Remembering 9/11: A look back at 9/11 in Minnesota
The terrorist attacks on 9/11 impacted every single person in the United States and most people around the world. To this day, those terrorist attacks impact how we travel and our overall sense of security.
All this week on "Nightcast" at 10 p.m., Chief Political Reporter Tom Hauser will look at various aspects of those attacks from a Minnesota perspective. He’ll talk to relatives of victims of 9/11 about how their families and others are honoring their loved ones. We’ll hear from a flight instructor and Minnesota FBI agent who nearly unraveled the 9/11 plot before it happened. Plus, we’ll hear from a Minnesota man who served in the CIA and the U.S. State Department and helped write the 9/11 Commission Report. He’ll tell us whether we’re safer today than we were 20 years ago and what steps still need to be taken.
We begin with this report on how 9/11 unfolded in Minnesota and how Minnesotans reacted to the terror in New York, Washington, D.C., and the skies over America.
