Deal led a brief memorial ceremony at the state Capitol Friday, flanked by Georgia's Chief Justice Carol Hunstein and Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle.

Deal also paid tribute to members of the military that have served in the wars that have taken place since the attacks on New York and Washington.

Deal did not speak to reporters. Spokesman Brian Robinson said the state is taking increased security precautions due to the anniversary, but he said there has been no mention of Georgia as a potential target.
