Terror-Appeasing Obama Administration Yet to Announce Plans for Anniversary of 9/11 Islamic Terrorist AttacksTopics: Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam
Every year it's a challenge for the White House: how to commemorate the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. This year is especially awkward, given the controversy around President Barack Obama's remarks in support of an Islamic cultural center and mosque planned for a neighborhood near ground zero in lower Manhattan.As Douglas aptly notes, there will indeed be lots of activity in New York on September 11, but it's questionable that many families actually want Barack Hussein Obama on hand to help his leftist friends spit on the remains of those murdered by Muslim fanatics.
The White House has not yet announced the president's plans for next week, though a source familiar with the matter was doubtful Obama would travel to New York.
But the president's options are otherwise limited: Last year, he marked the eighth anniversary of the terrorist attacks at the Pentagon, and a return appearance there seems unlikely. This year, first lady Michelle Obama and former first lady Laura Bush will travel together to Shanksville, Pa., to honor the 40 passengers and crew members who died in the crash of United Airlines Flight 93.
That leaves the former World Trade Center site in New York, where Obama hasn't been since the 2008 presidential campaign. But a presidential appearance at ground zero on Sept. 11 -- where an activist group plans to protest the Islamic center project that day -- will almost certainly reignite the political firestorm.
