NEW YORK (AP) — President Barack Obama is telling New York police officers “’there are still going to be threats out there,” alluding to the death of Osama bin Laden. Of the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack that bin Laden masterminded, he says: “We keep them in our hearts. We haven’t forgotten.”
Obama made his remarks today at a lower Manhattan police station, the second stop of his tour of 9/11 New York landmarks.
The First Precinct Police Station, which covers the World Trade Center area, did not lose any officers on 9/11 but one of its officers was buried under some rubble and survived.
Obama told the officers they will always have an entire country behind them.
