4:00 pm
said september 11, i remember you working at the pentagon and when they told us they airplane had attacked their pentagon, i couldn't believe it from the building the way i worked at. if i could see the smoke. and i couldn't believe that you're gone. this want to say, i love you, and we miss you. thank you so much. when you're listening to family members there, read out the names of their loved ones at the sight of ground 0, where the twin towers and the trade center one stood. well, if you are just joining us now on al jazeera, it is shortly after that teen g. m t. and we are listening in to alive memorial service from ground 0 in new york city, where we are mocking the 20th anniversary of the 911 attacks. we have a number of presidents,
4:01 pm
former and current in attendance. we don't expect to hear from them today, but as you can see, they are there to honor the people who are lost on that day. let's bring in our white house correspondent, kimberly how that. kimberly, can you talk us through a little more of what to expect in the coming hours? i know the mood that has been very somber and set to continue really. yeah, the somber mood is expected to continue as we hear the names of the victims continuing to be read. the reason that they do this year after year is to put a face to those names and to try and make sure that they didn't die in vain. so what we're hearing and experiencing right now is something that those that put this event together every year feel is important to continue to keep those names alive because they are people's mothers and fathers and brothers and sisters and aunts and uncles, and grandparents and. and so they do this, it does take a long time,
4:02 pm
but this is a part of the ceremony that many of the family members look forward to when they can hear that name again, the name they don't hear spoken often because it has been 20 years since they passed then, so this is something that is done to not only remember those that died, but to make sure that this is a part of america that is never forgotten in the history books. and so that is what's taking place at ground 0 behind me. and i should point out that if we look at these pictures, if you see those pools of. c water, this is the site where one of the towers or if you're looking at the other one, the other tower was located. these are the very sites where these lives were lost. and so this is a hallowed ground. this is, many of these people have still not been identified in terms of there remains 20
4:03 pm
years later. they are still going through that process. i believe it's about 40 percent complete, which means that this is the only place that many of the family members have is to come and remember their loved ones. and this very public setting, they are able to go to a private cemetery because the remains are still in that spot or have not identified or we're incinerated in the, in the fire then the wreckage and the carnage that came following the toppling of those towers. so that's why this is such a lengthy memorial service that occurs every year. but this 20th anniversary, particularly important because what's happening here is that people are remembering not only how this affected the personally, but how this affected the country. and you hear their, the ringing of the bell that is happening with another minute of silence.
4:04 pm

4:08 pm
my dream we were just listening that bruce springsteen paying tribute to the nearly 3000 people who were lost online 11. this is a memorial 720 years at the size of ground 0 and we are hearing from the members continue to read out the names of the loved ones that have perished there. let's bring our white house correspondent kimberly half that back in. kimberly, i recall we were talking about the names earlier, and something that really struck me upon visiting the memorial was how all the names actually etched into the sides of those huge waterfalls. and they're all
4:09 pm
grouped together either by colleagues or friends or families. and i'm curious as someone who's living in the united states, what does not space now mean? not only to new yorkers, but, but american it is certainly something that is we're beard and respected and reflected. and i have the opportunity to walk amongst those spots. that is where the tower stood. and i hadn't stood there for 20 years. the last time i was there was about a month before the september 11th attacks that i realized how much had changed. and it got me very emotional. it was i, even as i'm listening to these names being read now and even as we just listen to bruce springsteen talking about dreams and how this is not the end for many people, there was a finality to what happened, even though there's hope for
4:10 pm
a better future, many people lost the opportunity right there at ground 00 to have continued relationships with some of their loved ones. and it was really a day that america changed whether you were at ground 0 and had a family member in one of the buildings. whether it was in the pentagon that you might, may have known someone or even if you had a loved one on the plane that crashed and shank, so pennsylvania, there's no question that the united states changed at that moment. and the terror of that moment as that change was occurring is one that is in the minds of every single person that experienced those hours where they simply didn't know what was going on. i can even speak for my own experience. but when the 1st tower was struck, people thought this was a horrible accident. they didn't realize america was under attack and that there
4:11 pm
