This month marks the 10th anniversary of the most devastating attack on U.S. soil, the events of the morning of September 11, 2001.
The attacks carried out that day continue to resonate both here and abroad. In New York City, work continues at One World Trade Center, otherwise known as Ground Zero, where a memorial plaza honors the more than 2,700 who died in and around the twin towers. In Afghanistan, more than 30,000 U.S. forces remain on the ground, while more than 6,000 have lost their lives in the campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq.
William Aceves, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Professor of Law at California Western and an expert in international law and human rights, looks back at the events of that day and the ways in which their effects are still felt.
