Gary Hart Slams Giuliani

by Pamela Leavey

In an open letter to Rudy Giuliani, posted on the HuffPo, Gary Hart, co-chair, U.S. Commission on National Security/21st Century, slammed Rudy Giuliani on his lack of “preparation” for New York, for the “clearly predicted attacks” on 9/11. Gary Hart makes it crystal clear that Giuliani has “not qualified to criticize others, let alone be president of the United States.”

Dear Mayor Giuliani:

Since you have based your presidential campaign almost exclusively on your reaction to terrorist attacks on New York City, and since you have recently accused Democrats of being on the defense against terrorism and therefore guilty of inviting more casualties, I have one question for you: Where were you on terrorism between January 31, 2001, and September 11th?

The first date was when the U.S. Commission on National Security/21st Century issued its final report warning, as did its previous reports, of the danger of terrorist attacks on America. The George W. Bush administration did nothing about these warnings and we lost 3,000 American lives. What did you do during those critical eight months? Where were you? Were you on the defensive, or were you even paying attention?

Before you qualify to criticize Democrats, Mr. Giuliani, you must account for your preparation of your city for these clearly predicted attacks. Tell us, please, what steps you took to make your city safer.

Until you do, then I strongly suggest you should keep your mouth shut about Democrats and terrorism.

You have not qualified to criticize others, let alone be president of the United States.

Gary Hart
(co-chair, U.S. Commission on National Security/21st Century)

P.S. You might ask these same questions of George W. Bush while you are trying to find a better reason to run for president.

  1. Guiliani also needs to answer a few questions on where he was (or his brain) AFTER the attacks.

    Like who allowed the EPA to declare the air safe to breathe at ground zero, creating so many further casualties for years to come.

  2. Guilani is a hack. His record on civil liberties both as a U.S. Attorney and as mayor was abysmal.

  3. Gary Hart, April 29,2007

    Your letter is a responsible and refreshing stride toward the truth. There are “many truths” along the path in a journey of this nature. Where one stops as the destination is a matter of intention. To those who are unaware and believe what they are told, often have no means of knowing whether it is the whole picture or the real truth.

    The fact is that Rudy Giuliani is a criminal and a member of a criminal enterprise. Others involved in the enterprise are President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Bernard Kerik and too many to mention in this letter. They did not want to stop 9/11 they intended to let it happen, then profit from it. Giuliani is one of those who made enormous profits in the first Twenty Four Hrs. Those involved already effectively owned the stock of select companies, which would be selling technology and related products/services post attack. Members in “The Criminal Enterprise” had been paid well before 9/11. Americans were sold out in a sinister plot, which transacted its early deals in the Middle East by Dick Cheney and others, years before the Clintons stepped foot in the White House. Bernard Kerik and I met in what seemed unintended in 1995 in a Luncheonette in N.J. It was not an accident on the part of Kerik and others. By 1998 Kerik asked me to be his best man. An important step in their plan in 1998, which has now failed. Their advance planning techniques are effective to most. “Plausible deniability” being the single most frequent trait in a simple pattern. A common calling card when any bright prosecutor is an active criminal disguised as a prosecutor. When they could not buy me or my services they decided to ruin my credibility, starting by framing me in a Federal indictment in March 2000, based on a report by Bernard Kerik’s best friend special agent Gary Uher who I briefed on their criminal activity in 1998.

    For many years I have been working to expose the truth, in an effective yet responsible manner about Bush, Cheney, Giuliani, kerik and a criminal enterprise. Objectives being to prevent as much of the harm and damage to our country and to see these reprobates brought to Justice. The record of my work in this regard is clear. I am the one who exposed Giuliani and Kerik In November 2004 to the N.Y. Daily News reporter Russ Buetner. No one else did. They subsequently attacked my two minor daughters, Talia and Ava in a gruesome manner. They got my ex-wife to go along because she coincidently had her own tragic-secret to hide so it served her purpose.

