Terrorism by Deception: "The Air is Safe to Breathe"

Typically, when we think of 9/11, we tend to think solely of the terrorist attack involving the alleged four hijacked planes. But there was another terrorist attack related to 9/11. This other "attack" was indisputably perpetrated by the government-- by deception.

The Lie
Seven days after the 9/11 attacks, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency declared to the people of New York City that "the air is safe to breathe." As it turns out, the EPA was lying. But worse, as revealed in an investigation, the White House pressured the EPA to prematurely assure the public that the air was safe to breathe. In an EPA watchdog report released in 2003, it was reported that "competing considerations, such as national security concerns and the desire to reopen Wall Street, played a role in EPA's air quality statements." (Emphasis Added.) (See, EPA Report, at page 17)

In other words, our beloved government knowingly lied to us, putting our citizens in danger, for "the desire to reopen Wall Street."

All of this is fact. (Check it out for yourself at Page 17)

If you still don't believe me, perhaps you will believe the EPA Ombudsman who investigated the matter. In February of 2003, EPA Ombudsman Robert Martin stated that the EPA intentionally utilized inferior testing methods in order to avoid finding evidence that environmental conditions threatened public health. "I believe the EPA did not do that because they knew it would come up not safe and so they are involved in providing knowingly false information to the public about safety."
