Tonight we are focusing on the after math of the attacks for September 11th.

As a New Yorker, I loath both the exploitation of the tragedy in my city and the inconvenient truths about the World Trade Center that continue to be hushed.

Eleven years later, the area now called Ground Zero is still an economic disaster. Infighting between government agencies, financial packages that dont add up, battling memorials and rebuilding projects that do nothing for the memories of the dead and injured or for the econimc redevelopment of the area, and politicians who identify with the tragedy only when it is benifical to their career, have left a bad taste in the mouths of NYers.

As the FBI and police chase the latest credible terror threat, are we safer than we were 10 years ago? Examining airline safety, profiling, the Patriot Act, and the "war on terror."

Both the left and the right never fail to exploit a tragedy for personal and finacial gain. Tonight we look at who is benefiting the most from terrorism in the US and how selling fear has robbed us of our rights and tax dollars.

And finally, the Ground Zero Mosque, how the controversy has helped and hurt American Muslims.
