Would Rudy Giuliani Bomb Iran?

"Would Rudy Giuliani Bomb Iran?"

Norm Podhoretz thinks the United States ought to launch a preventive military strike on Iran. He’s also one of Rudy Giuliani’s official national security advisers. He also, apparently, thinks Rudy agrees with him about the need to launch a preventing military strike on Iran but “hasn’t asked him directly, because he doesn’t want to damage Giuliani’s candidacy with the inevitable controversy that an affirmative answer might arouse.”

As Sam Boyd points out, you’d really think one of the journalists covering the Giuliani campaign would want to dig into this a bit. Does Giuliani agree with Podhoretz? If not, why not? Does he think Podhoretz gives bad advice? And if Podhoretz’s advice is bad, what’s he doing advising the campaign?
