9/11 Cop's Lung Death


Edit: Looks like NYNewsday.com is covering this story: http://www.nynewsday.com


January 7, 2006 -- A police detective has died from lung disease, which the NYPD believes he contracted while working at Ground Zero after the 9/11 attacks.

The tragedy makes James Zadroga, 34, the first rescue worker to die from illness attributed to the Ground Zero rubble, a police spokesperson said yesterday.

The Manhattan homicide detective retired in 2004 because of his disability. He died at his family's Jersey home yesterday.

"He was a hero, he disregarded his own health and life to rescue people at Ground Zero," said Michael Palladino, head of the Detectives' Endowment Association.

Zadroga, whose wife died two years ago from cancer at age 29, was in 7 World Trade Center when it started to collapse. He spent another 470 hours in the soot-filled wreckage.

One month after he returned to the Manhattan South precinct, Zadroga fell ill. Within two years, he developed "black lung disease," police said.

I think the 9/11

I think the 9/11 Environmental Truth is just as important as who did it...

I agree entirely; 911

I agree entirely; 911 environental truth is every bit as important as who did it.
one thing about this article catches my eye::
"Zadroga,....,was in 7 World Trade Center when it started to collapse."
I thought everyone had been removed (I almost sed pulled) from #7 long before it was pulled? could the wording of this statement be a lame attempt by the NYPOST at reinforcing silverstein's latest claim that the building WASN'T pulled?

Good point James Ha... This

Good point James Ha...

This is a horrible shame. It literally brings tears to my eyes. We all remember watching these people on our television sets working tirelessly to find survivors. How dare the media ignore a story like this?

I wonder if the media's silence has anything to do with the fact that the EPA and the Bush Administration have a history of manipulating information about the environment to suit policy needs.

In February 2005, "Speakers at the national meeting of the American Association for Advancement of Science expressed concern Sunday that some scientists in key federal agencies are being ignored or even pressured to change study conclusions that don't support policy positions." Their concerns are well-founded.

In June 2005, The New York Times reported that Philip A. Cooney, "removed or adjusted descriptions of climate research that government scientists and their supervisors, including some senior Bush administration officials, had already approved" so as to play down emissions' links to Global Warming. Mr. Cooney served as chief of staff for the White House Council on Environmental Quality. Now, however, he serves Exxon.

In July 2005, the EPA

In July 2005, the EPA purposefully held back incriminating reports about our fuel economy so an Energy Bill that served not the people, but the corporations, would pass. As quoted by CBS News, the energy bill "sends billions of dollars in tax breaks and subsidies to energy companies, but is expected to do little to reduce U.S. oil consumption or dampen high energy prices." The EPA's report stated, "loopholes in American fuel economy regulations have allowed automakers to produce cars and trucks that are significantly less fuel-efficient, on average than they were in the late 1980's." No wonder they didn't want it to be known. We've done nothing to become more fuel-efficient, and in fact, have gone backwards. Now, as a result, we've passed an energy bill that helps us not at all.

In August 2003, CBS News

In August 2003, CBS News reported that "White House officials pressured the agency to prematurely assure the public that the air was safe to breathe a week after the World Trade Center collapse". Why would they do such a thing? Now, as a result, 9/11firefighters are suffering from long-term lung damage, and now, sadly, a 9/11 Hero has died.

Unfortunately, the deceit does not end with 9/11. Hugh Kaufmann, a Senior Policy Analyst at the Environmental Protection Agency, said that in regards to Katrina, "that a government cover-up is taking place right now, as we speak, to hide information about the dangerous toxins in the flood waters of the Gulf Coast region." Hugh Kaufmann was also the chief investigator for the 9/11 clean-up. He says, "that the Bush administration engaged in the same practice after 9/11—covering up the truth about the dangers in the air and water
and lying to the public in the weeks after the disaster."

The sad thing is, there are

The sad thing is, there are people within our Government who are aware of what's going on with the EPA and the Bush Administration, and have done little to nothing about it. In October 2005, the Associated Press reported that "The Bush administration was accused Thursday by senators in both parties of minimizing health hazards from the toxic soup left by Hurricane Katrina, just as they said it did with air pollution in New York from the Sept. 11 attacks." In December 2005, the Associated Press also reported Congress Researchers, "say the Environmental Protection Agency skewed its analysis of air pollution legislation to favor President Bush's plan". Hillary Clinton and Jerrold Nadler of New York , "had criticized past EPA testing efforts and demanded more thorough scientific work.", and
now as a result, the Environmental Protection Agency has developed a new, "plan for testing any dust that may remain in private homes and commercial space from the collapse of the World Trade Center more than four years ago." Lawmakers even addressed it as being "too little, too late", and I'm sure Hillary is thinking about 2006, and possibly 2008 (Heaven forbid).

It's a damn shame the media isn't covering the death of a 9/11 Hero. Maybe it would open up people's minds to what's going on. I guess that not what the "Powers That Be" want.

WTC7 when it started to

WTC7 when it started to collapse. Sounds more like a lie to continue the cover-up not only did Silverstein say they decided to pull it. ...and we watched the building come down. Also Indira Sing(sp) said firemen had told them that WTC7 was to be felled and they moved the triage she was at because building 7 was going to be coming down. Its part of the lie though I am sure the officer is dead I doubt it was from being in building 7 but we cant confirm that with him or his wife can we?

mr. gold, you do know an

mr. gold, you do know an awful lot about all of this! thanx man for endeavoring -



This hit a nerve.

this is their comment:

Comment: Note that Zadroga was in building 7 when it collapsed. This again proves that people were not evacuated from that building even though we have the owner on record saying it was intentionally "pulled".


Here's an updated version of

This family has gone through

This family has gone through so much tragedy in the last couple years. Its a shame the way he's been treated by the Police Department. The authorized Honor Guard showed up today for the funeral mass , where were they Sunday and Monday??? Its a crying shame the selflessness Jim had and to be treated the way he was is just appaling.



The pyroclastic dust clouds which sprang up immediately following the WTC collapses were not the direct result of the collapses but, rather, the result of some kind of separate, evidence-destroying-and-compacting, plasma event, timed to coincide with the end of each collapse.

The plasma can be thought of as a field of ultra-high temperature. Hotter than the sun. The kind of temperatures which are, on Earth, usually only associated with atomic/nuclear devices. The effects of the plasma field can be thought of as "halfway to nuclear" in the sense that molecules will be thermally 'vibrated' into smaller pieces, but atoms will survive. The resulting (few-)atom-sized "nanoparticles" are very special, mostly because they are so unnaturally small, and thus rare.

In fact, it is my belief that an abundant amount of such nanoparticles around ground zero is what made that dust so special, and is at the crux of the secrecy surrounding the investigations (physical, environmental, health).

Such nanoparticles are too small for lungs' natural self-cleansing mechanisms to be effective. Which means these tiniest particles enter the lungs but they don't exit, at least not by the same path they entered.

The existence of an unusual, unnaturally high percentage of nanoparticles in the WTC dust would indicate that "the terrorists" had deployed some kind of secret plasma-generating weapon system as part of the attacks on 9/11.

So the EPA may have been suppressing much more damning information that that of which it is widely believed to have withheld.

Just a thought... (But, oh, BTW, a plasma also would explain the super-elevated temperatures seen + molten metal found weeks afterward! And, to my reckoning, any hypothesis that can account for the most bits of evidence must considered.)
