Washington: US President Barack Obama Thursday dedicated a Ground Zero museum commemorating the Sep 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the site of the collapsed World Trade Towers in New York, a media report said.


Obama, who also went around the National September 11 Memorial Museum with First Lady Michelle Obama, remarked that "nothing can ever break us, nothing can change who we are as Americans", New York Daily News reported.
