Firefighters Urge "Peeling Of Giuliani's 9/11 Onion"
Spokesman for largest Firefighters'
union speaks out
Monday, March 12, 2007
The press secretary of the biggest firefighters' union,
the International Association of Firefighters (IAFF) has
today shed more light on the furor surrounding last week's
press coverage of Giuliani's snubbing of the firefighters
invitation to an upcoming presidential candidate forum.
Alex Jones was joined on air today by IAFF's
Jeff Zack, who revealed in no uncertain terms that the
image of Giuliani as some sort of a 9/11 hero could not
be further from the truth as far as the firefighters of
New York are concerned.
Last week the AP
After Giuliani pulled out of a planned
appearance at an International Association of Firefighters
presidential forum next week, the group released a stinging
draft letter indicating that it almost didn't invite him
at all because of continuing anger at his "despicable"
role in pulling firefighters off the Twin Towers' debris
pile in 2001 before all hope of finding their dead comrades'
remains was exhausted.
"The disrespect that he exhibited to
our 343 fallen FDNY brothers, their families, and our
New York leadership in the wake of that tragic day has
not been forgiven or forgotten," said the three-page
letter, drafted by union leaders in late February and
first disclosed on Newsday's Web site Thursday.
A CNN report covers this in more depth
Mr Zack explained on the Alex Jones show
that the initial decision from those debating the issue
from New York City and from the national office was that
Rudy Giuliani shouldn't be invited. Zack explained that
"Because of the egregious way he treated our
fallen and those attempting to pursue a dignified recovery
of the citizens and firefighters that lost their lives
that horrific day. In making that decision a discussion
ensued about, well, how are we going to communicate
to our membership that we're not Inviting Rudy because,
you know, he would be the only person that was not invited,
every other major candidate was invited from the Republican
party and the Democratic party. So we drafted a letter
to let people know of exactly the circumstances that
were discussed and why Rudy didn't deserve an invitation."
Before there was a final decision another
discussion ensued and it was finally decided that Giuliani
should be given a platform regardless, so he did get invited,
confirmed his appearance last Monday and then two days
later changed his mind and canceled. The firefighters'
union, feeling somewhat snubbed, decided to release their
previous draft letter anyway in order to give more clarity
to the situation.
Mr Zack went on to explain exactly why the
firefighters hold Giuliani in such low esteem:
"There were a number of issues over which
our firefighters had severe disagreements with the mayor
prior to September 11th, and then his actions following
that horrific day where he made the decision to pull firefighters
off the pile from searching for citizens and firefighters
that lost their lives, and he went to a full what we call
'scoop and dump', where he was just taking all what he
determined was trash, putting it on a barge and sending
it to Fresh Kills landfill. Well that what he called trash
contained the remains of thousands of citizens, hundreds
of firefighters, and we felt that the families of those
people deserved some sort of closure and some sort of
dignified recovery process because they were innocent
To this day the remains of hundreds of innocent
victims of the September 11 attacks are still sickeningly
in the world's largest rubbish dump, on Staten Island,
where it has been decalred by New York officials that
they will stay for ever. Officials, citing financial constraints,
have refused to make any concessions and wish to leave
those victims to rot in the ground with acres of stinking
Giuliani's official reasoning for this was that he was
acting in the interest of safety. The IAFF believes this
to be totally false, Jeff Zack commented:
"For him to determine that it was unsafe,
OK this actually was the most unstable unsafe destruction
area in the history of the Untied States. but for Rudy
Giuliani to all of a sudden become concerned, six weeks
after the initial accident where hundreds and thousands
of people had been coming through and working on that
pile for weeks and weeks, all of a sudden he became concerned
about the safety of people on that pile? That's disingenuous."
