(09/09/10) BROOKLYN - A Florida pastor's plan to hold a Quran-burning protest on the anniversary of the Sept. 11th attacks has been canceled.
The cancellation comes after pleas from Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, General David Patreus and even President Barack Obama. Clinton called his plans distasteful and said the move could be dangerous for U.S. troops.
President Obama also spoke out and warned that it would be a "recruitment" bonanza for al-Qaida if the church continued with its plan.
Rev. Terry Jones canceled the plans around 5p.m. today.
