REP LIEU STATEMENT ON THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE 9/11 TERRORIST ATTACKS
WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D-Los Angeles County) issued the following statement commemorating the 20th Anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
“20 years ago today, 19 al-Qaeda terrorists, the vast majority of whom were Saudis, launched an attack on the United States, killing nearly 3,000 people on one of the darkest days in American history. We will never forget those who lost their lives that day. As we continue to mourn and honor the lives of the victims, we are also reminded of the bravery shown by the firefighters, first responders, and regular citizens who courageously risked their own lives to help their fellow Americans. On this painful anniversary, I’m praying for all those impacted by the events of 9/11 and remain hopeful for a future free of terrorism and violence.”
