ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION). Story: Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani on Monday (August 15) appeared to forget about the 9-11 attacks that killed thousands of people in the U.S. in 2001. While speaking at a rally for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in Ohio, Giuliani told the crowd that the U.S. experienced no attacks by Islamic extremists until President Obama took office in 2009. Giuliani was the mayor of New York when attackers flew airplanes into the twin towers of the World Trade Center there, killing more than 2,600 people. More than 200 others were killed when other hijackers flew planes into the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. and crashed in a field in Pennsylvania after being attacked by passengers. Thousands of other people were injured. Outraged survivors condemned his comments on social media.
