More Good News; Someone Is Listening

Just 6 days ago I posted an article about how the hate-America crowd had hijacked the Flight 93 memorial in Pennsylvania and the Arizona memorial to 9/11; they have tried, but not yet succeeded in undermining the Ground Zero memorial in New York City. Things are happening fast. Just yesterday, this news report was issued in Arizona:

PHOENIX — A state commission that authorized placement of the Arizona 9-11 Memorial in Wesley Bolin Plaza will review controversial laser-cut inscriptions “and see if some of them could be removed,” the panel’s chairman said Wednesday.

Former state Sen. Tom Smith, chairman of the Legislative Governmental Mall Commission, also said the commission hadn’t made it a practice to review the wording of any memorials. “We sure as heck will do it in the future”, he told The Associated Press in an interview.

Also Wednesday, Gov. Janet Napolitano said she didn’t pre-approve the wording criticized by Republican gubernatorial nominee Len Munsil and others as containing ”blame America“ messages and lacking enough sentiments related to faith, unity and patriotism.

The memorial includes quotations like: ”You don’t win battles of terrorism with more battles“ and highlights chronological events such as ”Congress questions why CIA and FBI didn’t prevent attacks“ and ”Erroneous US air strike kills 46 Uruzgan (Afghanistan) civilians.“ Among the other inscriptions: ”FBI agent issued July 2001 warning in `Phoenix Memo,’“ ”Steve of Scottsdale wrote songs for brother, Robby“ and ”Violent acts leading U.S. to war, 05-07-1915, 12-07-41, 08-04-64 and 09-11-01.“ ...

Smith said Wednesday it never occurred to him during the February meeting to check on details of the inscriptions’ wording. ”We never thought anything would be inappropriate,“ he said. ”It didn’t sound like there would be anything controversial.“

Smith also said he didn’t think his commission was misled. ”No, I think we could have been naive."
