Today marks the 17th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States.  The attacks were coordinated by al-Qaeda and resulted in the deaths of nearly 3,000 people as thousands more suffered injuries, with even more fatalities over the years due to cancer and respiratory diseases.
