On the morning of September 11, 2001, 19 terrorists hijacked four planes and attacked the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. (with one plane crashing before reaching its destination). 2,977 people died that day (not counting the terrorists).
Senator Hagel and his staff evacuated Capitol Hill. In the weeks following, Hagel's schedule was filled with meetings, briefings, interviews, and other appointments related to the attacks. The schedules shown here highlight Hagel's activities on selected days between September 12th and the 25th.
