    White House Issues 9/11 Observance Guidelines
    ::
       Life, Liberty, Faith & the Family (Independent) -> The Free the First Amendment Committee

    By MACKENZIE WEINGER | 8/30/11 6:20 AM EDT

    The White House has issued guidelines to government officials at home and abroad detailing how to commemorate the upcoming 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks and suggesting that references to Al Qaeda be minimized, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

    The internal documents — provided to the paper by officials in various federal agencies — set up instructions on how to honor the memory of those who died on Sept. 11 and warn Americans of the possibility of another terrorist attack.

    ‎"... we honor all victims of terrorism in every nation ..."
    Yeah, that's what 9/11 means, right?    And one more thing. This administration uses the word COMMEMORATE.  Is that the correct word?

    Websters 1828 and 1913 versions:
    To call to remembrance by a solemn act; to celebrate with honor and solemnity; to honor, as a person or event, by some act of respect or affection, intended to preserve the remembrance of that person or event. - "The Lords supper is designed to commemorate the sufferings and dying love of our Savior."

    To call to remembrance by a special act or observance; to celebrate with honor and solemnity; to honor, as a person or event, by some act of respect of affection, intended to preserve the remembrance of the person or event; as, to commemorate the sufferings and dying love of our Savior by the sacrament of the Lord's Supper; to commemorate the Declaration of Independence by the observance of the Fourth of July. - "We are called upon to commemorate a revolution." Atterbury. Syn. -- See Celebrate.

    "The guidelines tell officials to emphasize that “Al Qaeda and its adherents have become increasingly irrelevant,” and to reference the lack of any major role Al Qaeda played in the Arab Spring. Al Qaeda “represents the past,” the guidelines state, while peaceful protests in Arab countries “represent the future.”"

    -------------------
    Well, other than a giant question mark as to what forces are involved in the "Arab Spring", we don't know how Al Qaeda could be involved or even what the immediate results of it will be --never mind the long term. So it seems rather presumptuous to draw many concusions or emphasize anything about an Arab Spring, still in progress and yet to be determined. To do so "requires the willing suspension of disbelief".

    From Illinois affiliate Bill Lee: 

    I wonder who or what killed all these Muslim-Americans almost 10 years ago? He doesn’t quite get around to telling us...

    However, I wonder if [Alleged] President Obama removes his bling during Ramadan? Maybe next year we can check.

     

    Remarks at the Iftar dinner, August 10th 2011

    In one month, we will mark the 10th anniversary of those awful attacks that brought so much pain to our hearts. ..

    Muslim Americans were innocent passengers on those planes, including a young married couple looking forward to the birth of their first child. They were workers in the Twin Towers — Americans by birth and Americans by choice, immigrants who crossed the oceans to give their children a better life. They were cooks and waiters, but also analysts and executives.

    There, in the towers where they worked, they came together for daily prayers and meals at Iftar. They were looking to the future  ... And they were taken from us much too soon.

    Muslim Americans were first responders — the former police cadet who raced to the scene to help and then was lost when the towers collapsed around him; the EMTs who evacuated so many to safety; the nurse who tended to so many victims; the naval officer at the Pentagon who rushed into the flames and pulled the injured to safety. On this 10th anniversary, we honor these men and women for what they are — American heroes.

    Nor let us forget that every day for these past 10 years Muslim Americans have helped to protect our communities as police and firefighters, including some who join us tonight. Across our federal government, they keep our homeland secure, they guide our intelligence and counterterrorism efforts and they uphold the civil rights and civil liberties of all Americans. So make no mistake, Muslim Americans help to keep us safe.

    We see this in the brave service of our men and women in uniform, including thousands of Muslim Americans. In a time of war, they volunteered, knowing they could be sent into harm’s way.

    “In a time of war, they volunteered, knowing they could be sent into harm’s way.”

    Odd considering our brave volunteer soldiers were fired on by one such Muslim in Fort Hood. (by one who should have been removed) Even then they had a hard time acknowledging it as terrorism.
