WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama said on Saturday the United States was stronger 10 years after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and Americans would "carry on" despite continued threats against their safety.

Marking Sunday’s 10th anniversary of the "9/11" attacks on New York, Washington and Pennsylvania, Obama noted that al Qaeda’s strength had been sapped by relentless U.S. efforts in the decade since the tragedy killed nearly 3,000 people.

"Thanks to the tireless efforts of our military personnel and our intelligence, law enforcement and homeland security professionals, there should be no doubt: today, America is stronger and al Qaeda is on the path to defeat," Obama said in his weekly radio and Internet address.
