The Heat: 9/11 Anniversary and U.S. wars

12 Sep 2020 CGTN America

Nineteen year ago, on September 11th 2001, Al-Qaeda terrorists flew planes into the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington. Almost 3,000 people were killed.  Americans marked the solemn occasion on Friday with ceremonies. President Trump was in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where Flight 93 crashed after passengers confronted its hijackers.  And his presidential opponent Joe Biden was in New York at the site of the World Trade Center.  Meanwhile, the impact of the attacks and the U.S. war on terror that followed is still being felt also two decades later.

To discuss:

  • Tony Shaffer is president of the London Center for Policy Research.
  • Omar Samad served as the Afghan Ambassador to France and Canada and is a non-resident senior fellow with the Atlantic Council.
  • Edmund Ghareeb is a Middle East scholar and analyst
  • Brian Becker is the Executive Director of the ANSWER coalition.
