The 9/11 Timeline

To mark the five-year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, ThinkProgress has created a comprehensive timeline documenting the key events since September 11, 2001. Our timeline charts five threads:

— The steady increase in international terrorism and the growth of al Qaeda — The campaign to block and obstruct the work of the 9/11 Commission, and the failure to carry out the commission’s recommendations — The failure to stablize and rebuild Afghanistan — The downgrading of the hunt for Osama bin Laden — The steady decline of America’s image abroad

Check out the timeline HERE. (We also have a timeline detailing the war in Iraq.) If there is something important we missed, let us know in the comments section or send us an email.
