I think they should have a guest speaker, how about Dr. Judy Wood.

AND you can imagine what the MSM is going to do to it.

What a charade, a lot of politicians spewing BS, its an absolute shame.

What does Obama really have to do with 9/11?

Why should even one survivor be left out so he can attend?

Just another PR stunt IMO, he's already on the campaign trail..


Of course, if he didn't attend, you could then say doesn't respect the enormity of situation. So you win either way.

I notice you have no problems with Bush attending. Funny that.

No, no, no, DownunderET, remember what Mayor Bloomberg said: This is not about politics, so speeches are inappropriate at this event.

We are ALL VICTIMS of the 911 tragedy... are you kidding me?




Yes, I also believe we are All victims of 9/11 !! I think any and everyone should be able to join this Ceremony !! I seek the truth of this terrible act against my country !! I feel like this is some kind of JFK coverup in some ways. Seems like no one will ever know the truth ,even though we have seen it with are own eyes. Peace

Doing things like this leads one to think thats its all part of the process of shutting the whole 911 thing down. 911's purpose is just about spent now.

Their is a paralell to drawn here even it may be a bit of a long bow but when the first Australian soldier died in Afganistain there lots of blowing of trumpets and gathrings of whose who and the top brass etc.

These days there a bit coverage of the spokes person for the miltary talking about how good a solider he etc and bit of coverage of the furneral, - see the trend?

Okay, suppose they can only fit the victims' family in. Fine, let them do it.

But what's preventing them from having a second ceremony two hours later for the survivors? Where's the compassion and the creativity? Hold a third one too if necessary.

A shoe-throwing ceremony sounds appropriate for the one who sat there reading from a book he was holding upside-down for 8 minutes, don't ya think?

Well, it would be rather strange if Bush went and Obama didn't. Let's be real.

I am kind of perplexed, however, about the fact that no president has ever attended one of these memorial services on the anniversary of 9/11. That was news to me and I can't understand how this could have occurred?

Yes, so people can point and say "He did it"...

No, no, no. 9-11 was all Clintons fault.

Did you not get the memo?

Say what?

What a bizarre combination of remembrance and forgetting. Perhaps they want to make sure the televised commemoration is all neat and pretty... and staged. It's as if there has been a larger disconnect with every passing year, and now the day is practically and abstraction of itself. I thought the whole point is it's a MEMORIAL. Since when does that not include people who survived? The regurgitation of a prepared statement to confirm the city's refusal is the icing on the cake.

Couple this with denying assistance to survivors and first responders that now have chronic or terminal health issues... basically sacrificing their lives for a slow and painful death, abandoned by the same government that wants to memorialize the day and capitalize on its emotional impact.

Twisted. I have a feeling that the media coverage of the day will be very controlled and limited in scope. I can only hope that "alternative" memorials also gain exposure so a message can be sent that this kind of blackout will not be tolerated.

Yeah, I find it ridiculous that Mayor Bloomberg says the reason they aren't going to have any of these people give speeches is because this ceremony "isn't about politics" and that "speeches aren't appropriate."

REALLY?

Sounds to me like they just want to create a nice photo op, spew some "poems and quotes" written by other people, and pacify the victims' family members, then get the HELL out of there. They don't want to address the crowd because these cowards probably can't even look these family members in the face. Not to mention the fact that if they stick around too long, they might have to see the look of disdain in some of these people's eyes.

The photos will make Bush and Obama look like they really care and give the impression that the party lines are lifted in times of tragedy. Nice political strategy, Obama. Two peas in a pod.
