Turn 9/11 rubble into a killing machine? Hello? - Comment - Times Online
Interesting story in the Times...
"On August 28, 2002, Mr Pataki’s wish was granted with the result that 24 tons of steel from the stricken buildings was taken to New Orleans and put to use by Northrop Grumman Systems in the construction of an amphibious assault ship."
The writer, Martin Samuel highlights the irony very well when he says,
"In this way, the 2,800 souls that perished as an indirect result of an interventionist foreign policy that achieved the exact opposite of its stated aims can be honoured by a vessel built to ensure that this flawed cycle of violence continues."
