(Ground Zero: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with "New Yorker" writer Lawrence Wright about ten years after September 11, 2001. [WRIGHT - says it is great to see the buildings rising again near Ground Zero; notes the real damage is what happened after 9/11; the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, which have undermined the US economy; states we are a different people now; the fear we put around ourselves like a shell and we need to hold onto a sense of who we are; outlines the two real threats: Anwar el-Awlaki, the real successor to Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden†† and Lashkar e-Taiba††, created by the Pakistani intelligence.]
Cooper, Anderson
