Who’s To Blame For ’93 World Trade Center Bombing?
Still, we think it is inappropriate to sue the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey for the bombing. To sue the Port Authority, is to sue the citizens of these two states. You see, we haven’t forgotten who was responsible for the ’93 attack - Islamo-fascist terrorists. The very same group that perpetrated 9/11.
The blame for the deaths and injuries from the first attack should not be shifted from the terrorists to the people of New York and New Jersey. We would hate to learn, after a trial, that a judge or jury has found the Port Authority liable for the 1993 tragedy. Let’s keep the blame where it belongs – on the terrorists.
We have special victim’s compensation funds in both states; let those harmed by the 1993 attack be helped through these programs. If the programs’ funds or benefits are inadequate to meet the actual needs, then let’s fund a special compensation program for these people. The procedures used to determine qualification and compensation for the 9/11 victims could used for this program. Lawyers won’t get rich, the victims will be helped and our citizens won’t be blamed.
We bring this up because of the following in the New York Times:
A trial to determine whether the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey should be held liable in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing could begin as early as April. More than 100 people and companies have filed suit against the authority, claiming it should be liable because it was warned to close its underground parking garage to the public.
