Herald News - Letter to the Editor - June 10. 2007

Where was Giuliani?

Ashley Kindergan's front-page article "Rudy talks tough on terror" (June 7) discusses Rudy Giuliani's image as the leader of New York City in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

However, sadly forgotten is a discussion of Giuliani's failure to respond in the days following the 1993 World Trade Center attack, and prior to the second attack of Sept. 11

There are myriad issues which "hizzoner" Giuliani neglected to address, including the failure of the city to require that the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey -- which was responsible for the World Trade Center -- to upgrade safety procedures within the former Twin Towers and to adhere to the city's building and safety codes/standards, and the ineffectiveness of the FDNY Motorola radios, among others.

The question is what, if anything, did the Giuliani administration (1994-2001) do following the 1993 WTC attack to prepare the city for any potential future terrorist attacks? Sadly, history reveals that the mayor was asleep at his post.
