Nearly 18 years after the attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York, a battle is being waged to replenish the fund to support emergency responders and their families.

The existing $7.5 billion fund is in danger of running out of money and there are still some 19,000 unpaid claims. Many of those who worked at Ground Zero in the days and months following the September 11 attacks have developed serious or terminal illnesses due to the toxic chemicals they were exposed to.

John Feal was a 9/11 responder who was injured at Ground Zero and has set up the FealGood Foundation to help those who went to help others in the aftermath of the attacks.

Of the tens of thousands of first responders who worked at Ground Zero, more than 32,000 have since developed respiratory or digestive diseases, more than 700 have died of these. Cancer has affected almost 9,000 people and 600 of them have died. Feal has lost a number of close friends.

“This is now going to last a generation until the very last 9/11 responder that passes away.”

The FealGood Foundation also fights for volunteers who were at Ground Zero, for the people who lived in lower Manhattan, the children in the geographic impact zone and people who worked at the Pentagon. There’s 90,000 people in the World Trade Centre health programme across the US.

“The weight of the world is on our shoulders.”

Feal recently met with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to push him to get the September 11 Victims’ Fund renewed.

“On 11 September, 2001, people were told the air was safe to breathe and the water safe to drink, says Feal. “We’re fighting the very people who lied to us for legislation for their lie.”

Compensation was granted in 2015, but only for five years and Feal says he knew that it wouldn’t last until 2020. He says now the fund is running out of money and there’s more than 19,000 people who have to wait to be compensated, with another 20,000 people expected to come forward in the next few years as more and more people are diagnosed.

“We’re truly racing the clock but while we’re still going to get this done, it doesn’t save anybody’s life anymore.”

we ate there, we worked there, we slept there, we cried there, we went to the bathroom there…we did everything there 24/7
What it does do is offer the comfort and relief of financial assistance when people lose loved ones, he says

Feal says the government’s first responsibility is to serve and protect its people and if it cannot do that it shouldn’t be in a position of power.

He describes the cancers that people in the 9/11 community get as “being on steroids”. He says brain cancer usually gives someone a life expectancy of 7-10 years, but for this community it’s a year and a half.

“I know people who have been diagnosed with cancer and died 2 weeks later, they were supposed to die 2 years later.

“What we’re seeing now is that 18 years later they already have a compromised immune system, their body’s not working at 100 percent because the toxins have already crushed their insides, then these cancers pop up and it just destroys them immediately. The absorption through the nose, mouth and skin, has literally killed these men and women, we ate there, we worked there, we slept there, we cried there, we went to the bathroom there…we did everything there 24/7.”

Feal lost his foot while working at Ground Zero.

“I don’t have cancer yet, but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to get cancer.”

By 2025, 30,000 people will have cancer because of 9/11, he says.

At first they were begging officials for change, now Feal says, they shame them.

“I think the elected officials in New York City, New York State and D.C know we’re not playing games anymore, they work for us.”

Fund only has $2.4bn to pay 19,000 claims, plus thousands more expected to file before it closes at the end of 2020.

Sick first responders and survivors of the 9/11 terrorist attacks will see payments slashed dramatically as the fund to compensate them runs out of money, officials said Friday. The fund was created to aid people sickened by exposure to toxins at the sites of deadly attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in 2001, and the families of those who have died.

By Kristen Breitweiser, one of the four 9/11 widows – known as the “Jersey Girls” – instrumental in forcing the government to form the 9/11 Commission to investigate the 2001 attacks. Follow Kristen Breitweiser on Twitter: www.twitter.com/kdbreitweiser.

Road to Damascus Conversion: Derived from the Biblical story of Paul, the term “Damascus road conversion” is commonly used to refer to an abrupt about-face on a serious issue of religion, politics or philosophy. In this type of change, a single, dramatic event causes a person to become aligned with something he or she previously was against or support a position that he or she previously opposed. https://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-a-damascus-road-conversion.htm#didyouknowout
As a 9/11 widow who has spent the last 17 years fighting for accountability with regard to the 9/11 attacks that killed my husband and 3,000 others, I find the recent uproar over Jamal Khashoggi’s disappearance and alleged murder interesting and out of character for many of those decrying his disappearance and demanding an investigation and accountability.

