Final resting place of 9/11 victims: a landfill

Final resting place of 9/11 victims: a landfill

Clean Media Correspondent 

Washington: Feb 29: (CMC)  The Pentagon revealed today that partial, incinerated remains of some September 11 victims that could not be identified were sent to a landfill. 
The number of victims involved was unclear according to a Pentagon report, but it involved some of those killed when a terrorist-hijacked airplane struck the Pentagon, killing 184, and another crashed in a field in Pennsylvania, killing 40, in the September 11, 2001, attacks against the US. 

The Pentagon released the report by an independent committee that was asked to examine practices at the military's mortuary at Dover, Delaware, the first stopping point for fallen troops coming home from war overseas. 
"We don't think it should have happened," the committee chairman, retired Gen. John Abizaid, told a Pentagon news conference.