would be more attacks. and that this was coordinated. in fact, they thought that this was simply an accident. so that's why there are so many 1st responders died in what ensued. they rushed to the scene to try and save people. and when that can tower with hit, that is the moment where people realize that this was something much bigger. and i can tell you in washington, as i watch this unfold, i will never forget, it was a very clear day, much like it is today. and people were watching this on tv, almost thinking it wasn't real. that it was like a movie. because up until that point, americans had the sense of security that they were invincible, that nothing bad could happen in the united states. nothing bad could happen here. and all of that. innocence was lost at that moment. and i can tell you the terror of running and not really sure where to go where was safe. because as soon we were
4:12 pm
getting reports that there was also something happening at the pentagon that were, was talk about potentially something happening at the u. s. capital, which turned out not to be the case, but we do know that there was a claim, likely dest him for the u. s. capital that was flight 93, the crashed in pennsylvania. so people were in disbelief, and that was a day that changed america forever. and those that can remember it. remember this moment and those moments 20 years ago and it's painful. white house correspondent, kimberly how could that following events for us at ground 0 today, we'll come back to you in a moment. kimberly, but for now, thank you very much. let's close that to shank fell. pennsylvania where we can speak to correspond allen fisher. allan, as you were hearing that from kimberly, there was obviously united flight 93 that ended up being hijacked and then crashed into the field where i believe you're standing. what's planned for that,
4:13 pm
that site today? well, george bush was president on that day. everyone remembers the pictures of him getting the news of the attacks while reading the young children at a school in florida. you will be here with his wife laura. busy and he will make some remarks and come law to suit the vice president will make the keynote address . joe biden will decide later. this was remarkable field on an unremarkable hill in an unremarkable part of america. but this is where many people believe that the fight back against what became known as the war on terror actually began flight 90 . 3 left 20 minutes late flying from new york to san francisco. it was meant to be an ordinary flight. there were 44 people on board, 2 pilots, 5 members of crew, 33 passengers, and 4 hijackers and 20 meet 20 minutes into the flight. that's when the hijackers
4:14 pm
made their move. people called their families to let them know that they were on a flight that had been hijacked. and then because of the bones on the plane, the able to find out what happened in new york. what had happened in washington. and they realized that this wasn't an ordinary hijacking, that they were on a flight with people who were carrying out a suicide mission. and in those moments the voted the, the people on board voted to decide to start to try and take the plane back. and so they boiled water, they used to drink cock to rum, the culprit and they made their way towards the flight deck of united flight $93.00 . which at that point had turned, had programmed in washington d. c. and was heading for the u. s. capital that come back with ultimately unsuccessful capture to and those immortal works lateral. and people thought that
4:15 pm
that would be the fight that would restore the plane. but the pilot real, i think that he wasn't going to get his objective, get what he was told to do. which was crash the plane. and so it came down in this unremarkable field at an under marketable part of the country at almost 900 kilometers. i know everyone on board died, but this is no secret ground. and that is what they will mark in the next hours or so as the families of the crew and the families of the $33.00 passengers come here to remember what happened exactly 20 to 20 years ago. of course. incredible acts of heroism. the alan fisher for us in pennsylvania will be coming back to ireland a bit later. but let's now bring in steve clemens. again. he is the host of the bottom line. that's algiers week, a show and also editor at large of the hill. he joins us now. from washington d. c. steve island was just talking there about how the war on terror is perceived
4:16 pm
to have begun, perhaps even on flight 93. i was looking at some of the numbers between 201822020. the u. s. was engaged in some form of counter terrorism activity at 85 countries. i'm curious about the legacy that this has left for regional partners, regional governments that seem to themselves come on the threat because of their perceived link with the us we, we developed an amazing app radix for global spying, and intelligence and awareness. these are, these are some of the capacities americans were shocked to hear about when, when edward snowden revealed them, you know, edward snowden, who is considered by many in the united states to be real trader, was saying, nonetheless, that america had the ability to spy on anyone. through their phone through their computer. that's that, and that is a global was
4:17 pm
a global capacity. and as you talk about the footprint of this national security capacity and obsession, we divided the world between those nations who are going to work, work with us. in doing that and those that essentially were across the line and we're not. it was a very defining moment as kim, how could said, kimberly how could said a minute ago. you don't maybe flight 93 that moment the morning of 911. that was the day that the terror that shook america into these behaviors of, you know, a very, very overwhelming commitment that, that these individuals, these terrorist, these small groups that were non state actors. we were going to capture them and killed them and detain them and, and know about them wherever they were in the world. it was an extraordinary shift and change in our attention. steve, you talk care about how identity has changed in the u. s. there were so many
4:18 pm
