Emails Reveal Obama Admin Shut Down WW II Memorial Knowing Vets Were Coming
Breitbart ^ | 11 Mar 2014 | Robert Wilde

Posted on 03/12/2014 5:13:47 AM PDT by tje

Newly released public records show that the Department of the Interior knew in advance that two groups of aging veterans would be visiting the World War II Memorial on October 1, 2013, but they decided to barricade the premises anyway.

According to emails obtained by National Review Online, the U.S. National Park Service employees were also constantly monitoring the news for any negative media attention. Moreover, the emails show that government shutdown exceptions were granted to National Park Service employees.

I guess this isn't a surprise, but what will be a surprise is if the MSM picks this up. I'm not holding my breath.

Boy the more time goes on the more light will shine on how corrupt this administration is. I thought the Clintons were bad. It will be interesting to see how “former” President Obama handles his retirement. He's not that old and will have to answer questions about his corruption for a long time. Not even the MSM will be able to cover for him. Thank god Al Gore invented the Internet. The truth will come out.

I hope he’s around to bring shame on the democrats for a long, long time. A living reminder of what a progressive really is.

The repubs should have been all over this issue.

Didn’t the dems hold a rally for the illegal aliens around this time?

"I guess this isn't a surprise, but what will be a surprise is if the MSM picks this up. I'm not holding my breath. "

No, "Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee" to punish an obscure mayor for some imagined offense is of far more interest to the MSM than shutting down war memorials to punish veterans.

Yes they did; just to further show their contempt for veterans.

The WH is festooned with 25-year-old, pimply-faced, socialist poly-sci grads who only think of ways to dismantle American culture at the behest of their Emperor. The whole administration is nothing but a bunch of squealing, petulant, bed-wetting children.

What surprises me is that a nation allows a person who deliberately abused 90 year-old WWII vets to remain President.

I knew that already. {That shutting down the memorial[s] was obama pissing in the Vets face. It did not change the way I feel toward the son of a bitch one iota. There is no way that I can despise that bastard and/or his worshipers more that I do.

It is up to the Republican leadership to go around the media, hold press conferences, become firebrands etc. to highlight the administration’s contempt for the military.They were busy being bipartisan, enjoying their perks, getting drunk or whatever. They never mentioned this issue and were AWOL.

If the repub leadership behaves this way (AWOL) when they have an issue handed to them, why should we think things are ever going to get better?

"Boy the more time goes on the more light will shine on how corrupt this administration is. Not even the MSM will be able to cover for him".

The MSM lives underground, where they thrive on darkness, deception and delusion, when the light shines in they have very dark glasses to deflect the light, they are all in for obama, and will not come out to the light. /S hoping I am wrong about this...

It was peeing in the face of the America Obama despises (and his wife isn’t proud of); he represents (and was elected twice by) an America that has no problem with any of his actions.

Don't you realize that these people don't have the capacity to feel shame? They're like animals, brute beasts.

I am sure that the State Run Media that was out crucifying Krispy Kreme because a staffer allegedly restricted access on a bridge will be right on top of this scandal. Wait what?

I bet that the order to close the WW II Monument came from Obama’s Libs—he hates the Military and all it stands for. When this gets out (and it will like all he is hiding now) his legasy will be as tarnished like Obamacare.

Correct you are. Wish had thought of that when I was writing. But every time I think about that bastard that currently occupies the White House, My blood pressure goes through the roof.

It’s a shame; I’m just past 40 and the country is unrecognizable to me. He really is a POS, and his regime has fundamentally transformed America (as he promised they would).
