Rudy's Road to Riches

Rudy Giuliani claimed that he'd never heard of the "NAFTA Superhighway" but his law firm is deeply involved in the Texas leg of the project.

"NAFTA Superhighway" is the term some use for the apparent plan to build a massive transportation system running through the middle of the U.S. It would allow cheap Chinese goods to be shipped directly to the U.S. and Canada from non-unionized Mexican ports, bypassing U.S. ports on the west coast.

Giuliani's law firm (Bracewell & Giuliani) represents a major company (Cintra from Spain) involved in the Texas leg of the Superhighway, called the "Trans Texas Corridor".

Was Giuliani not aware of his firm's involvement, or was he just "confused" over the term "NAFTA Superhighway"?
