Breaking Tradition: Biden Chooses Alaska to Observe 9/11 Anniversary

President Biden has chosen to observe the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in Alaska, breaking from tradition and sparking controversy. This marks the first time since the attacks in 2001 that a sitting president has not commemorated the occasion at the White House or any of the attack sites in New York City, northern Virginia, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Historically, presidents have honored the victims of the 9/11 attacks by visiting one of the three attack sites. However, this year, President Biden will travel to a military base in Alaska to mark the 22nd anniversary of the attacks.

Conservatives have criticized this decision, viewing it as a departure from the solemn tradition of honoring the victims at the sites where they lost their lives.

The White House has stated that President Biden’s trip to Alaska will follow a visit to Vietnam, where he is expected to discuss technological innovation and climate change with Vietnamese leaders.

While President Biden is in Alaska, Vice President Kamala Harris and Second Gentleman Doug Emhoff will attend a commemoration ceremony in New York City, and First Lady Jill Biden will lay a wreath at the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial in Arlington, Virginia.

This decision comes amid criticism of the Biden administration’s handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal and the recent terrorist attack at the Kabul airport.

As the nation remembers the tragic events of 9/11, President Biden’s choice to observe the anniversary in Alaska has raised questions and stirred debate.
