SEAN HANNITY: I think this is a pivotal moment, and it took somebody of your stature and your credibility on this issue to bring this very important debate to the forefront. And, I know you're going to be under fire. I really do. But, it is so important because if we don't get this right, there are going to be so many more people that will die. And the president is about to make the biggest mistake with Iran and he won't even tell us what the deal includes.
RUDY GIULIANI: I've been saying this for two or three years, and it got picked up in the context that it got picked up in. And, I'm not saying it was out of context. It wasn't. But the reality is, I am at a stage -- as I told you personally, I think last night -- of real, real worry for my country. And, you hit the nail on the head. ISIL is -- ISIS, ISIL, Al Qaeda -- very dangerous, horrible people, killing Christians, killing Jews.
HANNITY: You don't want to live through 9/11 again. You were on the front lines. You don't want to see this happen. And, it very well --
GIULIANI: You know, President Obama didn't live through September 11 -- I did. President Obama didn't almost have a building fall on him -- myself and my police commissioner and my fire commissioner did. And, I lost ten of my very close friends. (emphasis added)
