The title sounds a bit sensational, but it isn’t click bait.
I first heard about it, when a friend posted this notice on twitter:
Upon reading this, my eyes zeroed in on the line “Fresh Kills” site. Immediately, I started to ask the obvious questions:
Does the FBI refer to the WTC as the Fresh Kills Site? Why is this guy dead now (2018)? How could they be so obvious about it?
I wanted to know more.
With some investigating, things started to become a little clearer…
The Fresh Kills Landfill was opened 1948, on Staten Island. It served the surrounding areas for decades, until it’s closing in March 2001.
Then it was re-opened after September 11, 2001. The Fresh Kills Landfill was to be used as a sorting site for the rubble of the World Trade Center Debris.
In my opinion, this is where the story becomes interesting.
Regarding the death notice of the FBI agent, his story makes perfect sense. He was one of the agents that picked through the rubble at the site. As you read through the article below, you will see that this had become a hazardous undertaking. Many of the people involved in the “sorting” had later become ill from the toxins and debris they had ingested.
I find this article noteworthy on MANY levels. Those interested in 911, will find that there are valuable little “side facts” tucked within. There are some statistics that we never heard before and some events that the news never reported on.
Also…the whole thing is so heartbreaking.
So why did I bother to post this article?
I found the name of the landfill profoundly disturbing. I still find it suspiciously convenient that the landfill closed a few short months before it was needed to support the WTC debris. I understand it would be impossible to sort out the remains of incinerated human remains from this rubble, but the thought of those remains becoming paving material seems disrespectful and macabre.
Regarding the NYT article…While interesting, it left me with more questions, than answers.
This was an interesting submission from someone who wished to remain anonymous:
What do you think? I am interested if anyone reading this has any information to add.
