Giuliani Protesters Discuss 9/11
But the number of those who put red scarves over their mouths as symbolic gags during his speech, or passed out leaflets questioning the official story on the events of 9/11 in which Giuliani played an important role, were a small minority of the several thousand people present.
Meanwhile, some in the audience were flipping through leaflets handed out by Stan Chaucer of New Haven, a recent high school graduate. The leaflets had come from a Mendon activist Lynn Sandage.
She said on Saturday, she had spent most of the day on Main Street in Middlebury where she met Chaucer giving out information promoting a theory that Giuliani had been part of a conspiracy to create the 9/11 attacks as a way for George Bush and right-wing allies to seize more political power.
For those who want to pursue that theory, she and Chaucer both recommended Michael Ruppert's book "Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil." Sandage summed up this alternate view by alleging, "Giuliani's a mass murderer."
