Dear activists, colleagues, and friends,
“It’s just not possible.”
That was the sentence we heard over and over from families who had firefighter sons, brothers, husbands and fathers killed on 9/11, from experts on emergency response, and from investigative journalists. It was just not possible that Rudy could so distort what happened on 9/11 and his role on that terrible day.
These experts, these grieving and furious family members, were united only by the fact that this story had to be told. Republicans, Independents, and Democrats could agree on just one thing: the cold hard facts about Rudy’s terrible handling of 9/11 and the aftermath.
And so we went to work. We researched, we read, we interviewed. Jason locked himself in a quiet room, working late into the night. Christopher flew across the country at a moment’s notice to interview. Lissette went over and over the footage. Leda kept juggling schedules so we could get the film done. Jimmy worked the phones to try and raise some funds.
And here it is… The REAL Rudy: Command Center. The first of a devastating four-part series.
Watch the video, and share your thoughts on why Rudy failed us on 9/11.
We need your help. We don’t have ad budgets, so like all our videos, we are counting on you to spread these to your email list, to your local paper, to blogs, to websites. We are fortunate that today we have the new technology and ability to reach millions, but it only happens when you send the video with notes to as many people as possible.
It’s time to expose the truth of Rudy’s failures on 9/11.

P.S. The AP just did a story on our campaign this morning, a good sign that our message is getting out there!
