Cuomo says he’s stepped up police presence and taken other precautions at sites considered potential terrorist targets, though there have been “no credible threats”.

The governor says it’s a day of “complex emotions” for New Yorkers.

“In one sense joy, because a major threat is gone, a murderer is stopped and justice is done,” said Cuomo, who says it’s also a day of reflection on how the events of September 11th, 2001 changed society.

“for all those who lived through the nightmare of 9/11 , horrific images are refreshed,” said Cuomo.

Cuomo says the threat of terrorism did not die with Bin Laden, and he expects to “fight this war” every day that he is governor.
