U.S. Marine Gen. John Allen, second left, the top commander of U.S. and coalition troops in Afghanistan observes a moment of silence during a ceremony marking the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, at NATO headquarter in Kabul, Afghanistan, Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2012. Gen. Allen said, "Today we remember the victims here in Afghanistan who have suffered so horribly at the hands of al-Qaida and the Taliban and other terrorists. Perhaps more significant to all of us at this ceremony, today we remember the precious soldiers and civilians of all nations lost in Afghanistan since that day of infamy in 2001."
