Turns Out Those Government Assurances
weren't to be trusted.

One of the first responders to the attack on the World Trade Center in 2001 has died of respiratory failure. Detective James Zadroga spent more than 500 hours in the rubble of the World Trade Center.

He died in January.

Det. Zadroga is the first person whose cause of death was ruled to be directly connected to the destruction of the World Trade Center. He died from breathing in the toxic environment of lower Manhattan in the weeks immediately following the terror attacks. The EPA repeatedly said the air was clean; this assertion obviously flies in the face of the reality of all the concrete and glass dust, mercury from computers, vaporized metal, and any of the strange things that were atomized and sent into the air.

It wasn't safe there, and I find it hard to believe that Zadroga is the only person to die from his or her exposure.

Just another thing to file in the category of government lies and evasions meant to falsely assure the public, and to make the Government seem more competent and powerful than they actually are.

Here's the story.
