President Obama Pays Tribute To 9/11 Victims At Ground Zero

Obama Pays Respect At Ground Zero

The President of the United States made a stop in NYC to pay tribute to those who lost their lives during the terrible tragedy on 9/11.

He laid a wreath at the site of the World Trade Center, and at the foot of the Survivor Tree, which sustained damage during the attack but survived after being cleared of rubble.

Obama spoke to those who attended:

"This is a symbolic site of the extraordinary sacrifice that was made on that terrible day almost 10 years ago," Obama said, adding that bin Laden's death sent the message that "when we say we will never forget, we mean what we say."

"You're always going to have a president and an administration who has got your back."

"We did what we said we would do," Obama said. "We never forgot the tragedy. We have never forgotten the loss of life. We've never forgotten the courage of the NYPD."

He also visited a firehouse that lost 15 men that day. The highest number of one firehouse. He was joined by the brave who luckily survived.

The President visited in the wake of the successful operation that put an end to Osama Bin Laden — to pay his respects after such a long hunt, and a milestone achievement that has been a symbol of our effort to honor the lost by finding those responsible.

Everyone lost in the past decade will always, truly, be missed. Our hearts continually go out to those who have experienced the loss first hand.

    Yeah, he's really milking the lies by carrying a wreath in memory of those who died during 9/11. Never takes long for the dumbasses like you to show up on here, does it? Troll.

    Wha wha wha. We will not show the photo. We will not beat our chest. Then why in the hell are you at Ground Zero spiking the football? Did he do a little endzone dance like Michomba did at that jail of a middle school.

    Help me understand how this progressive/marxist President thinks? He's against enhanced interrogation, but he supports, murder? What's the reasoning behind this?

    Debra Burlingame, the sister of Charles “Chic” Burlingame (pilot of the plane that crashed into the Pentagon) met with President Obama today, along with other families who were victims of 9/11. Burlingame said she confronted Obama about Attorney General Eric Holder prosecuting the men who interrogated KSM, which may have produced intelligence leading us to bin Laden.

    Burlingame describes the encounter with Obama: “As a former attorney I know you can’t tell the Attorney General what to do, he said, ‘No, I can’t.’ But I said ‘we — that shouldn’t stop you from giving your opinion. We wouldn’t be here today if they hadn’t done their jobs. Can’t you at least give them your opinion.’ And he said ‘no I won’t,’ and he turned around and walked away.”

    That shows very well how the collectivist leftist muslim asshat know as hussein obama feels about the soldiers and CIA agents, when his freakish dumbo ears and horrible little fuzz fro are not on tv.
