9/11 Funds Misused…What a Surprise!

July 13th, 2006

Over the past few days the papers have been filled with articles about the misuse of 9/11 funds.


I cannot see why anyone is surprised. For the past 4 years we have been demanding an investigation into the abuses. Below please find a letter sent to Eliot Spitzer on 1/30/06.

Dear Mr. Spitzer,

I am writing on behalf of some of the 9/11 victims who where denied small business recovery grants from the federal government. Many of these people have lost everything as a result of these denials while it has been reported that many blue chip corporations including Dell Inc., Morgan Stanley, the AXA Group and even Donald Trump and Larry Silverstein have allegedly qualified and received these loans. Although this is a Federal Program many of these inappropriate loans were made through New York Banks in New York City. Since it is apparent that the Federal and State Government are not going to do anything (they have been aware of this information for almost a year) I am asking your office to launch an investigation into how these loans were handled. Your office has been such a strong advocate in the fight against white collar crime that I think you are our only hope if we are going to get to the bottom of this. If these charges are legitimate either these companies misled the banks or the banks themselves awarded inappropriate loans. Either way someone needs to be held accountable and the money needs to be returned as there are still legitimate victims that have been denied this aid. Some of these victims have already lost not only their businesses but their homes as well. The real victims of 9/11 need your help in this matter as we have approached both federal and state officials and have gotten nowhere. Your attention in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely, Dennis McKeon

The latest articles are just a tip of the iceberg. Billions are still unaccounted for with TSA contracts as well as other questionable expenditures by numerous Federal State and local programs.

Please click on the link below to see numerous editorials and letters that have been sent over the past few years to our local newspapers. Not one of these have ever been printed.


As stated we have raised these issues numerous times but our concerns have gone unanswered. Hopefully something will finally be done and those who abused the process will be held accountable.

That would be a nice surprise.
