The White House has instructed government officials to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks by honoring the memory of those who died in the attacks and recalling other terrorist attacks around the world.
The New York Times reported Monday the White House distributed two sets of documents, one set for overseas allies and citizens and a second set underscoring what the U.S. government has done to prevent another attack on American soil.
Federal agencies received the second set of documents.
The White House sent the documents to shape both public events and official statements, according to the New York Times report.
“As we saw after 9/11, the strength of America has always been the character and compassion of our people,” President Barack Obama said during his weekly radio address. “So as we mark this solemn anniversary, let’s summon that spirit once more.”
