Police, firemen and rescue workers
who risked their lives to save the victims of 9/11 will not be invited
to take part in the 10th anniversary ceremony.

giving up hours, days and weeks of their time to search for survivors
and clear rubble, unpaid, rescuers are to be snubbed at next month's
remembrance events.

responders will instead be asked back to the site at another day for a
separate commemorative ceremony, according to officials.

They should ask the family of Deborah Reeve how they feel about this.

Can't have people who actually risked their lives in close proximity to the Chosen One.
Nero must maintain his cleanliness via his distance from the unwashed masses you know.

It is extremely hard to watch any coverage of the 9/11 attack without getting very emotional about it.  It also saddens me that America just wants to give up and bring our troops home.  I wish our Congress would step to the side and let our servicemen do the job that is needed to eradicate the taliban once and for all.

It also appears that they will be selectively screening 9/11 families to make sure the ones who are anti-Obama/pro Bush do not appear.   And, Bush is likely to not to be allowed to attend.  Obama is going to turn this into a campaign appearance.
