Defense Secretary Leon Panetta - Nobody Attacks US ‘and Gets Away With It’
Panetta: Nobody Attacks US ‘and Gets Away With It’

VOA - September 09, 2011
The existence of what U.S. officials say is a credible but unconfirmed terrorist threat is not changing President Obama’s plans to visit the Pentagon on the 9/11 anniversary. Commemoration events began at the Pentagon on Friday - under heightened security.
Under a drizzling rain, a large number of Pentagon employees gathered in the military headquarters’ courtyard to remember the day when hijackers slammed an American Airlines Boeing 757 into a side of the building.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta was among those attending a commemoration ceremony for employees and other innocent victims who perished when the airplane crashed into and destroyed part of the huge structure.
“Though the gaping hole in this building has long been repaired, there remains a gaping hole in our hearts," he said. "We still feel deeply the loss of 184 people who perished here that morning.”
