Writing about web page william911.comWILLIAM RODRIGUEZ,
FAMOUS 9/11 SURVIVOR,
SPEAKS AT WARWICK UNIVERSITY
William Rodriguez, decorated hero and last person out of the Twin Towers, saved hundreds of lives. He was honoured at the White House five times and awarded a National Hero Award from the Senate of Puerto Rico.
His shocking testimony to the 9/11 Commission was held behind closed doors and omitted from the final report. George W Bush’s administration tried to use William's image as emotional justification for the “War on Terror”, and even tried to recruit William as a political candidate.
