Nation Grieves For 9/11 Attack Victims

The moment of silence was also observed at the World Trade Center in NY, the Pentagon and a field near Shanksville, Pa., where one of three planes hijacked by Islamic militants crashed out of a almost cloudless early-autumn sky. "Second, there is no actionable, credible threat to the United States right now".

The president laid a wreath at the Pentagon Memorial and held a moment of silence for all of the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

In his remarks, the president vowed that the USA would never relent in its fight against the radical Islamic ideology behind the attacks, recognizing that America is still at war in Afghanistan and fighting terrorist around the globe. "When Americans are in need, Americans pull together - and we are one country".

"Our nation rallied together as one for while we had never asked for this fight, we are steadfastly comitted to seeing it through as president Trump has made it clear", said Mattis.

"Because of the heroes on Flight 93, I and many others were able to return home from the U.S. Capitol that day", said Pence, who was a first-term congressman in '01. "And we will never, ever yield", Trump continued.

"Maybe then we can put away our disagreements and become one country again".

"The [sanctified] grounds on which we stand today are a monument to our national unity and to our strength", Trump said. "And they support our courageous troops all around the world". Trump also previously boasted he'd predicted the attack in his book "The America We Deserve".

They will attend a memorial ceremony at the Pentagon later on Monday morning, the Washington Post reported.

"Terrorists tried to break our resolve", he said.

"Where they left a mark with fire and rubble Americans defiantly raise the stars and stripes".

"American forces are relentlessly pursuing and destroying the enemies all civilized people, ensuring - these are awful, terrible enemies. As a nation, we pray that the love of God and the comfort of knowing that those who perished are forever remembered brings them peace and gives them courage".