    Included in the more than 2,600 audio recordings I made of conversations with others, I have recorded Government officials saying they were told “it is the republican party Line to destroy Larry Ray”, before I exposed Giuliani and Kerik in November 2004. Why would they want to do that? I agreed to work with the New York City Department of Investigation on the Kerik/Giuliani investigation Dec 20, 2004. Walter Arsenault had contacted me after I put out the news in Nov/Dec 2004. It seems D.O.I.was actually a “Trojan Horse” intending to do damage control, find out what evidence I had, secure it, bury the investigation, bury me and I can prove exactly that. Where were they before I gave it to the Daily News? These criminals fleeced New York on the watch of The First Deputy Commissioner of New York City’s Dept. of Investigation Walter Arsenault. During the 2 yr investigation Walter Arsenault was in regular communication with the Bush White House. Being that Kerik had to step down after being nominated by President Bush to head America’s office of Homeland Security, why hadn’t the F.B.I. launched a thorough investigation? After all, it involved National Security, it involved the President of the United States, it crossed state lines and it happened in the White House. I believe the jurisdiction belonged to the F.B.I. Seems Federal to me. Why wasn’t the president outraged and responsible enough to order the F.B.I. to investigate? What was the Attorney General of the United States thinking ? Is Antonio Gonzales even allowed to think ? How come Gonzales did not take action? What about Vice President Cheney’s take charge personality? Cheney may have been to busy, maybe aboard the Sequoia with Greenspan as his guest.

    The F.B.I. is the best Investigative Law Enforcement Agency in the entire world in my opinion. I have worked with the F.B.I. on and off for twelve years and have experience with different agencies in various parts of the world for twenty-six years. The men and women I have worked with are honorable, bright, dedicated and well trained. They were told to stand down regarding Giuliani/Kerik. Not what these men and women wanted to do. Instead an agency in N.Y.C. did the investigation.

    Had the D.O.I. done their job in the nineties, Giuliani and Kerik would have never been thru the gates at the White House, they would have been behind the gates of a prison. If others and I were aware, so was Walter Arsenault.

    We had been working in the Eastern European Region and in 1994 it became clear to me that there existed a very dedicated effort to execute a large scale terrorist attack on the United States. None of us knew at the time in 1994 the attack would come to be known as 9/11. My effort since to expose the truth has been unnaturally difficult, unnaturally long and unnaturally costly. The American Terrorists; the very corrupt Bush/Cheney White House, and many corrupt politicians and officials such as Gonzales, Chertoff, Giuliani/Kerik , and Wolfowitz to only name a few. The ENEMY WITHIN.

    My two little girls and I have paid an unimaginable price and still are. Hurting my children is more painful than every other tactic they used to discourage and /or stop me in their effort to make sure I did not expose what I discovered in my work in Eastern Europe during the Bush Sr. Presidency regarding activities of Dick Cheney and others.

    N.A.T.O. I had been brought in to the Kosovo Crisis in an effort to avoid the senseless casualties to come in a ground offensive. I feel the Pentagon very accurately estimated anticipated casualties if a ground assault commenced. After I listened to the intelligence briefing the first night I was in Belgium at N.A.T.O. Headquarters, based on my analysis I presented a recommendation, which I believed to be the only available option. All in the room with the exception of Colonel Sponbeck agreed with me and asked how do we implement. I designed and submitted my tactical plan as I saw it. The necessary steps were completed over the next two days and I was then authorized. My first stop in the operation was Moscow. I accomplished both objectives, the cessation of the bombing campaign and mitigate the need for a ground offensive, thus avoiding the senseless loss of ground troops.

    I had also been tasked after flight 800 went down while Departing N.Y., to locate and retrieve any of the surplus Stinger Missiles we supplied when we appropriately backed the Mujahidin during the Afghan Conflict. I was tasked originally by the F.B.I. I located and arranged to take that load of stingers out of circulation. There were logistical problems for the Bureau and time not being friendly I completed that task with the C.I.A. I am told it was the largest load recovered at the time, which concerned me since I was tasked due to an emergent need, before that I had never paid attention that program and I would have thought we as a Nation would have been more successful in that regard.

