Rep. Tom Tancredo has once again proven that fanatic, close-minded people can be of any religious background (“9/11 memorial under fire,” Sept. 14). His assertion that the Flight 93 memorial “honors the terrorists” because it is shaped like a crescent is comical. According to this logic, a person who hangs the cross pays tribute to the crusaders, the Ku Klux Klan, the people who bomb abortion clinics and all other Christian terrorists.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today dismissed Rep. Tom Tancredo’s (R-CO) comments on the design of a memorial to those aboard a plane that crashed in Pennsylvania on 9/11 as a cynical political ploy designed to gain national attention. (See: http://tancredo.house.gov/)
I would like to thank Leonard Pitts for his wonderful handling of comments such as those of Rep. Tom Tancredo that do nothing but incite fear and hate (“Inflammatory remarks feed the enemy,” Commentary, Aug. 2).
