Americans marked the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks Tuesday in familiar but subdued ceremonies that put grieving families ahead of politicians and suggested it's time to move on after a decade of remembrance.
The Sept. 11 anniversary ceremony at ground zero has been stripped of politicians this year. For the first time, elected officials won't speak Tuesday at an occasion that has allowed them a solemn turn in the spotlight. The change was made in the name of sidelining politics, but some have rapped it as a political move in itself.

Obama addressed families who have watched and wondered for nearly a decade whether the government would track down its most infamous enemy. On this special ground, Obama never mentioned bin Laden's name.
Joyous at the release of a decade's frustration, Americans streamed to the site of the World Trade Center, the gates of the White House and smaller but no less jubilant gatherings across the nation to celebrate the death of Osama bin Laden — cheering, waving flags and belting the national anthem.
Reviled in the West as the personification of evil, bin Laden was admired and even revered by some fellow Muslims who
embraced his vision of unending jihad against the United States and Arab
governments he deemed as infidels. Open the article then scroll to the bottom to see video reports of the death of Osama bin Laden.
After a last-minute compromise, the Senate passed legislation today to provide up to $4.2 billion in new aid to survivors of the September 2001 terrorism attack on the World Trade Center and responders who became ill working in its ruins.