Zack then reiterated the real reason behind
"The real reason was that the Bank of Nova
Scotia's assets were buried in that rubble, the day they
got those assets out of that pile, Rudy shut the pile
down, said 'everybody off, we're going to full scoop and
dump'... It was gold, it was silver, it was other assets,
I've seen a lot of numbers too, I don't have an exact
one so I don't wanna give it to you... Our firefighters
were on the pile helping excavate the gold as well, our
problem is that all Rudy cared about at the end of the
day was the gold bricks, not the lives and the memories
of those that were the true heroes that day."
the time, in November 2001, it was reported that $200
million in gold bullion has been recovered from the site.
One day later around 50% of firefighters were removed
from the job and totally denied access.
Many declared they were being disrespected,
that the city was more concerned with gold than people.
Others said the city wanted to speed up the removal of
debris to save money.
'We're on a mission, and we won't leave
until it's done,' insisted fireman Chuck Horack. 'We see
the site as sacred ground. Our brothers are still in the
debris. No one can ever know how important it is to bring
their husband home to a widow.' Mayor Giuliani launched
a bizarre and savage attack on the firemen, saying their
actions were 'sinful'. 'They have absolutely no monopoly
in caring about the people there,' he said.

Another huge 9/11 scandal that has angered
the firefighters and first responders, is that of the
criminal culpibility on behalf of government officials
who certified the air safe to breathe in the immediate
aftermath of 9/11. Mr Zack stated:
"That's a whole nother issue, the extreme
denial, not only in which the Federal Government was,
but the City of New York in cooperation with the Federal
Government, about how dangerous it really was to be on
that pile, not just working on the unsettled situation
but breathing that air full of the toxic particles that
we now know it was full of.
There was a whole lot of discussion including the
Environmental Protection Administration, which said
'the air there is not a problem', New York City and
Rudy Giuliani's administration agreed with that assessment
and continued to put forward the idea that it wasn't
a problem and that it was OK."
We have previously
exposed in great detail how not only did the government
know on the day itself that rescuers were being exposed
to harmful dust, they also ordered misleading information
to be given to the public, they ordered scientific research
results on the air to be falsified, they allowed residents
to return to their homes in the immediate vicinity knowing
the air was corrosive and lethal and, to top it all off,
they have since embarked on a collective program to block
compensation and funding of health programs because that
would be an admission of guilt.
We have also previously exposed how Rudolph
Giuliani admitted to Peter Jennings that he got a
warning that the South Tower was about to collapse.
Why is this important?
No steel framed building had ever collapsed from fire
damage before in history. The event was unprecedented.
To know the building was about to collapse would require
inside knowledge of 'the 9/11 script' and how it was supposed
to unfold on that fateful day.
Remember, right before the building collapsed, firefighters
reported minimal fires which they could quickly and
Why didn't the brave firemen and rescue workers who were
rushing into the building get the same warning? Even if
the warning was only only communicated minutes before
the collapse, countless lives could have been saved.
Consider the amount of people on the lower floors, in
the lobby and immediately outside that could have rushed
to safety in those few minutes.
In the years after 9/11 Giuliani has made
millions in speaker's fees, going around the country,
billing himself as "America's Mayor". As Jeff
"Rudy Giuliani has made millions and millions
of dollars off of 9/11, and the story he likes to tell
about 9/11, and he has used those millions of dollars
and those speeches around the country to build up this
image that he was a hero that day and in the days following.
As far as the firefighters of New York are concerned he
is anything but a hero.
You should really be skeptical about someone who
calls themselves a hero. Who spends millions and millions
of dollars after the fact, building up an image as an
American hero when in fact if you go back and look at
what really happened that day and what the real heroes
of that day really think of Rudy Giuliani, that's the
true measure of who Rudy really is.
This Story, Rudy's onion will continue to be peeled
and America will learn the true character and who Rudy
Giuliani really is."
Giuliani called wanting to search for and
give proper burials to fallen heroes 'sinful' while he
was ordering them to be scooped up, shipped off and disposed
of in a stinking trash heap. He knowingly lied and ordered
false information to be released about the toxicity of
the air at ground zero. Now this man has the gall to paint
himself up as a 9/11 hero and want to use that to become
President of the United States.
