Cruise Sparks Outrage With 9/11 Rant
Tom Cruise has sparked outrage in the U.S. after accusing government officials of lying to the public in the aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks. In new video footage promoting Scientology, the actor blasts the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for endangering the health of emergency service staff at ground zero. He says, "The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) came out and said the air was clean. Of course as a Scientologist you go, 'That's a lie.' You just go, 'Liar.' "Finally you say, dammit, just go there and do it. Put it there, let's go, here's the money, let's go. Let's just get one person treated. I can't sleep another night." The Mission Impossible star provided emergency service staff with detoxification therapy based upon the works of Scientology found L. Ron Hubbard following the attack in 2001. But Dr Kerry Kelly, the senior medical officer for the New York Fire Department, says, "It's hard to have faith in it (Scientology rehabilitation therapy). You just stay there until you feel fine."
