9/11 happened 16 years ago.
Two hijacked planes attacked the twin towers in New York on September 11, 2001.
At 8:46 a.m. the first plane hijacked by Al-Qaeda terrorists struck the North Tower. The second hijacked plane struck seventeen minutes later at 9:03 a.m. hitting the South Tower. Others who were trapped in the floors above the plane crash resorted to suicide by jumping off the building. Shortly afterwards one tower after another collapsed killing thousands.
2,983 people were killed in the horrific attacks on September 11.
This will be a day all of us will never forget.
Osama Bin Laden claimed responsibility for the September 11 attacks and a ten year manhunt began.
While President Obama was in office he was able to strategize with the US Navy SEALs and they killed Osama Bin Laden on May 2, 2011 in Pakistan.