Frankly, 9/11 Family members keep a running list of all those in Washington who have proved by their past actions to be against U.S. victims of terrorism and in support of nations like the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, a nation with a long history of supporting global Wahhabist terrorism. As victims of terrorism, we are ever vigilant and watchful about all those named on our lists. We follow these folks actions, their speeches, their legislation, because we know that they are never looking out for our best interests as U.S. victims of terrorism. As a group, our institutional memory is broad and long. And we never forget.

That’s why we all happened to notice the uncharacteristic behavior of so many of those on our lists with the advent of Jamal Khasoggi’s disappearance. And it made us wonder why so many people, who had previously always blindly supported the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, were now so vociferously jumping Saudi ship.

What had caused this Road to Damascus conversion?

Take for example those who fought against the release of The 28 Pages of the Joint Inquiry of Congress(JICI) that detailed the Saudi role in the 9/11 attacks for fear that The 28 Pages public release might harm the Saudi’s reputation and its very special relationship with the United States. A relationship, in large part, based on oil, weapons, money, and shared intelligence operations—things that have little to do with keeping American citizens safe. https://www.hsdl.org/?view&did=27164
Regarding The 28 Pages, CIA Director, John Brennan once said, “releasing a classified section of the congressional investigation into the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States would be a mistake. A reason to keep them under wraps is they contain “unvetted information” that some could use to unfairly implicate Saudi Arabia in the terror attacks.” https://thehill.com/policy/national-security/278313-cia-director-28-pages-contains-inaccurate-information

Yesterday morning, attorneys from the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, together with more than a dozen family members of 9/11 victims, filed a petition with the interim U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Geoffrey S. Berman, demanding that he present evidence of unprosecuted federal crimes at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, to a special grand jury.

According to the 52-page petition, which is accompanied by 57 exhibits, federal statute requires the U.S. Department of Justice to relay citizen reports of federal crimes to a special grand jury. The unprosecuted crime alleged to have taken place on 9/11 is the bombing of a place of public use or a government facility — as prohibited under the federal bombing statute or 18 U.S.C. § 2332f — as well as a conspiracy to commit, or the aiding and abetting of, said offense.

The petition states, “The Lawyers’ Committee has reviewed the relevant available evidence . . . and has reached a consensus that there is not just substantial or persuasive evidence of yet-to-be-prosecuted crimes related to the use of pre-planted explosives and/or incendiaries . . . on 9/11, but there is actually conclusive evidence that such federal crimes were committed.”

Hidden in the fine print of President Trump’s latest budget proposal is a detail that could directly impact 9/11 first responders: The reorganization of the federal agency that oversees their health treatment and monitoring.

Currently, the World Trade Center Health Program is housed within the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. That agency, in turn, is under the umbrella of the Centers for Disease Control.

Under the 2019 fiscal year budget for NIOSH put forth by the White House, that agency will be carved out of the CDC and placed within the National Institute of Health.

The WTC Health Program will remain behind — within the CDC.

Although it would appear on paper to be a simple rearrangement, lawmakers and 9/11 advocates say the impact would be dreadful for the more than 83,000 responders and survivors who rely on the WTC Health Program to receive treatments, medications and monitoring for injuries and illnesses caused by toxins at Ground Zero and other 9/11 sites.

The Bobby McIlvaine World Trade Center Investigation Act is draft legislation that would establish a Select Committee in either chamber of Congress to reinvestigate the destruction of the three World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001.

The Act is named after Bobby McIlvaine, who was tragically killed at the age of 26 while entering the North Tower of the World Trade Center and whose father, Bob, has been an outspoken leader in advocating for a new investigation.

Mr. McIlvaine and Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth call on everyone who supports a new investigation to contact your members of Congress and urge them to introduce the Act. You can contact your members of Congress through our website at http://AE911Truth.org/Justice or directly on your own.

Contact information for your members of Congress can be found at https://www.usa.gov/elected-officials.
