WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. Park Police in Washington say the Lincoln Memorial is temporarily closed after someone splattered green paint on the statue and the floor area. Police say the apparent vandalism was discovered early Friday morning. No words, letters or symbols were visible in the paint. Police say the memorial on the National Mall will be closed until a maintenance crew from the National Park Service can finish cleaning up the paint. That's expected to happen Friday morning.

It would seem to me that they should have video’s of the perp.

The Lincoln Memorial is an open place, but it would seem that they would have video surveillance on it.

Yeah, could be that too.

But the Muzzies prefer bombs over paint cans.

Actually, I’d bet on a inside job with one of the guards responsible, with the furlough deep at issue in their gut. You had to know when guards wouldn’t be around, and likely have some knowledge of the cameras. As for getting away? My bet is that a second person had a car on the Arlington side, drove across the bridge and picked up the paint-guy when he was done, and drove on off toward Georgetown.

Crap - My son is on a US History trip with Hillsdale College. I think they are scheduled to visit there today.

Aren’t there at least a million video cameras pointing at the Lincoln Memorial?

My bet is that they know exactly who did this.

Hmmm, the leftist organization known as “All That’s Left” has used green paint in the past:

In this day of surveillance I bet there are more than a handful of cameras along the mall.
