Giuliani Linked to London Terror Drill Boss

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.


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.

Nope. The story has since moved on to solidly-researched material. It's about Giuliani, Sheirer, Power, Murdoch and Lowry now.

This part of the post unreasonably maligns von Kleist.

The accussation seems unreasonably inflamatory, and pertains to areas that in no way disprove that the wtc was brought down by controlled demo. Nor does it make an effective case that von Kleist is part of the cover up.

Who cares about Alex Jones in this story. He was misinterpreting the '1000' (as part of company with 1000 employees in stead of a 1000 people drill), I don't think he did that on purpose or anything.
I'm a bit irritated with the whole "anti-AJ" smears in this and other topics. It's not really fair and ripped out of every proportion. Perhaps you should remember that you and him (and we all) are fighting for the same cause.
For the rest: very nice article.

Ray Kelly, Ray Kelly, Ray Kelly… Hmmm...

In a linked site from Fintan’s posting above (at, EWing2001 says: “With the connection of participation of Ray Kelly (NYPD) in some tube drills and his London officer, Ira Greenberg, informing Kelly directly after the first explosion, while on the subway (!), one could also imagine a direct cooperation between the Visor 7/7 drill and the NYC Subway Security Drill on the same day.” … “One possible related 7/7 test drill (incl. Ray Kelly) had same name: COBRA (see link above). The name of committee stands for Cabinet Office Briefing Room A.K.A. COBRA”

Who is Ray Kelly? (Thank you for asking...) Ray Kelly WAS the U.S. Customs Service Commissioner before 9/11. Was Ray Kelly involved in making sure that airport ramp area security was “just tight enough” so that not too many drugs & people could flow into American portals and so that not too much money could flow out? Maybe... Could “Ray Kelly and his people” open and close doors? Maybe...

Who is Ray Kelly? (Thank you for asking...) Ray Kelly IS currently New York Police Department Commissioner. Is EWing2001 telling us that “Ray Kelly and his people” may be able to open and close doors in the London Bombings (and elsewhere)?

Ray Kelly, Ray Kelly, Ray Kelly… Hmmm…

Alex did not make up the 1000 people involved story, Peter Power stated that in an interview. Get your facts right. Alex is a sensationalist I agree but he did not make up the 1000 people involved in a drill claim, that was Powers

Let's get one thing straight; Peter Power said that they (Visor) were running the exercise for a company of 1000 people. He wasn't running a 1000 person strong exercise.

Fintan, this shows what a pathetic shallow researcher you are. Alex Jones broke the story and instead of giving him credit for it you act like a jealous school child. "Oh teacher, teacher. AJ made a boo-boo. You have to move me to the head of the class." But in your "debunking" you made a bigger error! You claimed that the exercise drills on 9/11 and 7/7 weren't "comparible". Obviously that's wrong.

Now your agenda is exposed. You want to claim this story for yourself. (Well, it's still not YOUR story since you're just reposting what someone else wrote.) What's the REAL point? Exposing Alex Jones or exposing the New World Order?

Actually, Rivero doesn't say that, it's in Kiley's official bio at the Transport For London web site.


Prior to his appointment as Commissioner of Transport for London in January 2001, Robert Kiley served as ... blah, blah, ... Early in his
career, he was with the CIA, where he served as Manager of Intelligence Operations and then as Executive Assistant to the Director.

Robert Kiley is a Member of the Council on Foreign Relations...

Someone else 'on the scene' as it were. 4 Intellegence Oficers despatched at 9am (thought it was a power surge huh!)

NYPD had expert
already on scene


When terrorist explosions rocked London yesterday, the NYPD had an on-the-scene view of the attack, and rapid information that led the city to heightened security in the transit system.
Detective Ira Greenberg, the Police Department liaison to Scotland Yard, was on a subway on his way to work when bombs went off in three stations and on a double-decker bus.

His train was evacuated, and he walked to Scotland Yard.

Shortly after the blast, which occurred at 3:51 a.m. New York time, Greenberg was on the phone with Intelligence Commissioner David Cohen.

"He was very good, very early, very specific in the information he had," said Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly.

"Everything he told us has proven to be true, it's been verified. He was very accurate and gave us a leg up early, which is what it is all about, and why we have him there."

Kelly dispatched four more Intelligence Division cops to London at 9 a.m.

"Ira is an outstanding investigator," said a former supervisor. "He was sent there because he knows how to deal with other agencies, and he knows how to get the information to help New York."

The sandy-haired, slight Greenberg, 41, had worked in narcotics buy-and-busts in upper Manhattan and in the 24th Precinct detective squad on the upper West side. He was in the Intelligence Division for several years before being sent to England about 18 months ago.

The married father of two had provided information to the NYPD on Scotland Yard's investigation of British Muslims arrested in March 2004 in raids in London and Sussex that netted 1,300 pounds of ammonium nitrate, which can be used to make bombs. The suspects are scheduled to go on trial in September.

The Scotland Yard post is one of a half-dozen worldwide staffed by NYPD detectives. Detectives also are posted in Toronto, Montreal and Lyon, France - where Interpol is based - and in Tel Aviv and Singapore.
