It is apparently a job requirement that if you work for Obama, you lie like a rug.

The National Park Service director told Congress on Wednesday that he had to shut down the open-air memorials on the Mall during the government shutdown because of terrorism, saying that closing them was the only way to protect them “in a post-9/11 world.”

Director Jonathan B. Jarvis also said his agency had received intelligence showing an increased threat of danger since the shutdown began — though he would not tell two House committees what those warnings were...

Mr. Jarvis acknowledged he ran his closure plans by the White House, though he couldn’t remember who he spoke with. He said the decisions were his, not the White House’s.


This guy Jarvis is human scum and has done irreparable harm to he public's relationship with the National Parks Service personnel.

The sad thing is, if they had come out with this excuse straight away very few people would have questioned it.

You guys really need to man up about terrorists.

The terrorists were  89-year-old men wearing American Legion caps.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

Cause he's on the same side as the thugs who do that kind of thing.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

A wise man once said something about dragging a 100 dollar bill through a trailer park.  Or maybe he wasn't so wise.
