HAUNTING: Just Released Pics Of The 9/11 Terrorist Attack On The USA Are VERY Sobering

Written by K. Walker on September 11, 2017

It’s been 16 years since the world has changed. The images are permanently etched in our minds. These photos of that horrible day have just been released.

You won’t forget these images, either.

They show what it was like to be inside the Pentagon and at the World Trade Center after the attack.

There are also some candid photos of President Bush and his advisors in the moments immediately following the attack.

It’s been 16 years since the horrific September 11th attacks that left 2,996 people dead and more than 6,000 others wounded in America.

To mark the harrowing anniversary, the Department of Defense has released dozens of astonishing and rare images showing the aftermath of the attack inside the Pentagon and at the World Trade Center.

They were hit by planes on that fateful morning during a series of coordinated attacks by al Qaeda hijackers.

Another plane, United Airlines Flight 93, crash landed in a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after passengers stopped the terrorists from hitting their intended target.

The powerful photos include candid shots of then-President George Bush as he came to terms with the horrifying attack on the United States.
