RICK RESCORLA... was the 1st VP for Security for the Morgan Stanley Brokerage House that occupied the middle 20 floors of Tower 2 right below where the 2nd Jet Airliner hit on September 11, 2001.

...He predicted the 1st Bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993 ahead of time as well as his own death at the hands of Muslim Extremists.

...He was the last man out, saving 1,000's of lives, during the WTC Bombing-1993 and was in the process of doing the same on Septh 11th when Tower 2 came down on him.

...It was ..RICK RESCORLA.. and his old Army Buddy/Terrorism Expert ..DAN HILL.. that together brought to prosecutors the Brooklyn Mosque's Blind Muslim Cleric who masterminded the 1993 WTC Bombing... not a CLINTON Administration that to this day uses RICK and DAN's example as its own saying on National TV that this is why it cannot be said that it was soft on Terrorism during the 1990's ...WHEN IT WAS.
