Arizona 9/11 memorial -- the smoking gun

Fox News gets the moonbat to bark. (Via HotAir)

I wrote about this travesty once before. There's a 9/11 memorial in Arizona that commemorates the attacks but also wades hip-boot deep into moral equivalence. Fox News interviewed some critics of the memorial . . . and one of the commissioners who helped put it together, Paul Eppinger.

The video is at the HotAir link above. Here is an except of the transcript, which I wrote down:

Fox interviewer: "Another [inscription]: 'Middle East Violence Motivates Attacks in U.S.' We asked Memorial commissioner Paul Eppinger to explain."

Eppinger: "For me, what it means is that, um, our foreign policy for years has focused on total support of Israel."

Fox interviewer: "What does that have to do with 9/11?"

Eppinger: "I think that promoted the, the, uh, the violence."
Another nice tidbit from the news segment is that the memorial's inscriptions contain one letter for each of the 9/11 victims. The commissioners considered adding 19 more letters. For the hijackers.
