Pentagon: Some 9/11 victims’ remains dumped in landfill

ed note–the idea that the USGOV cares little to nothing about the American people is a GIVEN. ONe need do no more than look at what has been done to Americans as a result of the toxic relationship with Israel as proof of this.

HOWEVER, the REAL QUESTION that needs to be asked is whether or not there was something about the bodies of 9/11 victims that was ‘problematic’ in the sense that possibly there was some type of physical evidence associated with them that could be used in proving that the 9/11 narrative was a fraud. For example–if–as some have theorized–that the buildings were broguht down through controlled demolition using thermite or some other material, if these bodies contained trace amounts of this compound, it could be used to bolster the theories concerning Larry Silverstein and Israeli foreknowledge/planning of the event.

WASHINGTON — Some cremated remains of people who were killed in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks were disposed of in a landfill, the Pentagon revealed Tuesday, tracing the problems with the handling of remains at Dover Air Force Base back more than a decade.

A report by a panel that was tasked with reviewing procedures at Dover described “gross mismanagement” at the mortuary in Delaware where the nation’s war dead arrive, including the mishandling of remains from an unknown number of victims of the 9/11 attacks on the Pentagon and hijacked United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed in Shanksville, Pa.

Remains that couldn’t be identified or tested were cremated, the report said, and “then placed in sealed containers that were provided to a biomedical waste disposal contractor.” Asked to provide further details, retired Gen. John Abizaid, who led the panel, testily said, “You’ll have to ask the question elsewhere.”

The panel was formed after revelations last fall that similar practices had been followed for some of the unidentified remains of American war dead. Pentagon officials said Tuesday’s report was the first time they’d learned of the improper disposal of the remains of 9/11 victims.

The U.S. military has said the handling of its war dead is a sacred responsibility, but the panel’s report found that Pentagon leadership “failed to recognize and address repeated issues that violated the standard of care.” It made 20 recommendations for improving practices at Dover, including more training for mortuary workers and appointing a general to be responsible for it.

The report detailed several cases of mishandled remains or personal effects at the base. In 2006, the partial remains of four Navy personnel who’d died in a training plane crash were cremated and disposed of in a landfill. In January 2008, a Marine’s widow received a $25,000 payout for “mental anguish” when her husband’s personal effects were disposed of accidentally.

The panel also recommended that the military no longer perform full-body cremations. “We think that it’s a bad idea for the Department of Defense to be in the cremation business,” Abizaid said.

Since Sept. 11, 2001, the bodies of at least 6,000 fallen troops from Iraq and Afghanistan have been transported to Dover Air Force Base.

Investigations into Dover began after whistleblowers reported the mishandling of the remains of troops who’d been killed in the wars. The Air Force conducted an 18-month probe, concluding last fall that the partial remains of 274 service members had been incinerated and disposed of in a landfill from 2003 to 2008, when the Air Force said it had made reforms.

Last year, an investigation by the Office of Special Counsel, an independent federal investigative and prosecutorial agency, found “a pattern of the Air Force’s failure to acknowledge culpability” for mishandled and lost remains. Earlier this year, a second Office of Special Counsel report revealed that some mortuary employees had retaliated against whistleblowers by suspending them from work.

After the Air Force and Office of Special Counsel findings, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta appointed Abizaid to lead the independent review.

Panetta, Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, who’s the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the senior leadership of the Army and Air Force were briefed about the report Monday, officials said. Panetta ordered Dempsey to implement Abizaid’s recommendations.

The Pentagon has disciplined three senior officials so far. Tuesday’s report didn’t say whether further disciplinary action was necessary, and no top officials signaled that more penalties were coming.

