Obama to visit Sept. 11 sites to mark 10 years

WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama will visit all three sites of the Sept. 11 plane crashes on the 10-year anniversary of the al-Qaida attacks next month, the White House said on Tuesday.
"The president will participate in commemorations at each of the three locations where we lost so many loved ones: In Lower Manhattan, in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and at the Pentagon in northern Virginia," White House spokesman Jay Carney told a news briefing.
"Throughout the day he will pay tribute to those we lost, honor the Americans who responded on that day and who served in harm's way over the last decade," Carney said.
