Obama Administration Moves to Downplay 9/11

"The Obama administration and its progressive allies have launched a secret initiative to "rebrand" the events of 9/11, conservatives warn, turning it into a more Democratic-friendly day of national service and discarding the "Patriot Day" memorials promoted by the Bush administration.

Instead, they say, the memorial will focus on community volunteerism and green initiatives. Planting gardens, picking up litter, and cleaning up parks are few of the activities that the Obama administration proudly hails as part of "the first September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance."

"The Obama White House is behind a cynical, coldly calculated political effort to erase the meaning of the 9/11 terrorist attacks from the American psyche and convert Sept. 11 into a day of leftist celebration and statist idolatry," Matthew Vadum, senior editor of the Capital Research Center, wrote in a recent article posted on The American Spectator's Web site."
