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 looked at various aspects of those attacks from a Minnesota perspective. We started on Tuesday with how 9/11 unfolded in Minnesota. On Wednesday, KSTP talked to relatives of victims of 9/11 about how their families and others are honoring their loved ones. On Thursday, we heard from a flight instructor and Minnesota FBI agent who nearly unraveled the 9/11 plot before it happened.

On Friday, a Minnesota man who served in the CIA, the U.S. State Department and helped write the 9/11 Commission Report discussed whether we’re safer today than we were 20 years ago and what steps still need to be taken.
