Giuliani: ‘Perfectly Accurate’ to Call NYC Explosion an ‘Act of Terror’

Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends Weekend,” former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said it would be “perfectly accurate” to describe Saturday’s explosion in New York City as an “act of terror.”

“When you don’t know who did it, how they did it, why they did it, I can’t — unless he has a lot more information than it appears he has, it seems to be premature to say it is or it is not connected to internationally terrorism,” Giuliani said. “To say it’s a terrorist act is perfectly accurate. I mean, this could be domestic terrorism, this could be some form of lunatic terrorism, but a bomb, almost by definition, when you explode a bomb in a crowded area, that’s an act of terrorism.”

“You don’t avoid things by trying to sound too euphemistic because nobody will trust you when you try to sound too euphemistic. To say it’s ‘Islamic terrorism’ is jumping too far. To say this was an ‘act of terror’ is perfectly accurate,” he later added.
