9/11 Memorial President Joe Daniels was prompted to reach out to 9/11 Memorial supporters and attack victims' families after Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad gave a politically-driven speech about the 2001 terrorist attacks at the U.N. General Assembly yesterday in Manhattan. Ahmadinejad's calculated and incediary remarks caused U.S. officials to abrutly walk out.
In the letter Daniels penned in response to the remarks, he said Ahmadinejad's words "was a grievous insult to the families and friends of those who lost their lives that tragic Tuesday, as well as to a nation and world that remain outraged by the indefensible terrorist attacks perpetrated by al Qaeda."
Daniels also spotlighted in his letter one of the chief purposes of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, which is to dispute lies such as Ahmadinejad's and for to lead in the "preservation and presentation of the authentic history of what occured on 9/11."
