Rudy's disgrace -- firefighters speak out on 9/11

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Let the disgraceful truth about Giuliani's self-glorifying bullshit come out:

Firefighters who lost colleagues in the 9/11 attacks in New York have strongly criticised Republican presidential contender Rudy Giuliani.

They released a video claiming that failures by the then-mayor of New York led to the deaths of 121 men.

The video says Mr Giuliani failed to provide working radios for crews and halted the recovery effort too soon.

Mr Giuliani's campaign said the union behind the footage was known to support Democratic presidential candidates.

Oh, so it's all just a partisan attack. I see. (You're not so fond of firefighters when they speak the truth and expose you for what you are, eh, Rudy?)

And yet: "The 13-minute footage was made by the 280,000-strong International Association of Firefighters (IAFF)." Do you not think they have some credibility?

You can read the IAFF's post here: "The truth is, Rudy Giuliani failed to properly prepare the Fire Department of New York prior to September 11, 2001, and he has subsequently exploited 9/11 to make tens of millions of dollars and build a foundation for his presidential campaign."

The IAFF's video, "Rudy Giuliani: Urban Legend," is here. It's a must-see.

  • The inability of various public and private services to communicate is a serious problem in many places. As a Radio Amateur, I'm very familiar with it and have provided emergency communications during hurricanes when all the expensive, infrastructure dependent just doesn't work any more.

    It's not the lack of technology - it's here, I have it - but rather the inability to understand that what the salesman is selling isn't what you need.

  • This still bugs me. 9/11/2001, Pentagon. Where is the Boeing 757-sized hole? In fact, where is the Boeing 757? -
