Former Bush Administration Spokesperson was speaking about the recent shootings at Ft Hood (calling them a terrorist attack) when she said:
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.Watch the clip:
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.
Does Sean Hannity CORRECT Perino?
That would be a no.
UPDATE (NOV 27): From Talkingpointsmemo:
Dana Perino is backpedaling on comments (that we reported on earlier) that seemed to suggest that terrorists have struck America on President Obama's watch but didn't on President Bush's.And here's what she said on Twitter:
Last night on Hannity, I obviously meant no terror attack on U.S. post 9/11 during Bush 2nd term. We have the tools, just need to use them!Fair is fair. She did correct herself. They never did catch Bin Laden, though, did they? Or the Anthrax killer.
I'm just sayin'.
