VIDEO: 9/11 Museum Dedicated in New York City
The redevelopment of what once was Ground Zero passed another milestone Thursday when President Obama helped dedicate the National September 11 Museum in the cavernous foundation hole of the office complex destroyed by the 2001 terror attacks.
"To all those who responded with so much courage ... it is an honor for us to join in your memories, to recall and reflect but above all to reaffirm the true spirit of 9/11: love, compassion, sacrifice and to enshrine it in the heart of our nation forever," Obama said, addressing the families of the fallen. "All who come here will find it to be a profound and moving experience."
Hundreds of 9/11 survivors, victims' relatives, emergency responders and recovery workers attended the dedication at the former site of the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan, USA Today reports.

One of the interesting stories is that Islamic pressure groups tried to bully the museum into censoring a film which told the story of the terrorists who did the attacks. The groups, including the terrorist-connected CAIR, felt that words like Islamic and Muslim should be purged from the site as well as from documentary displays and the movie. The 9/11 museum authorities, bless them, stood firm. One of the main Islamic bullies pushing for the censorship is quite a bigot himself: he has made frequent statements claiming that 9/11 was a "Jewish plot," engineered in conjunction with President Bush.
