Obama at 9/11 museum: Terrorism can't break us


NEW YORK - President Barack Obama praised the new Sept. 11 museum on Thursday as "a sacred place of healing and of hope" that captures both the story and the spirit of heroism that followed the attacks.


The museum commemorates Sept. 11, 2001, when 19 al-Qaida hijackers crashed four airliners into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania. Nearly 3,000 people were killed in an attack that plunged the US into a decade of war in Afghanistan against al-Qaida's Taliban protectors. (AP)
