'Powerful Symbol Of Hope': Stunning Double Rainbow Shone Over NYC While Crowds Paid Tribute To 9/11 Victims

On a fateful September day, the world witnessed a series of meticulously coordinated terrorist acts known as the September 11 attacks. These devastating events were executed by al-Qaeda, involving four separate suicide attacks.

Two of the attacks involved hijacked planes deliberately crashing into the iconic Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, while the other two flights were aimed at targets in or near Washington, D.C. 

The third team carried out a destructive assault on the Pentagon, the central nerve center of the U.S.

These tragic events marked a pivotal moment in history, forever altering the course of the United States and the world.

Nearly 3,000 lives were lost in the tragic attacks.

In response, then-President George W. Bush initiated a “global war on terror,” which included a military campaign in Afghanistan to capture al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Bin Laden managed to evade capture for several years until his eventual death in a U.S. raid on his compound in Pakistan in 2011, ordered by then-President Barack Obama.
