Giuliani: ‘Surprising’ the US hasn’t seen more terrorist attacks

At least three people were killed and scores were injured Monday during the 117th running of the Boston Marathon when two explosive devices detonated near the finish line. The White House is calling the bombing “an act of terror,” although the identity and motives of the terrorist or terrorists is unknown.

“We expected many attacks like this,” Giuliani continued. “The really remarkable story is that so many of them have been prevented. So the reality is that what we’ve been doing hasn’t worked 100 percent, but it’s worked pretty well, and now we’ve got to learn from this, so we can prevent something like this in the future also.”

The bombing was the first terror attack on U.S. soil since a shooting spree at Fort Hood, Texas, in 2009 that left 13 people dead and dozens wounded.

“You do the best you can but you can’t stop life as we know it, otherwise these people win and we allow them to immobilize us,” Giuliani said.
