July 8, 2007 -- An alarming number of FDNY firefighters are battling a rare cancer that typically targets women, The Post has learned.

At least eight firefighters have been diagnosed with thyroid cancer over the past five years. Another five have undergone partial or full thyroidectomies after their doctors discovered abnormal cell growth that could lead to cancer around the glands.

The cluster has sprung up among those who responded to the World Trade Center on 9/11 or helped in recovery and cleanup afterward, firefighters said.

The relatively rare illness is known to affect women at three times the rate it hits males. The FDNY cases involve only men.

The National Cancer Institute put the incidence rate at 4.3 per 100,000 men - much lower than the eight cases among approximately 11,000 firefighters on the FDNY force on 9/11.

Young Republicans Support
Rudy’s Presidential Bid

BROOKLYN — Yesterday evening, former mayor Rudy Giuliani was scheduled to come to the Bay Ridge Manor to celebrate his birthday, part of a citywide sweep through the boroughs that began in City Island in the Bronx that morning.

His supporters were scheduled to greet him. Giuliani’s support is considered very strong among Brooklyn’s Republicans, and those in New York in general. At least one club, the Bay Ridge Young Republican Club, has officially endorsed him for president.

“He, more than any other candidate, understands the most critical issue facing us, and that is the need to stay on offense in the terrorists’ war against us,” said Bob Capano, Brooklyn Young Republican leader and staffer for Congressman Vito Fossella, D-Southwest Brooklyn/Staten Island.

Complete Archive of WTC Task Force Interviews for Download

I have spent quite a few hours going through and downloading every single interview PDF file available online and building a ZIP archive with them all conveniently stored together.

These are the original unedited World Trade Center Task Force Interview Transcripts taken between October 2001 and January 2002.

I have taken them from the NY Times website, so hopefully there are no questions over credibility.

More Ground Zero Heroes On The Record: Building 7 Was Deliberately Brought Down

Testimony of multiple rescue personnel that they were told Building 7 was going to be imploded means FEMA, NIST, Silverstein Properties and federal government all lied, revelations demand immediate grand jury inquiry into insurance fraud, vindicates call for new independent 9/11 investigation

Two more ground zero emergency rescue personnel are on the record as stating they were told Building 7 was going to be brought down on 9/11 hours before its symmetrical implosion, completely contradicting the official explanation of accidental collapse.

The new revelations provoke urgent questions about how a building was rigged with explosives within hours when such a process normally takes weeks or months and why the decision was taken to demolish the building amidst the chaos of the situation on that day.

Yesterday we reported on the testimony of an anonymous EMT named Mike who told Loose Change producer Dylan Avery that hundreds of emergency rescue personnel were told over bullhorns that Building 7, a 47 story skyscraper adjacent the twin towers that was not hit by a plane yet imploded symmetrically later in the afternoon on 9/11, was about to be "pulled" and that a 20 second radio countdown preceded its collapse.

Shortly after this article was released we uncovered more astounding testimony of ground zero rescue workers who are fully public and on the record in repeating the same claims, that Building 7 was brought down deliberately and that its collapse was not accidental as the government claims.
