America's Mayor My Ass!

[ From Sisyphus Shrugged, one of my fav blogs ] :

but he promises to never ever ever do it again.

NEW YORK City officials are investigating whether six Manhattan buildings are in violation of the city's building and fire codes by storing tens of thousands of gallons of diesel oil.

The city's Buildings and Fire Departments are concerned that the fuel tanks at the buildings could pose a severe safety hazard in the event of an accident or another terrorist attack, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

The investigation was prompted by the collapse of 7 World Trade Center after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Some experts have said that a fire fed by gallons of diesel fuel contributed to the building's collapse.


The tank in question, of course, in 7 World Trade, was the one Rudy Giuliani had put there to power the bunker he overrode his safety consultants and located there to funnel some city money to a campaign contributor. Building 7 was never hit. America's mayor blew it up with his little bunker bomb.

Still want him?
