Our world was changed forever on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. In this segment, the staff of CBS Radio Pittsburgh shares their memories of what came after the terror attacks in 2001.
10/10 US-ATTACKS-2ND YEAR ANNIVERSARY The rubble of the World Trade Center smoulders following a terrorist attack 11 September 2001 in New York. A hijacked plane crashed into and destroyed the landmark structure. The all-out war on terrorism unleashed by Washington after the attacks marked a turning point in US-Arab relations and nowhere more so than in once top ally Saudi Arabia. With 15 of the 19 suicide hijackers carrying Saudi nationality and mastermind Osama bin Laden being the scion of a leading Saudi family, the desert kingdom and world oil kingpin, suddenly found itself on the frontline of the war on terror prosecuted by US President George W. Bush. AFP PHOTO/Alex Fuchs (Photo credit should read ALEX FUCHS/AFP/Getty Images)ALEX FUCHS/AFP/Getty Images
