resident Obama and Mitt Romney are steering clear of politics on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, with both candidates temporarily taking down their negative ads on Tuesday. Obama has scheduled a moment of silence at the White House and a visit to the Pentagon, the target of one of four planes that al Qaeda hijacked during the brazen attacks in 2001. Romney will be in Nevada on Tuesday to address the National Guard, whose members were sent abroad as part of the U.S. response to the attacks.
