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.
Giuliani said Thursday that it was ”the right decision” because it was located with federal intelligence agencies and that it didn’t really matter because the city’s disaster-management system was capable of being a ”mobile” command center.
”It was a sound decision to put our command center in proximity with the CIA and the FBI,” he said.
Now let’s think about that one. What does the CIA and FBI have to do with actual disaster management – unless it is a big scale disaster, kind of like the World Trade Center being attacked.
Even though Rudy don’t think he does any wrong, the American people see it differently. That is why his run for the presidency has become one of the greatest train wrecks this nation has every seen.
