The National Park Service was trying to determine whether an oily substance found late last week on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial was the result of vandalism or an accident.
The material, which appeared to be gone yesterday, was noticed along the paving stones and the bottom of some of the panels and reported to U.S. Park Police on Friday evening, Park Service spokesman Bill Line said.
He said that cleaning crews worked over the weekend to remove the substance and that the Park Service is trying to determine what it was. “Until this investigation is completed, it is premature to speculate whether any intentional act was committed,” Line said.
I wonder if we know anyone who spews oily substances. Oh wait:
So the substance is now “potent and corrosive,” such that “huge swaths of the wall have been defaced” [if you photographed them at such an angle that patches of the now-removed oil were, before being wiped off, able to reflect light differently than the bare stone]? This must be the work of those anti-war radicals who are always trying to destroy our national monuments just in time for Gathering of Eagles demonstrations.

Oh dear G_D!
They KNEW that they could deface it when we weren’t there!
But how could someone stoop so low…
I have no words to describe my anger at this moment!
We need this story to hit the airwaves big time! Call up your TV and Talk Radio Stations….
Make it known to the world the extent of the vitriolic bile that spews from the left! See how the sacrifice of brave men and women for their freedom means nothing to them!
And if the Park Service has known about this since Friday and are covering it up…they know who did it…they must be trying to keep this situation mum cause they know the reaction they will get.
I will not tolerate these insolent whelps any more…I am bringing everyone I know to the 15th and telling everyone I know about what happened!
THE WORDS AND DEEDS OF ANSWER AND THEIR SYCOPHANTS MUST BE SPREAD! EAGLES, TELL EVERYONE ABOUT THIS TRAVESTY!
COME HELL OR HIGH WATER I WILL BE THERE ON THE 15TH!
Attendance figures will be wildly falsified, so bring reversible jackets, extra hats, and removable facial hair.
