Yesterday, Saturday, US President Joe Biden visited the Volunteer Fire Department in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, on the anniversary of the September 11 attacks, and spoke briefly to reporters.

In his remarks, Joe Biden said: “It’s a difficult day for me and for everyone who has lost someone.”

Biden praised a group of passengers on United Airlines Flight 93, who took control of the cockpit and redirected the plane to an empty field in Pennsylvania, saying it was “real heroism.”

Biden touched on the attempt by some of the plane’s passengers to regain control of the al-Qaeda militants who hijacked it as part of the attacks, before it crashed near Shanksville, praising the statements of former President George W. Bush, earlier in the memorial for Flight 93.

“I think President Bush gave a really good speech today, about who we are, we’re not — the core of who we are is undivided, it’s just an idea, I don’t know how to explain that,” Biden explained.

The US president defended his administration’s handling of the withdrawal from Afghanistan, saying: “It’s hard to explain to anyone, how do you get out?”

He asked, “If I had told anyone that we were going to spend $300 million a day for twenty years trying to unite the country, after we brought in bin Laden, after al-Qaeda was eliminated there — can al-Qaeda come back? Yeah, but guess what, she’s already gone back to other places.”

Joe Biden continued: “What is the strategy? Wherever the base is, we will invade it and the troops will stay there? Let’s go!”.
