Giuliani: "I'm One of Them"

Turns out Giuliani may have spent more time at the WTC than most of us realized, at least pre-9/11. As Paul Krugman writes in today's NY Times:
Rudy Giuliani has lately been getting some long-overdue criticism for his missteps both before and after 9/11. For example, The Village Voice reports that he insisted that the city’s emergency command center — which included a personal suite with its own elevator that he visited “often, even on weekends, bringing his girlfriend Judi Nathan there long before the relationship surfaced” — be within walking distance of City Hall. This led to the disastrous decision to locate the center in the World Trade Center, an obvious potential terrorist target.
The Village Voice article, "Rudy Giuliani's Five Big Lies About 9/11," is a necessary corrective to various myths that the GOP's leading candidate continues to cultivate about his record.
