Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld says he kept the Pentagon open after a terrorist attack 10 years ago today to send a message.
Reports of suspicious activity and vehicles in the nation’s capital are up 60 percent in the wake of an investigation of a terror threat.
Al-Qaida may have sent American terrorists or men carrying U.S. travel documents to launch an attack on Washington or New York to coincide with memorials marking the 10th anniversary of 9/11, government officials say.
Spokesman Cpl. Evan Baxter says the two white Ford Econoline vans with U-Haul lettering were stolen at different times from two different U-Haul lots in the Temple Hills area Saturday.
As we remember one of the most tragic days in modern history, we hear two stories of 9/11 told by two Marylanders who were in harm’s way. One was inside the World Trade Center and the other in the Pentagon when the planes hit.
Authorities say the credible terror threat focuses on New York City and nearby Washington D.C., so there will be an intense focus on area bridges in Maryland.
As the nation prepares to remember the Sept. 11 attacks this weekend, the state says its 7,000 miles of coastline need more protection.
“…nothing is more important than our country and the people who gave their lives. Really, it’s the families. I think about the kids who lost parents on that day. That’s what you play for. So, it’s just an honor to be a part of it.”
One of the few silver linings from 9/11 is that firefighters called to similar scenes are now better prepared for what they’ll face.
Are we safer? That’s the debate this week, as Americans reflect on the 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
The 9/11 terror attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon eventually triggered two wars. Now two brothers from Maryland who fought the flames as firefighters will spend the 10th anniversary of 9/11 in uniform in Iraq.
In the run-up to the 10th anniversary of 9/11, remembrances large and small will be held around the nation. One of the first hometown events is happening in Columbia.
