There are several articles in the newspaper today discussing Trump’s cabinet options. We need to hold Trump accountable to the American people and that starts with keeping neocon cover up artists like Rudy Giuliani out of the administration.
There are growing concern about the money he took from the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MeK) when the group was still listed as a foreign terrorist organization by the State Department. The MeK bankrolled a heavy lobbying campaign with several high-profile figures, like Giuliani, advocating for them and finally getting them off the terror list.
I would agree with this statement from Salon:
Giuliani is a closet tyrant, one who yearns for a position of authority to exercise his mean-spirited sense of power. Under Giuliani, Homeland Security can be expected to morph into the domestic policing version of the U.S. military. Serving at once under Trump’s neo-fascist totalitarian inclinations and his own authoritarian tendencies, Giuliani would very likely seek to implement the domestic side of the national security state.
We most certainly want 9/11 Suspect former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the destroyer of evidence to join Trump’s cabinet, and most certainly not as head of the authoritarian Homeland Security.
Giuliani’s Administration has been criticized for the removal of steel evidence and its sale to scrapyards in China and India, for the callous act of using remains at ground zero to fill pot holes and for sending the leftovers (that included human remains) to Fresh Kills landfill en masse.
On the day of 9/11, while the remains of the twin towers and WTC7 were still smoldering, one of Mayor Giuliani’s first concerns was clearing away the evidence from the crime scene.
RUDY GIULIANI: “We were able to move 120 dump trucks out of the city last night, which will give you a sense of the work that was done overnight.”
1st NY RESIDENT: It’s wild out here. They just keep coming look! It doesn’t stop. There’s more, I keep thinking it’s the end but an it’s not.”
Despite reassurances that the rapid removal of the evidence from Ground Zero was important for emergency access, this process went far beyond merely clearing a path for rescue workers. As Erik Lawyer, founder of Firefighters for 9/11 Truth points out, the massive operation to haul away over 1.5 million tons of debris and to sell much of the steel to Chinese firm Baosteel at discount prices was not just an overzealous approach to clearing the area, but was itself a crime.

Why did Ehud Olmert, the former mayor of Jerusalem, lobby for Giuliani? It was Ehud Olmert, who within hours of the attack, from the BBC in London, set the tone for 1) who did 9/11 and 2) how the US was going to respond. This is highly suspect.
Reject Trump’s plan to put Giuliani in his cabinet. We do not want any more Bush-Israeli lackeys covering up crimes against humanity. Share this post using #NOGiuliani in #TrumpsCabinet!
