It’s Interesting when reading this report, I remember when it first broke and remember hearing Christie Todd Whitman head of the EPA standing in front of TV cameras dismissing the claims that, do to all the asbestos Insulation in the Twin Towers it made the air extremely toxic to breathe. The Government continued to deny the claim and The People continued to battle them in court for over 8 years, sence then hundreds of first responders have died from lung cancer and thousands more suffer and will likely die from that toxic air. The total death toll of 9/11 could rise well over 5,000 by 2012. I have one question…Why do you think the Government tried to cover up the fact that the air was extremely toxic to breathe instead of just saying “yea the air is toxic, here are masks that can stop the dust from entering your lungs, now continue on”? Why try and cover it up?

The $650 million dollar payout in the 9/11 toxic dust settlement serves as a stark reminder amidst an attempted establishment purge of any questions surrounding what happened on September 11, that the government did indeed conspire to lie about 9/11 in the immediate aftermath of the attack.
“Rescue and recovery workers who were exposed to a toxic brew of smoke and dust in the aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks have been awarded $650 million in a compensation deal struck in New York,” reports the London Times.
“Thousands of 9/11 heroes, including firefighters, police officers, construction experts and emergency workers, have filed lawsuits since 2003 but last night’s agreement is expected to put an end to years of legal battles.”
As 9/11 truth organizations have constantly emphasized as part of their efforts to aid 9/11 first responders, it was a government lie about 9/11 in the very days after the tragedy that set in motion an 8 and half year legal battle to obtain justice for the heroes of that fateful day.
Five days after the 9/11 attack, Christie Todd Whitman, then head of the Environmental Protection Agency, told reporters, “The good news continues to be that air samples we have taken have all been at levels that cause no concern.”
However, the EPA’s own Office of the Inspector General later revealed that this was an outright lie. In August 2003 it was revealed that the government ordered the EPA to give the public misleading information, telling New Yorkers on September 12 it was safe to breathe when reliable information on air quality was not available and Asbestos levels were known to be three times higher than national standards.
- Whitman Misled Public About Ground Zero Air Quality
3 February 2006 — NEW YORK _ A federal judge on Thursday blasted former Environmental Protection Agency head Christine Todd Whitman for telling residents and workers in lower Manhattan that the air was safe to breathe immediately following the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
“Whitman’s deliberate and misleading statements to the press, where she reassured the public that the air was safe to breathe around lower Manhattan and Brooklyn, and that there would be no health risk presented to those returning to those areas, shocks the conscience,” Manhattan Federal Judge Deborah Batts wrote.
- EPA Misled Public About 9/11 Pollution
August 23, 2003 — NEW YORK — In the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center, the White House instructed the Environmental Protection Agency to give the public misleading information, telling New Yorkers it was safe to breathe when reliable information on air quality was not available.
That finding is included in a report released Friday by the Office of the Inspector General of the EPA. It noted that some of the agency’s news releases in the weeks after the attack were softened before being released to the public: Reassuring information was added, while cautionary information was deleted.
