The 9/11 monument in New Jersey you never heard about

Gee, our crack mainstream media must have accidentally dropped this story behind the vending machine.

Politics or Poppycock has a series of photos depicting a monument to the victims of 9/11 in Bayonne, New Jersey. He writes, "I'm stunned. I have never heard, seen or read anything about this. Isn't it wonderful to live in a country where the media controls what we should know?"

The monument is a gift to the people of America from the citizens of Russia signifying the importance of the war against global terrorism.

Oops. That face may be one of the reasons our beloved mainstream media "forgot" to report the story.

The impressive teardrop monument is truly striking.

The victims of 9/11 are inscribed on a memorial wall.

Perhaps some enterprising reporter could let us know exactly what year this monument was installed.

They'll just have to remember not to call the hijackers "terrorists" or "enemy combatants", because President Obama doesn't permit that.

It was opened on Septemeber 11th, 2006. A staff of Russian sculptors and architectural engineers shipped the monument by 6 ships and took five months to assemble in Bayonne. It was a major undertaking by Russia, and it wasn't cheap.

So why did the USA not Pubically thank Russia for this monument? It is a beautiful symbol of the tragidy that happened that affected the Entire world. I think it is disgusting that no one has seen or heard of this before. Like I said why did the USA hide it??
