Dead Officer’s Son Asks Bush to Increase Aid to 9/11 Workers

After meeting with President Bush today, the son of a former police officer who died last week from an illness that may have been linked to his rescue work at the World Trade Center on 9/11 said Mr. Bush had assured him that he wanted to expand federal financing for the medical needs of people injured at ground zero.

“I’m not quoting Mr. President, but what I heard is that there will be more support,” Cesar Borja Jr., 21, said in describing his meeting with the president. “I felt a dedication. I felt the motivation and appreciation as well that the president has for my father, my family and myself for coming this far.”

Cesar Borja Sr., 52, died of a lung disease hours before his son attended the State of the Union address last week in Washington to draw attention to the plight of 9/11 rescue workers like him who became ill after they were exposed to toxic dust at ground zero.

Our NIST.... A Compilation of Information

Fellow Truth Seekers,

I just wanted to start a topic where we can compile information and comments on NIST
I hope to read and add my thoughts on these findings

Ill Ground Zero workers demand more support.

It looked like Wolf Blitzer gave this some coverage on CNN tonight, but by the time I really caught what he was discussing, they were onto the poor Ground Zero rescue pooches that are also dying.

Ailing NY Ground Zero workers demand more help

By Tom Hals Wed Jan 31, 4:00 PM ET

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Rescue workers with chronic illnesses they attribute to exposure to the rubble at the World Trade Center site demanded long-term support from the government on Wednesday, and one advocate feared it could become "America's Chernobyl."

As President George W. Bush met the son of a World Trade Center rescue worker who died of lung disease, a group of residents, paramedics and union members gathered at the site and demanded hundreds of millions of dollars to help workers who cleared the area after the September 11, 2001, attacks.

"This could be America's Chernobyl, but it doesn't have to be," said Mariama James, a resident of the neighborhood near the World Trade Center.

NIST WTC-7 Technical Approach and Status Summary

http://www.muckrakerreport.com/id357.html

NIST WTC-7 Technical Approach and Status Summary

January 31, 2007 – It has been 1,967 days since World Trade Center Building Seven (WTC-7[1]) collapsed at 5:20PM on September 11, 2001. After 5 years, 4 months, and 19 days the government has yet to explain how or why this building within the World Trade Center Complex that was situated furthest from the twin towers, nearly two blocks away, the building that suffered significantly less debris damage from the collapsed towers when compared to WTC-5[2] and WTC-6[3], neither of which collapsed although engulfed in fires and catastrophically damaged by falling debris, the 47 story building that collapsed into its basement (footprint) at freefall speed (6.6 seconds)…it is this building, WTC-7, a building that many Americans remain unaware of the fact that it too collapsed on 9/11, it is this very pivotal building in the entire scheme of 9/11 accounts that the government has yet to offer a viable explanation, after all these years, as to how or why it collapsed. NIST claims that it will release its report on WTC-7 in Spring 2007.

Truth Videos Surge Into Google Top 100

PrisonPlanet's got the goods:

A wave of 9/11 truth and other alternative documentaries have suddenly surged up the Google Video rankings, with three "conspiracy" videos in the top eleven alone, including Alex Jones' Terror Storm.

Loose Change is at number three and Aaron Russo's America From Freedom to Fascism at number four.

9/11 Mysteries sits at number fifteen.

Please send this link out to all your friends and e mail lists and help push Terror Storm even further up the charts.

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-7516705476148472744

Having so many activist documentaries in the higher echelons of the Google top 100 ensures that new people who have not previously encountered this kind of information will become exposed to the truth.

We can provide a fresh outreach to millions more around the world but only with your help. Please help circulate the Terror Storm link and the other great films via Google Video.

9/11 in Context: The Strategy of Tension Gone Global

9/11 in Context: The Strategy of Tension Gone Global

Finally, an anarchist interpretation of 911 that doesn’t involve “blowback”. I say “finally” only because I just came across these two articles by Tod Fletcher, posted under the pseudonym Max Kolskegg.

In his interview with Guns and Butter, available here:

http://www.indymedia.org.uk/media/2007/01/360935.mp3

…he also draws attention to the infiltration of the black bloc in Genoa, Italy. Anarchists are a very easy target for provocateur action (suffice it to say that dressing up like a Zapatista is not difficult), and are thus frequently smeared as instigators of violence. Indeed, it wouldn’t even matter if the black bloc was abandoned as a tactic by the small number of anarchists who engage in it, they would simply be replaced (and frequently are, I imagine) by fascists working for the state. The important thing is not to confuse a philosophy bearing an extremely broad back with the actions of a few people.

Rob and I went on the Mike Chambers radio show last night to discuss our new film, "Pandora's Black Box - Chapter 2: Flight of American 77" which is based on the inconsistencies of the NTSB-released flight data recorder from the plane that allegedly crashed into the Pentagon on 9/11.

Senators Want CIA Report on 9/11 Failures Declassified

Revisiting 9/11 Failures - msnbc.msn.com

By Michael Isikoff and Mark Hosenball
Newsweek

Jan. 31, 2007 - The Senate Intelligence Committee and the CIA may be headed for a new confrontation over an old issue: why an internal report documenting the agency’s failures in the run up to the September 11 terror attacks is still being withheld from the public.

The report, prepared by the CIA’s inspector general, is the only major 9/11 government review that has still not been made publicly available.

When it was completed in August 2005, NEWSWEEK and other publications reported that it contained sharp criticisms of former CIA director George Tenet and other top agency officials for failing to address the threat posed by Al Qaeda, as well as other mistakes that might have prevented the attacks.

In a letter sent just this week, three panel members—including Intelligence Committee chairman Sen. Jay Rockefeller and ranking Republican Christopher Bond—revived the issue and asked that an executive summary of the report be declassified “without delay” and released to the public.
