Rumsfeld announces 9/11 anniversary pageant
I received emails from three readers in the last few minutes about this mind-blowing craptastic news out of the Pentagon. Are you ready for the Defense Department’s first annual “America Supports You Freedom Walk” to commemorate the terrorist attacks on 9/11?
The author of the press release, Steven Donald Smith of the American Forces Press Service, must have been high as a kite when he typed up this nonsense from your friend and mine, patriot and ace military strategist Donald Rumsfeld.
The Freedom Walk will begin at 10 a.m. Sept. 11 in the Pentagon South parking lot, near the site where the airliner crashed into the Pentagon on 9/11. The walk route will consist of a two-mile trek through Arlington National Cemetery, over the Potomac River, and will end by the reflecting pool on the National Mall, where a free concert featuring country music star Clint Black will take place.
“I am proud and honored to be part of the America Supports You Freedom Walk to honor the victims of 9/11 and to support our men and women in uniform,” Black said.
Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld made the announcement today at the Pentagon.
“Every year since the Sept. 11 attacks, Americans have commemorated that anniversary. This year the Department of Defense will initiate an American Supports You Freedom Walk. The walk will begin at the Pentagon and end at the National Mall. It will include many of the major monuments in Washington, D.C., reminding participants of the sacrifices of this generation and of each previous generation that have so successfully defended our freedoms,” Rumsfeld said.
Has your breathing returned to normal yet? I can’t imagine what families of 9/11 victims think of this, never mind all the military folks getting their asses blown up and shot at for no reason over in Iraq. Just heinous.
Patriots, here’s the site where you can sign up to walk. Take a look at the sponsors of this
