Arizona 9/11 Memorial Outrage

• Views: 1,206

Hot Air has the latest news on that Arizona 9/11 memorial that’s been infested with leftist ideology: Outrage over Arizona 9/11 memorial ready to go nuclear? Kudos to Espresso Pundit for breaking the story in the first place.

And we would be remiss if we didn’t point out that when seen from overhead, the memorial bears a marked resemblance to a crescent. Coincidence?

UPDATE at 9/24/06 9:13:19 am:

Here’s a story in Arizona’s East Valley Tribune: Sept. 11 inscriptions spark outrage.

One inscription states, “You don’t win battles of terrorism with more battles.” Another: “Congress questions why CIA and FBI didn’t prevent attacks.” And another reads, “Erroneous US air strike kills 46 Uruzgan civilians,” referring to a wedding reportedly hit by mistake in Afghanistan.

“It’s a worldview that is critical of America, and in many cases cheapens 9/11,” said Greg Patterson, a lobbyist and consultant who operates the EspressoPundit blog, where he and his readers have been critical of the memorial. “It is bent on attacking the Bush administration’s take on the war, at the expense of the memory of 9/11.”

Rep. Russell Pearce, R-Mesa, said he was stunned to learn of the inscriptions. “To politicize it to me is absolutely outrageous, instead of a memorial to remember those who have sacrificed their lives,” he said.

Tempe resident Donna Bird, whose husband Gary was killed in the attack, was among the 30-member Arizona 9/11 Memorial Commission created by former Gov. Jane Hull in 2002.

She said all the inscriptions were found factual by an Arizona State University history professor. She added that she wouldn’t have helped design the memorial, which names her husband, if it were political.
