9/11 Museum Director Tried to Cut Firefighter Photo: Too 'Rah-Rah American'
According to Elizabeth Greenspan, author of the up coming book Battle for Ground Zero (St. Martin’s Press), Michael Shulan, creative director of the 9/11 Memorial Museum, thought
about cutting the famed photo from Ground Zero of three firefighters
raising the American flag amidst the rubble of the World Trade
Center…because he thought it was too “rah-rah America.” Shulan said, “I
really believe that the way America will look best, the way we can
really do best, is to not be Americans so vigilantly and so vehemently.”
