While President Joe Biden asked Americans to stand with him after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 he prefers that the speech be left to others.
Mexico City (proces.com.mx). US President Joe Biden paid tribute to three places where terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 were committed on Saturday.
Biden, however, did not speak at the three events, but he allowed others to speak.
Biden was silent, and then he wiped away his tears during the memorial ceremony at the World Trade Center Twin Towers site. Two hijacked terrorist planes brought down the World Trade Center Twin Towers site.
He then comforted his family gathered in the countryside near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where passengers shot down the extremists’ plane to Washington.
Biden and his spouse paid their respects at the Pentagon, where the fourth plane was hijacked 20-years ago.
Biden spoke the only time that day and praised the comments made by George W. Bush during the attack. Bush was accused of retaliating to the attack in Afghanistan.
Biden stated, “Bush gave an excellent speech today. It’s really interesting to me to see what people who were there that day thought of today’s resentment.
The Republican Party reminded Americans in Shanksville how they can unify in the face of unimaginable tragedies. Bush declared, “This America as I know” in stark contrast to the deep divisions in the country under Biden.
Bush said, “In this day and age of trial and sadness in America, I have seen millions unite to support one another and hold hands with our neighbor.”
Later, he lamented that “most of our politics has been a stark appeal to anger, fear and resentment.”
Biden was accompanied by Bill Clinton and Barack Obama in New York to read names of almost 3,000 victims.
Biden also visited a fire station where he defended withdrawal and ultimately evacuated more that 110,000 Americans and their allies via large-scale airlift.
“Can Al Qaeda come back? Yes. It’s already there, but guess what?” Biden stated. What strategy is it? What strategy do you use? Let’s get on with it!
Biden spoke on Friday night about the “real sense” of national unity that emerged following the attack. It was embodied by “heroism everywhere in unexpected and unanticipated places.”
“This is for me the core lesson of September 11,” he stated. “Unity is the greatest strength.”
The former President Donald Trump went to New York City’s Fire Station and Police Stations, complaining about Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan.
