9/11 Truther vandalizes Statue of Liberty-inspiring Delacroix painting at the Louvre
A visitor to the Louvre’s newest extension, in northern France, has been detained after scrawling an inscription in marker on the famed canvas of Eugene Delacroix Liberty Leading the People.
According to Le Figaro newspaper, the woman wrote “AE911″ near the bottom of the canvas. The inscription stands for “Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth,” a group of individuals who believe George W. Bush is responsible for the collapse of the Twin Towrs in New York City on Sept. 11, 2001. The group comprises architects, engineers and demolition experts who believe there is empirical evidence to suggest 9/11 was an inside job.
The 28-year-old woman was immediately seized by a guard and another visitor, then handed over to police, according to a statement from the Louvre-Lens on Friday. It said the painting should be easily cleaned.
