9/11 Memorial Gone to Hell

Screw this:

Relatives representing 14 family groups rallied at the site Monday to condemn plans for the International Freedom Center, which officials said would place the 2001 terror attacks in a historical context.

According to the International Freedom Center's Web site, the museum will "deal with the international impact of September 11," as well as such issues as segregation in America and the Holocaust.

"It doesn't belong at a memorial," said Charles Wolf, whose wife, Katherine, died in the World Trade Center collapse. "You wouldn't put a debate about Nazism and authoritarianism at Dachau."

Center President Richard J. Tofel said that while the causes of the Sept. 11 attacks would not be up for debate, the center would not bar criticism of the United States and its actions.

"Part of the way we celebrate freedom is to acknowledge that even the greatest societies in the world and those that have made the greatest contribution to freedom are not perfect," he said.
What the hell is all this nonsense about? The center won't bar criticism of the United States? The United States did nothing to cause the 9/11 attacks, a bunch of dirty Islamic terrorists did.

Segregation and the Holocaust have nothing to do with what happened. In case anyone forgot, Jews and blacks are not second-class citizens in this country. They along with whites were murdered on 9/11 in the most integrated of fashions.

We weren't attacked because we "are not perfect," we were attacked because we are the greatest country in the world and the envy of third-world cavemen.
