FROM THIS EPISODE

All over the country, Americans are mourning those who died in the attacks of September 11, 2001. We  talk with the top counter-terrorism official who was in the White House that day, hear what he and others have to say about subsequent progress in what's come to be called the "Global War on Terror." Also, General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker take their messages to the Senate.

Main Topic 9/11, Iraq and the Global War on Terror 43 MIN, 11 SEC

Six years ago, almost 3000 Americans died in attacks orchestrated by al Qaeda's Osama bin Laden. Today, Washington is preoccupied by the war in Iraq. General David Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker are getting tougher questions from Senators than they did from members of Congress. We update the action on Capitol Hill, including criticism from Republicans as well as Democrats, and look at the "Global War on Terror" so tragically dramatized six years ago. Is it really "global?" Is it a "war?" What does Iraq have to do with it?
