Government watchdog Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act request to get to the bottom of the National Park Service’s actions at the World War II Memorial in Washington this week. The NPS has barricaded the memorial and on Tuesday tried to prevent veterans from visiting the memorial, which has no amenities and is normally open to the public at all times.

The Judicial Watch FOIA request reads:

The National Park service has closed facilities that are either unmanned or take no federal funding, and says that the Obama administration ordered the shutdown. Anna Eberly, managing director of the Claude Moore Colonial Farm in Virginia, told Tatler that the NPS is renting the barricades that it is using to enforce the closures, an increase in the service’s operating costs at a time that the government is partially shut down.

A bunch of 90 year-old men in wheelchairs on oxygen tanks took what was left of Obama's manhood after Putin got through with him, and marched through the barriers.
Bwahahahahahah.
Obama and the Dems hate America, they hate the military, and they ESPECIALLY hate the courage that these men, and thousands of other men and women, have shown by joining the military because they know in their hearts, that they are cowards and aren't worthy of licking dog sh*t off the bottom of a soldier's combat boot.

We have become such a society of weenies that we have to have some 80 year old WWII vet show us how to handle tyranny. And we are losing those guys at the rate of 1000 per day.

Printing money, to rent barricades, for a bankrupt agency, to close an unmanned park...a perfect metaphor for what we can expect with these clowns in office another 3 years.

We should pray they don't start a war to "wag the dog" and make us forget all the domestic misery. I wouldn't put it past 'em.

This is the height of hipocracy and cynicism. It costs more to put up the barriers to keep people out of these memorials, than it costs to just leave them open. I thought a shutdown directed each agency to not spend money, but in this case it looks like obamas people are purposely spending extra money, just to make the shutdown look worse.

To put them in their place, they ought to start an occupy site minus the filthy smelly hippies. Then watch at how they are treated compared to the filthy, smelly hippies (as in coddled).

I am writing Bill Nelson - unfortunately my Senator - about each and every one of these outrages. Separate emails. All have the subject line "Democrat shut down of Government" Overwhelm them with feed back on this crap.

Thank goodness someone is doing this! No one disses our vets, unless it comes to funding their healthcare of course Close a memorial? A scandal! This is a loser issue and only makes conservatives look silly. How about the fact that work has stopped on clean up at toxic spill sites? Or work has stopped on Colorado disaster relief efforts? Nah, big gubamint is eeevil, they dis old guys.

"… clean up at toxic spill sites …"
None of the Democrat caucus rooms or offices on Capitol Hill have ever been checked.

Yes big Government is evil because they are depriving these 'old guys' a chance to see this memorial - not because it costs the government any money to keep it open but merely because they can be spiteful to try to prove a point.

That's nothing! Check out Weasel Zippers Story about them sending Police to remove volunteers and workers from a Virginia Park that the NPS doesn't own or pay for! This is coming from the Top, and I'd love to know who!

The thugs at the National Park Service have an office, cars, and home. We should occupy these locations and make them run a gauntlet daily. Make them fear us more than they fear their supervisor's memos.
