President Obama Visits Ground Zero Today
New York City will get a visit by our President today as he is set to meet with the people affected by the 9/11 attacks just days after the death of Osama bin Laden.
At some point today President Barack Obama will touch down in New York City days after the US military finally took out Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. It will be a big moment for the City, the people and the President. He is expected to meet with the families affected by the attacks and the rescue workers that were involved during that fateful day in 2001.
The visit comes just a day after the President said that he would not be making the photos of bin Laden’s dead body available to the public in an effort to not outrage the radical Muslim community. The response to the President’s decision to not let people see the photos has been split for the most part. Some still want to see photos for proof and others don’t feel it necessary. His visit isn’t going to be for fanfare but more an emotional visit. He did extend an invite to former President George W. Bush to accompany him to Ground Zero, but he declined. Bush has remained out of the public eye since leaving office in 2008 and wants things to remain that way, but did call it a great day for America.
