WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is hailing what it means to be an American while remembering the nearly 3,000 people who were killed in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Obama says a lot has changed in the 15 years since 9/11, but the core values and resilience that define and sustains Americans have not.

In his weekly radio and internet address, delivered on the eve of the anniversary, Obama says terrorists will never defeat the United States. He says Americans will never give in to fear.

Nearly 3,000 people were killed in New York City, Pennsylvania and at the Pentagon during attacks carried out by the al-Qaida terrorist group.

Al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden was killed by U.S. forces in Pakistan during a May 2011 raid authorized by Obama.

    This Goofball has no idea what it’s like to be an American. He is the most unpatriotic, despicable, race baiting president this country has ever had!

    Remember Michelle saying when obama became potus? “for the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.” “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m really proud of my country, and not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change.” yup. I will never forget that. This was 2008, AFTER obviously 9/11. And she was proud for the 1st time about her country, ever.

    I’m suprised he’s not apologizing to Saudi Arabia for an American plane and buildings taking the lives of several of their citizens or blaming the police and fire department for not evacuating the buildings quick enough.

    Can we the taxpayers give Obama one more parting gift? How about a one way ticket out of this country to a place of his choice.
