One leading political light from 9/11 singled out by the mainstream
media for supreme heroism was New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. The effort has
succeeded to the point where Guiliani is currently being boomed in many of these
same media circles as a potential Republican presidential nominee for 2008.
Giuliani has made the media mainstream adulation blitz easier through his penchant
of parading as an all-purpose, All-American nice guy, wearing his New York Fire
Department cap with grassroots relish except for those occasions when he visits
In those instances Giuliani switches to a Yankee cap and becomes one of the
happy crowd as he enjoys the sport called America's favorite pastime and roots
for the home team.
When it comes to 9/11, the very crisis that prompted the Giuliani national
boomlet, however, many questions remain unanswered. Some of the most disturbing
questions arise from the discovery and subsequent comments of Scott Forbes,
someone who should have become a household name had the mainstream media done
its job properly and raised important questions that have been largely left
Scott Forbes was an employee of Fiduciary Trust, a firm located on floors
90 and 94-97 of the South Tower of the World Trade Center. Forbes reported that
over the weekend of September 8-9, 2001, floors
50 and above of the South Tower experienced a power down, meaning that all
electrical currents were shut off for about 36 hours.
The officially stated reason was that the electrical cables in the building
were being upgraded.
In that Forbes functioned as a senior database administrator in charge of Fiduciary
Trust's computer division, he was entrusted to shut down the company's computers
before the shut down occurred. After the power down he had to turn the computers
back on and restore service to the network.
Because there was no electric power above the fiftieth floor there were also
no security cameras or security locks. There were many outside engineering personnel,
however, coming and going in and out of the tower all weekend.
Forbes lived near the World Trade Center in Jersey City. When he viewed the
conflagration of 9/11 from his home he immediately related it to the events
of the previous weekend. Anyone seeking further information concerning Forbes

Giuliani looms large in the period following the conflagrations. Prior to carefully
cultivating an image of someone above and beyond contemporary politics and a
larger than life American cult hero, Guiliani served in the Justice Department
during the Reagan years.
To tamper with a crime scene is a felony. Whenever an act of arson occurs police
representatives would be expected to arrive to quickly service and seal off
the area. As anyone schooled in criminal justice realizes, it is imperative
to preserve crime scenes intact to assist further investigation and potential
In the case of 9/11, we had a series of explosions at the most famous symbol
of American capitalism, the World Trade Center. So what was trained prosecutor
Giuliani's response, the same Giuliani who was U.S. Attorney for the district
embracing New York City, the nation's largest metropolis?
Giuliani brought in Controlled Demolition, the same highly suspect
firm which had completed the destruction of the Murtagh Federal Building in
Oklahoma City in 1995, disposing of all evidence in the process. The contract
that was let just 11 days after 9/11 empowered Controlled Demolition to recycle
the steel of the World Trade Center.
As 9/11 official verdict critic Webster Tarpley noted, "Guiliani has not
had a word to say about this in his memoirs. The city accepted rock-bottom prices
for the steel; the priority was to make it disappear fast."
The steel was transported quickly to China, ending any opportunity to run any
tests in connection with ascertaining how the 9/11 explosions may have occurred.
Meanwhile a nifty political dodge occurred whereby Giuliani and loyal neocon
spear carriers such as John Lehman, a 9/11 Commission member and a former Secretary
of the Navy under Ronald Reagan, pursued a divide and conquer strategy by pitting
police and fire department authorities against each other.
The divide and conquer strategy was designed to get the Cheney-Bush Administration
off the hook and prompt the citizenry to look elsewhere rather than follow the
evidence. This side of the story will be examined in the next episode.
