Rudy is making up excuses for his failures on 9/11. First up is the radio system:
But there's one key detail he won't clearly explain: Why firefighters on 9/11 had the same faulty radios that failed them in 1993, when the World Trade Center was first attacked.
When asked about the issue Thursday at an Associated Press appearance, Giuliani suggested it was an insurmountable technological hurdle that couldn't be cleared in his eight years in office that began Jan. 1, 1994, and ended just after 9/11.
A technology hurdle? I was on a fire department in a city of 24,000 people. We had the upgraded radio systems in 1988 and a lower frequency back up. That was 13 years before 9/11. It wasn't technology - that was there.
But that's not the only excuse Rudy is making. I really like this one:
The firefighter union and Riches also take Giuliani to task for insisting on placing an emergency response headquarters in the World Trade Center, even though he had been warned not to do so because it was a terrorism target.
