So much anger, hatred, and fear came out of that day that it led us to make decisions later that failed us.
Twenty years ago, terror attacks on September 11th took place in the United States over the course of a morning but the effects have been felt ever since — politically and psychologically. Journalist Garrett Graff says America lost its innocence that day and the attacks led to a series of consequential blunders by political leaders. The anger, hatred, and fear that emerged from 9/11 and the resulting War on Terror are to blame for the distrust and divisiveness that exists in America today. Graff and filmmaker Brian Knappenberger have devoted their careers to documenting 9/11 and its aftermath. Graff is the author of The Only Plane in the Sky and Knappenberger directed the Netflix docu-series "Turning Point: 9/11 and the War on Terror." They speak with Vivian Schiller, executive director of Aspen Digital at the Aspen Institute.
