The REAL Rudy:

Rudy Giuliani is running for office on how he handled 9/11 and here we have proof positive that firemen were killed because his administration did not fix the long-standing (since 1993!) problems with the radios.

This BNF investigative report calls attention to four key questions about Rudy's handling of the broken radios from firemen's families and experts:

  • Why was nothing done to improve FDNY radio performance for seven years after a clear need was demonstrated in the 1993 World Trade Center attack?
  • When new radios were finally ordered, why did the city block other companies besides Motorola from bidding on the contract?
  • Once Motorola was given the contract, why did its cost jump from $1.4 million to $14 million?
  • Why were these new radios never tested?

These questions should and must be investigated. New York City councilman Eric Gioia has the power to begin an investigation. If we can garner enough attention and signers, we have a major opportunity to help launch an investigation.

TPM points out this is not the only area that the media hasn't called out Rudy's fluffing up of his bona fides. The good people at The REAL Rudy are right on the cusp of getting this investigated. They need your help. Please sign the petition and let's get Rudy off his 9/11 Tourette's tendencies.

Can you help us out?
