Rudy “9/11” Giuliani’s new advert puts forth a horribly false meme: that the Iranian hostages were released within an hour of Reagan’s inauguration (true) because Reagan was “tough on terror” (false).
Unfortunately for Rudy’s version of history, what actually happened was the release agreement was signed the day before the inaugural… and was negotiated by the Carter White House (led by Warren Christopher).
But why let facts get in the way of a good rant? “Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!”
