9/11 Families & Firefighters Call on
Bush Campaign To Withdraw Ads Using WTC Imagery
2004-03-04 | *PRESS CONFERENCE, NEW LOCATION: SHERATON
President Bush Breaks Promise Not to Use Sept.
11th “As a Political Issue”
9/11 victims’ families and firefighters will convene in NYC on Friday at 10AM to charge President Bush with exploiting September 11th for political advantage in his new line of campaign advertisements. They will call on the campaign to remove the ads from the airwaves.
On January 23, 2004 President Bush said, according to a report by the Associated Press: “I have no ambition whatsoever to use [9/11 or national security] as a political issue.” Two of the campaign’s new ads launched today, however, show images of the World Trade Center devastation with an American flag waving, followed by the tagline: “President Bush: Steady Leadership in Times of Change.”
To compound the Bush campaign’s politicizing of this national tragedy, the President has set the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York City to fall one week before the anniversary of 9/11.
