Edwards Questions Clinton's Safety Assessment

Fmr Sen John Edwards (D-NC) took on Sen Hillary Clinton (D-NY) on her home turf -- very near Ground Zero.

The Democratic Presidential hopeful attacked her statement during this week's debate that America was safer from terrorist attack today than on 9/11.

"Today, as a result of what George Bush has done, we have more terrorists and fewer allies.... There was no group called al-Qaida in Iraq before this president's war in Iraq." -- Fmr Sen John Edwards (D-NC), quoted by the AP

Sen Edwards never mentioned Sen Clinton by name, but his news conference zeroed in on her statement. (The Lima News)
