Giuliani, more than any single individual I can think of, personifies and is responsible for the idea of a 9/11 patriot. There are few documentaries as compelling as those showing what his office and the municipality of NYC did in coordination with fire, rescue and police during that tragedy. If so, they lied. What is documented is his command center, which cost millions of dollars, failed during 9/11 as did the communication system that was supposed to allow communication across first responder departments. He will always be to me, the man who stared down the Mafia and beat them. And that's an even BIGGER falsehood. The day after HE claimed he beat the Mafia, the Mafia burned down a large fisherman's warehouse. The Mafia families he "took down", still exist.
