By Michelle Malkin  •  May 19, 2007 09:08 PM

Jonathan V. Last reports that the disastrous “Crescent of Embrace” in Shanksville, Pa., was the result not only of insipid political correctness–but of abject, soulless bureaucracy. Read the whole thing. Here’s the conclusion: At some point in the next few years, the National Park Service will give us its version of the Flight 93 Memorial. […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 5, 2006 08:54 PM

Remember the cross-shaped beams pulled from the wreckage at the World Trade Center on 9/11? The symbol of faith and hope that inspired rescue workers and 9/11 families is being moved from the site.

This is the last line of my 9/11 column and it’s my 9/11 anniversary message to the convert-or-die jihadists. And yes, I’ve got t-shirts in the works as a […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 6, 2006 09:49 AM

Debra Burlingame exposes the squandering of 9/11 memorial funds: The American people, watching the horrific scenes in New York, Virginia and Pennsylvania, voiced nary a peep of dissent when the federal government handed over $21 billion in disaster relief–$18 billion in rebuilding bonds and tax credits, and $2.8 billion in immediate cash grants–to the state […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 12, 2005 03:25 PM

Did you watch the Discovery Channel documentary last night on Flight 93? Did you weep and curse and cheer?

MINIMIZING AMERICA AT GROUND ZERO

By mmguestblogger  •  August 22, 2005 06:23 PM

Michelle has written before about plans to turn the 9/11 memorial in New York City at Ground Zero into an International Freedom Center that would focus on threats to freedom throughout history and around to world instead of a tribute and memorial to those who died on 9/11.
