|So letís see how this works.
It appears that being an ex chief under President Bush might also get you the inside track on an $11 million one year contract to track 9/11 health related issues of people living outside New York.
Now letís follow the chain of events. This contract was awarded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention which happens to be a part of the Health and Human Services Department which just so happened to be run by Tommy Thompson during Bushís first term who also happens to be president of Logistics Health Inc which just by chance is the firm that was awarded the contract.
What a coincidence!
Unfortunately this is more the norm than the exception.
First we have the EPA Chief making a public statement assuring everyone that the air quality was fine in New York City shortly after 9/11.
Even after investigations have shown that the government knew that this statement was false Ms. Whitman was let off the hook with a judge stating that ďlegal remedies are not always available for every instance of arguably deficient governmental performanceĒ
And donít think that this only happens at the Federal level.
In New York we set up a fund that is intended to pay medical claims of 9/11 victims but to date it has only funded the exorbitant expenses of the lawyers hired to fight these claims.
And the list goes on and on.
There has yet to be an investigation into the alleged disappearance of almost $1 million in cash and thousands of pieces of 9/11 property from the NYPD Property Department.
And what ever happened to the laptop that was stolen with personal 9/11 information.
Hell did anyone ever check the past records of the company that we are paying millions to for the identification of remains at Ground Zero. Guess not and even after limited results they were awarded a contract extension.
What ever happened to competitive bidding and an open and honest process?
One just has to look at the whole Memorial process to see it was never part of the plan.
As usual itís not what you know itís who you know.
And unless we keep on asking questions and demanding answers thatís the way it will continue to be.
