Official Death Toll In Sept. 11 Attacks Rises By 1

June 19, 2011

Nor Cal Truth    June 19, 2011

NPR reports that the death toll from 9/11 has been raised by 1, bringing the number  to 2,753. The recent addition to the number of people who were murdered without a proper investigation on 9/11 came from a Manhattan worker who inhaled the initial dust cloud (like thousands of other people).

Last year, it was reported that upwards of 900 people had already died from 9/11 related illnesses. NY 1 reported last year:

Rodriguez, of Lindenhurst,  L.I., the mother of two young boys, is among nearly 900 first responders to have  died from an array of ailments traced to their service at the smoldering World  Trade Center.

The clean-up of the WTC site was a disaster in many ways: From hasty removal of crime scene evidence to lies from the EPA and other agencies. Here is a clip from a report at World for 9/11 Truth:

Nearly 100,000 first responders have been exposed to toxic elements such as Asbestos and were not instructed to wear any special equipment to avoid medical problems. In fact, as demonstrated in the shocking documentary Dust to Dust: the Health Effects of 9/11, the EPA and the U.S. Government told them the air was safe to breathe.

Now the recent story from NPR in full:

A man who died last year of lung disease was added Friday to the official
list of victims of the Sept. 11 attacks.

New York City’s medical examiner ruled that 63-year-old Jerry Borg, of
Manhattan, who died in December, was killed by complications caused by a lung
condition he got from inhaling dust from the collapse of the World Trade
Center.

Borg suffered from pulmonary sarcoidosis, a disease in which inflamed cells
can make someone’s lungs stiff and interfere with normal breathing.

The death brings the official count of World Trade Center attack victims to
2,753. Read the rest of this entry »


Lies, Lawsuits, and Legislation: A Brief History of the 9/11 First Responders Hellish Rollercoaster Ride

January 4, 2011

This started as a much smaller opinion piece on “H.R.847 – James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010.” Obviously it turned into something else, a brief history maybe, but as always there is so much more…

“This is a time for reflection, not retribution.” – Barack Obama, 2009

Obama is no hero. Only after so many wrongs could the recently passed 9/11 Health legislation seem right.

The Twin Towers on 9/11, had they not been destroyed by demolitions, would have been a hard days work for the NYPD and NYFD; yet the fires would have been put out. In fact in many parts of the buildings the fires were put out, or going out. It is quite possible that the NYFD would have lost a few good men through the day fighting the fires inside the WTC on 9/11 had they had the chance to do so, maybe 10 to 15 firefighters even. But surely not hundreds, especially not a thousand.

343 of NY’s first responders were killed in the World Trade Center demolitions of 9/11/01. They were murdered along with thousands of civilians and no one responsible has gone to jail for those crimes.

The WTC demolition created a cloud of debris-turned-to-dust that covered the city of Manhattan streets, homes, schools and lungs of tens of thousands of people.  This could not have happened without explosives and demolitions; volcanoes aside.

The month following 9/11 was so filled with mistakes, possible criminal intent, disinformation, and irresponsibility from the EPA  and CEQ that I will just have to list some highlights below:

9/11 Health Bill Slated To Hit House Floor Today (Wednesday)

September 29, 2010

souerce: NY Observer   July 29, 2010

The office of Congressman Jerrold Nadler emails to say that the James Zadroga 9/11  Health and Compensation Act, which would provide health care to first 9/11 first responders and provide economic help to those hurt in the attacks, is expected to receive an up-or-down vote on the House floor tomorrow today.

In July, the bill failed, but was then operating under a requirement that it achieve 2/3rds vote, a parliamentary move by Democrats to keep the Republican minority from adding amendments. This time, the bill is expected to pass, even if Republicans add so-called “poison pill” amendments. The money—to the tune of $5 billion—has already been appropriated, and would cover 50,000 first responders and survivors of the attacks.

President Obama has indicated that he will sign the bill.


Students Sick With 9/11-Related Illnesses Want Federal Help

July 25, 2010

There is a video at the source…

source: New York 1    July 25, 2010

In addition to the emotional trauma they faced after the World Trade Center attacks, students who went to schools in Lower Manhattan say they are also facing respiratory problems, and now they also want the federal government’s help.

Current and former students were told it was safe to return to class after September 11th, and they did, exposing themselves to the same toxic air inhaled by first responders.

“They were minors during 9/11; they had no options. They were ordered back to school because the EPA said that the air was safe, and they had no ability to say yes or no,” said Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer. “And now we’re finding out that it may be that some of these children are going to come down with very serious illnesses.”

N.Y.P.D. Precinct Honors Fallen 9/11 Responder

July 21, 2010

Condolences from myself to the family of Brian Mohammed.

