It was 13 years ago Thursday when terrorists attacked the United States after gaining control of four commercial airplanes. Two planes struck and took down the World Trade Center in New York; the third damaged the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.; and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania.
