Bush, Sept. 11 Family Member Remember Attacks

Former President George W. Bush, who led the country at the time, reads a quotation or poem to mark the attacks. The remarks are followed by those of Peter Negron, who was 11 when his father, also named Peter, died in the collapse of World Trade Center. Audie Cornish then talks to NPR's Tom Gjelten who was in the Pentagon when American Airlines flight 77 struck the building. She then talks to Steve Coll, president of the New America Foundation and a writer for the New Yorker, for his analysis.