    Mr. Hart I presume you have more than enough experience to know that any individual who is capable of successfully attaining objectives as the ones I state in this letter must be regarded in a particular manner to be tasked to begin with. I am and always have been proud of the fact I am an American.

    The current exposure of President Bush, Vice President Cheney, and others yet to be named, for lying to the American people about the link between Sadam Hussein and Al queda is directly due to my effort. It is well documented. The Washington Post Easter Sunday Cover Article, about the Bush White House and U.S. Attorney Gonzales knowing in advance about Bernard kerik Rudy Giuliani happened because I gave it to the Washington Post. Take a look at what was going on before and after that article.

    Cheney and others are responsible for the murders of United States Marines and other U.S. Military Personnel. How did it get this far?

    From President Bush, V.P. Cheney, Mike Chertoff, Bernard kerik all the way down to Judge Thomas Dilts, Judge Julie Marino, Judge Anne Bartlett, the D.Y.F.S office in Somerset County Court, Union County Prosecutors Office, Livingston twp and others in New Jersey will be exposed and charged for their crimes. Then it will be the responsibility of the Justice system in America to administer the law in a balanced and honest manner, nothing less, nothing more. It is of paramount importance to all of us the system do as it is intended in order for our country to begin healing. No witch hunts and burnings, yet no special favors either. All Americans and the entire world are already watching.

    Senator Hart, I was aware pre 9/11 of the reports you reference, including briefings with N.Y. Port Authority. Giuliani did do things, one was to build the Ultra Expensive Emergency Command Office in the World Trade Center, just one more for people to ask ” how could Rudy have made a mistake like that “? It is simple he didn’t make a mistake, it is the same pattern of his advance planning, he intended it to be one of several seeds of doubt to the public, worst yet maybe a jury. The same as asking, how could a man as smart as Rudy make someone who, is as ignorant, has a record of ties to organized crime and as uneducated as Bernard Kerik not only commissioner of corrections but then make him the New York City Police Commissioner? To ask it is to answer it.

    It is interesting after I fought alone for so long and have endured so much stating all along that Bush/Cheney wants America to go to war with Iraq for a sinister criminal agenda and finally get it out in the media, now George Tenet comes out stating the same thing. Curious.
    I hope some committee is already prepared to plug the wholes in our National Security due to many people who hold positions across the country in Homeland Security jobs as installs by Giuliani, Cheney, Kerik, or Chertoff.

    I am confident Mr. Giuliani and others will soon be charged, arrested and in jail awaiting trial for more than just witness tampering. I know, since I am one of the witness’s Giuliani has tampered with.

    They are guilty of Treason.

    I have recently contacted the office of Hillary Clinton since she wants to question Rudy Giuliani in an open forum regarding the removal of the World Trade Center debris. I have not heard back from her.

    I have supportive evidence and can prove any of the above. I am willing to speak with you further if you like. You can contact me by email or can always ask Chuck Pitman, or Jim Jones, two very honorable friends.

    Warm Regards,
    Lawrence Ray

  4. Mr. Ray,

    What I can interpret from this sounds improbable, but mostly whatever you’re trying to say isn’t clear.

    Can you tighten it up a little bit, and focus on a few main points to begin with.


