Dust to Dust……

18 Sep

In the aftermath of 9/11 the deception continued with devastating consequences for the people of New York……

Protocol……

Ground Zero was technically a crime scene and as such should have been, first and foremost, under the jurist diction of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).  Second only to the FBI, Ground Zero and the surrounding area was the responsibility of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), whose remit covered any potential threat from a chemical or biological component of the attack and/or, any threat from contamination resulting from the complete destruction of the TwinTowers.  In charge of the EPA at that time was Christine Todd-Whitman……

“Good news” – (Christine Todd-Whitman – 13 September 2001)……

Christine Todd-Whitman made a statement reassuring the public in New York that the air was “safe to breathe”, “causes no concern” and “poses no significant health risk”. This statement was made 48 hours after the event.  However, she failed to mention that all press releases were being vetted by the National Security Council who systematically removed any cautionary notes and reworded negative statements.  At this time the EPA had reportedly tested only 10 samples of dust from New York City……

“No Cause for Concern?…..

Although it is impossible to give a completely accurate picture of the contaminants dispersed by the collapse of the WTC, the following data will give you some idea of the sorts of chemical compounds which are known to be a threat to human health:

  • 400 tons of Asbestos
  • 200,000 pounds of Cadmium & Lead
  • 90,000 litres of  Benzene
  • 2,000,000 pounds of Polycystic Hydrocarbons
  • 130,000 gallons of PCB’s
  • 420,000 tons of Crystalline Silica
  • 500,000 light bulbs containing Mercury

How the EPA was able to state that the air was “safe to breathe” and “causes no concern” on 13 September 2001 is not clear……

Business as Usual……

On 17 September 2001 the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) was re-opened without the air conditioning systems being tested or decontaminated, having only been cleaned with Vacuum Cleaners and Dusters.  Again, the residents and employees of Lower Manhattan were reassured by the EPA that it was safe to return to the area.  The only building which was decontaminated using standard procedure was the New York headquarters of the EPA.  Meanwhile, the fires underneath the ‘pile’ continued to burn, with fires documented for months afterwards during the clean up operation……

On subsequent visits to the site, the employees of the EPA can be seen wearing protective body suits and respirators.  The teams who worked at the site for months were given no such protection, being issued only with paper masks.  They were not given any Health and Safety briefings to warn of potential airborne hazards……

WTC Screening Program……

In August 2002 a screening program was put in place at the Mount Sinai Hospital to monitor the population for health conditions consistent with those caused by the chemical soup from the TwinTowers.  They have seen 12,000 patients and recorded 8,100 cases of respiratory, pulmonary and renal disease.  Although disputed by the American Government, the death toll from these cases now outnumbers that of 9/11……

The deception continues……
