9/11 Souvenirs

Turns out even Donald Rumsfeld himself picked up a souvenir or two from the rubble of 9/11. This thorough AP article names several other government officials (mostly FBI) who also improperly retrieved or requested souvenirs. Some retrievals (a piece of wreckage for an exhibit on hate crimes) seem legitimate, while others (security patches torn from WTC guards' shirts) don't.

The AP was kind enough to link to excerpts from a memo [PDF] it obtained detailing who took what.
