US foreign policy expert Brooks Spector reflects on 9/11, eighteen years later.

Americans are commemorating one of the deadliest terrorist attacks on the country's soil.

Nearly 3,000 people were killed when hijacked planes rammed into the trade centre, the Pentagon and a field near Shanksville on 11 September 2001.

Ray White speaks to US foreign policy expert Brooks Spector about the impact of 9/11.

Brooks Spector, US Foreign Policy Expert
