WHY THE FUSS? IT’S JUST A HOLE IN THE GROUND.
CATEGORY: General

C’mon, America. Lighten up!

President Ahmadinejad being escorted to Ground Zero in New York City shouldn’t get everyone’s panties in a twist. Didn’t you hear? This is the guy who is going to end the Iraq War and allow the boys to come home. If he wants to visit Ground Zero – even though he and his rogue nation are terrorist sponsoring scum – then by God the Bush Administration and all of the Iranian apologists in this country are going to make sure he gets his wish.

In a move that has stunned New York, the Bloomberg administration is in discussions to escort the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to ground zero during his visit to New York next week, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said today.

The Iranian mission to the U.N. made the request to the New York City Police Department and the Secret Service, which will jointly oversee security during the leader’s two-day visit. Mr. Ahmadinejad is scheduled to arrive September 24 to speak to the U.N. General Assembly as the Security Council decides whether to increase sanctions against his country for its uranium enrichment program.

Mr. Kelly said the NYPD and Secret Service were in discussions with the Iranian Mission about the logistics for the possible visit, and whether it will take place at all. He said that for safety reasons related to ongoing construction at ground zero Mr. Ahmadinejad would not be allowed to descend into the pit.

Wouldn’t you like to have been a fly on the wall in the White House when the Secret Service told the President that Ahmadinejad wanted to visit Ground Zero?

The White House will deny the President was informed of the tour but I would be monumentally shocked if Bush weren’t told within 5 minutes of the request being made. Somebody somewhere somehow had to give the go ahead for such planning to occur, especially since you have so many security services involved.

I’ve been wracking my brain trying to think of what anyone could imagine would be a bigger insult to the dead of 9/11. Yassar Arafat laying a wreath in Shanksville? How about Nasty Nasrallah being invited to tour the new wing of the Pentagon, rebuilt after the attacks?

There is no imagining what would be a bigger insult because there wouldn’t be one. The fact is, there is no more wrenching, rage inducing, fist-through-the-wall event that could take place in this day and age than allowing the President of a state that equated the 9/11 attacks with our attack on Hiroshima to visit Ground Zero.

It would be no different than if we had allowed Tojo to visit the Arizona Memorial.

THE LEAST SURPRISING UPDATE IN THE HISTORY OF THIS BLOG

Evidently, the New York City police have nixed the idea of an Ahmadinejad drop by at Ground Zero:

Earlier today, Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly had said that Iranian officials had made a “formal request” that Mr. Ahmadinejad be permitted to visit ground zero and that the department, in coordination with the Secret Service, was discussing the matter with officials of the Iranian Mission to the United Nations…

A short while later, around 4:15 p.m., the Police Department’s spokesman, Paul J. Browne, said that Mr. Kelly had misspoke and that police commanders had already decided that a visit to ground zero by Mr. Ahmadinejad was not feasible.

Bush washed his hands of the responsibility for the incident faster than Pontius Pilate:

President Bush, moving quickly to respond to news that the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has asked to visit ground zero, had a spokesman issue a statement aimed at Mayor Bloomberg that said – in so many words — deal with it.

“This is a matter for the City of New York resolve,” a spokesman for the National Security Council at the White House, Gordon Johndroe, said. He added pointedly: “It seems odd that the president of a country that is a state sponsor of terror would visit ground zero.”

Odd? ODD? Holy Christ what a moron! Fire that flunky immediately.

Allah, by the way, has the definitive wrap-up on this mini-storm that will now probably die down, and adds this:

If it happens, if this Holocaust-denying terrorist filthbag is allowed to use the remains of the Trade Center for a photo op, the rage on the right will burn so white hot that even the anti-amnesty activism this summer will pale by comparison.

The tone deafness of that crew at the White House when it comes to the base – on up to and including Bush – never ceases to amaze me.

    Rick closes: “The tone deafness of that crew at the White House when it comes to the base – on up to and including Bush – never ceases to amaze me.”

    Sadly, the tone deafness of the White House, when it comes to Iran, has been amazing me since 1979. It has been a mistake for way too long.

    It’d be nice, though it’ll never happen, if we announced the addition of a few more carrier groups to gulf a few minutes after Ahmadinejad lands at JFK, then the next day raise the terror alert in NYC to Red and cancel all flights including his return flight…

    So it’s okay to embrace the ‘terrorists’ we have been fighting for 4 years in Anbar province and use them as political props, yet it’s not okay to try and open dialog with Iran?

    Rick Moran Said:
    9:57 am 

    You know, there are some times on this blog that I just kind of shake my head in wonderment at how anyone can be so stupid.

    Kuni just gave me one of those moments.

    Your comment was so idiotic on so many levels I will let others take you on if they wish. Someone might start with the fact that THE FUCKING SUNNI TERRORISTS IN ANBAR ARE NOT GOING TO BE LAYING A WREATH AT GROUND ZERO.

    Then we might move on to the fact that most of the tribal fighters who were insurgents did not target civilians but rather American troops – something you’d know if you read something besides ignorant lefty websites.

    Finally, someone might ask what kind of “dialog” could be had with a Holocaust denying, 12th century, messianic nutcase who believes the American government was responsible for 9/11?

    Let others talk with the terrorist enabling thug. And before you accuse me (ignorantly) of supporting a bombing campaign, you might want to read what I’ve written about Iran – I have consistently said it is not necessary or desirable to go to war with them.

    But neither is enabling this guy’s messianic fantasies.

Here are only a few solid explanations why. Related: wonder if the Rotsee-hating ratbags at Columbia would be nearly as eager to have, say, David Duke come give ‘em a little intellectual stimulation and thought-provoking debate? [...]

    Zbigniew Mazurak Said:
    7:57 am 

    Axioms:
    1) US law forbids terrorists to come to the US.
    2) Ahmadinejad is a terrorist, so he is legally forbidden to come to the US.
    3) If the INS and border guards do not order him to go back to Iran, they will, by doing so, refuse to enforce US law.
    4) If the POTUS does not order the US military to attack Iran before 1/20/2009, he will break his presidential oath.

    Hi,

    Just some FYI:

    WASHINGTON, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Friday

    Freedom’s Watch President Bradley A. Blakeman released a statement and a copy of the print advertisement it has requested to be run in the Monday edition of the New York Times.

    “Freedom’s Watch could not sit back and allow a terrorist to come to
    America masquerading as a world leader. We have an obligation to warn the
    world of the dangers of a nuclear Iran and to uncover the true intent, that
    being, the destruction of the United States and the State of Israel.

    Let’s be clear, Iran today kills American soldiers in Iraq and they will not stop
    there,” said Bradley A. Blakeman, President of Freedom’s Watch.

    The text of the advertisement follows:

    Ahmadinejad Is A Terrorist

    Columbia University is wrong to give him a platform.

    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad threatens our nation and the
    freedoms we value. He has supported attacks on our soldiers and our allies.
    He should be treated as the terrorist that he is.

    Yet, while Columbia gives a terrorist like Ahmadinejad a platform to
    speak, they refuse to allow the ROTC on campus.

    What has happened to this prestigious university?

    People who support killing Americans are welcome. But the military that
    defends them is not.

    Columbia should be ashamed of its actions.

    Freedom’s Watch knows that America and the forces of freedom are right.
    We know the threat of terrorism is real. And we know Democracy must
    prevail.

    The terrorists and their appeasers are wrong.

    “And God willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon
    experience a world without the United States and Zionism.”
    — Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
    (CNN, 10/27/05)

    Thank You Freedom’s Watch For Taking A Stand For OUR Country And Troops!

    Peace!
