Thanks to Robert for passing this “Take Back The Memorial” update to me. (Link here for full story)
A global network of human rights museums is urging the International Freedom Center to downplay America in its exhibits and programs at Ground Zero, the Daily News has learned.
The outrageous request is the latest controversy to torment the Freedom Center, whose leaders have tried to dispel the perception that it would be a home for America bashers.
“Don’t feature America first,” the IFC has been advised by the consortium of 14 “museums of conscience” that quietly has been consulting with the Freedom Center for the past two years over plans for the hallowed site. “Think internationally, where America is one of the many nations of the world.”
I urge everyone to help “Take Back The Memorial.”

UPDATE (from GPW): In an editorial, the New York Daily News responds to the aforementioned request to the International Freedom Center:
Consider this [quoting from the museums’ group’s request], too: “The Freedom Center is a caricature of the typical American response to everything (telling every story from an American viewpoint).” Exactly what viewpoint is an American museum on American soil marking an American tragedy supposed to express? Oh, right. Bangladeshi.
