Order to Close WWII Memorial Came from Obama Administration, Park Svc. Says

National Park Service Spokesman Carol Johnson told reporters today that the orders to close the the World War II memorial in Washington, DC during the government shutdown came from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), which answers directly to the Obama Administration.

"O.M.B (Office of Budget Management) sends everything down to the other agencies," said Johnson.

"We are part of Interior. Interior gives our instructions."

Johnson also steadfastly evaded questions about whether veterans who cross the barricades to visit the memorial would be arrested.
