AllahPundit (with signature Photoshop) sends the word via KVOA:

A state commission that authorized placement of the Arizona 9-11 Memorial in Wesley Bolin Plaza will review controversial laser-cut inscriptions “and see if some of them could be removed,” the panel’s chairman said Wednesday.

Former state Sen. Tom Smith, chairman of the Legislative Governmental Mall Commission, also said the commission hadn’t made it a practice to review the wording of any memorials…Smith said Wednesday it never occurred to him during the February meeting to check on details of the inscriptions’ wording.

“We never thought anything would be inappropriate,” he said. “It didn’t sound like there would be anything controversial.”

The entire debacle could have been avoided if someone had bothered to check the wording on the 9/11 memorial inscriptions before it was built. For. Crying. Out. Loud.

The Arizona GOP has produced an ad taking Dem. Gov. Janet Napolitano to task for the memorial. It’s here.

Laura W. points to what an appropriate 9/11 memorial looks like at Ace of Spades. See? No references to “Uruzgan civilians” necessary.
