Rudy's 9/11 Glory Has Worn Thin
Outraged relatives of World Trade Center victims heckled former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani on Wednesday as their hopes that he would be grilled by the Sept. 11 commission faded in the face of gentle questioning and effusive praise from panel members.Julia at Sisyphus Shrugged has more on Guiliani's brilliance leading up to 9/11.
'My son was murdered because of your incompetence!' shouted Sally Regenhard, whose firefighter son died in the trade center. Seated three rows behind Giuliani, she jabbed her finger at the former mayor and waved a sign that read 'Fiction' as he gave the city's emergency response a glowing review.
Giuliani finished his testimony and abruptly left the auditorium minutes later, upsetting family members who said they received few answers. Monica Gabrielle, who lost her husband, Richard, called it a 'lost opportunity.'
'This was not a time for Rudy Giuliani to talk about all the great things he did on 9/11,' she said. 'He can save that for his talking tours. He should have told us what went wrong and what we should do now.'
