US Marks 20 Years Since 9/11, in Shadow of Afghan War’s End
NEW YORK (AP) — The U.S. is commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, the deadliest terror strike ever on U.S. soil.
The milestone anniversary arrived Saturday under the pall of a pandemic and in the shadow of a frantic withdrawal from Afghanistan.
President Joe Biden is scheduled to travel to all three sites of the 2001 attacks: New York’s World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
Former President George W. Bush is due at the Pennsylvania memorial and successor Barack Obama at ground zero.
Other observances are planned around the country.
