After Jeb Bush said during Wednesday's debate that his brother George W. Bush "kept us safe" during his eight years in office, many journalists turned to Twitter and invoked 9/11 to claim otherwise.
Take a look:

Jeb Bush about George W. Bush: "He kept us safe." Under whose watch did 9/11 happen?— Olivia Nuzzi (@Olivia Nuzzi)1442455307.0
The problem with Jeb Bush saying his brother "kept us safe" is that more Americans died in Iraq & Afghanistan than in 9/11.— Nicholas Kristof (@Nicholas Kristof)1442455429.0
Bush kept us safe unless you were one of the 1000s who died on 9/11 or one of the 1000s who died in the unrelated war we fought afterwards— Judd Legum (@Judd Legum)1442455529.0
