Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani revealed his first words to President Bush shortly after the September 11th terror attacks; saying “Let Me Kill Him” once the United States captured Osama bin Laden.
“The anger was tremendous,” he said. “When I saw President Bush for the first time and he got off the helicopter… he greeted the governor and came up to me… He says to me ‘Rudy, what can I do?’ I said when you get bin Laden let me kill him — or I might have said execute him.”
“I think I was thinking as a lawyer,” Giuliani continued. “I thought there’d be capital punishment and I could try the case. I had done that for two Nazis. I only had two capital cases in my career and both of them were Nazis. One had killed 7,000 people. Another had killed 12,000 people — [a] capital case is easy when it’s like that.”

“It’s the saddest day and it’s the happiest day because there was so much bravery. America was at its best for weeks after. You go back and you say now, I wish we could recapture half of that,” he added.
