Heroic 9/11 first respondents snubbed as they are denied an invitation to tenth anniversary of New York terror attacks

Daily Mail.   Hannah Roberts. 13th August 2011

Police, firemen and rescue workers who risked their lives to save the victims of 9/11 will not be invited to take part in the 10th anniversary ceremony.

Despite giving up hours, days and weeks of their time to search for survivors and clear rubble, unpaid, rescuers are to be snubbed at next month's remembrance events.

First responders will instead be asked back to the site at another day for a separate commemorative ceremony, according to officials.

Space and security logistics were at the heart of the decision, the New York Daily News reported.

The loved ones of those killed in the 2001 atrocities will receive first priority at the maximum security event.

President Obama will be the first sitting President to attend the annual remembrance, heightening security concerns.

Rescue workers were devastated by the news that their vital work is to go unrecognised at the most important commemorative ceremony so far.

David Jacobs from Queens, who volunteered at the site sifting debris, and who lost a childhood friend, a city fire-fighter, in the attacks said: 'To have a separate service on another day has no significance, no meaning.'

'For many of us, we gave a lot at that site.' he said.

As many as 91,000 people took part in the initial search and rescue and subsequent 10-month clean-up, according to estimates taken for the city.

In past years, first responders were welcomed to the annual commemoration because little or no construction had begun at the site and space was not a problem.

Politicians were also told yesterday that only a limited number would be invited. Only representatives from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut got congressional approval to attend.

House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) decided on Friday that the government would pick up the tab for representatives from just those three states.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-Manhattan) had sought to make the event open to politicians from across the country.

All lawmakers are allowed to attend the memorial in Shankesville, Pa., where the hijacked United Airlines Flight 93 eventually crashed.

Cancer

The Zionist media does not give statistics of how many first responders have developed cancers and other
ailments attributable to the W54 low yield nuclear warheads that were used to pulverise the towers.People
like the first responders are expendable to the Anglo Zionist elites that perpetrated 9/11.The elites deliberately
exposed tens of thousands of their "own" troops to radioactivity during the years of atmospheric testing and
has denied them compensation.Depleted uranium has taken it's toll in more recent times.

The US government ........

Is certainly trying to avoid the issue of the illnesses to First-Responders and clean-up crews ...........

Just like it stuffs its war veteran disabled out of the spot-light ........

Not good for politics to see the result of poor government  ............

Are you trying to get us to believe you actually care about the first responders?

lol

They are heroes in the eyes of every american.  I spent my day on sunday listening to their stories.  I didn't watch the official event - but the history channel had documentaries on all day and I watched them all.

But you?  I don't believe for one second you give a toss about these guys.
