Rudy Giuliani: poser or hero?

Rudy Giuliani, self-styled 9/11 hero and presidential wannabe has always struck me as a bit of a poser, a man who turned a city's tragedy into a personal advantage. Now Giuliani wants to become "mayor of America" on the back of his 9/11 success with a strongly "war on terror" driven campaign.

But not every New Yorker is keen on Rudy. Below's a group of NY fire-fighters and some relatives that hold Giuliani responsible for the massive loss of life among New York's finest. Is this just another case of negative campaigning in the run-up to 08 or is there truth in what these people claim?

Gert...several months after 9/11, I had the opportunity to have spoken to 2 of the brave Firefighters who had been there that day....and they had shared similar accounts regarding their inadequate radio equipment, and the bodies of those who are in...the landfill.

I would say that from my personal experience talking with those wonderful brave souls (many years before this video)...I would have to believe the information contained in this video...and if true (and I have no reason to doubt those men or the video)...it is truly very sad that Julie-Anne is running on his alleged 9/11 performance record...
