How long debate continues on the ground zero mosque I was given an exclusive tour.
Inside the 9/11 -- -- memorial site with the memorial to president Joseph Daniels.
Yesterday we showed you the first signs of life.
Trees from the three tech sites being planted around memorial park and the World Trade Center -- remnant try against recently installed.
We were given exclusive access to the area directly below the World Trade Center attack site.
And we filmed this never before seen footage take a look.
-- -- -- Stunning what is the.
So basically this is where the north tower stood at the very footprint when that tower was and we're building -- largest manmade waterfalls in the country in this is the a memorial itself.
The names of the victims who died in this building will be around the pools people will be of the common touch -- -- and bronze.
He walked off walk thirty feet and then disappeared through and avoid.
I was in the World Trade Center 1993.
When the bomb went off in the parking garage this is the footprints -- the north -- -- right there with -- event where with a bomb this is.
This is the footprint the -- was in the parking deck level so essentially.
It was beneath where we're standing now little bits out war between the two schools.
I've and that's you know -- reminder that this is the spot where these things happen -- that six people that died in 1993.
Their names walls of the on this memorial it's important to remember them as well what -- Joseph and now we're directly be need the memorial -- that right tell us about what's going on over here.
Exactly right here is beneath the north memorial pool.
This is where this fast paced about an acre -- -- -- the footprint of the towers.
All in this area here is where the historical exhibitions of the museum are going to be it's gonna preserve the history of what happened on that day for all the visitors that come here to learn about it.
And dug the hole is directly above us that they had a -- is that.
The plaza level seventy feet above us.
Since the -- dropped down about thirty feet it's about forty feet above where we're standing in all the pumps that are required to operate this these -- are right about that this is going to be memorial museum lawless area right exactly about a 120000.
Square foot all together we've got this base underneath the the pool.
The north pulled a similar space underneath -- apple.
This -- tell us about this wall -- wall right absolutely this is -- -- wall in this wall in the.
Aftermath of the attacks literally held back the Hudson River and without this wall standing here.
A disaster that was unimaginable would have been that much worse the entire lower Manhattan would have been flooded so this is the original story -- the visitors will get to -- Com and really feel -- part of the history of the day.
I remember this.
Thankfully no one of the big concerns and in the aftermath of that attack was whether that walls you know and you're saying it that -- -- -- The whole lower Manhattan might might flooding.
Absolutely the Hudson River would have flooded.
Lower Manhattan in this wall held and you don't like walls that are famous throughout history whether the western wall in Jerusalem we believe that this -- has that me.
Continue to be had been preserved intact the way it was.
And tell us about this big column in this Q what is done so within us inside this -- is the last column which is the last piece of -- -- be removed from the site and may thirtieth of 2002.
It's adorned with graffiti of remembrance from construction workers first responders fits in this box right now because we're keeping it protected as constructive.
Continues around it but when we -- museum the last probably proudly here in front of the slurry wall.
When -- some very dramatic stuff but very very real stuff -- say thank you very much don't appreciate your time.
I don't know -- the wall to -- back to Hudson River very very important wall and I remember distinctly when we are working I was actually working on the other side of that wall.
Say my prayers every data that wall held in dating and it's it's in real tribute.
We we reported earlier in the show we've heard reports of three up to three copycat preachers.
And protesters -- are not talking about burning the Quran in Wyoming Kansas and Tennessee Ross.
Weigh in on that.
You know what you look through history you look at the acquisition and the burning of books you look it -- -- not the Nazi Germany in the late thirties the burning of everything Jewish yeah.
You know -- books is not does not have a place in in the proper world in my opinion it decided ignorant -- -- of hatred.
And it just sort of very bad things to come in at first and then it was designed to protect not to offend.
And that's I think people are misinterpreting mark have you may come -- early.
That pressure burned books and then you burn people let's listen in Germany I had this this -- on an extremist this pastor or I.
I become a pastor -- he's he has no denomination he's got fifty people -- -- -- -- -- on FaceBook.
No -- should give him at any time -- day -- -- judges' -- a burn crosses the outlets -- -- dominant court I think you know ultimately do they have a right to do it absolutely we have First Amendment protections I don't think this is the proper message it's totally inappropriate it's not the way to go with -- be reconsidered and I think it incites hatred and violence and no real quickly only about fifteen seconds trust just because you have the right.
Doesn't mean that it's the right thing to do and that's why the mosque must be moved I would leave it right there -- Mondello thank you very much Andrew -- -- Mark -- -- -- -- a great job Barry show Rick Scott Aaronson.
