At 9 a.m., ground zero had come to life: Hundreds of financial workers were crossing the skywalk clutching muffins and coffee, and construction workers milled around the site of the planned memorial to the victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack. In the commotion, you could almost miss the four forensic investigators at the southwest corner of the site. They zipped themselves into hooded white suits, strapped on goggles, and set about looking for body parts.

Workers recovered more human remains from several manholes as New York City began a new search for Sept. 11 victims. The search was ordered after the discovery of dozens of bones in an abandoned manhole last week. Utility and city officials on Saturday hand-removed material from other manholes after tearing into the pavement on a service road along the site's western edge. City officials said that about 15 more pieces of remains had been recovered.

A cross-shaped steel beam that survived the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on New York City's World Trade Center to become a symbol of hope was moved from ground zero to a nearby church, accompanied by victims' families, clergy and construction workers. The 2-ton, 20-foot-high cross was placed on a flatbed truck for the three-block trip to its temporary home at St. Peter's Church, which served as a morgue for some Sept. 11 victims. The cross will eventually be incorporated into a memorial.

State Department officials acknowledged late Monday that Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was at a 2001 meeting where she was reportedly warned of the need to act on an impending terrorist threat to the United States. They said she met with then-CIA Director George J. Tenet on or around July 10. A new book by Bob Woodward says she brushed off Tenet's warning at that session. Earlier on Monday, Rice rejected the book's suggestion as "incomprehensible."

A Pentagon report rejects the idea that intelligence gathered by a secret military unit could have been used to stop the Sept. 11 hijackings. The Pentagon inspector general's office said that a review of records from the unit, known as "Able Danger," found no evidence it had identified ringleader Mohamed Atta or any other terrorist who participated in the 2001 attacks. The report was ordered after the assertion last year that the unit had identified four of the 19 hijackers in 2000.

It's a truism that the world of Sept. 10, 2001, is gone, vaporized in the attacks of the next day. But the world of Sept. 12 is gone too. In the aftermath of Sept. 11, Americans came together in shock and sorrow and resolve. Members of Congress, from both parties, symbolized that powerful connection when they stood on the Capitol steps and sang "God Bless America" hours after the attacks. Last week, on the fifth anniversary of Sept. 11, they tried that again. Not that many legislators showed up.

Five years ago, this date -- September the 11th -- was seared into America's memory. Nineteen men attacked us with a barbarity unequaled in our history. They murdered people of all colors, creeds, and nationalities -- and made war upon the entire free world. Since that day, America and her allies have taken the offensive in a war unlike any we have fought before. Today, we are safer, but we are not yet safe. * The war against this enemy is more than a military conflict.
