NEW YORK, New York, August 8, 2007 (ENS) – The New York Press Photographers
Association is asking members of the media who covered the September 11 attacks
on New York’s World Trade Center to contact the association.
These journalists were exposed to the same toxic chemicals and dust as first
responders, and the association wants to ensure that they receive worker’s compensation
for health problems resulting from that exposure.
David Handschuh, the NYPPA intergovernmental affairs chair and a photographer
for the "New York Daily News," circulated a letter to media Tuesday
asking people who covered the attacks to come forward.…

In January, John Feal was ready to give his kidney to a perfect stranger. But
they weren’t a good match.
That bad news led to a series of events that will culminate this morning in
a Manhattan hospital and potentially save not one life, but three.
The daisy chain started by Feal includes six surgeons who will conduct three
simultaneous kidney transplants at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University
Feal, 40, of Nesconset, said he will give his kidney to a recipient, whose
spouse will give a kidney to a second recipient, whose spouse will give a kidney
to Paul Grossfeld.…
On Saturday, August 26th at 5PM, Pacific Time, the History Channel aired “Conspiracy Theories about 9/11, Fact or Fiction?” Many facts were ignored:
As to the attacks in Manhattan:
1. Residue of thermate, a compound used to cut steel in controlled demolitions, was found in the rubble.
2. There are eyewitness statements describing molten metal in the rubble just after the attacks, as well as orange to light-yellow hot pieces of metal, weeks afterward.
3. There were witnesses to explosions before the planes hit the buildings.…

September 6, 2007 — Two more cops have died of 9/11-related lung cancer, according to their families.
Officer Frank Macari, 51, died on Monday, after a five-year battle with the disease.
Macari, a 13-year veteran of the force assigned to Brooklyn, developed a tumor on his leg in December 2001, after working at Ground Zero. He leaves a wife and stepdaughter.
Officer Madeline Caro, 41, a 16-year veteran, succumbed to lung cancer in July.…Continue reading
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).…
A city councilman and the cops don’t want you to have that Geiger counter without their permission

Damn you, Osama bin Laden! Here’s another rotten thing you’ve done to us: After 9/11, untold thousands of New Yorkers bought machines that detect traces of biological, chemical, and radiological weapons. But a lot of these machines didn’t work right, and when they registered false alarms, the police had to spend millions of dollars chasing bad leads and throwing the public into a state of raw panic.…
A local 9/11 truth organization founded by two Monadnock Region college students is gaining worldwide attention.
And the New Hampshire primary played a leading role in the accomplishments of Student Scholars for 9/11 Truth.
“We were able to get almost every presidential candidate on video describing their stances on the 9/11 Commission investigation,” said co-founder Justin A. Martell, a junior at Franklin Pierce University.
Martell and Keene State College junior Michael E.…
A new 9/11 investigative drama that challenges the official version of 9/11 events, ‘The Reflecting Pool’, is now available on DVD from reflectingpoolfilm.com. ‘The Reflecting Pool’ follows a journalist who teams up with the father of a 9/11 victim to investigate the official version of the events. Their findings pose a disturbing question that has no easy answer: To what extent was the U.S. Government at fault for the attacks?
New feature film ‘The Reflecting Pool’ may just be the ‘All the President’s Men’ of our time.…
David Ray Griffin on the 9/11 Truth Movement and Bush-Cheney’s “stupid” imperialism
By Matthew Singer
When David Ray Griffin conceived his first book regarding the events of Sept. 11, 2001, his interpretation of what transpired that day revolved around the concept of blowback, that the attacks were a byproduct of America’s decades of aggressive foreign policy toward the Middle East. In short, at the time, he bought the official story of 9/11. He wasn’t letting the United States government off the hook for their role in the attacks, but he wasn’t placing culpability where he would eventually place it: squarely on the shoulders of the Bush administration.…

Sixteen months ago, Brigham Young University and Steven Jones parted ways, but he said this week he isn’t bitter about the academic divorce.
He certainly hasn’t curtailed his volatile research on the collapse of the three World Trade Center towers after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
(Yes, three towers fell, not just two. If you didn’t know that, Jones is particularly interested in reaching you with his message that some other group, in addition to al-Qaida, likely contributed to the collapses.)
In fact, Jones is the lead author of a paper on the collapses published April 18 in a civil engineering journal.…
An investigation of the 9/11 events by a Russian-American journalist and a father of a 9/11 victim implicates the US government in the attacks.
ALEX PROKOP (Jarek Kupsc), a successful journalist, receives a rare 9/11 video tape revealing new information about the attack. The footage was sent by PAUL COOPER (Joseph Culp), a driven researcher, whose daughter died on 9/11. Sensing a good story, Prokop travels with Cooper to New York and Washington, DC, where they uncover suppressed information implicating the US Government in the attacks.…

More than 360 workers who dealt with the aftermath of the World Trade Center
disaster have died, state health officials said Wednesday.
Officials have determined the cause of death of 154 of the responders and volunteers
who toiled at Ground Zero, the blocks nearby and at the Fresh Kills landfill,
where debris from the site was taken.
Of those, 80 died of cancer.
"It’s the tip of the iceberg," said David Worby, who is representing
10,000 workers – 600 with cancer – who say they got sick after working on rescue
and recovery efforts.…

When Cynthia McKinney speaks the words of Martin Luther King Jr, they resound through the church with some of King’s cadence. “A time comes,” declares the former US congresswoman from Georgia, “when silence is betrayal.” The congregation answers with whoops and calls of “That’s right!” King was talking about America’s war in Vietnam. More than 40 years later, before the packed pews of the Immanuel Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles, McKinney is speaking of the American government’s war on its own people.…
The first dramatic feature film to challenge the official version of 9/11 events, The Reflecting Pool, will screen twice a day July 11-16 and July 18 at the Pioneer Theater in New York City. The Reflecting Pool follows a journalist who teams up with the father of a 9/11 victim to investigate the official version of the events. What they find poses a disturbing question: To what extent was the U.S. Government at fault for the attacks?…
