Firefighters Oppose Giuliani

The 280,000 member International Association of Fire Fighters Union has come out against former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani for reducing the number of workers searching for the remains of those lost in the 9/11 attacks.

The Associated Press reports that the Union accused the Republican hopeful "of expediting the clean-up process with a 'scoop-and-dump' operation after the recovery of millions of dollars in gold, silver and other assets from the Bank of Nova Scotia that had been buried."

In a letter written by the Union it says that "Mayor Giuliani's actions meant that firefighters and citizens who perished would either remain buried at Ground Zero forever, with no closure for families, or be removed like garbage and deposited at the Fresh Kills Landfill. Hundreds remained entombed in Ground Zero when Giuliani gave up on them."
