MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell ripped former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani for choosing to put the city’s Emergency Command and Control Center in the World Trade Center despite being advised by professionals in his administration not to place it in an “obvious terrorism target.”
“Rudy Giuliani learned absolutely nothing from the first deadly attack on the World Trade Center,” he said. “As the tenth anniversary of 9/11 approaches, most of the media will continue to portray him as one of the heroes of 9/11. Know this. There is no more fraudulent public image in our politics than Rudy Giuliani, hero Of 9/11.”

Networks are betting that Americans are ready to tackle the enormity of Sept. 11 with a range of dramas and documentaries.
August 14, 2011|By Steven Zeitchik, Los Angeles Times
Every once in a while, a fire truck will pass by Rudolph Giuliani's window, and the former New York mayor will flash back to that dreadful day when he had to drop everything and rush to ground zero. "It's just hard to hear it and not react," he said in an interview. "I don't know if that will ever change — some things will always trigger the memories."
Those memories were formed on Sept. 11, 2001, when the New York mayor was the sure hand steadying a rattled city. This time, though, he's the one doing the triggering: Giuliani is one of several leaders featured in "9/11: Day That Changed the World," a new Smithsonian Channel retrospective that chronicles the day from the point of view of those in power, using both archival footage and recent interviews. (Former Vice President Dick Cheney, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and New York fire chief Thomas von Essen are also interviewed.)

I’m still in shock over former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s comment that “we had no domestic attacks under Bush.” Is it possible that he meant to add “after 9/11″ and slipped up? I don’t know — forgetting to mention 9/11 is not a problem he’s had in the past.
I think Jake Tapper, on Twitter, is on to something when he suggests that Giuliani is one of many conservative who start the clock on the Bush presidency on 9/11. A smart conservative demand from President Obama right now might be that he “start the clock” on his anti-terror policy with the failed Christmas bombing. But that’s not what Giuliani’s doing here — he implies (as many Bush apologists do) that an attack that occurred nine months into the Bush presidency was Bill Clinton’s fault, while an attack that occurred 12 months into the Obama presidency was all Obama’s fault. He’s taking the right amount of flak.
RUDY GIULIANI: The Obama administration is repeating the mistake of history. Many, many people have regarded that as a mistake that it was regarded just as a civilian act. It should have been treated as an act of war.
And it's part of the bigger picture here. It's part of Barack Obama deciding that we're not at war on terrorism any longer. Remember, he's told us we can't use the term "war on terror". The only problem with that is the terrorists haven't stopped going to war with us.
New York '9/11 hero police chief' jailed
He has become the first police chief in the city's history to be thrown into jail. In a hearing in White Plains, New York, Judge Stephen Robinson said he was revoking the $500,000 bail granted to Kerik, 54, who led the police under the previous administration of then-mayor Rudolph Giuliani.
"The government made a motion to revoke his bail. After a three-and-a-half hour hearing, the judge agreed to revoke the bail in order for him be sent to jail," Mr Hadad said. The former police chief faces 142 years in jail and fines of almost five million dollars if convicted on all the charges.
Kerik is accused of secretly accepting more than $250,000 in renovations to his apartment from a construction firm with suspected mafia ties while he was Corrections Department commissioner under Giuliani. Kerik, who pleaded guilty in a state court last year to accepting the work, is also accused of not declaring a total of $236,000 in rent he received on an luxury apartment in New York's posh Upper East Side.
What might he know, if this is for real?
Why and why now? Good questions.
I spent four years in federal prison. During that time I received dozens of requests for information and interviews on the subjects of Rudy Giuliani and the Giuliani Administration. Most were from news outlets: magazines, newspapers and television. Some came from people wanting to write about Rudy and wanting new information or to confirm existing facts. A few were from average Joes and Janes wanting some question answered. How they got my name or why they were writing me, I have no idea.
With one exception, and that was just days before I left prison, I never responded to a single request. Sure there were probably hundreds of times that I read an article, heard a newscast or saw a commentator pontificate on some point relating to Rudy Giuliani with which I wanted to respond, elaborate or correct. But I never did.
The following query was mailed by an associate to email@example.com
"I write to request all available information concerning the segment of archival CBS News footage that is currently available on YouTube here:
Specifically, I seek answers to these questions:
1) What is the date and time of the original airing?
2) Is there any subsequent update, follow-up or correction in the archives regarding the contents of this bulletin?
3) Mr. Rather's language indicates he has seen and intends to air a "video" of Rudolph Giuliani "holding up" a "flight recorder box" recovered from Gound Zero. Does CBS News possess video of Rudolph Giuliani matching Rather's description? If not, did CBS News possess such video when Rather announced this bulletin? If CBS News no longer possesses such video, what became of it and who currently has custody of it?
4) If CBS still has custody of the video of Rudolph Giuliani described in #3, what steps might be taken to acquire a copy of this footage?
Thank you for your cooperation and kind attention.
The following response was received:
Another on-air oddity from Dan Rather:
- Rather's language suggests he has knowledge of a video clip in custody of CBS News in which Giuliani "holds up" what he claims is a "flight recorder box" from the WTC wreckage.
- Rather introduces this clip, but immediately a BBC-style "technical problem" prevents its being aired.
- Giuliani would not make such an announcement to the national media casually--much less "hold up" the object in question--without confirmation that what had been found was indeed a "flight recorder box" and not the remains of some other electronic appliance from the debris.
This episode supports claims by FDNY personnel and an NTSB "insider" that the WTC "black boxes" were in fact found, and suggests the actual moment the blackout curtain descends on this matter in the corporate media.

