During the official investigation controlled by FEMA, one hundred fifty pieces of steel were saved for future study. 5 One hundred fifty pieces out of hundreds of thousands of pieces! Moreover it is not clear who made the decision to save these particular pieces. It is clear that the volunteer investigators were doing their work at the Fresh Kills dump, not at Ground Zero, so whatever steel they had access to was first picked over by the people running the cleanup operation.
Former Environmental Protection Agency chief and ex-governor Christine Todd Whitman apologized over her claim that the air around Ground Zero was safe in the days after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the Guardian reported Saturday.
"I'm very sorry that people are dying and if the EPA and I in any way contributed to that, I'm sorry," Whitman told the Guardian.
Days after the World Trade Center towers in lower Manhattan collapsed, covering the area in a massive plume of ash, Whitman reassured the public the air was safe.
