Nine Years Later

Slate's complete coverage of the anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.

Nine years ago, terrorists hijacked four airplanes and crashed them into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a field in Shanksville, Pa. To mark the anniversary of the attacks, David Weigel is looking at how, for the first time, politicians are holding rallies on what used to be a solemn (and apolitical) day; and April Rabkin explores "the cult of Ahmad Shah Massoud," the man who led the Afghan resistance to the Taliban and who was assassinated in the days before 9/11. Bryce Hall shares a slide show of photographs he took of unusual flags he took in the year after the attacks.

We are also rerunning some older articles pertaining to the 9/11 attacks and how they've changed America. Please see our complete coverage below.
