    Just in case you have missed this. It is, after all, the 5 year anniversary.

    Hey Mecha... the sheer number of firemen, policemen, paramedics, and civilians who were trapped in Ground Zero wouldn't have mattered much if the entire place was heavily radiated... these brave rescue personnel would have gone into the pit whether the government wanted them to or not. 3,000 people died and lots more tried to rescue these people!

    Can you imagine what would have happened if the City of New York blocked off Ground Zero and said nobody can enter to rescue trapped personnel?

    I question the motives of this CBS article; the terrorists are the bad guys here; they caused the problem! CBS seems to be wanting to cast the blame for this catastrophy on City Government, or Federal Government, or even other rescue personnel for attempting to re-enter the zone called "Ground Zero"... they re-entered this area to try to save lives!

    Using CBS's idealology, all of lower Manhatten should have been evacuated!

    Lastly the following quote:

    "Bruce Sprague, an E.P.A. official in the New York and New Jersey region during 9/11 admited to CBS 2 News the agency was finding alarming air quality readings at Ground Zero and in the surrounding areas."

    Los Angeles also has "alarming" air quality readings and I don't see the EPA worried a bit!!!

    You honestly think that? lol

    CBS's ideology? You don't think it could have anything to do with the air and EPA? You also say that as though evacuation and not allowing anyone in was the absolutely only option.

    Umm... thats not all the workers did. For example cleaning up the area. If the air is dangerous, one would only stay for what must be done (ie rescue operations) and protect oneself from the air contamination. However, they were falsely assured it was safe. Thus, they didn't take any precautions against the air, or anything else that common sense would dictate in an area with toxic air.

    Do you not see a problem if it was heavily irradiated, but the government told them falsely the opposite, resulting in thousands of illnesses and begining to result in deaths in the workers and people of the effected area?

    Does it not mean Bush immediately failed to protect Americans when his Administration chose to allow this? In fact, directly caused the illness and death.
