From the September 19 edition of Fox News' Hannity:
SEAN HANNITY (HOST): This guy recently went to Afghanistan. One of his friends was interviewed earlier with Shep[ard] Smith on Fox today and I paid very close attention. He's saying that he changed when he went there. You know, if somebody is going to visit Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Saudi Arabia, why is that a red flag in my mind? Is that fair?
RUDY GIULIANI: Sean, that's very fair and I disagree with the FBI analysis of this and I disagreed with it also with regard to the Boston marathon bomber, Tsarnaev. I thought it was a major red flag when he not only went to Russia, but he went to Chechnya, and here's what I object to and what I'd like to know the answer to. Did they give that information to the local police? Because if they didn't, then FBI needs to be straightened out also and somebody has to have the courage to say that. When the FBI has information like this, the reason they're not following up on it is because there's only 14,000 FBI agents. There are 36,000 New York City police officers. There are over 800,000 sworn law enforcement officers in the United States. The FBI has to begin to give this information to the local police because maybe they'll have the extra cop or two that can watch a guy like this.
Now, I put the responsibility for ISIS completely on Obama and Hillary Clinton. This would not have happened had they not withdrawn the troops from Iraq. They were handed a somewhat-stable Iraq that miraculously -- the surge under Petraeus worked, we had stabilized Iraq, we had used the Sunnis to fight for us to win the eastern part of Iraq. And then when Obama imposed his deadline -- I have no idea what kind of irrational mind would think you should have a timetable for a war. But when we pulled out, a lot of the Sunnis went into the hills and the other Sunnis joined ISIS.
