AZ 911 Commission to change memorial

From the Arizona Republic of Friday, March 2, 2007 which can be found here (but only temporarily) and which I've quoted below.

However, the only change known at this time is the removal of a blatantly false accusation against the US Air Force ...

However, notice that they don't accept that the accusation is false. This in spite of meeting, at the December 2006 AZ 911 Memorial Commission meeting, the Air Force Officer who was in command of the investigation which concluded those killed were Taliban.

I wonder if they'll do more than remove the words "erroneous" and "civilians".

No, they're going to add "introductory panels" to "explain" the abomination to us knuckledraggers since we were all too stupid to figure it out on our own.

Well, don't think that I won't be here to report it all. Just because it's been quiet does NOT mean it's over.

Sept. 11 commission votes to change state memorial

Reacting to criticism of the state's Sept. 11 memorial, a state commission decided Thursday to add introductory panels to explain the terrorist attacks and the memorial itself. It also began a review that could see at least one controversial inscription removed while others are retained.

The governor's memorial commission voted unanimously Thursday to remove an inscription regarding an "erroneous" U.S. airstrike that purportedly killed 46 Afghan civilians.

Commission members said circumstances of the U.S. airstrike are still in question. Some said the inscription prompted criticism that it impugned the United States and its military.
