NEW YORK -- The FBI has released never-before-seen photos showing the devastation at the Pentagon following the 9/11 attacks. The new photos were uploaded on March 23 to the FBI’s “Vault,” the bureau’s online hub of archival materials. On Sept. 11, 2001, five terrorists hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 and flew the 90-ton plane into the Pentagon, killing all passengers and crew on board as well as 125 civilians and military personnel on the ground. The plane was traveling 530 mph at the time of impact.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., warned that the next 9/11 attack could emanate from Iraq and Syria if the U.S. does not take steps to immediately halt the advance of the Islamic militants sweeping toward the Iraqi capital of Baghdad. "We need air power immediately to stop the advance toward Baghdad," Graham said on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday, warning that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) - the jihadists who are an offshoot of al Qaeda - could control the entire northern half of the country and use it to march on Jordan and Lebanon while Iran moves in to control the south. The South Carolina senator added that the director of national intelligence and the head of the FBI have both warned that ISIS, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL, has promised to carry out the next 9/11 attacks. "I think it's inevitable. The seeds of 9/11 are being planted all over Iraq and Syria. You don't have to believe me, this is what they're telling you they're gonna do. … [Read more...] about Graham: Next 9/11 attack could come from Iraq, Syria
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- GOP frontrunner Donald Trump is sticking by his dubious contention that he saw "thousands and thousands of people" cheering in the wake of the September 11th terrorist attack in Jersey City, New Jersey. It's a claim that has been debunked by a number of fact checkers since he made the assertion over the weekend - but Trump claimed he had proof. "[T]he media was going crazy. They were having a field day, and one of my people came in, 'Mr. Trump, I have a story in the Washington Post,'" Trump told a crowd of thousands here in Columbus. Trump then proceeded to read out loud a story from the Washington Post on September 18th, 2001, which said that "law enforcement authorities detained and questioned a number of people who were allegedly seen celebrating the attacks and holding tailgate-style parties on rooftops while they watched the devastation on the other side of the river." Trump has also faced off with critics in recent days after New Jersey. Both officials and … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Trump still insists thousands in Jersey City cheered the 9/11 attacks
SPARTANBURG, South Carolina -- Jeb Bush condemned Donald Trump's claim that Arab Americans in New Jersey were seen celebrating in the aftermath the 9/11 terrorist attacks. "This is just wrong," Bush told reporters after a Tuesday afternoon campaign event in Spartanburg, South Carolina, "There wasn't any cheering. That would have been on television. That would have been recorded." He went on to call Trump's charge an "attack on people that are American as anybody else." Bush was the governor of Florida at the time of the 9/11 attacks. "What I remember was a lot of peaceful Muslims that were disheartened and aggrieved and sad, and angry, just as every other American was, as well." Later Tuesday, at a rally in Myrtle Beach, Trump repeated the claim. On Tuesday in an interview on Fox News, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said, "If that had happened, I'd recall it, and I don't." Ohio Governor John Kasich also criticized Trump over the assertion about Muslim Americans Monday in an … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Bush condemns Trump claims about American Muslims celebrating after 9/11
At a rally in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina Tuesday, Donald Trump said his list of accomplishments includes the fact that he predicted the 9/11 terror attacks. He was alerted to this fact by a friend who called him and said his 2000 book, "The America We Deserve," proved, 'you're the first guy that really predicted terrorism." Here's a look at some of Trump's claims from the rally and how they stacked up against his book - and what actually happened. Claim: "In my book, The America We Deserve - I said Osama Bin Laden, better watch him, bad guy...In my book, before the World Trade Center . I said Osama bin Laden, I said you better take him out." The record: Trump did mention bin Laden by name in Chapter 4, called, "The Foreign Policy We Deserve." However he merely pointed bin Laden as an illustration of haphazard foreign policy -- not to predict that bin Laden would be responsible for the next attack against the U.S. "Instead of one looming crisis hanging over us, we face a bewildering … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Fact check: Did Donald Trump predict the 9/11 attacks?
NEW YORK -- The Stars and Stripes stood as a symbol in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. Crews working on the cleanup at Ground Zero flew an American flag on a burned-out building adjacent to the Twin Towers. By the time they took it down, it was tattered and torn. "The souls of all the people who died that day are in the ash that settled in the fabric of the flag," says Jeff Parness, the flag's caretaker. "It's very powerful." Parness started "New York Says Thank You," which pays forward the worldwide outpouring of generosity New Yorkers received after 9/11. In 2008, Parness decided to share the battered flag with the community of Greensburg, Kansas. Volunteers were helping victims dig out from a devastating tornado. Sandra Jungemann, one of the first to see the flag, says it looked "almost hopeless." "There were so many holes and so many pieces of the flag missing," she says. So like modern-day Betsy Rosses, Jungemann and her friends used flags that survived the tornado as patches … [Read more...] about Threads of American history restore 9/11 flag to old glory
On September 10, 2001, then-Attorney General John Ashcroft rejected an FBI request to increase the anti-terror budget. Also on that day, FBI officials testified in Congress that the biggest terrorism threat in the nation was from animal rights activists. But what happened just one day later changed the nation. Since the 9/11 attacks, the United States has spent an estimated $1 trillion on security and defenses against terrorism. But has that made America any safer? Top secret "28 pages" may hold clues about Saudi support for 9/11 hijackers As we approach the 15th anniversary of the attacks next month, author Steven Brill looked at how the U.S. has confronted the threat of terrorism in a new article for the September issue of The Atlantic magazine entitled, "Is America Any Safer?" After a year of investigating, Brill concludes in his cover story that "we are not safer." "We've done a lot of things to make us safer. There are tens of thousands of men and women who wake up every … [Read more...] about Fifteen years after 9/11 attacks, is America any safer?
Last Updated Sep 8, 2011 6:03 PM EDT Brace yourself for an onslaught of Sept. 11 memorial ads as we approach the 10th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. In the U.S., most of these ads will be respectful, patriotic and (hopefully) muted in tone. Not so in foreign countries, where American history and 9/11 are simply another set of spectacular events whose interest can be borrowed to sell everything from mattresses to car headlights to the History Channel to water sanitation charities (click to enlarge image).
