Former Prime Minister JOHN HOWARD joins LIZ HAYES for 9/11 UNDER INVESTIGATION special episode

- ADVERTISEMENT -

Twenty years ago this September, nineteen young men brought the most heavily armed nation on Earth to its knees.

The men, carrying only pocket-knives, hijacked four passenger jets and on live television, flew them into the twin towers of the 110-story World Trade Center in Manhattan, and the Pentagon in Washington – the home of the US military.

On that terrible morning nearly 3000 people died, more than the Pearl Harbour attack in World War 2, including hundreds of first responders who entered the skyscrapers attempting to save lives.

On September 11 the world learned the awful power of a new form of warfare: terror.

Twenty years later we investigate the legacy of 9/11 – and the subsequent War on Terror, including the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan that cost thousands of lives and became the longest ever engagement for Australian forces.

Under Investigation brings together the Sydney man who survived the falling towers, the Australian Prime Minister who was in Washington at the time of the attacks, as well as experts on politics, counterterrorism, and conspiracies.

We also speak with those who refuse to believe official reports on the attacks, those who sifted through rubble to explain the collapse of the World Trade Center, and the man charged with heading the Australian security response.

AT THE WAR TABLE:

James Dorney, then a 25-year old working on the 92nd floor of the towers. James had just arrived at work and finished his first call of the day when he saw the world explode outside his window.

The Honourable John Howard, was in Washington to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the signing of the Anzus Treaty when the attacks occurred.

Professor Simon Jackman, CEO of the US Studies Centre at the University of Sydney. An expert in US Politics, Simon speaks to the political effect of the 9/11 attacks and the War on Terror.

Dr. Anne Aly, counterterrorism expert and Australia’s first female Muslim Member of Federal Parliament. Dr. Aly entered politics to bring a diverse voice to crucial discussions about Muslim extremism.

Professor Jolanda Jetten, is one of Australia’s leading researchers in the field of social psychology. She is an expert on the way traumatic events affect cities like New York and how conspiracy theories arise after extreme events.
