Letter to the Editor - The Chief - June 22, 2007

'HERO' WAS ASLEEP

To the Editor:


I would like to echo the comments made by Al and Sally Regenhard in their letter to the editor, "Giuliani's No Hero of 9/11" (June 15 issue).

Sadly forgotten as Giuliani portrays himself as the "Hero of 9/11" is his 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 - upgrade safety procedures within the Twin Towers and 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.
