White House Press Secretary under George W. Bush and current Fox News contributor Dana Perino needs a history lesson on 9/11. While trying to classify the Ft. Hood shooting as a terrorist attack, Perino makes the crazy assertion that “we did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush’s term.”

With the new “zero tolerance” policy for errors, Sean Hannity surely corrected Perino, right? Wrong.

PERINO: And we had a terrorist attack on our country. And we should call it what it is. Because we need to face up to it so that we can prevent it from happening again.

HANNITY: I agree with you. And why won’t they say what you just so simply said?

PERINO: They want to do all of their investigations. I don’t know. All of the thinking that goes into it. But we did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush’s term. I hope they’re not looking at this politically. I do think we ought it to the American people to call it what it is.

  1. Sept.11,2001,Dana? Who was President who ignored 50 warnings about 9/11,Dana?

    Well and if you consider a shooting like this a “terrorist” attack, then what about the DC snipers, the Virginia Tech shooting and the others? I’ve even heard fox news say that there were no terrorist attacks after 9/11 because of Bush’s security measures (they were also talking about our allies too)………..what about the train bombings in the UK and Spain. I mean, Fox News are full of liars and the people that watch and believe it are ignorant. Read a history book, do some homework, study…..come on morons

  3. Why does the left always resort to name-calling? Every site I visit that contains leftist ideologues is always peppered with derisive comments. Do you think that debasing a group of people using names makes you smarter, or more important, or more right? I don’t appreciate it on the right, either. Ad hominem attacks never win arguments.

    Back to Dana…he should probably stick to using a teleprompter to avoid misspeaking.

    Marbran, That’s quite a generalization. A frequent internal debate is in regards to hate mail. If I posted that, many people would say the same thing about Fox News fans.

  5. What is a generalization? The derisive comments? Visit DU any day or hour of the week and you’ll see what I mean. And I also said that it happens on the conservative sites, as well. Freepers can be just as jejune.

  6. Hertiage Foundation’s (a conservative think-tank) 2007 report discredits This falsehood even more. http://www.heritage.org/Research/HomelandDefense/bg2085.cfm

    Next time, could you add a little more perspective when you post a particular link? I’m certain you had some thoughts on the Heritage Foundation’s report, but simply linking it here doesn’t give us your perspective, other than your disagreement with Perino’s statement. Just a thought…
