"They have politicized Ground Zero"

"Ground Zero" originally meant the surface directly below or above the point at which a nuclear explosion takes place. But now "Ground Zero" often refers to the site of the collapsed World Trade Center or more recently refers to the disastrous site damaged by the Hurricane Katrina. "Politicize" means "give a political character". So your sentence would mean "They have given a political character to the storm victims in New Orleans."

Or possibly the World Trade Center site - I think they recently revealed plans for a monument that some people found offensive.

Your guess is right and i quote it from a newspaper writing about a new building located on the old WTCs in 2009.

Thanks for Paco's explanation but i still can't get the real meaning. Would you or Paco elaborate it again.

Thx
