Giuliani and Foreknowledge of the Collapse

Luke Rudkowski and company get a little more attention by sandbagging Rudy Giuliani as he was about to enter a fundraising event.

Yes, as far as I know, Rudy's wrong when he says there was no forewarning of the possibility of collapse of the WTC towers.

"I--I went down to the scene and we set up headquarters at 75 Barkley Street, which was right there with the police commissioner, the fire commissioner, the head of emergency management, and we were operating out of there when we were told that the World Trade Center was going to collapse. And it did collapse before we could actually get out of the building, so we were trapped in the building for 10, 15 minutes, and finally found an exit and got out, walked north, and took a lot of people with us."

As noted on page 302 of the 9-11 Commission Report (page 319 of the PDF file), "At about 9:57 an EMS paramedic approached the FDNY Chief of Department and advised that an engineer in front of 7 WTC had just remarked that the Twin Towers in fact were in imminent danger of a total collapse."

Discussion of this incident is included in the interview with EMS Division Chief John Peruggia on page 17 of the PDF file.