different ways of trying to combat terror threats. and this idea that the u. s. could intervene abroad and try to prevent threats from occurring domestically. it suggests that the power intervening has some idea that they live with more civilized standards of behavior right now, over the last 20 years. we've certainly seen the global power dynamic shift. so who now gets to decide what civilization is? i mean, i think that's, it's up for grabs. we've seen, you know, the united states is very divided about all of these things. and, you know, i used to write, i wrote a piece once and said, look, we have to understand what terrorists are trying to do. terrorists are performing on stage for an audience of people that they want to look legitimate for. so when they strike, when they kill, when they take the actions they did on $911.00 that were applauded in some parts of the world. it was because there are parts of the world that were feeling deep grievances, you know, over, over various issues. and my comment was let seduce the audience. let's,
4:19 pm
let's make the audience love what we're doing. let's bring them back to us. otherwise, you're just trying to kill actors on a stage, and there are an unlimited number of them. i think that is one of the fundamental misconduct that i, i think at some level, you know, when you look at the national security reflections of the generals and the admirals and many of the commanders and the political leaders that were involved with reacting to 911 there is an understanding that we engaged in serious overreach, that we went too far, that we, you know, with guantanamo, and so many renditions of people to 3rd countries, torture, to many things that we did that completely were the antithetical to the dna of civil rights and and basic legal justice in the united states that that's how far we went. we went so far that we began to undo the various kinds of things that were most proud of as a nation. and so i think when you talk about civilization, hopefully we get a reset in what that means. but right now it's
4:20 pm
a bit up for grabs. there is, america is not the dominant defined of that anymore, nor as europe. i mean, so i think to a certain degree, we have an ad hoc world and we have to find our way out of it. steve cannon far. the host of the bottom line out here is weakly show an editor at large of the hill . stay with me, steve will come back to you in a little bit, but i want to take us from those live pictures that you're watching in new york to the pentagon. now you will recall after fast to planes, hit the north and south tower there at ground 0. there was another plane, american airlines flight 77, crash into the us pentagon. that's being marked today. that he officer 1st class joseph k 5 here, junior, united states navy lisa k range,
4:21 pm
a render rhonda resolution petty officer, 1st class marshall the rush for the united states navy martha reggie so that the pentagon, you're watching live pictures where they are leaving the names of those who are lost at the pentagon, so across the country, the stay 20 years on or it's being marked at multiple from, you'll recall the $911.00 attacks then led to a 20 year war in afghanistan, as us forces and their allies sought to target al qaeda fighters and the taliban, which was accused of harboring them 20 years later, the taliban is back in control ousting the government that was propped up by the us . as washington withdrew its forces,
4:22 pm
tens of thousands of afghans were killed. many lives turned upside down. to report from called the wrong people for the future that insult rules, holmes was destroyed, drink fighting between us led forces and the tolerable 40 years ago. his brother, one of his songs, was killed. he and his family have lived in this camp for internally displaced. people in cobbled, ever since he blames the united states and its allies for the pain. they been jord woodyear, shallow colored coming at us in the past when years we've suffered so much that at times with hardly been able to eat for days. all africans have been through terrible hardships, not bombardments, fighting our health has destroyed the war last so long because we are africans, and we will fight for our country in central cobble today. tale bon fighters, god form of government buildings and abandoned foreign embassies. the challenges, the movement faces off the what it describes as victory in
4:23 pm
a fight for national sovereignty or remains. its been 20 years since the 911 attacks and the soon after us that invasion. to hunt down all summer, been loud and remove the taliban for power. then followed what the taliban describe is 2 decades of foreign occupation. the foreign forces have gone metallic bound back in power. and the un says that afghan stan is facing a humanitarian, an economic catastrophe. this is the old american embassy, once a hub of cia and military planning. one of the most important centers of us for policy in the world. now, it's just an empty shell. hm. it google was 24 when us led coalition forces invaded . he is scared about the future holds. so look, i look at the moment in the last 20 years, my hopes change, but now they've been left behind all afghans. so we'll get close to the rest of the
4:24 pm
world when the americans were here. but now we have to wait and see again what the future will green. despite his doubts, he says he wants the world to give the tale by chance mythical taliban. oh no. oh my life i've experienced only war. i just want to sleep with ease. i just want to wake up with no fear. i'm tied to the thing by to my family as i leave for work. afraid i'll never see them again. this is one of many graveyards on hillside surrounding campbell. here are buried. some of the estimated 50000 afghan civilians killed in the last 20 years. well that, that is our goal says he also wants the international community to accept the taliban. he wants education for his children who are born into war. he wants the chance for them all to start their lives again. charleston off al jazeera, cobble. now, meanwhile,
