In her brilliant June 7 Wall Street Journal column, Debra Burlingame played the role of Paul Revere in alerting us to “The Great Ground Zero Heist.” The heist to which she referred was that of the International Freedom Center planned for Ground Zero; she is is a member of the board of directors of the World Trade Center Memorial Foundation and the sister of Charles F. “Chic” Burlingame III, pilot of American Airlines fight 77, which was crashed at the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. This afternoon Debra appeared on the opening segment of the MSNBC Connected Coast to Coast show with Ron Reagan and Monica Crowley. She was exceedingly eloquent and restrained. I had the difficult task of following Debra on the show together with Bill Scher of Liberal Oasis.
Several sites have posted the video of the two segments regarding the International Freedom Center. Robert Shurbet of the Take Back the Memorial site has posted the video here (both segments), Ian Schwartz of The Political Teen has posted the video here (Debra) and here (me), and Mark Williams of Dem Bloggers has posted the video here (second segment only). Message: Take back the memorial.
