Former New York Gov. George Pataki told Newsmax TV on Tuesday, the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, he "can't help but feel proud" of the response despite the "horror of the attacks."
In an interview with "Newsmax Now" alongside former FBI counterrorism agent Jonathan Gilliam, Pataki said "it seems like it was last week" that the attack happened.
"That will never change, I don't think," he said. "Whenever I think of Sept. 11, I have two conflicting feelings, one of them is an enormous sense of loss, and just the horror of the attacks and the thousands of people, wonderful, innocent people who died. And you just have this tremendous sense of loss and sadness."

"I was down at Ground Zero this morning, and I think back to the tremendous courage with which New Yorkers, and really all Americans, responded with in every walk of life," Pataki continued.
"And you have this sense of pride that in the face of this unspeakable terror, there were people who ran into those towers. Of course, the firefighters and the EMTs and the police, but construction workers and just civilians from every walk of life, so you can’t help but feel proud that in this moment of horror, New Yorkers and Americans did what we should always do, and that is to come together and show courage that we're never going to bend in the face of this horrible terror.'
