View Profile



On Monday afternoon, President Joe Biden will commemorate the 22nd anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 in Alaska.


At Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Anchorage, Biden will address more than 1,000 service troops, first responders, and their families, according to the White House.


In an effort to strengthen ties with important Asian allies in the face of China’s growing power, Biden traveled abroad to attend the G20 summit in India and to Vietnam.


Biden will commemorate 9/11 in Alaska, and Harris will go to Ground Zero.


He left for Anchorage from Vietnam early on Monday morning. Pham Minh Chinh, the prime minister of Vietnam, expressed his sorrow over the “tremendous losses incurred” as a result of the Sept. 11 attacks, and Biden thanked him for his “sentiment and concern.”



For not taking part in customary festivities at the White House, the Pentagon, or in New York, Biden has drawn considerable criticism.


On Monday morning, Vice President Kamala Harris attended the commemorative service at ground zero in downtown Manhattan on behalf of the administration. Governor Kathy Hochul, Mayor Eric Adams, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, and others were present.


Decades after two planes collided with the World Trade Center, the process of identifying the deceased continues. Just this week, two additional victims—the 1,648th and 1,649th of the 2,753 persons killed in the Twin Towers—were recognized.


This week, the New York City Fire Department also added 43 names to a memorial wall honoring firefighters, paramedics, and members of the civilian support personnel who passed away as a result of illnesses contracted while working on rescue and recovery activities after the attack.


Biden visited each of the three attack locations during his first year in office. He spoke at the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial in Arlington, Virginia, the previous year.,output


At the event the year before, he observed, “It’s good to remember.” These memories aid in our recovery, but they can also expose the pain and transport us back to the time when our grief was at its most acute.


Last week, Biden rejected the terms of a plea agreement for five Guantanamo Bay detainees accused of playing a part in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.


On Monday’s anniversary, first lady Jill Biden will lay a wreath at the National 9/11 Pentagon Memorial in Arlington and second gentleman Doug Emhoff was scheduled to travel to Shanksville, Pennsylvania, for a memorial observance for Flight 93.


Nearly 3,000 people were killed that in a string of coordinated attacks by the terrorist group al-Qaida. Forty individuals died on Flight 93 and 184 lives were lost at the Pentagon.
