the World Trade Center was going to collapse. And it did collapse before
we could actually get out of the building." Aha! You see? Rudy knew the twin towers were going to collapse before they collapsed!
Actually, it warrants mentioning that many people knew the towers were going to collapse before they collapsed -- the emergency personnel who frantically tried to radio the firefighters within to get them out, to no avail. In fact, it has been well-documented that, since the radios used by New York emergency workers didn't broadcast between departments -- or function at all within steel skyscrapers -- the firefighters did not receive the frantic maydays to get the hell out of the North Tower before it collapsed.
These problems existed all the way back in 1993, when terrorists blew up a car bomb beneath the World Trade Center. So Giuliani can't claim he didn't know about them. But he did nothing.
That may be cause for some sort of citizens' call for justice. Or, on the other hand, you could believe that Rudy Giuliani, a man who couldn't even win his battle with the Brooklyn Museum of Art over a dispute centering around shit-smeared sculptures, was the kingpin in an international conspiracy to kill thousands of Americans and wreak billions of dollars of domestic damages.
The tin foil is on aisle three, boys.
