White House Kills Its First Ground Zero Victim

Don't let anyone blame terrorists for the death of police detective James Zadroga. Like the soldiers dying in Iraq, he's a victim of the irresponsible, delusional -- hell, pathological Bush Administration.

A coroner's report released Tuesday found James Zadroga's death after developing respiratory disease was "directly related" to the 2001 attack on the World Trade Center.


Zadroga's family and union released his autopsy results, the first known medical ruling positively linking a death to recovery work at ground zero.

A week after the attack, the EPA announced that the air near ground zero was safe to breathe, but the agency did not have enough information to make such a guarantee, the inspector general's report said.

The White House "convinced EPA to add reassuring statements and delete cautionary ones" by having the National Security Council control EPA communications, the inspector general's report found.

Why? To save a few nickels on respirators and particle masks?

What is the particular pathology that leads them to tell us that highly dangerous carcinogens are actually good for us; to go shopping in response to a terrorist attack; to fool us into a war no matter what NOC had to be betrayed; to hide science that contradicts their religious beliefs or hurts their pocketbooks; to lie to our faces when we know the truth?
