"It was a very emotional night," said White House press secretary Tony Snow, who watched the movie with President Bush and relatives of some of the 40 passengers and crew members portrayed in the film. "It has a very powerful ending," Snow said Wednesday.

Ben Sliney reported to work in his new position as national operations manager at the Federal Aviation Administration's operations command center in Herndon, Va., on Sept. 11, 2001.
