At Ground Zero
Days after the death of Osama bin Laden, President Obama visited Ground Zero in New York City today to proclaim, "When we say we will never forget, we mean what we say." One of the President's campaign promises was to hunt down and bring Bin Laden to justice.
The President laid a wreath at the National Sept. 11 Memorial at Ground Zero and met privately with family members of some 9/11 victims. Earlier, he visited Engine 54, Ladder 4, Battalion 9 (photo above), which lost 15 members on 9/11, and NYPD's First Precinct, whose members were first on the scene. To the firemen, Obama thanked them for their work and said they had a president who has "got your back."