Neo-Con, "Axis of Evil"er, Giuliani wingman David Frum tells "Insane People" from WeAreChangeLA to "Take Stronger Medication"
David Frum came to the Los Angeles Public Library on January 16, 2008 to engage in a conversation with Arianna Huffington and hawk his new book "Comeback: Conservatism That Can Win Again." Well, considering the question of judgement that quickly springs to mind after considering his choice of which candidate to back and advise, Frum better get his Neo-Con game up if he is to be a Republican Machiavelli.
As he finished up signing books, we approached him. It was not our most tightly vetted truth squad ever, but it illicited an interesting response from one of the architects of the infamous "Axis of Evil" speech. I'm very eager to dialogue about different strategies, thoughts, critiques, ideas on the art and practice of the truth squad. Let's talk after the video.

Thank you for your help.
Yesterday, at a very late hour for me, James Kirchick published online in The New Republic his article "Paul's Pause". As it looked at the time like no reader had yet to post even one word in the comments section, I decided to take the opportunity to speak my 9/11 truther mind and point out why it is more important for The New Republic (and Kirchick) to be focused on a few unanswered questions about Rudy Giuliani and 9/11 than on Ron Paul and his newsletters.
Giuliani's business contracts tie him to the man who let 9/11's mastermind escape the FBI
by Wayne Barrett
November 27th, 2007 3:39 PM
Three weeks after 9/11, when the roar of fighter jets still haunted the city's skyline, the emir of gas-rich Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifah al-Thani, toured Ground Zero. Although a member of the emir's own royal family had harbored the man who would later be identified as the mastermind of the attack—a man named Khalid Sheikh Muhammad, often referred to in intelligence circles by his initials, KSM—al-Thani rushed to New York in its aftermath, offering to make a $3 million donation, principally to the families of its victims. Rudy Giuliani, apparently unaware of what the FBI and CIA had long known about Qatari links to Al Qaeda, appeared on CNN with al-Thani that night and vouched for the emir when Larry King asked the mayor: "You are a friend of his, are you not?"
TPMtv: I'm Rudy Giuliani and I Approve This Message
You've probably heard the news that Rudy Giuliani is finally hitting the airwaves with his first TV ad. Well, we've got it. And we're actually premiering it here at TPM. Even we were a bit surprised, though, at just how 9/11-focused it is. But you take a look and make your own call ...
TruthAlliance.net and WeAreChangeColorado.org Confront Giuliani in Loveland, CO.
Monday November 12, 2007
Loveland, CO - A spur of the moment decision by campaign staff and a local State Representative brought presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani to a small Colorado town one hour north of Denver on Saturday where local 9/11 truth activists would take full advantage of the opportunity to confront the former mayor about his potential foreknowledge of the September 11th attacks.
According to the Reporter Herald Giuliani's staff put a required fundraising minimum on the event of $60,000 in order to bring "America's Mayor" to the small town. Speaking about the short notice and the minimum dollar amount state Rep. Don Marostica, a staunch supporter of Giuliani's presidential bid said “They called me last Friday (and) said you have 11 minutes to make a decision, or else we’re going to take him to Lincoln, Neb.,” Marostica’s assurance that he could raise at least the established amount, paved the way for a visit to this small venue that was kept open to the public.
911 Protesters booted from Giuliani Event
From NBC/NJ’s Matthew E. Berger
LOVELAND, Colo. -- About a half dozen protestors were asked to leave a local coffeehouse Saturday where Giuliani was visiting, after they shouted questions about conspiracies surrounding the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
No formal arrests were made, according to Loveland Police Sgt. Greg Eisentraut, but about a half dozen protesters were removed from the event, after trying to ask Giuliani whether he had advanced knowledge of the terrorist attacks. One protestor, who was detained by police, described himself as the publisher and Editor-In-Chief of New York Megaphone and was led away by officers on both arms, yelling, “I have an excellent attorney.”
“What you did was illegal,” he screamed at police officials. “What you did was a violation of the f------ Bill of Rights.”
Kerik's indictment: The fallout

