NEW YORK - SEPTEMBER 13, 2001: Remnants of a New York City Fire Department vehicle lie in the wreckage of the World Trade Center, two days after the twin towers were destroyed after being hit by two hijacked passenger jets, September 13, 2001 in New York City. This September 11 marks ten years since members of Al Qaeda hijacked four planes, attacking the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and crashing one in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, killing nearly 3,000 people in all. The effects continue to resonate across the global political landscape, as the United States concluded a nearly decade-long search for Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, killing him in May 2011, and struggles to wind down two wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
