Giuliani Blames the Troops

Rudy Giuliani's penchant for speaking his mind generated some trouble for the Bush-Cheney campaign yesterday when the former New York City mayor suggested that U.S. troops, not the president, were responsible for the missing explosives in Iraq.

"No matter how you try to blame it on the president, the actual responsibility for it really would be for the troops that were there," Giuliani said on NBC's "Today" show. "Did they search carefully enough? Didn't they search carefully enough?"

"Today, George Bush sent his chief surrogate, Rudy Giuliani, out to defend the president's incompetence," Edwards said in a statement issued by his campaign. "Our men and women in uniform did their jobs. It's our commander in chief, George Bush, who didn't do his. "
