“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.
