U.S. Sen. Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) today released the following statement on the anniversary of the September, 11, 2001, terrorist attacks:
"Eleven years ago our nation was attacked by people who detest our freedom, tolerance and values. And, just as previous generations of Americans have done before us, we united against those forces of oppression and hatred to defend the way of life we all cherish. Every American owes a debt of gratitude to our men and women in uniform who answered the call of duty and have protected us since that dark day. Because of their dedication, America has once again proved that liberty will triumph over evil."
