White House Unveils Plans for September 11 Anniversary Commemorations

President Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, and Vice President Joe Biden will spend September 10 and 11 at the scene of the 2001 attacks as the nation commemorates the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks this fall.

Obama and the first lady will attend commemoration ceremonies in lower Manhattan, Shanksville, Pa., and the Pentagon, the three sites where the hijacked jetliners crashed on September 11, 2001. The events “underscore the strength, resilience, and unity of the American people,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said.

 

Biden will travel to Shanksville on September 10 to help dedicate the memorial of the jetliner that crashed there, Carney said.
