Dear Christine Todd Whitman (or... "Got Lungs?")...
Advertisements [?]
Dear Christie,

Because of the actions you took in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, people are dying.

On Sept. 18, 2001, then-EPA head Whitman released a statement declaring the results from air monitoring tests in New York showed "their air is safe to breathe."

Almost two years later, the EPA's inspector general released a report concluding the EPA's assurances were based on preliminary test results. The report also said that EPA press releases were softened under pressure from the White House.

Since then, multiple studies have documented health problems amongst 9/11 emergency responders and workers. One study released last year by Mount Sinai Hospital in New York showed more than 70 percent of Ground Zero workers suffered health ailments or severe respiratory problems. -

Here's one of them, Christie, (hope you don't mind me calling you Christie), Vito Valenti. He needs new lungs, or he's gonna die, Christie.

Maybe you've heard of Vito. He was recently on the View;

He has also been on the news a bit;

I can't wait to hear your testimony to Congress, Christie;

And yes, we "insist".

For more information on the 9/11 first responders and the living hell many of them are going through, check out John Feal's website;

Feal was involved in post 9/11 clean-up and was badly injured at Ground Zero. He has since dedicated his life to helping fellow Ground Zero victims.

At least the 9/11 First Responders are getting help from somewhere.

After all, Michael Moore can't take everyone to Cuba.

Sleep tight, Christie. I know Vito won't.



P.s. By the way, Christie, what else is the Bush administration not telling us the truth about, regarding 9/11? I mean, if the health of a few thousand people ain't no biggie for Bushco, kinda makes me wonder about 3,000 or so on 9/11.


If you would like to send Vito some love, send him an email here;

But he really needs some lungs. His health is failing rapidly. If you can help, somehow, please do.
