The 'No Attacks' Myth Lives On

Frank Luntz lying about the Bush legacy on terrorism: "Yes [9/11] allows us to appreciate George Bush And Dick Cheney For Keeping Us Safe."

How can anyone possibly say this?! The biggest terrorist attack on American soil which occurred during the Bush/Cheney presidency is a reminder that they kept us safe?! In fact, they kept us less safe than anyone since the British invasion during the War of 1812! 3,000 American civilians died on their watch, and in subsequent months and years, the nation was gripped in fear of more attacks, while thousands of Americans were being killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Kept us safe?
