Reputed 9/11 researcher, Nico Haupt has uncovered an interesting connection between Rudi Giuliani and Peter Power -the former member of the UK anti-terrorism force, who bragged on TV that he was running a coincident terror drill centered on the Underground stations which were bombed.
Just 24hrs. ago we debunked overblown claims by Alex Jones that 1,000 people took part in that drill and thus gave cover to the real bombers.
But we noted that the wild story by Jones shouldn't let Power off the hook, because he was a very, very well connected PR man for the British "securocracy" establishment -both the private and public sectors.
Meanwhile the competent Nico just found exactly how well connected is Mr. Power.
It seems that Power served on the Advisory Board to the Canadian Centre for Emergency Preparedness(CCEP), along with none other than Richard Sheirer, Senior Vice President, Giuliani & Partners.
Former New York mayor Rudi Giuliani, who was in office at the time of the Sept. 11 attacks, was, by sheer coincidence, in London when the recent bombings took place. And by further sheer coincidence, just happened to be only "yards from Liverpool Street station when the bombs went off." [Source]
On the website of the CCEP, their internet page listing current advisors shows only Mr Power. However.... if you go to the Google cache of the same page -a snapshot as of 27 Jan 2005- it shows both Power and Sheirer were on the advisory board together.
FOR SERVICES RENDERED
In case you forgot exactly who Sheirer is, let's quote from his bio page on the CCEP website:
"Until recently, he was Commissioner of New York City’s Mayor’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM). Following the September 11th World Trade Center disaster, Mr. Sheirer, in his capacity as Director of the Mayor’s Office of Emergency Management, played a key role in overseeing the City’s rescue and recovery operations."As well as being director of New York's overall emergency response planning in the lead-in to 9/11, Sheirer himself was the city's on-scene coordinator of multiple agency responses to the 9/11 attacks themselves.
And I suppose this is a good time to point out that Sheirer should really be addressed by his full title -courtesy of Her Majesty the Queen, in recognition of services to British/American relations- Mr. Richard J Sheirer CBE, honorary Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.
The 9/11-related CBE was bestowed by the British Ambassador, Sir Christopher Meyer, in a most touching ceremony at the British Embassy, in Washington D.C. on 28 October 2002.
I'm sure it was a proud moment for Sheirer. Even prouder than his May 2002 attendance at an FCC media security meeting along with media baron, K. Rupert Murdoch.
Speaking of whom, all this reminds me that about a month after Sheirer got his CBE, Murdoch himself honored Peter S. Lowy, Chief Executive Officer of Westfield Corporation, Inc. for his contributions to Australian-American relations at a Benefit Dinner on November 20, 2002 in New York City.
Westfield Corporation, is the outfit which purchased the World Trade Center complex just weeks before it so unexpectedly fell down. [See our 4th Oct., 2001 article: The BlockBuster]
Isn't it nice to see people honored for their contributions to international relations -especialy Anglo-American-Australian relations.
By the way, Nico also notes (thanking Capt Wardrobe) that part of the London Underground system is:
"...a joint venture between specialist public services provider Amey and U.S. privately held industrial firm Bechtel. The group has a 30-year public/private partnership (PPP) contract to 2032 to operate the Northern, Jubilee and Piccadilly lines..."Quite a cosy little club.
But then, I suppose it's a small world, after all.
Alex Jones is Wrong on London Terror Drill
