Former Mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani — commonly known as “America’s Mayor” since the 9/11 attacks — just admitted to giving a kill order. He stunned millions on national television.
Appearing on Fox News to discuss the 18th anniversary of 9/11, Giuliani revealed his exact words to then-President George W. Bush. “When you get Bin Laden, you can let me kill him,” he said.
Giuliani continued, “Or I might have said ‘execute him’ — I think I was thinking as a lawyer. I thought there would be capital punishment.” It is clear that emotions are still raw, even 18 years later, and for good reason.
He revealed that he shared these words with Bush after the president stepped off Air Force One and greeted him. The president asked, “Rudy, what can I do” with his hand on Giuliani’s shoulder.
That’s when Giuliani responded as anyone would who just lost nearly 3,000 citizens in the worst terrorist attack in American history. He wanted justice to be served.
With Bin Laden dead since 2011, the focus is shifting back to 9/11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and his cohorts. The trial begins on January 11, 2021, just over 20 years after the attacks.
