WTC Memorial Gets the Attention of Congress

The World Trade Center Memorial controversy has received the attention of Congress. Powerline posted a letter from several Members of Congress to the IFC. Its worth reading.

The words of the three New York Members of Congress signing the letter indicate that the memorial needs to be about the events of 9/11 and what happened on that piece of real estate--and nothing more. And they further indicate that these folks have about a week to figure out what they are going to do (i.e. eliminate everything unrelated to 9/11). Interestingly, there is much talk about just how this is being funded, federal dollars, etc. And the letter indicates that if the IFC folks can't or won't get their act together, these Congressmen, "will be forced to seek appropriate legislative actions and remedies to redress the situation". Say goodbye to the Federal cash.

The funny thing is that those of us who favor an apolitical monument are asking that NO viewpoints be expressed. It is history we want not viewpoint. But the people planning this monument can't get past the idea that their viewpoint needs to be permanently expressed at our expense, because they are here to "enlighten" us. Leftist arrogance.

Lastly, if you haven't visited the Take Back the Memorial site, please do. Links are to the left.
