Editor in Chief Bill Manning of "FIRE ENGINEERING", a respected trade journal, rips official "investigators" for tossing the evidence!
THE TAINTED BRUSH OF 9/11 POLITICS
BY BILL MANNING
In early August it was revealed by New York Newsday that New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a month before the final 9/11 Commission Report, dispatched a strong memo lobbying the Commission for language that would cast a more favorable light on the cityand, by extension, on city management, past and present. With respect to the hottest hot-button issues surrounding the 9/11 responseradio inoperability, lack of police-fire cooperation and coordination, and the city's poor excuse for a new, "integrated" incident management systemBloomberg's wish was granted. The Commission's final report coats the three issues with a layer of political honey.
City management had almost three years to circle the wagons to deflect obvious ineptitude and irresponsibility for which it could and should have been held accountable. Capitalizing on an accommodating and docile press, they've controlled critical information, dismissed many concerns of 9/11 families/survivors groups as grief-driven hysteria, and, with great cunning, used the firefighters who perished in the Towers for political cover...
Yes, he thinks there was a cover-up, but not of the type suggested on most 9/11 sites. Mannings saying its down to politicians covering up their responsibility in terms of the emergency services response to the events, the failure of firefighters radios to carry the vital evacuate order, and so on. A point worth bearing in mind, especially with sites that use the damage from the planes and the explosive ignition of jet fuel was not enough quote without any context.
