Clinton Blocks EPA Nominee, Seeks Answers on 9/11 Air

Read EPA Inspector General's Report (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency)
Aug 21, 2003 (Acrobat file)

By Anne Q. Hoy
Washington Bureau

September 23, 2003, 9:36 PM EDT


Washington -- New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton Tuesday charged that the White House orchestrated a deliberate effort to mislead New Yorkers about the city's air quality after the 2001 terrorist attacks.

Clinton used a Senate hearing on the nomination of Utah Gov. Michael Leavitt to head the Environmental Protection Agency to reiterate her demand that the administration again test the air quality of residences and businesses in lower Manhattan.

She called on the White House to disclose the names of those who ordered the Environmental Protection Agency to soften public statements about the area's air quality in the wake of Sept. 11, 2001.

Clinton is blocking Leavitt's confirmation, as are two Democratic presidential contenders -- Sens. Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut and John Edwards of North Carolina, for different reasons. Clinton said she will not remove her barrier -- a move that denies him a full Senate vote -- until she gets answers and results.

The senator's ire was sparked by a report by the EPA's inspector general, issued Aug. 22, that said the White House directed the agency to recast its news releases after the collapse of the World Trade Center "to add reassuring statements and delete cautionary ones." The report said the assurances came without test results.

Only if is politically advantageous.


One thing we won't hear - what would Hillary have done following 9-11? Evacuate lower Manhattan?

Some evacuation did take place. At the time of 9/11 my youngest sister was living in Lower Manhattan (she has since moved to Brooklyn). At the time of the attack she had gone to work in Brooklyn. They didn't open the beauty shop that day due to the attack. It was six days before she was allowed to go back to her apartment in Manhattan. The air was still pretty raunchy when she went back. I'll bet this is a campaign issue.

If a Republican does this, he is concerned for national security. If a Democrat does this, she is being politically advantageous.

Nice logic.

for a period of time, yes.

at least made an honest disclosure of the risks.



It is the same thing this Admin. did with the EPA report on Global warming, taking out the parts that might affect costs of business over costs of people's health.
