The family members of one Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack victim were stunned and outraged during Wednesday’s name-reading ceremony in New York City when a girl at the podium, who was supposed to say their son’s name and move on, instead launched into a plea to President Obama about Syria.
She was supposed to simply say the name of the victim she claimed was her uncle, Sal Papasso Jr.
The girl, Brittney Cofresi, deviated from script with this, The New York Post reported: "President Obama, please do not bring us to another war."
