Remembering 9/11: The Aftermath and The Comeback

It has been 11 years since the most tragic terrorist attacks rocked the nation on Sept. 11, 2001. Today is a day for honoring the heroes like the fire fighters, policemen, and everyday citizens that helped one another during that shocking event.

While the U.S. will never forget those who have fallen, the country has rebounded better than ever and more secure over the years. With the help of the TSA and Homeland Security, the nation has a new commitment to protecting the lives of American citizens at home.

There were many warning signs from the CIA that were ignored by the Bush administration, especially Sec. of State Condoleezza Rice, but in the aftermath the entire country was committed to hunting down those responsible and bringing them to justice.

Soon after the attacks, the U.S. determined that Osama Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda were the ones responsible for the terror and would soon be hunted down. On Oct. 7, the war in Afghanistan began on the terrorist organization and the Taliban who were protecting them. President Bush and his administration soon took their eye off the ball and invaded Iraq, for whatever reason we will never know.

Soon after Barack Obama was sworn in as President, he shifted our focus back to the terrorists that attacked us on 9/11. He added more troops and the full out war on Al-Qaeda was on. Many top members of the group have been killed including the number one terrorist in the world Osama Bin Laden.

The United States continues to serve justice on Al-Qaeda and the Taliban in devastating fashion. President Obama’s commitment to the security of the U.S. has been his top priority. We will always honor those who gave their lives on that tragic day.
