Regular Atlas readers are well aware of this disgusting act of desecration. Obama apologizes for the burning of a defiled quran, but it's OK for the human remains of Americans murdered in the largest Islamic attack in our nation's history be a sideshow at a leftwing 911 museum exhibit where Daisy the Khan, Ground Zero mosqueteer, is an adviser insuring that the "muslim" perspective is "correctly" represented. Ugh.
Museum director Alice Greenwald made $351,000, and capital planning Vice President Joan Gerner soaked up $337,143 before leaving last spring. Development director Cathy Blaney raked in $322,292. The full-time foundation employee also worked last year as a fund-raiser for Gov. Cuomo's election campaign.
The money to pay the $5.3 million in compensation for the foundation's 87 staffers in 2009 came from private donations — $220 million raised in a Herculean grass-roots effort to honor the 2,974 victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.
Atlas readers, please start working the phones and your email lists. We must help the 911 families rescue their loved ones' remains from becoming a circus sideshow:

Concerned family members of the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center will gather near Ground Zero Sunday afternoon to release findings of a survey on whether unidentified victims’ remains should be stored at the 9/11 Museum.
Norman Siegel, an attorney representing a group of 9/11 families who sued New York City over the plans, will detail the survey, which found that 95 percent of those who responded oppose storing the remains in a museum.
The group also plans to show its support for 9/11 families and military families who recently learned partial remains of their relatives were disposed of in a landfill at Dover Air Force Base, according to a press release announcing the event.
An independent panel that studied management issues at Dover Air Force Base’s mortuary briefly mentioned the landfill disposal in a report it released during a press conference last week.
“We believe that human remains do no belong in a landfill or a museum,” said the statement released by Sally Regenhard, whose firefighter son died at the World Trade Center.
Regenhard, of Yonkers, is a member of 9/11 Parents & Families of Firefighters and WTC Victims.
The remains of more than 1,100 of the 2,753 victims killed at the World Trade Center have not been identified. More than 180 victims are from North Jersey.
