Remembering the September 11 attacks

Remembering the September 11 attacks”

A third plane crashed into the Pentagon and still another crashed in a field in Pennsylvania when the passengers overtook and fought with terrorists onboard.

American Airlines Flight 11 (traveling from Boston to Los Angeles) struck the north tower of the World Trade Center in New York City. It is believed the intended target of Flight 93 was either the White House or the Capitol Building. Conspiracy theorists have claimed over the years that the United States government was involved in the attacks.

Today marks the somber occasion of the 16th anniversary of the attacks on September 11, 2001.

Within an hour and 42 minutes, both 110-story towers collapsed, with debris and the resulting fires causing partial or complete collapse of all other buildings in the World Trade Center complex.

Speaking about the attack, the future USA leader spoke of his "devastation" at the horrific terror attacks while praising the incredible work of emergency services.

September 11, 2001, is remembered by most as the day Americans saw the true face of terrorism.
