9. No, it is true. Giuliani testified to it before the 9/11 commission.

See "Long Debunked Rumor Validated by Giuliani", June 3 2004 (http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/archive/scoop/stories/fc/8... ) and more at this thread: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph... .

From Giuliani's testimony:

"... the reason Pier 92 was selected as a command center was because on the next day, on September 12, Pier 92 was going to have a drill, it had hundreds of people here, from FEMA, from the Federal Government, from the State, from the State Emergency Management Office, and they were getting ready for a drill for biochemical attack. So that was gonna be the place they were going to have the drill. The equipment was already there, so we were able to establish a command center there, within three days, that was two and a half to three times bigger than the command center that we had lost at 7 World Trade Center. And it was from there that the rest of the search and rescue effort was completed."

"The transcript of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani's testimony to the 9-11 Commission during the May 18-19, 2004 hearings in New York is the only transcript of that hearing omitted from the Commission website."

And from the NYC government:

On May 22, 2002, OEM, along with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOH), held the first-ever TriPOD (Trial Point of Dispensing) drill (see Press Release). Originally scheduled for September 12, 2001, TriPOD was designed to determine the feasibility of dispensing medication to a large section of the populace during a biological attack. Hundreds of NYPD and FDNY cadets stood in as "patients," while OEM and DOH personnel, along with volunteers from New York Cares, manned "griage" (greeting and triage), triage, medical evaluation and dispensing areas.

For purposes of this drill, TriPOD personnel anticipated treating over 1,000 victims every hour.
