9/11 Tien jaar later

Meteen na de aanslagen van 11 september 2001 heette het dat de wereld nooit meer hetzelfde zou zijn. Werd 9/11 inderdaad een waterscheiding? Dit weekend en de komende week blikt deze krant terug. Met analyses en verslagen van ooggetuigen. Vandaag vertelt oud-premier Wim Kok dat met de aanslagen in New York de polarisatie in Nederland begon (pagina 20 en 21). Schrijver Arnon Grunberg ziet terrorisme als geweldspornografie – die op den duur gaat vervelen (22, 23). Correspondent Guus Valk ging naar de school in Sarasota, Florida waar president Bush te horen kreeg dat Amerika werd aangevallen (24, 25).

NEW YORK, NY - AUGUST 12: Construction continues on One World Trade Center (TALLEST BUILDING AT RIGHT) as the memorial footprints of the twin towers are seen (LOWER C) on August 12, 2011 in New York City. Upon completion, One World Trade Center will be New York's tallest skyscraper, topping out at a symbolic 1,776 feet, with 3 million square feet of office space. More than 2,700 people were killed when al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked U.S. passenger jets and flew them into the twin towers of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Nearly ten years after the crippling attacks on Lower Manhattan, business, tourism and new construction like One World Trade Center have rejuvenated the formerly devastated cityscape.
