The International Freedom Center
September 22nd, 2005

As the deadline for a decision on The International Freedom Center at Ground Zero approaches, two more groups have come out and criticized the plan. The Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association said it opposed the plan and three key New York congressmen threatened hearings into the appropriateness on federal funding at Ground Zero. The New York Post editorial argues that these groups and others before them worried that the center that is meant to celebrate “freedom” will degenerate into just one more bash-America venue. “The IFC … is meant to be an academically oriented “educational” center. You know what that means: Counting how many ways there are to blame America for the world’s ills, including the 9/11 attacks themselves.”
