A piece of the landing gear believed to have belonged to one of the airplanes that hit the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2011 was recovered in New York City on Friday.

The part was found between two buildings during an inspection for the site of an Islamic community center, which is going to be built three blocks from ground zero, ABC News reports. The part “includes a clearly visible Boeing identification number,” police announced in a statement. The scene is now being secured by the NYPD and pending a health and safety evaluation the soil could be examined for human remains.

    Was this just now found to make certain we haven’t forgotten how to FEAR in America? Well over a year after Bin Laden’s death and a decade since 9/11, American citizens are still blindly allowing their civil liberties to be taken away one piece of legislation at a time in the naming of fighting terrorism. Even our own citizens can be detained and tortured without trial. What difference did it make killing Bin Laden and Hussein if nothing has changed? You can read much more about living in this Orwellian society of fear and see my visual response to these measures on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/09/living-in-society-of-fear-ten-years.html
