Rewriting the Rudy Record

Tom's not the only one who can post items on Rudy Giuliani ...

One thing to look for as Rudy's run for president becomes a reality is attempts to reappraise just how good a leader Giuliani really was of New York City. In that vein, longtime Village Voice writer and Giuliani hater Wayne Barrett has a book coming out trying to cast Rudy's performance on 9/11 in a new light.

An early look at the book, "The Grand Illusion: The Untold Story of Rudy Giuliani and 9/11," is out today:

Giuliani, for instance, detailed an Office of Emergency Management, but then located its headquarters inside what had long been identified as a prime target--the World Trade Center. It was, the authors write, "the only bunker ever built in the clouds."

There will certainly be more where this comes from.
