May 24, 2007
For the First Time, New York Links a Death to 9/11 Dust
By ANTHONY DePALMA

New York City’s chief medical examiner, Dr. Charles S. Hirsch, has for the first time directly linked a death to exposure to dust from the destruction of the World Trade Center.

In a letter made public yesterday, Dr. Hirsch said that he was certain “beyond a reasonable doubt” that dust from the twin towers contributed to the death of Felicia Dunn-Jones, 42, a civil rights lawyer who was engulfed on Sept.…

Rudy Giuliani: Urban Legend

Firefighter Web video blasts 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.…

Big SpenderJuly

cleanup has violated its congressional mandate to pay legitimate worker-injury
claims and “squandered” millions on expenses, an explosive lawsuit
is charging.

Controlled by Mayor Bloomberg, the WTC Captive Insurance Co. and its agents
have “unethically profited” from the federal fund, draining money
available for ill workers, alleges the suit, to be filed today in Manhattan

Specter, Leahy question use of 9/11 fund money

By KIMBERLY HEFLING

Associated Press Writer

August 4, 2007

WASHINGTON: Two senators want to know why a $1 billion Sept. 11 insurance fund appropriated by Congress to help ailing ground zero workers has not been used to compensate those exposed to harmful substances.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., and the committee’s ranking Republican, Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, said in a letter to the insurance company overseeing the Sept. 11 health-related claims that they are considering convening a hearing in September.…

Fire Claims Lives of Two Firefighters at Ground Zero; Wall St. Journal Blames Community

Fire Claims Lives of Two Firefighters at Ground Zero; Wall St. Journal Blames<br /> Community

The tragic fire at the former Deutsche Bank building in Lower Manhattan nine
days ago which took the lives of two firefighters, Joseph Graffagnino, 33 and
Robert Beddia, 53, and which has already spawned two criminal investigations,
highlights problems about which the community of Lower Manhattan has been warning
for years.

The company hired to perform the demolition of the building whose chief claim
to fame, post-9/11, was that it had been contaminated with 150,000 times the
normal levels of asbestos among other toxic substances, (which have since been
reduced to a supposedly “safe” level) has “apparently never done
any work like it”
nor much of anything else since it was incorporated in
1983.…

Fox News’ Rivera ridicules 9/11 Truth activists, man arrested on camera

RAW STORY
Published: Sunday September 9, 2007

Says host Geraldo Rivera to the crowd, chanting “9/11 was an inside job”
at the beginning of the show: “Get a life.”

The protesters continue chanting as Rivera reports on the high temperature
in New York City (87 degrees Fahrenheit), causing the death of one dog left
in a hot car. As Dr. Jennifer Ashton explains, the heat from inside a car will
cause a dog, unable to sweat, to go into organ failure.…

Since it’s release a year ago, the documentary 9/11 Press for Truth, an independent expose of an under-reported 9/11 cover-up as revealed by leading 9/11 families and author Paul Thompson, has become an underground hit that continues to garner support and positive recognition as time passes and word spreads. The film has received near universally excellent critical reviews while being officially selected and screened at three international film festivals including in Brazil and Mexico.…

Reflecting on our losses by Donna Marsh O’Connor

September 11, 2007

The day is somber as it always is now on September 11th. Today it is literally
somber, the weather gloomy and I feel somber. But this year I’m home, not in
New York City begging for 9/11 truth, nor in Valhalla where Vanessa is buried,
nor in Washington, D.C. lobbying persons wrapped so tight in metaphoric suits
that they cannot see beyond their own tailored personae to understand what I
want. It’s really unfair to them, after all, since I can never really have what
I want.…

9/11 Truth Hits Progressive Prime Time on Air America

911Truth finally hit progressive primetime on 9/11/07. Richard Greene, host of Air America program “Clout,” welcomed four guests to the show to discuss 9/11 truth, while broadcasting live from the candlelight commemoration in L.A. Guests included “Jersey Girl” Lorie Van Auken , 911truth.org’s Janice Matthews, Colonel Ann Wright , who resigned her State Department post in protest of the Iraq occupation, and Gina Belafonte, daughter of outspoken justice activist and 911truth supporter, Harry Belafonte.

At the end of the program, Richard tells listeners that demanding a congressional reinvestigation of 9/11 should become a “project” of Air America.…

McKinney: 9/11 ‘Talking Points’ Urged Congress Say, ‘They Hate our Freedom’
Friday, October 05, 2007

In a recent speech in Arizona, former congresswoman Cynthia McKinney blasted
the administration’s handling of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and claimed
that talking points urged representatives to tell constituents that the terrorists
“hate our freedom.”

The charge is noteworthy, even shocking, because it shows that the administration
had apparently resolved to use the tragedy to shape national consciousness in
a particular way.…

A ‘Paper Coup,’ and Blackwater Eyes Midtown Manhattan

by Naomi Wolf
Huffington Post
November 4, 2007

I have argued that in the closing stages of a ‘fascist shift’, events cascade. I am hearing about them, even across the globe. Here in Australia I hear from the nation’s best-know feminist activist, and former adviser to Paul Keating, Anne Summers, who was also at the time this took place Chair of the Board of Greenpeace International. Summers was detained by armed agents for FIVE HOURS each way in LAX on her way to and from the annual meeting of the board of Greenpeace International in Mexico, and her green card was taken away from her.…
