In the event you missed it, MSNBC's Keith Olbermann delivered the most eloquent, heart wrenching and profoundly truthful tribute to the fallen of 911. It was presented only moments before the president took the stage at the White House and gave the nation yet another push for war in the name of the dead. The full text is posted on Common Dreams (9/12/06) and the MSNBC web site. A brief excerpt:
"Five years later this space is still empty.
"Five years later there is no memorial to the dead.
"Five years later there is no building rising to show with proud defiance that we would not have our America wrung from us, by cowards and criminals.
"Five years later this country's wound is still open.
"Five years later this country's mass grave is still unmarked.
"Five years later this is still just a backdrop for a photo op.
"It is beyond shameful."
Olbermann for President!
