  Original Published: 9/11/2013 Moments of silence will be held Wednesday in memory of the people who died in the terror attack on September 11, 2001. As the tributes take place, Andrew Spencer reports the president has alluded to threats that the United States continues to face. Overnight, two spotlights on the New York City skyline honor the nearly 3,000 people who died in the terror attacks 12 years ago. "I will always remember walking through lower Manhattan on the day after those attacks," says Hillary Clinton, former U.S. Secretary of State. "The air was acrid. The thick smoke made it hard to breathe." A lot of work has happened in the years since. Earthcam released this time-lapsed video showing the construction at One World Trade Center between October 2004 and September of this year. The tower's completion is expected early next year. In Pennsylvania, officials broke ground on a new visitor's center near the memorial for the victims of United Airlines Flight 93, which hijackers crashed near Shanksville, apparently as passengers and crew members fought back. Services Wednesday at both sites, and at the Pentagon, will pay tribute to the 2,977 people who dies in those attacks. Meanwhile, President Barack Obama deals with what he calls another threat to national security, Syria's use of chemical weapons, a proposal to respond with U.S. military strikes. "Many of you have asked, 'Won't this put us on a slippery slope to antoher war?' One man wrote to me, 'We are still recovering from our war in Iraq,' A veteran put it more bluntly: 'This nation is sick and tired of war.'" The president says Assad's regime cannot seriously threaten the U.S. military. "Any other retaliation they might seek is in line with threats that we face every day."
