Sept. 11 Anniversary Offers a Pause Amid the Clamor
By MAGGIE HABERMAN
Good morning on Friday, Sept. 11, 2015, 14 years later. CNN has released its lineup for the Republican debate next week: Carly Fiorina will be promoted to the prime-time event, and the soft-spoken Ben Carson will share center stage with Donald J. Trump, offering a split-screen study in contrasts of the current Republican front-runners. But that is for next week. On Friday, there will be a relative break from the typical campaign noise as candidates and public officials attend memorials and read the names of the dead.
For 14 years, politics has been postponed on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks at the Pentagon and the World Trade Center that killed nearly 3,000 people and changed the country. This year is no exception.
