9/11: The Day

The Day of the Attack

In observance of the 20th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, Teaching American History interviewed Michael Hurley, former CIA officer and member of the 9/11 Commission, to talk about the causes of the attacks, September 11th itself, and the fallout of that day.

Today’s episode focuses on the day itself: how it happened, how Americans and American leaders and governmental agencies responded, and how the stage was set for what would follow.
