67. Ground Zero declared non-toxic

EPA chief Christie Todd Whitman declares toxic filled Ground Zero safe for cleanup. On August 9, 2003 the EPA Inspector General finds differently. In Congressional testimony June 25, 2007, Whitman states that it was not her fault and blames the terrorists for the site being toxic. On April 22, 2008, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Whitman should not be held liable for her declaration because her lie did not “shock the conscience” of the appeals panel, a finding that says more about the panel than Whitman.
