US President Barack Obama has signed a proclamation, designating the anniversary of the September 11 attacks as Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance.
In December 2001, the US Congress designated the anniversary of the attacks as Patriot Day. In April 2009, Congress requested the observance of the anniversary as an annually recognized National Day of Service and Remembrance.
Nearly 3,000 people died during the attacks on September 11, 2001, including two planes crashing into the North and South towers of the World Trade Center complex in New York City. Both towers collapsed within two hours.
However, there are still many unanswered questions regarding the attacks, and many believe that the whole incident was an inside job, designed to justify subsequent US-led wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Press TV has conducted an interview with David Duke, member of the House of Representatives, from New Orleans, to further discuss the issue.
