20 years ago today. America suffered the deadliest terror attack in US. History on September 11th, 2001, 19, Al-Qaeda terrorists carried out for coordinated suicide attacks using commercial airliners. The attacks, took the lives of 2977 people and injured more than 6,000. Others, among the innocent people who died from the attacks, were the First Responders who raced into danger to save others. We recently talked with one of these First Responders, former New York Police Department Officer Stephen, Dillon Dillon, a detective at the time was called into Duty. After the second plane, struck the World Trade Center Tina's, teamwork to identify victims and said they soon, found themselves. Overwhelmed. There was nobody on the road except for the cops and firemen First Responders. It was pretty Eerie. There was so much chaos going on and
It was unorganized when I say, oh no guys. I mean, the police department is just didn't know what to do. There was so much going on, right? That they didn't know, you know, what direction to send people in.
What do you remember most from that day? I'll be enough. I remember what a beautiful day. It was. It was clear blue skies. Chris was cool September day. And I just remember thinking, you know, how can this happen on a day like today? And then once I got into Manhattan and a sore, the destruction, my next thought was life is not going to be the same for a while here in the city or is a cop.
And you said you lost some colleagues?
I did. Yeah, I did. I lost all buddy of mine. He was when I was in our colleges and on the cover. His name was Sergio Villanueva. He then transferred up there. Police department was there for two years and he died in one of the buildings and then another guy Bobby, Fazio, a friend of my wife's Porsche Miss handling, all this guy named Chris Christodoulou. He was a sergeant. He actually passed away a year ago from brain, cancer something from 9/11.
As soon as a detective, you had to try to identify missing persons, that must have been difficult. It was very, very, very emotional. We had hundreds of detectives in the Armory and just taking that information and it would go into a manila envelope and then that would go to the mall and then every piece of DNA that came from ground zero, or the landfill was in tested against the thousands of pieces of DNA that we had. Talked it at stopped lethal this day, there actors in identifying people through DNA.
So, Looking Back. Now, two decades. What's the takeaway? What what's the most important lesson of 911? And I think the most important thing is how everyone came together to help, you know, it had and people did things even if they weren't First Responders. And in the people that came out drinks and food and people set up shop downtown, just about Canal. Street, even wanted us to set up restaurants, for the First Responders to come and eat for free. I think that's the takeaway. You know what it is. Sometimes it takes something like that to bring people together, then to help and people find a way to help even if you're not First Responders.
That that's beautifully said, we appreciate you talking with us today, and she actually thanks for everything you did and that really, really difficult time. I appreciate it.
That was former NYPD officer. Stephen Dillon, with his part in the larger story that we remember on the 20th, anniversary of that tragic day.

President, Biden is facing New Waves of pressure from critics this time, on the subject of September 11th, the Resurgence of al-Qaeda and persistent accusations of a lack of transparency. Discuss is daily wires and Howarth. So Ian, why is President Biden under so much pressure, especially now as we come up on this anniversary?
Well, as we're aware Al-Qaeda, terrorists, coordinated and carried out, the 9/11 attacks, but one important detail we should know. Is that US policy at the time Drew? No distinction between terrorist groups such as Al-Qaeda. I know to Hobbit them such as the Taliban has President Bush from his famous 2001, National Dress On the attacks. The search is underway for those were behind these evil Acts.
I directed the full resources of our intelligence and law-enforcement communities to find those responsible and to bring them to justice.
We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who Harbor them.
But now 20 is on President. Joe Biden is effectively taking the opposite approach and he say some pretty pointed criticism. He talked about those, the first relates to present, by this decision to unilaterally withdraw from a cast on this is not only resulted in the complete return to Afghanistan, Taliban control the group who Hobbit the perpetrators of 911 in the first place, but the return of other terrorist groups to the region, including Al-Qaeda and many a now, condemning the sudden inability of the US to prevent the Resurgence of the terrorist group behind 9/11, especially since it's the responsibility for preventing terrorism. Now, rests on the shoulders of the Taliban us defense secretary, Lord, Alston recently admitted as much happens, more than I thought Ida. And I has the ability to, to regenerate to in Afghanistan, you know, we put the Taliban on notice that we expect for them to not allow that to
And there's been some transparency concerns as well.
