Biden used the phrase to remember the nearly 3,000 people who lost their lives ago 17 years, when a group of al Qaeda terrorists hijacked four planes: two of them were crashed into the World Trade Center in New York; the third hit the Pentagon in Virginia; and the fourth crashed into an open field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after a passenger riot. “What was destroyed, we repair. What was threatened, we strengthen,” the president said during a speech in front of the Department of Defense headquarters to recall the 93 people who lost their lives in the attack on the Pentagon.
