Incoming FDNY Chaplain Forced to Resign After Doubting 9/11

911Truth.org covered in New York Newsday

By Nicholas Levis
911Truth.org New York Correspondent

Saturday, Oct. 1, 2005:

To the left is the front page of yesterday’s New York Newsday. The picture below the main headline (“I’m Not Sure Hijackers Did This”) shows the second World Trade Center tower being hit on the morning of September 11th, 2001.

Intikab Habib, a Muslim imam, was due to take an oath Friday morning as a new chaplain with the Fire Department of New York City. 

Just a few hours after Newsday published Habib’s statements doubting the official story of the 9/11 attacks, he was forced instead to resign the appointment.…

Listen up, and you may hear the truth

by Ellis Henican

March 31, 2006

Planes hit the towers 4 years, 6 months and 22 days ago.

And the story still hasn’t quite been told.

Please, will someone explain to me why all this time later, we are still struggling to fill all these blanks?

Today, we will get a few more details from that horrendous morning so long ago; one-sided conversations with 911 dispatchers in the first frantic moments after the terror attacks. We almost didn’t get this much.…

Researcher probes for answers to Sept. 11 attack on Pentagon

By Buzzy Hassrick

When the Sept. 11 terror attacks occurred, Russell Pickering was working as a professional firefighter in Seattle.

Especially because of his profession, he was deeply affected.

“The loss of firefighters and police was significant to me because of what I did,” he recalled.

His initial interest devolved into probing questions and eventually frustration that the federal government seemed unwilling to provide answers. From a network of contacts and information, Pickering has created a Web site about the attack on the Pentagon, www.pentagonresearch.com.…

9/11 THEORIES FLOURISH

by Kristin Solberg

All the lies from the Bush administration is the main reason for all the conspiracy theories , says NRK-veteran Jahn Otto Johansen.

One of the most debated; why did WTC 7 collapse?

This is not something that just could have happened, there are too many incidents. You can’t even conclude that the administration let it happen, you have to conclude they made it happen , says Michael Berger.…

More Medical Data Confirm Gov’s Ground Zero Lies

July 27, 2006

Toiling deep in the bowels of Ground Zero, Firefighter Kevin Delano suspected he was breathing in poison but continued hunting for bodies anyway.

Now there’s more proof the asthma that has made it impossible for the 52-year-old to cross his lawn without wheezing was caused by the deadly dust he inhaled.

A soon-to-be-published study co-authored by David Prezant, the Fire Department’s deputy chief medical officer, has found that FDNY rescuers lost the equivalent of 12 years of lung function because of exposure to toxic dust.…

It was October 6, 2004, three years after Ernie Vallebuona’s three-month stint as a rescue and recovery worker at ground zero in the wake of the 9-11 terrorist attacks, and he was hunched over and trembling, racked by a pain like nothing he had experienced in his 40 years of sound health. He had just returned to his Rockland County home after finishing the midnight-to-8 a.m.…

Giuliani Faces Questions About Sept. 11

By American Press
Posted March 30, 2007

New York – Rudy Giuliani’s White House aspirations are inescapably tied to Sept. 11, 2001 – for better and for worse. While the former mayor of the nation’s largest city was widely lionized for his post-9/11 leadership – “Churchillian” was one adjective, “America’s mayor” was Oprah Winfrey’s assessment – city firefighters and their families are renewing their attacks on him for his performance before and after the terrorist attack.…

Giuliani vs the Firefighters

April 5, 2007
by Zen Garcia

Rudy Giuliani’s rise to prominent national and world attention was elevated
by his role as Mayor of New York City during a time of heightened challenge
that culminated in the fateful events of September 11th, 2001. The leadership
qualities he exhibited that day won him broad and wide acclaim from the 9/11
commission, "On September 11, 2001, the City of New York showed what it
was made of. The heroism of the firemen and the police officers who risked and
in previously unimaginable numbers gave their lives in the quest for saving
the lives of others, and your leadership on that day and in the days following
gave the rest of the nation, and indeed the world, an unvarnished view of the
indomitable spirit and the humanity, of this great city, and for that I salute
you."

