'Ground Zero' mosque halted

A New York City construction worker who witnessed the terrorist attacks on 9/11 is very pleased the proposed "Ground Zero Victory Mosque" project has been stopped dead in its tracks.

Recently The Associated Press reported that Daisy Khan, wife of Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf, said that they were "pursuing a new vision for the future." Khan and Rauf had a major role in founding the mosque that was to be built near "Ground Zero" in New York City, but were effectively fired from the organization in January by fellow founder Sharif El-Gamal.

Andy Sullivan is a lifelong New York City construction worker and founder of the 9/11 Hard Hat Pledge -- one of the groups working to prevent the construction of the mosque near where the World Trade Center once stood. He says despite El-Gamal's reported commitment to move forward with the project, it is going to be tough to do without Rauf.
