Father heads to Capitol for 9/11 responders

A promise to his dying son is why Joseph Zadroga will be present for President Bush's State of the Union Address Monday: to remind Capitol Hill of the importance of continuing health care and compensation for responders exposed to ground zero toxins.

The death of James Zadroga, a New York City detective who responded to the World Trade Center after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, has gained national attention. Two pathologists agreed that his death Jan. 5, 2006, resulted from pulmonary fibrosis, which they linked to ground zero contaminants.

Personal Note: This is not an endorsement of Scientiology. It is interesting though how more and more celebrities are discussing 911 related issues. Albeit some for personal agendas.

January 18, 2008 -- TOM Cruise brands federal officials "liars" and takes credit for saving the lives of hundreds of supposedly poisoned workers at Ground Zero in a wacky new Scientology video.

In the promotional tape, the star states, with a scary gleam in his eye: "A Scientologist is someone who can look at the world and really see what it is . . . and be effective and do something about it and someone who's not asking permission to do that. Why ask permission? We are the authorities!" See clips from the video HERE.

A review of Dust to Dust: the health effects of 9/11
A film by Heidi Dehncke-Fisher

What makes this documentary, Dust to Dust: the health effects of 9/11, so special is not just the chilling statistics it displays onscreen about the poisonous brew of materials that fell on Ground Zero and the surrounding neighborhoods; what makes this piece so affecting is the heart-rending testimony of the warm-bodied victims of 9/11’s fall-out, now living through a second round of slaughter, sadly their own.

MONROE TWP. Since 9/11, many first-responders have had to fight for medical benefits and workman's compensation for the injuries and illnesses they suffered, and a local group of fifth-graders have joined in with them.

The students of Doris Freeman's fifth-grade class are raising awareness of the rescue workers' plight and encouraging people to contribute to their cause.

"We researched how many first responders are now suffering from lung and kidney conditions and how the government often refused to help them," said fifth-grader Gianna Massi.

"We're trying to get people to realize this and to make donations to the Feal Good Foundation so they can be helped."

US presidential hopefuls 'wrong' to play 9/11 card

US presidential hopefuls 'wrong' to play 9/11 card

"More than six years after the terrorist attacks on the United States, September 11 is playing a major role in the 2008 race for the White House. New York's mayor on that day, current Republican front-runner Rudy Giuliani, is touting his response to the attacks as an example of his ability to lead during a time of crisis. But a small group of firefighters and their families say they are appalled that the presidential contender is playing the 9/11 card."

"But Mr Giuliani is not the only presidential candidate who refers to September 11. New York Senator Hillary Clinton has woven it into her campaign ads too. She stood by Ground Zero workers who sacrificed their health after so many sacrificed their lives and kept," one campaign ad said."

"But a 10-member strong group of firefighters and their families are accusing Mr Giuliani of using those deaths to advance his presidential ambitions.
Jim Riches is the New York Fire Department's deputy chief, and his firefighter son Jimmy was killed on September 11. Mr Riches says lives were lost because Mr Giuliani did not provide firefighters with adequate radios. "He's politicised 9/11 from day one," he said. "He's made millions, tens of millions of dollars speaking about 9/11, when the only thing he did that day was get on TV, calm the nation and tell everybody everything would be all right and we'd pull through this. That's all he did." His group is now raising money to run TV ads against the former mayor in Iowa and New Hampshire - the two states which kick off the presidential nomination race. "We are trying to let everybody know exactly what happened that day, to set the record straight on 9/11 that this man was no hero," he added."

NYC Mayor Takes Heat Over 'Hero' Remark on 911 1st Responder James Zadroga

NYC Mayor Takes Heat Over 'Hero' Remark

By SARA KUGLER Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK — City police unions and the family of a dead police detective who worked on Sept. 11 cleanup called Tuesday for Mayor Michael Bloomberg to apologize for saying the officer is "not a hero" because his death was ruled unrelated to the toxic debris.

Speaking Monday to students at Harvard University, Bloomberg was asked about the idea of applying hard science to public policy. In his answer, he brought up Chief Medical Examiner Charles Hirsch's recent conclusion that retired police detective James Zadroga's fatal lung disease was caused not by dust from the collapse of the World Trade Center but by self-administered injections of ground-up pills.

"Nobody wanted to hear that; we wanted to have a hero, and there are plenty of heroes,"
Bloomberg said. "It's just, in this case, science says this was not a hero."
