9/11/2021 marks the 20th anniversary of the deadliest attack ever on American soil. September 11th 2001 not only changed our country here in the United States, but the events reshaped the entire world moving forward from that point on in many ways. 2977 people died in the attacks that day, 2606 alone died in The World Trade Center when the towers collapsed, many more firefighters, police officers, and first responders died in what became the greatest rescue mission of all time saving those left to survive in the attacks amongst the rubble. In this episode to mark 20 years I interview the man who led the entire operation in New York City on that day. I get the inside and exclusive story behind his entire decision making process, his unparalleled, heroic, and relentless leadership that would turn the most tragic attack to ever happen on United States soil into the greatest rescue mission of all time. Please welcome former NYC Police Commissioner Mr. Bernie Kerik to the Shawn Ryan Show.
