Today's Must-Read: Ground Zero Invaded

I'm actually a day late (but am I dollar short? You bet I am...) on this story. The Wall Street Journal has a most disturbing piece by the sister of the pilot of Flight 77 (the one that hit the Pentagon) on the startling background of the World Trade Memorial's primary tenant. Quote:
...the Lower Manhattan Development Corp. is handing over millions of federal dollars and the keys to that building to some of the very same people who consider the post-9/11 provisions of the Patriot Act more dangerous than the terrorists that they were enacted to apprehend -- people whose inflammatory claims of a deliberate torture policy at Guantanamo Bay are undermining this country's efforts to foster freedom elsewhere in the world.
Read the whole thing; it's quite appalling...
