Small victory lap

New York Gov. George Pataki informed the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation that the International Freedom Center museum that had planned to be located at the site of the former World Trade Center could not be placed there. The IFC is a brainchild of the Left and its principal contributors included such far-left heavyweights as Eric Foner, George Soros and Michael Posner.

Debra Burlingame, sister of pilot Charles "Chic" Burlingame who flew the plane that the terrorists hijacked and flew into the Pentagon, is a member of the WTC Memorial Foundation and spoke out against the Left-wing attempts to proselytize on the WTC site through a public-funded project.

Proving that its only purpose was morally equivalent indoctrination, the IFC refused the Governor's offer of relocating and completely shut down 42 minutes after his announcement to the LMDC.

The Burlingame op-ed in the Wall Street Journal that first shone a light on the IFC's machinations and intentions is linked above.
