Why is everyone acting so surprised by this?

I thought we already knew that Ghouliani and Bush (through Bush's lackey, Christie Todd Whitman) conspired to reopen the area surrounding Ground Zero well before it was safe to do so. Anyone within miles of the site could tell you that air was toxic.

CBS 2 News has obtained documents revealing that Lower Manhattan was reopened a few weeks following the attack even though the air was not safe.

The two devastating memos, written by the U.S. and local governments, show they knew. They knew the toxic soup created at Ground Zero was a deadly health hazard. Yet they sent workers into the pit and people back into their homes.


Well, duh. Business trumps the health of a city's population, morons. Chest-beating BUsh had to prove to Osama bin Forgotten that it was bidness as usual in the Great White West. Wall Street had to reopen. So hundreds of rescue workers die from various respiratory diseases and cancers. So entire populations surrounding the site are stricken for life with asthma or other ailments. Bush's cronies needed their monetary fix.

The Bush Administration (Ms. Whitman included) should be forced to inhale that poisonous mix of dioxins and other carcinogens for a year straight. Fucking duplicitious bastards.
