Bin Laden Photo Release: We Are Damned if They Do, Damned if They Don’t

The Bin Laden saga continues.

Almost one year ago exactly, Obama came onto live TV late at night to announce that Usama bin Laden was killed in Pakistan raid by US Marines.

Nor Cal Truth covered the story from the day it happened.

I still don’t understand why we were told that dumping the body was in tradition with Islamic law. I also don’t understand why there were so many versions of events out in those early days. Sure, the basic story stayed the same; Pakistan, bin Laden, Marines, raid, 9/11 – but details of shoot-outs (or not), female hostages (or not), an armed bin Laden (or not), who could see what and when (or not) at the White House and other tidbits of info were flipping like a coin at a football game.

Remember when US Senators fell for a faked dead bin Laden photo?

On the matter of a dead Usama bin Laden, many people in the US and the world were unimpressed and even critical of Obama for not showing any photos of the newly deceased bin Laden.

Freedom of Information Act requests were filed by major Media and lawsuits from other groups were put in motion to gain access to the dead bin Laden pics. Unfortunately, information is not free or available in many cases with our Government – even with legal requests ( no matter what Obama has promised in the past).

Obama and team did not release the photos.

Why not?

Dear Keith Olbermann: Let 9/11 Truth Have it’s Deserved Airtime

November 25, 2010

Nor Cal Truth   Nov 25, 2010

Keith Olbermann had to take a shot at people who question the official 9/11 account, even if just a little bit.

Olbermann has called for Roger Ailes to fire Judge Andrew Napolitano for his 9/11 “truth” related comments made during a radio interview. All of that follows the Geraldo episode featuring mechanical engineer Tony Szamboti and 9/11 family member Bob McIlvaine discussing the curious nature of  the WTC #7 collaspe.

Below is the Alex Jones show that features Andrew Napolitano (begins at 3:50):

Judge Approves Settlement for 9/11 First Responders

source: CNN    June 24, 2010

A U.S. district judge in New York approved a settlement Wednesday that could pay more than $700 million to thousands of 9/11 first responders exposed to toxic dust at ground zero.

Before approving the settlement Judge Alvin Hellerstein listened to testimony from a sampling of some of the 10,000 plaintiffs at Wednesday’s hearing about the health battles that have plagued them since working at the World Trade Center site.

“I intend to approve this settlement, and I now do so as a fair, adequate and reasonable settlement reflecting hard work and a concern for fairness by all parties,” said Hellerstein.

Conflict Between 9/11 Settlements for First Responders. Congress or Court?

June 20, 2010

source: Insurance Journal  June 20, 2010

Thousands of 9/11 rescue and recovery workers suing New York City over their exposure to clouds of pulverized glass and cement at the World Trade Center site have to decide whether they have more faith in their lawyers or Congress.

Some workers offered a share of a new settlement worth up to $713 million Thursday might be tempted to hold out for a potentially more lucrative option — a federal bill that could pay billions to people who die or become disabled because of illnesses caused by trade center ash.

The legislation has been stalled for years. But the choice could prove difficult for former police officer Glen Klein, one of more than 10,000 cops, firefighters and construction workers with pending lawsuits.

9/11 Victims Families and 9/11 Financing Suit Judge at Odds

June 14, 2010

Nor Cal Truth    June 14, 2010

A legal case for 9/11 families that is not related to the case before Judge Hellerstein has either come close to resolution, or the judge may be replaced soon. From the New York Times:

Lawyers for families of 9/11 victims have taken the unusual legal step of asking a federal appeals court in Manhattan to replace a judge overseeing a group of terrorism-financing lawsuits, saying he is moving too slowly in resolving key motions.

The judge, George B. Daniels of Federal District Court in Manhattan, has yet to rule on almost 100 motions by defendants to dismiss the case, the lawyers said in a petition to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

The lawsuits before Judge Daniels seek to hold charities, financial institutions and other defendants responsible for providing money and other support to Al Qaeda and for the 9/11 attacks. The suits were originally consolidated before another judge, Richard Conway Casey; after Judge Casey’s death in 2007, the case was transferred to Judge Daniels.

New Legal Settlement for Sick and Dying Ground Zero First Responders

June 13, 2010

source: New York Times   June 13, 2010

Lawyers for the city and about 10,000 rescue and cleanup workers who say their health was damaged at ground zero announced Thursday that they had negotiated a new, $712 million settlement to replace one that a federal judge rejected three months ago.

The new pact drew a vigorous endorsement from the judge, Alvin K. Hellerstein of United States District Court in Manhattan, who had said the previous one, amounting to $657 million, was too small.

Heeding another complaint from the judge, lawyers for the workers agreed to reduce their fees to one-quarter of the total payout rather than the one-third called for in the lawyers’ original agreement with their clients.

Judge Hellerstein, who has emerged as a passionate advocate for firefighters, police officers and other workers and volunteers who have suffered ailments they attribute to the toxic debris of the World Trade Center, had stunned and angered lawyers for both sides when he unilaterally rejected the first deal on March 19.
