Yet Another Minor Airbrushing

John Hinderaker links to a Minneapolis Star-Tribune article headlined, “FEMA grounds Minnesota coloring book with pic of 9/11 attack”, and includes a scanned copy of the page in question, adding:

It isn’t hard to see where this is going. It started with the television networks imposing de facto censorship on all footage of the September 11 attacks. The pace of revisionism is accelerating as Obama’s executive branch reviews everything produced by “the previous administration.” Eventually the only public legacy of the September 11 attacks will be photos of American soldiers brutalizing detainees.

To paraphrase Bogie in Casablanca, as we know from Monday’s impomptu strafing by “Air Force One”, they’re still awake in New York — even if they’re asleep in DC and, increasingly, elsewhere.
