Christie Todd Whitman Refuses To Testify At Congressional Hearing

WASHINGTON — The former head of the Environmental Protection Agency is balking at a request by Rep. Jerrold Nadler that she testify before a congressional hearing on the federal response to the attacks of September 11, 2001.

Christine Todd Whitman, the EPA administrator at the time, has declined an invitation to appear before a House subcommittee that Mr. Nadler chairs, an aide to the congressman said yesterday. Mr. Nadler, whose district includes ground zero, is expected to ask Ms. Whitman again before considering whether to seek to compel her testimony with a subpoena, the aide, speaking on condition of anonymity, said.

Mr. Nadler and Senator Clinton yesterday announced companion hearings to investigate what they say was the government's failure to respond adequately to the environmental crisis in Lower Manhattan that resulted from the attack on the World Trade Center. Mr. Nadler's hearing is scheduled for May 22; Mrs. Clinton's is set for June 20.

Ms. Whitman has come under fire from lawmakers over the years for saying the air near ground zero was safe to breathe in the weeks following September 11. Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Nadler have also faulted the EPA for insufficiently testing and cleaning buildings near ground zero after the attack.

A federal appellate court last month threw out a lawsuit against Ms. Whitman, ruling that her statements about the air quality in New York were not "conscience-shocking." Ms. Whitman has repeatedly denied misleading the public about the air quality; attempts to reach her late yesterday were unsuccessful.

One person who will not be asked to testify in Congress is Mayor Giuliani, who has drawn criticism in some quarters for not insisting more forcefully that workers at ground zero wear facemasks at the site. Many workers have since come down with respiratory illnesses, which studies indicate may be linked to the toxic dust at ground zero. An aide to Mrs. Clinton said yesterday that she was focusing on the federal response.

Mrs. Clinton may be leery of a congressional showdown with Mr. Giuliani, as it would likely be viewed through a political lens now that both are running for president.


Outrageous. Simply outrageous.
A freaking pony show.

Nothing like admitting your guilt in such an obvious fashion.

You would think...

Someone like Christie Todd Whitman would be willing to testify so as to find out what went wrong, and why 1000's of people are sick, and dying. I wonder why she refuses? Feeling a little guilty about something?

It's Not The Crime That Kills You, But The Cover-Up

Well that's what we're up

Well that's what we're up against. The elite has grown so rabid with arrogance that they now display their evil "in plain site" because they believe they are beyond accountability. And how wrong can they be when so many people are still refusing to even look at the POSSIBILITY of foul play involving 9/11? They've successfully dumbed down so many people that they can seemingly get away with semi-admitting their misdeeds. Indeed, they've thus far gotten away with EVERYTHING. Even we in the truth and justice movement aren't fully realizing what we're dealing with...though that's slowly beginning to change, thankfully. Let's face it, we all have our own 'cognitive dissonance' to deal with, what little we have left of it.

The Fix is In

Hillary chairs. CTW refuses to testify. Giuliani won't be called.

This farce needs to be ridiculed, mocked and exposed in real time as it happens.

What a tragic joke.

Nothing suspicious about that.

Dick Cheney and George Bush testified together in the 9/11 comission report?
Christie Todd Whitman won't testify?

There's nothing suspicious about that. You crazy conspiracy theorists.

Need positive comments and

Need positive comments and votes here if you have a few moments:

I'm sick of this

"refusing to testify" shit! Everyone up and down this criminal administration is refusing to testify at one point or another. Subpoena these friggin criminals already, thats the point of the congress - checks and balances over the executive. Do your jobs or you are criminals too!

Physics/Science/Mathematics do not lie, only people do.
9/11 was an INSIDE JOB

what if...

what if the congress is complicit and that's why they let the administration do whatever it wants while saying "impeachment is off the table"?
Connect the all becomes very clear when you step back and look at the big picture of what we're dealing with now.
Regardless of what you think, it's probably much worse. To me it's evident that only about 25 to 50% of the 9/11 truth movement realize just how evil these people are. Remove the veil, and you can see the glazed over look in their eyes. It's quite scary.

no, i know

most of the congress is co-opted, ask AlvinR. But there are still some who are honest but are afraid of all this.
I was appealing to those, and being somewhat generally idealogical. Trust me, I am well aware of the bigger picture and that 9/11 Truth is but a piece in that picture. I try to spread that viewpoint daily.

Physics/Science/Mathematics do not lie, only people do.
9/11 was an INSIDE JOB

As long

As long as we allow "special interests" and or foreign entities bide the lobby of our Legislators, we will always have a corrupt system. No matter how many times they call themselves our "Leaders", they cant brainwash some of us into knowing that they are REPRESENTITIVES.
We need to remember they work for us..US!

And we need to remind them we CAN fire them.

911Truth needs a Political platform nor no one will take us seriously. We need to be declared as a legal Political party. Im sure out of all the thousands that read this blogger, there is some outstanding political minded people out there that can make this happen.

Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, Green Party, and the best and most popular..the "Truth Party".

thats a fine idea "THE TRUTH

thats a fine idea "THE TRUTH PARTY" ( would it catch on? yes) especially as the world is fed up of hearing about lying bent americans. reverse your downward spiral ways before it too late. now when the world thinks of the average american they think of them as dumb or corrupt. i wonder why. (sarcasm) and as for those low life, can't think for themselves and call them self christians... something is wrong with AMERICA! GOD HELP US! Why do you put the bad people in power with no morals.

Government the biggest big Corporation

I don’t want to sound like a defeatist but this country is going down economically in the next three - five years we should prepare years in advance on different scenarios or we will never survive That’s what the so called elitist do (prepare). this scheme that there perpetuating is generations old. there family members generations ago thought up this new world order plan the people now in control are just excuiting it.

Solution: Start a Sovereign center (Think Tank) were people of like mind can figure out a way to come up with a solution to get rid of all the corrupt fictions of the world like Corporations Governments Churches debt money created out of thin air etc.. and have an understanding of your flesh and blood brothers and sisters with the life liberty and the pursuit of happiness mind set . People should not be govern and dictated by fictions that is called fascism.

People on this blog need to come up with idea or were just scatter brains

Government the biggest big Corporation

Think tank. Hell yes.

We need to be gettting into this mode. I'm going to start pussing in this direction as soon as I find enough like minded people in my area.

Guess it's still better than black water mercs.

Who, by the way, are immune from war crimes.

Time to lift the curtain and

Time to lift the curtain and expose the theater and its puppets.

They may have the cards stacked but we have each other and the truth.

Send her a subpoena

She won't testify unless she is forced to, that's a real good guarantee. And when she has been forced to testify, she should let it be known what she based her decision on and why. More than likely she won't be summoned with a subpoena.
Would anyone be a bit surprised at that?

FYI, this isn't the first time Nadler has graced this blog

And as someone commented at the time, he needs to lay off those Oreo cookies...