Yes, the second layer of criticism relates to an ongoing Push by hundreds of family members of 9/11 victims for the US government. To release information regarding the attacks, specifically information, which many of you as being hidden by the Department of Justice and the FBI regarding the alleged involvement of Saudi government officials in the attacks, the group members of the 911 Community. I actually wrote an open letter saying that President Biden is not, welcome at Tule 23911, the memorials. He will be visiting today unless he fulfills his commitment to quote, seek full truth. And accountability is one except from Alaska as we approached the 20th anniversary of 9/11 and having being used as a political bargaining chip. For two decades, while patients has expired. We had Great Hopes, the President Biden, who campaigned on bringing truth, and trust back to the Oval Office would value the lives and sacrifices of American citizens over. Diplomatic relations with a country accused of mass murder.
So on the 20th anniversary of the deadliest terror attack in American history, It's a combination of the apparent Resurgence of those responsible for 911. And what is being seen as a refusal to adhere to campaign promises. That is driving the latest ways to criticism against President Biden.
20 years later and still a lot of frustration and thanks for the update daily wires and Howarth.
The terror group Isis K. It's been discussed a lot lately. After they took responsibility for the recent attack on the Kabul Airport in Afghanistan, that killed at least 13 US service members and over 100 Afghans here. Tell us more about the group is daily wire. Charlotte Pence, Bond, Charlotte. What do we know about Isis k?
Soak the group is a branch of the Islamic State technically called Islamic State chorus on which refers to its region course. On is a wider historical region that includes parts of Iran Central, Asia Afghanistan, and Pakistan. According to Katherine, Zimmerman, who is a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute. The group was officially recognized in early 2015. Zimmerman told me that the group started to form and fall of 2014 from disaffected members of the Pakistani Taliban in Afghanistan. Pakistan region. He says, they were accusing. The Taliban of compromising with the west and not pursuing Global Jihad. Okay, so they peeled off from the Taliban over differences in ideology. Infusing was several competing groups in the country and overlapping ideologies. Can you run to the main groups?
Yeah, so the main ones we hear about are the Islamic State, the Taliban and Al-Qaeda. And Zimmerman told me that one of the main differences between these groups actually has to do with how each one treats fellow Muslims, the Taliban and Al-Qaeda believe that other Muslims need to be taught true Islam. In order to done, be held accountable for their actions. The word Taliban actually means students in Pashto, which is one of the official languages of Afghanistan. However, since the Taliban is in control, now, they will be strictly enforcing Sharia law.
The song estate. However, is more extreme and Fringe and they believe any individual especially Muslims, who haven't yet answered the call to Jihad and joined. The Islamic State are not actually Muslims. She said this distinction is extremely important. She told me she sees it as a duty to enforce, its interpretation of Islam with Force Muslims, to resist or reject. It must be killed, the Taliban by contrast believes. They need to teach Muslims, their interpretation of Islam, and that people will adjust, once they're exposed to it. Experts, say that the Islamic state is actively recruit and a dices que, his Works to expand its Network and two more urban areas like Kabul, which obviously we saw from the recent terrorist attack.
So Isis K appears to be expanding. What does that mean in terms of Terror threats?
Well, it's hard to predict but a 2018 report by the center for strategic and International Studies noted that Islamic State chorus and disregards International borders and envisions is territory. Transcending nation-states. The same report said of the group's Global aspirations include raising the banner of all the Cub of Jerusalem and white house, and of course, the Islamic State isn't, the only terror group for the US to be watching right. Now. There's also concerned that Al-Qaeda will re-emerge the UN report from June of this year, refer to an even earlier report. So prior to the complete withdrawal of US forces and said that the Taliban and Al-Qaeda remain closely aligned and show, no indication of breaking ties. It also said that Al-Qaeda was present in 15 of Afghanistan's 34 provinces.
Okay, so that was prior to the Taliban takeover. Do we have any sense of how things have changed since then?
It's hard to know, for sure. But Zimmerman explained to me that while the Taliban doesn't support transnational. Taratak 20 years ago. The Taliban didn't prevent Al-Qaeda from attacking the US on September 11th, and then they didn't turn us on the bin Laden and see you as afterwards. So, the concern is that the Taliban isn't going to break ties with Al-Qaeda or be able to prevent the Islamic State from having some type of Safe Haven inside of Afghanistan. She also said that the US for a lot of reasons, may not have the intelligence that it needs in order to support the Over the Horizon approach that the Biden Administration has discussed as a future counterterrorism strategy, right? As in us, trying to keep eyes on the region from afar. That's right.
