The U.S. is commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, the deadliest terror strike ever on U.S. soil. The milestone anniversary arrives under the pall of a pandemic and in the shadow of a frantic withdrawal from Afghanistan .
NEW YORK (AP) — Twenty years ago, the 11th of September dawned as just a date. By midnight, it was 9/11, the staggering starting point for a new era of terror, war, politics, patriotism and tragedy.
“It’s hard because you hoped that this would just be a different time and a different world. But sometimes history starts to repeat itself and not in the best of ways,” said Thea Trinidad, who lost her father in the attacks and has signed up to read victims’ names at the ceremony at ground zero in New York.

But the president also spotlighted what he called the “central lesson” of Sept. 11: “that at our most vulnerable ... unity is our greatest strength.”Former President George W. Bush, the nation’s leader on 9/11, is due at the Pennsylvania memorial and his successor, Barack Obama, at ground zero.

And mass displacement of populations. How embarrassing for you all to let those Afghani people love Pakistan Katelyn27xo One terrorist attack on their own soil... aren't they lucky that - unlike other nations, ours included - they don't have different anniversaries every other day?

How the U.S. has changed in 20 years since 9/11 attackHistorian Joanne Freeman, Eugene Robinson and Jonathan Alter join Jonathan Capehart to discuss what’s happened to our politics and culture in the 20 years since the country unified after the attack on September 11, but is fiercely divided today in the face of a pandemic and the violent attack at the Capitol on January 6. Racist Europeans should have never been allowed to enter the USA. Yeah they got trump It took so long to get this Monument of these traitors of these ignorant people who was fighting to keep other human beings in bandage
About the same amount of dead as one month of US car traffic or one month of US gun violence. My thoughts and prayers go to the families who lost loved ones on this 20th anniversary of the terror attacks in NewYorkCity and the PENTAGON and also Shanksville, Pennsylvania.I may live on the otherside of the pond in the UK but I still feel your loss.🇺🇲🇬🇧
would be devastating to see a man going to shed crocodile tears on the memory of thousands of innocent victims of 9/11 in NY after handing out keys off to the perpetuator of this sin, that too over throwing democratically elected govt in Afhanistan😰 Inside job. What happened after 9/11 was a catastrophe - but let's pause, and remember, at this time for all those who died in NYC, Washington DC and Pensylvania, their families and friends and those who escaped and continue to suffer to this day. We need to give love xxx
And all 3 intentionally created When the dust finally settles, I don’t know what we’ll see. But at least it won’t be war. And an increase in coast-to-coast environmental catastrophes.
20 years after 9/11, the ‘War on Terror’ has brought the US only defeatThe “War on Terror” achieved nothing but abject defeat for its main sponsor, the United States, and led it into global retreat and growing irrelevance Opinion | DrTalAbdulrazaq DrTalAbdulrazaq people are sacrificed for one purpose
Thank Republicans for the Afghanistan War and the continued Pandemic! Thanks Trump Publicans! The mother of all false flags What happened to the crisis actors🤦♂️ NO ATTACKS: WE DID IT TO OURSELVES: 9/11 Remembered: FALSE FLAG No airplane can cause a demolition. SEEING IS BELIEVING: Bin Laden/Taliban = 3,000 Trump/Republicans = 650,000
It was not frantic. Calm down. Only your headline is. Wishing the US people who are so fantastic peace and tranquility on this sad day. The 911 attack was aimed at people of all faiths and was an attack on liberal democracy. May those who died rest in peace and their families have some closure. ALLENDE!

U.S. deficit hawks in exile 20 years after 9/11U.S. deficit hawks have become a relic since Sept. 11, 2001. Over the last 20 years, federal debt held by the public grew by nearly seven times to more than $22 trillion. Stimulus spending during several crises was needed, but financial discipline didn’t follow. A race to please voters ensures that trend will continue. This tweet corrects a previous version with extraneous words at the start stating 'second tweet.' It also replaces an illustration with chart. The previous version of this tweet has been deleted.
2977 innocent people were killed by the terrorists on this day at The WTC. 2,327,876 innocent Muslims were killed by the American forces since 9/11. Just wondering who are the real terrorists ? Who know what will happen in another 20 years.. “Frantic withdrawal”. Is that the current official AP terminology?
Time to move on. Far too many people used this horrific event as an excuse to inflict harm on others. I'm looking at you, George W Bush. the American should also commemorate for hundred and thousands innocent humans they killed in pursuance of perpetrators of 9/11 attacks, who are yet to be discovered.
Long runs the fox.

20 years later, legal case against accused 9/11 mastermind grinds onThe day before the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, a pretrial hearing against five accused orchestrators was held Friday with none of them present. BS! The real perpetrators are free in tel aviv, london, washington! To pull this false flag you needed a huge organization who had authority over the air force, home land security, fbi!
