Giuilani Adviser Says 'Too Many' Mosques in U.S.

A top national security adviser to former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani said in an interview that there are "too many" mosques in the United States and urged a more aggressive law enforcement approach toward them.

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), who serves as the senior Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee, said Thursday that his comments to the Politico website were taken out of context.

"I stand by everything I said other than the fact that the Politico totally took it out of context," King told the Associated Press.

The comments were condemned by Democrats and by a leading muslim group. A spokeswoman for Giuliani did not respond to requests for comment Thursday.
