Biden and Harris To Visit Flight 93 Memorial on 9/11

President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will travel to the Flight 93 Memorial near Shanksville on September 11. 

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Harris is scheduled to attend the observance ceremony, while Biden will visit the site later in the day. According to a release from the White House Press Office, the President and First Lady “will honor and memorialize the lives lost 20 years ago with travel to all three sites of the 9/11 attacks: New York City, New York, Shanksville, Pennsylvania and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia.”

Former President George W. Bush will deliver the keynote address at the annual September 11 Observance at Flight 93 National Memorial near Shanksville to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of 9/11. 

In addition to Bush delivering the keynote address, WTAE reports that Interior Secretary Deb Haaland; Gov. Tom Wolf; Capt. David Kurtz, of the USS Somerset; and Gordon Felt, whose brother, Edward was a passenger on Flight 93 are also scheduled to speak. 

The Hill reports that the memorial “will be closed to the public during the observance ceremony due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but will be available for families of passengers who were on the flight.”

According to the National Park Service’s website, the ceremonies will begin at 9:45 am on Saturday, September 11. At 10:03 am, names of the 40 passengers and crew members who died in the crash, will be read. 

Last year’s ceremony included a speech from then-President Donald Trump, while Biden visited the site and laid a wreath at the memorial and met with families, according to the Associated Press

    9/11 was an inside job. Of course old Joe is there to witness a monument of his handiwork. So many Americans died just because Zionist lobbyists needed their financial interests protected in the middle East. This can never happen again!

    Trump probably would have invited MBS to Shanksville and scheduled a military parade.
