COPY-Nation marks six years since terror attacks

Associated Press - September 11, 2007 6:23 AM ET

Presidential politics loom over this September 11th more than any other anniversary of the attacks.

Firefighters in New York will share the podium with former mayor Rudy Giuliani, who many victims' families and firefighters say should not speak this year because he is running for president.

Democratic Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, who is seeking her party's presidential nomination, also plans to attend ceremonies in New York.

For the first time this year, a victim who did not die at the trade center will be recognized. The city has added the name of an attorney who died of lung disease five months after the attacks to its official list of victims.

President Bush is attending a private prayer service at St. John's Episcopal Church in Washington and will hold a moment of silence on the South Lawn of the White House.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates will lead observances at the Pentagon.