    One big problem – and there are many – with this report is that no jumbo jet hit the pentagon, and the hole in shankesville was certainly not caused by a jumbo jet, either

    Listen tight, clown. It has been scientifically PROVEN thermite and nanothermate brought down these buildings. If you bothered to get out there and consult builders not willing to lie to cover their asses, you could get personal testimony. THE LABS HAVE PROVED THE USE OF THERMITE, NANOTHERMATE(superthermate) AND AT LEAST ONE NUCLEAR DEVICE BROUGHT DOWN THE WTCs..THERE IS NO COGENT ARGUMENT TO BE MADE AGAINST THIS. I AND THOUSANDS OF OTHERS IN THE CONSTRUCTION BUSINESS KNOW. IT WAS PUBLISHED BACK IN THE LATE 1960s. OF COURSE THEY STOPPED AT THE SEARS(Willis) TOWER BY POPULAR DEMAND. The question now is, considering the extremely slipshod design and construction with a huge number of Big Apple maggot glossed over building and fire code violations, did they unknowingly build it to be intentionally destroyed for another reason later. There are many ambitious websites covering 9-11. NONE of them interviewed builders and published the results. NONE of them. Just one brief set of speeches by an obviously caught flt footed top management board where no follow-up was done.

    The Port Authority had condemned the WTCs I and II because the exterior panels were falling off. The tenants were also moving out and there were no fibreoptic cables installed for computer communications. Losses to the Port Authority were ovwr $12 million per year.

    You could have picked a better topic to write about. I didn’t see you volunteering with the survivor ID process. Otherwise, you would still be there. Dig at the swine who retriggered the WTCs I and II with nanothermate, before they die of old age.

    My theory is that the towers were brought down to test a new weapon. I have no scientific or engineering background, but this at least makes a little sense.

    Shanksville – what the hell was that? A huge hole in the ground, no plane parts, and I’m told some body pieces (arms, hands ) miles away. Not your ordinary plane crash. Was there even a plane?

    Poor western Pennsylvania, we’re the poor relatives to Philly, etc. We’re the food stamp cousins, we have nothing, no liberty Bell; only Punxatawny Phil and the shrine at Shanksville.

    ruby22shoes, I agree, your answer makes the most sense, unless you read the Talmud and the history of England and treachery by the British empire against ALL other entities and God and earth itself. Once you learn those things and study what the pros say and listen to me, there is no question. Merely trying to get the bull out of the china shop while minimizing damage is enough. I’m serious about what they did, supposedly for the Port Authorities of Chicago and the Big Apple , which gives us a clue about ‘Port Authority jurisdiction, Maritime Law, and the Rothschild bank. at the time and the insurance companies surrounding the WTCs and the Chicago Sears tower.
    documentation can be found in LIBRARIES. old journals from the 1rom the late 1960s and 1970.
    I have had loudmouth arrogant people like Ryan Dawson and the chimp down the street and others throw their feces at me since 1969 for saying this outloud. They feel entitled because they still believe their motter’s four big lies that she said every time they came home upset. These are(my mother said them too.) You are safe, perfect, pretty(or handsome) and smart
    Wars are thought up by people called ‘wankers’ or CJs, and tend to have plans or plots thought up by a few like a witch’s coven.
    Dawson may get a bit loud, but he has collected an epic number of 9-11 related video newscasts, articles and interviews. I was nearby when they did it. It was a relief to see someone retriggered the preset with a newer nanothermate. The buildings would not have fallen over.

    I felt anger at ‘Al Qaida’ and it took just a few months to remember the preset. In one week, my contact with a military career, retired informed me it was Israel that did it. See From then you can believe Bush and company lied and murdered.. My father bailed just after hearing about the preset in 1969. Close family friends continued but all died before 9-11-2001. Dad and I knew this would go bad. The practice of preloading demolitions was outlawed just after the Sears tower became the last skyscraper over 50 stories built in America. The WTCs I and II were retriggered, probably. Dr. Harrit’s analysis analyzes a few types of nanothermate and thermite and thermate used. The nukes are covered elsewhere in competent accurate laboratory reports and treaty applications. This is all very sad. More people should have talked. I have been on it since 2001. After they started murdering witnesses, I have been on alert and promise you I am in a profession where I must be on alert 24/7. I seek a new investigation now, but congress, with a 5% approval, is still prancing and mewling for money from the traitorous CFRtv. I would like to see the U.S. Marine Corps use most all of them for hand-to-hand combat training, or worse. They are the most overpaid swine on the planet next to the president and the British royals now in debt 10XGDP.

    when the US government, and military, indulge in mass murder, with fallout in the form of war dead Americans, plus US victims of false flag attacks, and deaths of US citizens at the hands of “security” forces, it must, eventually, be overwhelming. such a massive problem of disposal and cover-up, from the debris at ground zero, to the victims..
