Adios, Au Revoir, Buh-Bye to the IFC at Ground Zero

Finally, Pataki gets off the fence and does the right thing: The International Freedom Center will not have a home at the 9-11 memorial at Ground Zero. Read the gracious response from Take Back the Memorial here. (Read our reports from the rally at Ground Zero earlier this month here and here.)

And here's what the IFC had to say about it all. Evidently, there can be no IFC anywhere but at the World Trade Center site. Their years of effort are down the tubes. They're rolling up the carpet and calling it quits. Amazing. Could it be that they don't think they would be able to draw enough of a crowd on their own, without piggy-backing on those who come to pay respects to those lost on 9-11?

All I can say is that, if they give up that easily on talking about freedom, thank God they weren't charged with winning or perpetuating it.
