Press Statement – 22nd anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks

On September 11, 2001, terrorists killed nearly 3,000 people and injured more than 6,000 others in the worst attack against the homeland in our nation’s history. Today we honor their memories and stand with the families and friends of those who perished in New York City, Arlington, Virginia, and Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

The men and women of the U.S. Department of State will never forget that tragic day, the many lives lost, and the first responders who rushed into danger to save them. We also remember our colleagues who were killed on this day in 2012 in Benghazi, Libya. Their bravery and sacrifice continue to be an inspiration for this Department and our nation.

The memory of those who perished on 9/11 reminds us of why we must continue to fight against those who commit acts of terrorism. In the years since, we have stood side by side with partners from around the world to end the scourge of terrorism and ensure terrorists are held accountable for their crimes. The United States will continue to defend our homeland, our people, and our allies.

    22 years ago three modern steel cored high rise buildings in New York were brought down in controlled demolition and made to look like the work of terrorists. Steel cored buildings simply do not collapse, and certainly not at near free-fall speed. Controlled demolition takes weeks of preparation. The American deep state mafia got its way – the Patriot Act to dismantle the constitution and an excuse for the lucrative military industrial complex to embark on 20 years of middle eastern warfare. The official “truth” remains a bad joke.
