GovExec Daily: Reflections on the Sept. 11 Attacks
Twenty years after the terrorist attacks, the podcast recalls what the events meant for people in Washington, New York and government itself.
Twenty years ago this week, terrorists struck the United States in the largest attack of its kind on American soil. The Sept. 11 attacks were a shock to the world and a turning point for the nation. In the subsequent decades, the federal government reoriented its intelligence gathering infrastructure, waged the Global War on Terror and shifted its thinking and resources around administrative power and function.
Over four episodes, GovExec Daily examines the ways the attacks have changed government and how government responded. First, people who were there on that day—current and former Government Executive staffers, Pentagon workers and others—explain what they experienced in the immediate aftermath of that fateful day.