On our way to an investigation!
Dear activists, colleagues and friends,
We are beyond thrilled to announce that as a result of your efforts on The REAL Rudy: Radios, Councilman Eric Gioia has committed to "do everything in my power to get answers, to get the truth. There needs to be accountability."
Never say never! We worked, we investigated, we fought, and now we're well on our way to an investigation. Councilman Gioia was so taken with the video and all of our signatures (20,000!) that he sat down and explained to us what is going to happen next:
Watch the video: http://therealrudy.org/radios?utm_source=rgemail
With the councilman's support, we can hold Giuliani accountable for his failure to equip firefighters with radios that could have saved lives on 9/11, and get answers to these questions:
"To know that we had failing radios in 1993 and did virtually nothing until September 11 is shocking to say the least," said Gioia [New York City Councilman Eric Gioia]. "To watch this documentary and see the important questions that were asked and seemingly unanswered and ignored for so many years, it's disturbing."
Giuliani Faces Investigation Of 9/11 Radios
The Huffington Post
November 1, 2007 10:10 AM
In the midst of his presidential candidacy, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani now faces a looming government investigation into his handling of the radios used by firefighters on 9/11.
The investigation, which will examine how the FDNY ended up using faulty equipment during the terrorist attacks and why Giuliani gave a no-bid contract to Motorola for that equipment, has been endorsed by New York City Councilman Eric Gioia, chair of the city's oversight and investigations committee.

Firefighters come out swinging in this much-anticipated 13 minute short film. Just released moments ago. Info from the firefighters after the flip.
Giuliani Bungled Preparation in Years After 1993 Attack on Trade Center.
Critical failures by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani before, during and after the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001, raise serious questions about his ability to be commander-in-chief.
"Maybe you love Rudy or maybe you hate him. But whatever you may think of him, check out his foreign policy team, because that's the key to knowing what to expect from a Rudy presidency. Especially for candidates with little or no foreign policy experience of their own, the folks advising the candidate are key. And Rudy's team is made up, more or less, of all the guys who were too nuts or too extreme to make the cut with George W. Bush. If you really, really want to go to war with Iran as soon as possible, vote Rudy. We run down the highlights and key bios in today's episode of TPMtv"
Giuliani's 9/11 Albatross
9/11 protesters hounding Giuliani where ever he goes
Tuesday, Oct 2, 2007
If you live by the sword, you die by the sword. That's the message 9/11 truth campaigners have been sending presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani in recent weeks as they continue to turn out in droves to expose his exploitation of the terror attacks for his own political gain.
Giuliani has been confronted by 9/11 truth protesters at almost every public appearance he has made since he began officially campaigning for a White House run.
Giuliani has continued to callously use 9/11 and its victims as a campaign tool, throwing fundraisers at which participants are being urged to donate "$9.11 for Rudy". He even used 9/11 as justification for answering a call from his wife during a speech in front of the National Rifle Association last week.
Five solid minutes of emaciation however the butcher of 9/11 escapes with only minor psychological injuries. To those of you who intend on confronting Giuliani, develop some original questions and try to shake his hand so he cannot escape your grasp.
Verisimilitude: 1 : having the appearance of truth : PROBABLE
2 : depicting realism (as in art or literature)
Here is my breakdown of what I hoped to do with this collection of films...
WeAreChange is AWESOME. I had tears in my eyes watching this. No words to describe.
You have to see it for yourself.
NY Times Covers Giuliani Confrontation at Ground Zero Ceremony
"... As Mr. Giuliani walked away from the site, the young man yelled, “How could you walk away like that?” and “Scum! Scum!” He said later he was not a victims’ relative. He was also holding a video camera.
The woman with that man, Sabrina Rivera, said she was there mourning her ex-boyfriend’s father, Lt. Robert F. Wallace of the Fire Department.
The potential appointment of Michael Mukasey as attorney general could have implications for whatever slim chance exists for a proper trial of the 9/11 perps. The other reason to follow Mukasey's appointment here is because it continues to illuminate the potential connections among the coup faction and sympathizers.

An Old Friend Joins Giuliani in a Spotlight
By MICHAEL COOPER
They were together early in their professional lives, as federal prosecutors working on corruption cases and later when they were engaged in private practice at the same firm, where they shared a fondness for practical jokes.
Then the careers of the two lawyers took off, and after one of them, Rudolph W. Giuliani, was elected the 107th mayor of New York, he went to the apartment of the other, Michael B. Mukasey, by then a federal judge, for a private swearing-in ceremony on New Year’s Eve.
So far, it's about 70% No.
Should be higher. Please vote.
