It was announced today that there is a new President and Chairman of the Board of the LMDC.

This is interesting on many levels.

When Stefan Pryor left a few months ago we were told that the LMDC had served its purpose and was being disbanded.

Anyone involved new that this would never happen.

Too many contracts to be given.

Too many grants to be made.

Too many political favors to be paid.

So what did they do?

They operated as the LMCCC and continued business as usual.

Nothing changed.

Now they replace a few people and we are supposed to be impressed.

What would be impressive would be a complete audit of the millions expended by the LMDC since 9/11.

We have always believed that to discover the truth all you need to do is follow the money.

That’s what they should do here and maybe we would find out:

Why the current design for Ground Zero was chosen?

Why the recovery effort was deemed complete with no final report?

Why the Port Authority has called all the shots from day one at Ground Zero?

Why the site continues to be built exempt from NYC Building and Fire codes?

Why nothing was ever done to answer the Kallstrom report? (see below from 6/06 AP story)

Why are we still finding remains 5 years later?

Why is the memorial continued to be built even though it disregards at least 5 of the Mission Statement requirements?

Why aren’t the voices of family members being heard when it comes to the listing of names?

Follow the money and you would probably answer all of the above.

But that will never happen and we will never have an audit.

As Michael Fry and T. Lewis said “The more things change, the more they remain... insane.”

Put It Above Ground

James Kallstrom, a former FBI assistant director who leads a task force developing security plans for ground zero, said the entire 16-acre site is vulnerable to terrorism and he has asked for modification to enhance security.
"The whole site, particularly the memorial, particularly the sacred footprints and anything to do with the old-world World Trade Center and the tragedy has a lot of symbolism," said Kallstrom. "Whether or not terrorists decide that that's their target ... I think it would be less than professional not to recognize the symbolism here."
Gallagher said the LMDC would work to follow Kallstrom's recommendations.

The LMDC Lives!
