David Frum on Giuliani


Frum argues, in response to a post of mine, that Giuliani is the anti-terrorists’ candidate because he has a proven track record of riding herd on the bureaucracies beneath him to accomplish his objectives. This line of argument would be a lot more persuasive if, in the years preceding Sept. 11, Giuliani had managed to get his fire and police departments to be able to communicate with each other in emergencies.
