Yesterday, the Obama administration had the road to the #IwoJimaMemorial barricaded to prevent any entry to the site by vehicle... today, there's a happy ending:

Iwo Jima Memorial Closed, Barricades Erected (Update: Vets Break Through) - Daniel Halper/Weekly Standard

Another open-air memorial in the Washington area is closed and barricaded off: the Iwo Jima Memorial, just across the bridge from D.C. in Rosslyn, Virginia.

"There has been no coverage of Iwo Jima being closed and it is a routine stop for Honor Flight visitors."

WEEKLY STANDARD UPDATE: I'm told, "The Syracuse Honor Flight just knocked down the barrier and a couple hundred of them are at the Memorial now."

If the Japanese at Iwo Jima couldn't stop them, well...
