Of course the WH ordered this. They are doling out the punishment for the shutdown. Obama has a history of this...remember the sequester?

The Memorial is normally free and has nobody from the Park Service around it.


ETA: Also, who's paying for the barricades?

quote:

The National World War II Memorial was funded almost entirely by private contributions, as specified in Public Law 103-32. The campaign received more than $197 million in cash and pledges. Support came from hundreds of thousands of individual Americans, hundreds of corporations and foundations, veterans groups, dozens of civic, fraternal and professional organizations, states and one territory, and students in 1,200 schools across the country.

Donated and pledged funds were used to cover the total project costs of approximately $182 million. These costs include site selection and design, construction and sculpture, a National Park Service maintenance fee required by the Commemorative Works Act, groundbreaking and dedication ceremonies, fund raising, and the 11-year administrative costs of the project from its inception in 1993 through completion in 2004.

Remaining funds are held on deposit with the U.S. Treasury in a National WWII Memorial Trust Fund. The funds will be used by the American Battle Monuments Commission solely to benefit the World War II Memorial.


And why can the memorial be open at night with no barricades, and no Park Police, protection but right now it can't be?

Also, why were the memorials never closed during past shutdowns?

Obama Administation Arbitrarily Choosing Which D.C. Monuments and Parks to Close Off to Veterans and Tourists

Press release from House Natural Resources Committee:

quote:

WASHINGTON, D.C., October 2, 2013 - Yesterday, the Obama Administration began selectively erecting barricades to keep visitors, including large groups of World War II veterans, from visiting popular monuments such as the World War II Memorial, Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, and the National Mall. However, the Obama Administration is applying this policy inconsistently and choosing which memorials to block off and which to keep open. While these popular monuments remain barricaded, other U.S. Park properties such as the Constitutional Gardens and Japanese Americans Memorial remain completely open.

God you're a fricking dumbass... You realize that there is no gate or fence at the memorial? It is an open air memorial... There is no staff, only patrol by the park police, which will STILL BE WORKING.

They are spending money to barricade off an exhibit for NOTHING.

Who isn't there? Sure looks like Park Police are there to make sure people stay out.

Seems like Obama loves the Constitution ( ) and wishes the Japanese were victorious in WW2.

Let's just add that to the list of his transgressions.

Guess you didn't read above?

So is he going to put up a sheet in front of the White House so nobody can view it?
