It’s been 20 years since that horrific morning when terrorist attacks launched by al-Qaeda (not the Taliban) brought down the World Trade Center, attacked the Pentagon, and crashed a plane into a field in Shanksville, Pa.
The terrorist attacks “brought heightened awareness in Western countries to the threat posed by Islamist extremism and sparked the George W. Bush administration’s ‘war on terror,’ including costly conflicts in Afghanistan and the Middle East and new systems of widespread government surveillance.”
Please take a few moments to reflect on this solemn day and never forget.
