Friday, September 09, 2011

Of the many stunning images taken on September 11, 2001 that have become permanently seared into the American psyche, the image of President George W. Bush being told the nation was under attack while in front of a classroom full of children is among the most striking. The man who whispered "America is under attack" into the president's ear was his chief of staff, Andrew Card. Card spoke about his experience that day with the BBC's Mark Mandell.

Eric Leinung: No Roadmap for Recovery

Wednesday, September 07, 2011

WNYC

Eric Leinung was 12 when his big brother, Paul, was killed. He worked on the 100th floor of the World Trade Center and didn't make it out on September 11, 2001. When adolescents are faced with a traumatic event, research shows that they often vent their feelings through aggression and rage. In WNYC's special Living 9/11, and in his full Radio Rookies story, Eric tells how he spent his teen years fighting — sometimes physically — with his mom.  And how, 10 years after the Twin Towers collapsed, he and his family have found a way through their loss. They live in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn.

'Top Secret America': The Hidden Side of Government After 9/11

Tuesday, September 06, 2011

We're talking about the tenth anniversary of 9/11 all this week. And while we’re remembering those we’ve lost, we’re also analyzing the tragedy's aftermath. A new Frontline documentary and investigative book chronicle the proliferation of covert operations and government organizations that began cropping up in the wake of 9/11. Funding for counter-terrorism programs grew exponentially after 9/11. In the documentary, then-White House counter terrorism czar Richard Clarke remembers: "President Bush said to us, in the basement of the White House on the night of 9/11, you have everything you need. And that was true, because as soon as we went to the Congress, they said 'just tell us what you need.' Blank check."