Having been established as a hero, Giuliani has been emphasizing his 9/11 status
ever since and today is enjoying promising numbers in Presidential polls which
opine him as the ‘nominee’ to beat in ’08.…

9/11 FIREFIGHTER LUNG AILMENTS ON THE RISE

By SUSAN EDELMAN

April 22, 2007 — Twenty-six firefighters who toiled at Ground Zero came down with sarcoidosis, an inflammatory illness that often attacks the lungs, in the five years after 9/11 – a significant increase, a new study has found.

The study has angered the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, which complains that the NYPD has refused to acknowledge that 9/11 caused sarcoidosis in cops.

Half the firefighter cases were diagnosed in the first year after 9/11 – a rate six times higher than the average for the Bravest in the 15 years before 9/11, according to a paper to be published in CHEST, a medical journal.…

Rudy Giuliani: Urban Legend

Firefighter Web video blasts Rudy Giuliani

Rudy Giuliani’s reputation as the man who led the city out of the darkness of 9/11 came under sharp assault yesterday in a video that accused him of mishandling the attack and then turning a financial and political profit from it.

The ex-mayor’s presidential campaign moved quickly to discredit the film, entitled “Rudy Giuliani: Urban Legend,” which the 280,000-member International Association of Fire Fighters released on the Web yesterday.

Interspersing attack footage and interviews with victims’ relatives and union officials, the film charges Giuliani gave the FDNY inadequate radios and interfered with efforts to recover the dead.…

Ducking WTC Blame

Letter to the Editor of The Chief, 10/26/07:

Ducking WTC Blame

To the Editor:

The City of New York and Contractors of 9/11 have expressed interest in negotiating a total aggregate settlement with sick and dying first-responders who were exposed to toxic air at the World Trade Center. This settlement will offer a certain amount of money and the city and contractors will walk away without answering questions about their negligence and lies. The money will be divided between lawyers (40 percent) and the 9/11 afflicted litigants (60 percent).…

On our way to an investigation! (of Rudy and Radios)

Dear activists, colleagues and friends,

We are beyond thrilled to announce that as a result of your efforts on The REAL Rudy: Radios, Councilman Eric Gioia has committed to “do everything in my power to get answers, to get the truth. There needs to be accountability.”

Never say never! We worked, we investigated, we fought, and now we’re well on our way to an investigation. Councilman Gioia was so taken with the video and all of our signatures (20,000!) that he sat down and explained to us what is going to happen next:

Watch the video: http://therealrudy.org/radios?utm_source=rgemail

 

With the councilman’s support, we can hold Giuliani accountable for his failure to equip firefighters with radios that could have saved lives on 9/11, and get answers to these questions:

Why was nothing done to improve FDNY radio performance for seven years after a clear need was demonstrated in the 1993 World Trade Center attack?

The BBC’s Demolition of 9/11 Truth

British Broadcasting contorts itself again to blast 9/11 conspiracy advocates

Jeremy Baker

(“The Conspiracy Files: 9/11 – The Third Tower,” BBC 2, July 6, 2008)

If you want to kill a dangerous animal, you go for the jugular. If you want to demolish a building, you destroy its main supports. If you want to marginalize the burgeoning 9/11 truth movement, you attack its most popular points. This isn’t brain surgery.

In a recently broadcast documentary, The Conspiracy Files: 9/11 – The Third Tower, the BBC presents the second of two programs confronting claims made by a growing activist movement comprised of people who doubt the official story of 9/11.…

Statement of September 11th Advocates Regarding the Release of the NIST Final Draft of Collapse of WTC7

For Immediate Release
September 26, 2008

NIST has finally released its long awaited investigative report regarding the collapse of World Trade Center 7. WTC 7 was the third building in the World Trade Center Complex to collapse at 5:20 PM on September 11, 2001. However, this building was not hit by an airplane.

As family members of 9/11 victims, we were extremely interested in the findings of this report. We had hoped that NIST’s report would serve to explain the cause of a total collapse of a conventional steel building and be able to refute the rampant conspiracy theories.…
