Rudy Giuliani's Five Biggest Lies About 9/11 [VIDEO]

This is a great piece by Wayne Barrett of the Village Voice that shows Giuliani for the fabulist he is. I was actually surprised there were only five lies.

Yet, plain and simple, Rudy was responsible for more people dying that day than would have been necessary had he done a damn thing to prepare for terrorism before 9/11.

Go read the piece.

Editor's Note: The video to your right features Reggie Cervantes, who is one of the 9/11 rescue workers Michael Moore took to Guantanamo Bay in the movie Sicko to get treatment for ailments they developed from working in Ground Zero in the aftermath of the attacks.
