Plan for unidentified 9/11 remains draws protest



NEW YORK (AP) - Some family members of Sept. 11 victims say they will protest when the unidentified remains of those killed at the World Trade Center are returned to the site.

The family members said Thursday that the plan to house the remains in the same building as the National September 11 Memorial Museum is disrespectful.

They want the remains entombed on the adjacent Memorial Plaza.

Retired firefighter Jim Riches said Sept. 11 family members are outraged. Sally Regenhard said they dread the opening of the museum this month. Riches and Regenhard both lost firefighter sons.

City officials plan to move the remains from the medical examiner's office on Saturday.

The city says the remains will be in an area separate from the museum, though in the same building.br />

But it will help motivate the Americans to fight in the wars of the Middle East.

Silkroadg :

You are wrong...
Sea levels are raising instead and believe it or not, AL GORE's scientists concluded
that cow farts are connected to global warming....
Same logic for still keeping our brave boys fighting ghosts in Afghanistan under
stupid, moronic UN "Rules of Engagement" .....

Are mosques and "madrassas" anything but Trojan horses...?????
Pray tell us what is being preached and taught in those places....
LOVE FOR THEIR FELLOW "INFIDELS"....????
When are the American people come down from the cloud concerning this useless scum
we allowed in our midst and whose goal is their World Caliphate, well in its way, having
landed already one of them no less than in the White House....
Or will anybody still insist on stating that Obama is Christian...??????

Why won't they be buried? Museums are returning old native American bones for burial -- why don't these get the same honor?

You can rest assured that if there were ANY chance that there was even one freaking MUSLIM DNA speck in those remains that Mr. Obama would come prancing in to the RESCUE to protect the RELIGION OF PEACE. Remember.........clearly the Quoran states that the "remains" of INFIDELS are STILL infidels, so just flush them down the toilet!!! By the way.............LIPSTICK ON A GORILLA IS STILL A GORILLA!!!

"They want the remains entombed on the adjacent Memorial Plaza."
*********************
The remains can't consist of much...let the families have their way. It won't hurt anybody. There can be a final ceremony and prayers then they will have a place to visit and pretend their loved ones remains are there.

they belong outside. Not inside at the museum.They were killed on 911 with the people whose names are on the the footprints on Tower 1 and 2. Think before you make this BIG mistake. God Bless America and the City of New York.

Tell that to the unidentified enshrined in museums at Auschwitz and other sites around the world. This is not an insult. It is a strong and lasting reminder of the horror that took place here.

sorry for your loss but get over yourselves already. Many of us have suffered equal if not greater levels of loss. Get on with your lives and let us all live ours already.
