Giuliani Defends City's Efforts to Sept. 11 Panel

Former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani defends the actions of city personnel who responded to the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Testifying before the Sept. 11 Commission, Giuliani said the time for blame has passed. His remarks drew heckles from the audience, which earlier heard a report that shortcomings in the city's communications raised the disaster's death toll.
