Observances are planned today in New York City, Washington DC, and Pennsylvania to remember the almost 3,000 people who were killed on September 11, 2001.

A ceremony at the national September 11th Memorial and Museum in lower Manhattan will include six moments of silence -- to mark the times that each plane hit the towers, twice to mark the time when each tower fell and to mark the moments of the attacks on the Pentagon and Flight 93.

At the White House, the President and First Lady will gather on the South Lawn of the White House to observe a moment of silence there.

In Shanksville, Pennsylvania, a new visitors center for the Flight 93 National Memorial opened this week and will hold an observance as well.

Former Deputy CIA Director Michael Morell was with President George W. Bush when the tragedy happened, and shared his experience with Fox News Radio's Tonya J. Powers:

President Bush was in Florida on September 11, 2001, visiting students at Booker Elementary School.

Former CIA Deputy Director Morell told me they were in the motorcade when the first plane struck.

(Morell) "And all of us, including the President, at that moment, thought that this must have been an accident."

But when the second tower was hit, they knew it was no accident.

(Morell) "We were all standing in the classroom next door watching it, and that's when Andy Card went in and told him, you know, we were at war. The nation was under attack."

The President asked him who was responsible... His answer?

(Morell) "I would bet every dollar I have, I would bet my children's future, that this was Usama bin Laden and al Qaeda."