 I know this is a terrible loss and a very difficult time, all I can offer is a little perspective: In 2006 I held a fundraiser for the first responders of Ground Zero, The Feal Good Foundation was my exact recipient of donations. Anyhow, I raised a couple of thousand via a silent auction and food/drink sales along with simple donations. I knew it was a drop in the bucket(s) compared to what was needed for the potentially enormous number of sick, and soon to be sick 9/11 responders.

I felt that the alliance of 9/11 responders, working class citizens, along with activist “truth” groups was essential and on the horizon. Unfortunately I don’t think that the full potential of the two groups alliance has been realized.

When you are ready, I feel that it is important that you look, really look, at what happened to your husband, or father, or son. How did those buildings turn from 110 solid stories of skyline to absolute powder and dust covering Manhattan? Fires are not enough, even with a large plane impact, to bring those buildings down in the way they came down. This is not even to mention the weird collapse of World Trade Center #7 on 9/11. None-the-less, that dust has made a lot of people terminally sick.

The nature and true cause of the WTC destruction is only the beginning of a series of criminal acts, including Christine Todd Whitman’s statements as EPA Director to Ground Zero workers, that led to Brian Mohammed’s death. Again, I am sorry – I wish none of this was so.

Lieutenant Brian Mohammed, a fallen police officer who served on the Upper West Side, was honored Friday with a plaque dedicated in his name at the 20th Precinct station at 120 W. 82nd St. between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues.

Mohammed died from illnesses he contracted as a result of his work on the rescue and recovery efforts at Ground Zero in the weeks after the Sept. 11 attacks at the World Trade Center.

Just Like 9/11? Oil Spill Responders Are Getting Sick … But Are Being Told They Don’t Need Any Safety Gear

The U.S. government suppressed health information after 9/11. For example, as Newsday noted in 2003:

 In the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center, the White House instructed the Environmental Protection Agency to give the public misleading information, telling New Yorkers it was safe to breathe when reliable information on air quality was not available.

 That finding is included in a report released Friday by the Office of the Inspector General of the EPA.

Because the government lied about the health risks involved, many heroic first responders didn’t use any real precautions, and so have gotten sick and died. And see this.

The same thing appears to be happening in connection with the Gulf oil spill.

Potential $657 Million Settlement of over 10,000 9/11 Related Health Claims

March 13, 2010

March 13, 2010

A group of three news outlets articles on the subject follows below.

This is taken from an AP report:

Lawyers and city officials expressed confidence Friday that they can get ground zero responders to sign on to a settlement that would pay up to $657 million to workers who developed health problems after toiling in the ruins of the World Trade Center.

Thousands of workers who claim to have been sickened by dust and debris will have three months to decide whether to accept the package. If 95 percent don’t say yes, the deal is off.

The decision will be a complicated one, but a lead attorney for the firm that negotiated the settlement said most of the feedback from clients so far has been good.

Time To Rescue Our 9/11 Heroes Ill From Ground Zero Cleanup

September 10, 2009

“I knew right away they’d need ironworkers to cut through those collapsed beams,” he recalled.

Picurro joined thousands of hardhats who showed up at Ground Zero that first night. They helped retrieve bodies, battle flames and clear debris.

Along with the cops, firefighters and other emergency responders, they were lauded as heroes then. Their selfless actions gave us solace and hope amid all that grief.

They did not know then about the toxic soup of chemicals in the dust and in the air. Federal and city health officials downplayed any danger at the time. They even dared tell the public the air was safe to breathe.

Now, Joe Picurro, 42, is dying. His family is destitute and his faith in our country’s leaders has been shattered.

The list of ailments ravaging his body is stunning.

Immune system cancer found in young 9/11 officers

August 10, 2009

This is real old news for some of us. Don’t forget that on September 18th, 2001 Christine Todd Witman stated publicly that the air was safe to breathe. It was later revealed that the NSA had direct control over the EPAs press releases. However by Christine Witman saying those words she is a direct accomplice in the crime of premeditated murder. Hundreds have now died from their health failures due to those lies. Tens of thousands of people have had their health and lives negatively affected as well. The stark reality is mainstream news will not expand on this issue because the eventual question will be “how did 267 stories of concrete and steel get to be so small that it would pass through their airways and lungs and literally into their blood cells?” (If you don’t know the answer, click here and here…also here) What, you didn’t know survivors of 9/11 still want a new investigation?  -ed

source: AP

NEW YORK – Researchers say a small number of young law enforcement officers who participated in the World Trade Center rescue and cleanup operation have developed an immune system cancer.

The numbers are tiny, and experts don’t know whether there is any link between the illnesses and toxins released during the disaster.

But doctors who coordinated the study, published Monday in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, said people who worked at the site should continue to have their health monitored.

“What we are trying to get out there is: Be alert,” said Dr. Jacqueline M. Moline, director of the World Trade Center Medical Monitoring and Treatment Program at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
