"Last Man Out" Tour in Oakland November 1st - William Rodriguez, Peter Dale Scott Cindy Sheehan, Local Heroes...

William Rodriguez, who was working as custodian
in-charge of three 110-story stairwells in the North
Tower of the World Trade Center on the day it was
destroyed, and who personally saved fifteen others
from certain death, will share his harrowing
experience of the 9-11 tragedy at a special
presentation, Thursday, November 1st at 7 pm, at the
Grand Lake Theater, 3200 Grand Avenue in Oakland,
California. He will also explain his deep
disappointment with what he describes as serious
inadequacies in the final report by the 9-11

At the White House on five occasions and
recognized as a “National Hero” by the Senate of
Puerto Rico, William Rodriguez, in possession of a
master key to all of the stairwell doors at each floor
in the 110 story building that day, personally saved
the lives of 15 people and aided NYC firefighters in
saving hundreds of others.

Rodriguez has used his recognition as one of the true
heroes of that tragic day to help draft and pass
legislation on behalf of victim’s family members and
survivors, to help raise millions of dollars for the
victims of 9/11 and their families, to bring attention
to the health concerns of thousands of first
responders, now sick with "Ground Zero Syndrome," and
to lobby for the creation of the 9/11 Commission.

Though he advocated for the creation of the 9-11
Commission and testified before the commission members
-- his private testimony before the Commission was
excluded from its final report ­ Rodriguez is now
raising questions about what he describes as serious
gaps in the official story and is calling for a
deeper, more energetic and international based
investigation into every possible aspect, failure and
contributing circumstance leading to the tragedy.

For nearly twenty years, the Puerto Rican-born, New
Jersey resident worked in the North Tower. On an
almost daily basis, Rodriguez met with co-workers for
breakfast in the famous 106th floor Restaurant in
Tower #1 of the World Trade Center. Nearly two hundred
people, including most of William's friends, were in
the restaurant on the morning of September 11. None

Other guest speakers include Peter Dale Scott, author
of several books including ‘Deep Politics And The
Death of JFK’ and the recently published, ‘The Road to
9/11: Wealth, Empire, and the Future of America’, and
introductions will be made by Cindy Sheehan.

The event is a benefit for the Northern California
9/11 Truth Alliance. $10 tickets include a reception for
William and leaders of the truth, peace, justice,
impeachment movements following William's presentation.
Endorsers include Veterans for Peace- Chapter 69, the
Peace Resources Project, World Can't Wait.

Do yourself a favor and go if you're in the area...

His story is absolutely incredible, you won't want to miss the opportunity to hear it live. William Rodriguez is one of the greatest heroes of this generation.


You can bet

your sweet ass I will be there. I wouldn't miss that one for the world.

Mr. Rodruguez's story is "absolutely incredible."

And that's supposed to be a good thing?

Good to see all the tour dates...

It's great to see people like William Rodriguez and Richard Gage making their rounds. They are a true credit to our cause. I also just received word that Bob Bowman will be on the road again in '08 with his Patriot tour. These all help to create local media while building our grassroots organizations.

Also good to see Cindy Sheehan involved. She is a bridge between Peace and Truth!

Lucky me:

I'm less than ten miles away. What a treat!

How wonderful that antiwar hero Sheehan is participating. The last I'd heard, she seemed to be fencesitting over 9/11 truth. Has she now been fully won over to the cause?

Thanks Carol

I met Cindy at the ILWU Conference on Stopping the War today. Gave her a copy of Richard Gage's new DVD and explained what we're doing. Cindy said she supported a new independent 911 investigation and seemed very interested in ae911truth.

Are you coming???

You are one of the honored guests. Did you get the invitation? Are you coming?

Carol Brouillet

Highly recommended indeed.

I attended Rodriguez' "Last Man Out" speech in Amsterdam (Holland) last July and "enjoyed" every minute of it. The room was packed and even included a couple of tv crews. Parts of the evening were later broadcast on Dutch national tv; see http://video.google.nl/videoplay?docid=6397746163648527211.
For Rodriguez' recent European tour, see http://www.last-man-out.com.

Last Man Out

David Lim, Josephine Harris, and 12 firefighters from Ladder 6 left the north tower five
hours after Mr. Rodriguez did.


David Lim is mentioned five times in Mr. Rodriguez's account.

Mr. Rodriguez is not mentioned once in Mr. Lim's account.

Can anyone explain this?


It was a miracle that Lim survived. He was rescued from the rubble- so was William, but they were separated before then, and William dove under the fire truck, after he left the building. There are videos of them being reunited for television. Initially William thought David had perished.

Carol Brouillet

You didn't explain the discrepant accounts.

Is this the transcript of the video?


If so, there's no reunion. Just electronic proximity.

I think we should be MORE rigorous in questioning the people
who tell us what we want to hear than we are in questioning the
official story. That helps keep us honest.

Thanks, Carol, for your work great over the years. I don't think Mr.
Rodriguez would object to my saying that you're a bigger hero
than he is. Just doing his job led him into a dangerous situation.
You took on a dangerous situation when nobody asked you to,
and you took a lot of shit for it, and you kept on with it, rain or shine.

There were two reunions.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWQZFFffhNI is the first one I saw, but both reunions were orchestrated by the press for their anniversary specials.

I was cnfused about the seeming discrepancies and asked William about them. He responded-

What is your confusion?
That was not the first reunion with David Lim. The first one was organized by Telemundo at ground Zero the previous year.That one can be found on my website or Youtube.

Carol Brouillet

You've changed the subject from discrepant accounts to reunions

Clearly social validation is all the proof you require.

The press requires verified facts.

What about...

...the presence of the other named people at Oakland event, such as Peter Dale Scott and Cindy Sheehan, on the other listed events. Will they also be present/speaking there?

Thanks for this announcement!

Cindy and Peter

They will each have a chance to speak before William- Cindy will introduce William, Peter will introduce Cindy (each will have 10-15 minute opportunity to say something). As far as I know they have not been invited to the other events. They are local people.

Carol Brouillet

I've invited local liberals... Opportunist accusations?

I put out an invitations to a lot of liberal acquaintances who aren't yet in the 9/11 know. One response I got basically accused Rodriguez of being an opportunist, that Rodriguez only started saying there were booms in about 2004/2005, that before he just mentioned rumbles in the basement. Will Rodriguez address the criticism that he's stretching the truth? Or does anybody have any response to this? (I'm tempted to just ignore this guy's response -- his cognitive dissonance is clearly manifesting itself and justifying his reason to cling to his mainstream beliefs.)

Let them listen to the Ginny Carr recording...

Also this has a few other witnesses of underground "boom-boom-booms"

Hope this helps validate William's testimony in their eyes..

Best wishes
