A million thanks to AZ Patriot, who did yeoman’s work for us today by heading over there and snapping these pics. I think this is the whole series but I’m not sure; he hasn’t responded to my e-mail yet.

Here they are, in sequence. I’ve made the “interesting” ones full size. The rest are clickable thumbnails. One of the full size images towards the end having to do with “terrorist organizations” got cut off. Hopefully AZP will stop by and tell us what the full inscription says. Bear in mind as you go that the memorial’s website describes it thusly:

Arizona’s September 11th Memorial will be built at Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza located directly in front of the Capitol Mall so that future generations will not forget the tragic losses of life and the inspiration, heroism and lessons learned that day. This monument to those who died, served and rallied to the cause, will be a worthy and lasting education symbol to remind us of how our great State came together in the face of adversity.

Mary K has a comprehensive post about this. Don’t miss that either.

Update: One of Len Munsil’s staffers sends along audio of AZ governor Janet Napolitano telling a radio host on Friday how “great” the memorial is. When a caller phones in to ask her if she’s familiar with Espresso Pundit’s criticism of it — well, just listen. See if her answer, in the context of this post, persuades you.

Munsil, smartly, has been working this on his website and is planning to host a presser on it tomorrow at 11 a.m. PST.

Update: Wondering why some of those phrases — “Must Bomb Back,” “You Don’t Win Battles of Terrorism with More Battles” — are in quotes? So did SeeDubya. And after a quick Lexis-Nexis search, he has no answers.
