The 9/11 memorial museum opened today.
The President's remarks are so offensive and wrong-headed, it's hard to believe a sitting American President said them.
"It's an honour to join in your memories, to recall and to reflect, but
above all to reaffirm the true spirit of 9/11 — love, compassion,
sacrifice — and to enshrine it forever in the heart of our nation," he
told an audience of victims' relatives, survivors, and rescuers at the
ground zero museum's dedication ceremony."
The true spirit of 9/11 was the jihad that brought the towers down and killed more Americans on American soil in a terrorist attack than any other before it.
The true lesson of 9/11 should be eternal vigilance and a commitment to America's security-a far cry from the appeasement policies of President Obama.
He calls Ground Zero "a sacred place of healing and of hope".
It is sacred ground, but no place of healing. Nothing heals those wounds. That is a pitiful, trite platitude.
It is not a place of "hope". How wrong. How patronizing.
Just a disgrace.
