Rock, 13 at Fort Hood).

  1. Obama=zero attacks
    Bush 43=1 attack,3000 deaths

    • Do you really think that Bush could control or want to have 9/11 happen while he was in office? Are you that stupid? Do you think that because there has not been a terrorist attack while Obama is in office that this somnehow makes him a better president? Remeber he said he would have us out of Iraq in 6 mo……a long time ago. How many more lives are lost because Obama cant stick to what he says?

  2. Don’t forget about the 2006 attacks on the Jewish Center in Seattle

  3. Fox News is an absolute joke.

    The atrocities that Bush has committed cannot simply be ignored by this fool.

  4. Crowley must know that the Taliban went to Texas as allies of Bush. Unocal was arming them. Oh, but only the BBC reported it, not our obedient and corrupt press.
