To All,



Almost a year ago we posted the pieces below.



At that time over $200 Million had been spent on lawyers fighting health claims related to 9/11.



Also at the time Judge Hellerstein said he was going to step up efforts in settling claims.



So here we are almost a year later and we are no better off.



And we still canít get a full accountability from the WTC Captive Insurance Company so we donít know how many more millions have been spent on lawyers and salaries or on bad investments.



Most of our investigation was prompted by the reporting of Sue Edelman of the NY Post who seems to be one of the few reporters that feels the plight of 9/11 victims is important enough to report on days other than 9/11.



We apologize because we actually thought that we could take the word of those in power a truth at least in this circumstance.



Again we were wrong.



There was a small article in todayís Post once again by Sue.



In it she reminds us that Kenneth Feinberg has already volunteered to oversee these cases as he did the Victimís Compensation Fund.



Although we had our problems with Mr. Feinberg at the beginning we found that overall he did a very good job under almost unworkable conditions.



In my meetings with Mr. Feinberg he was open to at least listen and I do believe he did the best he could for the victimís families.



It is time to ask him to do the same and take over and mediate the settlements in these 9/11 health related cases.



It is also time for a complete independent audit of the WTC Captive Insurance Company.



Enough is enough.



The longer we delay the more people die.



This does not have to be.



Since we cannot get anywhere with the mayor and this is federal money we need our Senators and Representatives to step up and get this done.



They need to hear from you.



They need to hear from you today.
