The New York Transit authority approves bus ad with burning twin towers

The New York City transit agency approved a bus advertisment that depicts a plane flying toward the World Trade Center towers as they burn along with a rendering of the proposed mosque near Ground Zero. Or rather a totally pulled out of their arse idea of what the former Burlington coat factory will look like, when it's 100 stories taller and gleaming white.

The ad was paid for by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, an organization that opposes radical Islamic influence in the United States. The group's executive director says she doesn't find the ad offensive. He wouldn't though.

It's worth noting here, that there used to be a muslim prayer room in the Twin Towers.
