  •  Actually, Bldg 7 (3+ / 0-)

    was the home to Guiliani's emergency operations center. Really smart of him to build it in the only complex in the US that had been attacked by foreign terrorists before.

    Giuliani has been widely criticized for his decision to locate the Office of Emergency Management headquarters on the 23rd floor inside the 7 World Trade Center building. Those opposing the decision perceived the office as a target for a terrorist attack in light of the previous terrorist attack against the World Trade Center in 1993.[83][84][85] The office was unable to coordinate efforts between police and firefighters properly while evacuating its headquarters.[86] Large tanks of diesel fuel were placed in 7 World Trade to power the command center.

      Giuliani used bldg. 7 to plan the demolition, so it had to come down to hide the evidence?

      He didn't have an office so he was out in public in front of the teevee cameras.

      After all, Cheney and Bush were both in hiding so they had nothing else to photograph and put on air.

      •  Well, that's what he claimed (1+ / 0-)

        Giuliani claimed to have been at the Ground Zero site "as often, if not more, than most workers.... I was there working with them. I was exposed to exactly the same things they were exposed to. So in that sense, I'm one of them." Some 9/11 workers have objected to those claims. While his appointment logs were unavailable for the six days immediately following the attacks, Giuliani spent a total of 29 hours over three months at the site. This contrasted with recovery workers at the site who spent this much time at the site in two to three days.

        •  He's full of BS (no news in that) (0+ / 0-)

          He was parading himself around for the media since his emergency command center was so poorly positioned in the previously attacked WTC.

          To claim he was working on the site has no merit whatsoever.  He's a politician taking advantage of a situation (typical Republican).
