Another "What Happened To This Story?"
I have the article, but unfortunately it does not show the date. Oops. It is from a column by Juan Gonzalez in the New York Daily News. The title is "Clear the air from 9/11
." It mentions how the EPA misled NYC on the air quality following the terrorist attack and the subsequent collapse of the World Trade Center.
Specifically, the article mentions that the Inspector General of the EPA revealed that White House officials rewrote EPA news releases to minimize health dangers. The question is: is this true? If so, why do these things appear only as a flash in the pan instead of being followed up on and remedies obtained.
Hey, Martha is doing five months for lying to the government and Bush accused Kerry of being a flip-flopper; what about rewriting the truth?
Was any of this in the 9/11 commission report? I do think Kerry would have made a better president, but I am all for going over the records by the Press, not the Madison Avenue advertising guys.
So what is the story and where is it now? In other words, was there a bending of the truth, were corrections made, and what safeguards were put in place to prevent a reoccurrence?
