From Thu Sep 21, 2006 2:00 am to Sun Sep 24, 2006 1:59 am (included)
|Earlier today we received notification from the OCME that there was a possibility that new identifications might be forthcoming because of recent advances in technology. This was also covered in an AP story earlier today (see below).
While we are extremely happy with this news there are a few questions that need to be asked.
First: When were these new tests begun and were they done on all of the unidentified remains from Ground Zero?
Second: Are the remains from the Deutche Bank Building being kept separate from the other remains?
Maybe itís me but the timing of this announcement seems very odd as it seems to correspond with when the results of the tests from the Deutche Bank remains should be coming in.
Maybe I have become too cynical but I am hoping that the following scenario did not take place.
Remains found at 130 Liberty were determined to be identifiable. Knowing that these remains should have been uncovered years ago and identified they are now going to be included in newly identified remains based on new technology.
I hope I am wrong but answering the questions above would remove any doubt and also not give false hope to families.
So we ask the OCME to test the remains from the Deutche Bank Building separately. Let us know what percentage of the newly identified remains (if any) came from the Deutche Bank Building.
If all or a great percentage of the newly identified remains come from the Deutche Bank Building it would be because this was the first time they were tested not because of new technology.
Had the building been properly inspected years ago they would have been found and identified back then and the unfortunate families would not have to have waited until now to be notified.
I hope I am wrong but the questions need to be asked.
We have been misled too may times already.
