In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama asks Americans to remember those who lost their lives as well as the loved ones they left behind — and honor the first-responders who risked their lives to help.
Obama says America has come back stronger and al-Qaida is on the path to defeat.
The president also notes that the 9/11 anniversary is being commemorated Tuesday by public service activities in communities around the country.
In the Republican address, Sen. John Barrasso (buh-RAS’-oh) of Wyoming criticizes Obama’s presidency and asserts the nation isn’t better off than it was four years ago under President Bush.
