Barack Obama Will Visit Ground Zero on Thursday
President Barack Obama will be in New York City on Thursday to visit Ground Zero, where Osama Bin Laden's September 11 attack brought down the World Trade Center towers almost ten years ago. Though no schedule for the trip has been announced, New York 1 confirms that Obama will meet with families of September 11 victims at the hallowed site in the wake of Sunday's raid in Pakistan, which killed Bin Laden after years of hunting by U.S. forces.
