Unbelievable: 9/11 Flight 93 Memorial Closed Due to "Shutdown"

The sacred ground near Shanksville, Pennsylvania where 9/11 Flight 93 crashed twelve years ago after being hijacked by Islamic terrorists has been closed by the National Park Service due to the 'government shutdown.'

The petty and ghoulish Spite House strikes again: Barrycades blocking WWII vets from their memorial, denying death benefits to military families and now this. The Flight 93 National Memorial is an open field for crying out loud. I hope Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett plans on working to get the memorial reopened so people can pay their respects.

Another example of how little boy Obama throws a tantrum.

We must make the rats pay for this in 2014 and 2016

Well, the local patriots should exclaim “Let’s roll!” and take the place over. A fitting testimony to Todd Beamer.

No surprise here; Obama has never felt any kinship for America.

The Islamist in the Spike House has closed the memorial of the Flight 93 attack caused by Islamists.

Complete upside down world we are stuck in.

Sure it’s intentional, and anyone who doesn’t think shutting down the EBT cards this past weekend wasn’t a “Make them hurt” trial balloon, well, then they haven’t been paying attention.

King Obama is our dictator and America has surrendered. Miss Romney yet? The GOP and it affiliates have done everything wrong. The Tea Party should have fully endorsed Romney when they had the chance to stop King Obama in his tracks. When will America learn. Beginning to think never.

America belongs to the citizenry. We don’t have to pay admission.

The plan is to shut them down, and keep them closed.... period.

Exactly. Who in their right mind would run a test of the backup system for EBT cards at 9 AM on a Saturday morning - the busiest shopping day of the week - unless it was intentional.

They will be opened up only for ‘special events’.

Case in point... the immigration rally. Precedent established.

Since the memorial is a giant Islamic crescent and an abomination - good.

This is indeed ghoulish and petty and based, in the best case scenario, on spite.

But, “sacred ground” is a bit over the top.

It’s worth it to avoid Commie Care shoved down our throats.

Seriously? The Muslim-in-Chief shut down a 9/11 site. That photo said it all.

I hate how the word “sacred” is placed on places having nothing to do with God. It happens all the time now, including by alleged language-savvy media reporters.

The proper word for such places is “hallowed”.
