Ground Zero Or Bust?

Governor Bars Freedom Center at Ground Zero - New York Times

...Governor Pataki said he had instructed the development corporation, which is overseeing the development of the memorial and cultural buildings, to "work with the I.F.C. to explore other locations."

But 42 minutes later, the center said in its own statement that there was no other location to explore, since the memorial quadrant was "the site for which the I.F.C. was created, at the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation's request, and as an integral part of Daniel Libeskind's master site plan."

"We do not believe there is a viable alternative place for the I.F.C. at the World Trade Center site," said the statement from the center's executives, Tom A. Bernstein, Peter W. Kunhardt and Richard J. Tofel. "We consider our work, therefore, to have been brought to an end."

Moonbats surrendering? Well, they DO love the French but this giving up so easily bothers me. Does it also speak volumes about their original intent? Certainly. They wanted ground-zero or NOTHING, as the intent was to hurt America at it's most vulnerable point and please, there's no place ELSE the loons can put the America-Should-Die memorial to Kerry losing the election to the chimp?

I'd look for Schumer to step in as a mediator in all this and beg the "committee for the master plan" to rethink their decision to pull up stakes.