  5. I apologize but I need to vent. I was doing some more research on Giuliani today and I must say I am becoming more and more disgusted. I have never been fond of his nasty affairs and subsequent divorces, which exhibit his poor moral underpinning. After all, with the pervasive amount of bureaucratic corruption existing in the political world today, the last thing I want to do is elect an offical who has openly been deceitful to the people he allegedly loves and cares most about. If he can’t be honest and loyal in his family affairs, those with whom he resides, will he be honest and loyal to American people at large? Speaking of his current marriage, I can forgive the “my wife will be part of my cabinet” comment and the more bewildering, my wife is an expert on “bio-terrorism” statement, but to many voters these rhetorical muddles question his champion presidential attribute of national defense. After all, do we really want his 3rd wife with a nurses background to help him in developing are strategic defense plan in the war against terror?
    Also, I am sick of him riding the 9-11 carriage around the GOP, while waiving his hands as if he was the Savior of Manhatten. I respect Giuliani’s leadership during the aftermath of 9-11, he did demonstrate some leadership skills. However, I feel that the various accolades he received, were not so much an indication of his strength as a leader but rather an outpouring of a Country to a city during a time of crisis and upheaval. Giuliani in time became a symbol of ALL those who acted heroically. Of course, every presidential contender will use his past achievements to further their cause, but what else does Giuliani have to offer? Yes, I am aware of his New York’s crime improvement, something that is commendable, but is it a pressing national issue? An issue which should determine the next president of the U.S?
    What pesters me is how much he benefited personally and finanically because of 9-11. I have no problem with giving honor where it is due, but the fact that he made hundreds of thousands of dollars off rebuilding/reconstruction contracts, inside investments that followed, and the thousands of dollars for every speech he gave afterwards is bothersome.
    The fact that he is arguably pro-abortion and pro-gay marriage is really a thorn in my side. In this day and age those are the true indicators of a social conservative. Yes, he is for small goverment and tax cuts, but what GOP candidate isn’t? With regards to the war, I am somewhat concerned with his approach, as I am with Romneys and McCains, however nothing is strikingly impressive about Giuliani candidancy. The only unique feature he offers as a GOP contender is his liberal social views, something that hinders his GOP credibility. Out of all of the candidates I am strongly leaning towards Mitt Romney.

  6. Lawrence Ray, Hero


    The Federal Government OPR, is in the process of overturning the “noted conviction” of Lawrence Ray.

    Nonetheless, sticking to the facts that have been out, Berard Kerik has been offered two years in prison as a plea deal, Kerik was arrested, charged and indicted in June 2006 in the Bronx. I’m sure you saw it in the news that other charges are coming out in the future in addition to what you are reading.

    Obviously, everyone in the world sees factually that he is a criminal.

    Doesn’t it make you wonder when you look into the record of the past, Kerik has criminal involvement as a teenager in Passic, there is in public record ties to organized crime in the 80’s. Kerik was kicked out of Saudi Arabia framing a Saudi doctor and they were kicked out of their own country.

    Additionally, there is a public record of DEA doing several investigations into Kerik and his partner Jerry Spiezile for taking money on drug raids when they were attached to the DEA Task Force. Kerik is a high school dropout and Phil, I am sure you are aware there are far too many other incidences of Kerik’s wrong doing to speak of. It does not beg any question in this instance, most people that I’ve spoken with are stunned about how glaringly obvious that it was no secret to people like Guiliani. Why would R Guiliani, an accomplished Federal Prosecutor have picked a man like B Kerik to Head the largest city police dept. in the world as the Commissioner of N.Y.P.D.

    As we have been , and did not need 911 to make us suddenly aware, of the existence of terrorism and the threat it always posed to our National Security,

    can you stop and think, it is abundantly apparent that R. Guiliani had to have know about all this all along. Nonetheless can you imagine that Bernard Kerik was the very man that our President chose to head the Department of Homeland Security.

    Be mindful it was at the request and urging of Rudi Guiliani. As far as I am concerned, whether intentional or mistake it would have been an unforgivable and frightening crime to be committed upon the American public by any president. History would have been looking back at this as left to be as another HUMAN ATROCITY. All of us will never forget the horror of 911. It has brought about changes of everyday life for everyone,

    Yet, Rudi Guliani and Bernard Kerik, as all of us are finding out have made and will continue to make extraordinary money upon the souls of the deceased of 911, and the profits are being paid by the pain and hard earned dollars of every single American.

    Everyone should stop, reflect and be thankful that one man, Lawrence Ray cared so much about all of us, had the integrity and the immense courage in December of 2004, to step forward with the truth reversing what was at a minimum an irresponsible and horrifying decision of President Bush.

    I don’t know if you are aware that is not the first time Lawrence Ray has done something of this magnitude for so many people. It was clearly beneficial to so many thousands of people.

    Look back to the recent Kosovo Crisis. specifically at the commitment American Troops and all attempts to stop the bombing as to avoid the senseless loss of live of thousands of American Troops.

    Larry, thank you….you are my Hero and my friend
