Washington, Jan 20 : American actor Tom Cruise has sparked outrage in the U.S, after he accused government officials of lying following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
In a new promotional video for Scientology, the actor was seen blasting the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for endangering the health of emergency service staff at ground zero.
"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'," Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
"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," he added.
Cruise is said to have provided the emergency service staff with detoxification therapy based upon the works of Scientology, following the attack in 2001.
However, Dr Kerry Kelly, a senior medical officer for the New York Fire Department, has other views regarding the Scientology therapy.
"It's hard to have faith in it (Scientology rehabilitation therapy). You just stay there until you feel fine," he said.
