Twin Towers scrap steel becomes warship

From Stars and Stripes...

From rubble to avenging angel: The U.S. Navy is using steel from the World Trade Center in a new ship, according to the Navy.

Ten tons of steel from the World Trade Center’s twin towers will be used in the construction of the USS New York, according to a Navy official.

The San Antonio-class amphibious transport dock is slated to be commissioned in 2008.

“USS New York will ensure that all New Yorkers and the world will never forget the evil attacks of September 11, and the courage and compassion New Yorkers showed in response to terror,” said New York Gov. George Pataki at the ship’s 2002 naming.

Personally I think it would have been more fitting to have used the steel in the casings for bombs to be shot at terrorist strongholds, but a warship will do. It also would have been cool if they'd dubbed the project, “Jihad This!!”
