My dad's friend died at Pearl Harbor. When he visited the Arizona Memorial on two different times, he found they had two different presentations presented to visitors. They insinuated the U.S. was to blame when Japanese visited. When WWII vets visited there was the correct version.

It will be interesting to see how history remembers 9/11 in 70 years. Will it be insinuated the U.S. was the cause because of its support of Israel, not negotiating with terrorists or the U.S. lifestyle?

William Larsen: Are you kidding, there are lots of people already telling us that 9/11 was our fault - we don't have to wait 70 years for that. The difference is that it took us 70 years to become "politically correct" about Pearl, we were already there when 9/11 happened.
