Episode Summary

EDIT
On September 11, 2001 thousands of people faced the ultimate test of judgment, courage and skill. From senior political leaders to air traffic controllers and ordinary men and women, 9/11 State of Emergency recounts the difficult split-second decisions made that fateful day. In a minute-by-minute investigation of the day's events, this HISTORY special features frank and in depth insider interviews with former National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, Acting Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Richard Myers and White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card, detailing the challenges these high-level officials faced as they sought to remain calm and gain control of events in the middle of an unprecedented crisis. 9/11 State of Emergency also features interviews with the air traffic controllers and F-16 pilots whose actions and decisions helped shape the day, as well as a conversation with family members of passengers onboard Flight 93 who were able to speak to their loved ones and pass along information that helped passengers and crew decide to launch their fight back, sparing Washington D.C. from further attack.moreless
