Beginning in July, those police, fire, construction and other personnel who responded to the Sept. 11, 2001, destruction of the World Trade Towers in New York and contracted medical conditions related to the event will have to be checked off against an FBI known-terrorist list in order to receive continued treatment. It's the law.
I think if I had been in the World Trade Center on 9/11 and Osama Bin Laden came to help me and as a result suffered injuries requiring continuing attention -- well, I'd say thank you very much and offer him whatever aid he might require.
It's some explanation and some satisfaction -- though not much -- that a Republican came up with this idea. Where do we get these nitwits? I've got $5 that says this guy wears an American flag lapel pin without any shame whatsoever. Talk about terrorists!
