  • So tonight with the new Iraqi government in place and following consultations with allies abroad, and Congress at home,

  • I can announce that America will lead a broad coalition to roll back this terrorist threat.

  • President Obama discussing a plan last night for dealing with ISIL, or what we call ISIS.

  • We`ve talked about them a lot this year on CNN STUDENT NEWS.

  • ISIS is a terrorist group. The name stands for Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

  • That`s what it wants. Its own country based on its own severe interpretation of Islam.

  • And Iraq and Syria are where ISIS has gained ground, taking over huge portions of land.

  • They`ve killed hundreds of civilians, they`ve brutally murdered a pair of American journalists.

  • They`ve killed hundreds of civilians, they`ve brutally murdered a pair of American journalists.

  • President Obama has been criticized for how he`s handled the situation.

  • Two weeks ago he said his administration didn`t have a strategy for dealing with ISIS.

  • In last night speech to the American public, he wanted to both lay out a strategy and get American support for it.

  • But I want the American people to understand how this effort will be different from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

  • It will not involve American combat troops fighting on foreign soil.

  • This counterterrorism campaign will be waged through a sturdy relentless effort to take out ISIL wherever they exist using our air power and our support for partners` forces on the ground.

  • One thing the president asked Congress for was the authority to give weapons and training to Syrian rebels.

  • These are people who are fighting the Syrian government in that nation`s civil war.

  • And President Obama wants to help them fight ISIS as well.

  • It`s not clear whether Congress will vote to authorize that, especially so close to November`s midterm elections.

  • Another issue is that some terrorists may be fighting alongside the rebels.

  • Today is the 13 anniversary of a very dark day in American history.

  • On September 11 2001, 19 terrorists hijacked four commercial airlines.

  • They crushed two of them into the two World Trade Center towers in New York City,

  • e of them into the Pentagon, one of them into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Almost 3,000 people were killed.

  • Yesterday, three congressional gold medals were presented.

  • These are the highest awards that the U.S. Congress can give civilians.

  • One medal will go to each of the attack`s sites.

  • There are also memorials nationwide today, and in anniversary ceremony at the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York, the names of 2983 victims will be read.

  • Their families will be able to visit the museum afterward. And it will be open to the public tonight.

  • American flags flown at half-staff commemorate Patriot Day.

  • It`s held every year on this date. It remembers the tragedy, the American resolve and the heroes who gave their lives to save others.

  • Now, look at three powerful symbols of September 11.

  • My job to go there from the very beginning was trying and help just finding one person alive.

  • I found no one. Not one.

  • But what I did find was a symbol to help the families.

  • As building (INAUDIBLE) forward, debris was like an atomic bomb.

  • Our job was to go in there and try and see if anybody was hurt or maybe we can save somebody,

  • and I was damaged at that point, but I looked at to my right and passed it across.

  • And that made me drop to my knees in tears.

  • For a short time, but allowed me to become renewed, give me hope.

  • It`s something that came from the debris, from the devastation.

  • Evil destroyed that building and faith arose out of it.

  • Truck was the first thing that I saw and it was absolutely devastated,

  • and it sort of was a sign of what happened to the company that the truck was unrepairable.

  • It`s like half the company. We lost the captain or lieutenant and (INAUDIBLE) right down to the proby (ph).

  • You know, losing your brothers, your, you know, your coworkers, I think about at least, you know, once or twice a day.

  • That was a vehicle that carried the bravest men I know.

  • The damage that was done to that truck is nothing compared to what it`s done, you know, in human loss.

  • You know, and you look at that truck how strong it is, it`s unbelievable how much damage it took.

  • When we arrived here, the second plane had struck the tower before we were ready to go to one side to start to evacuate the people.

  • We were there for about approximately half an hour, you know, getting 200 to 300 people out of the North Tower,

  • t`s when the North Tower started to collapse.

  • I was injured during the collapses, I was out of work for a week, and I went back on the following Tuesday, right down to the (INAUDIBLE).

  • I was injured during the collapses, I was out of work for a week, and I went back on the following Tuesday, right down to the (INAUDIBLE).

  • I was injured during the collapses, I was out of work for a week, and I went back on the following Tuesday, right down to the (INAUDIBLE).

  • It was very difficult to work.

  • We were using our hands to move debris around.

  • I was in need of a pair of gloves, and they were leather gloves that were donated there.

  • Once I put the gloves on, I noticed that somebody had written in black ink, it said thank you on them.

  • It could have been from a firefighter in California, it could have been from a school kid in Indiana,

  • I don`t know. Just they were hearing spirit.

  • They were here with me, and they - the recovery effort, and that was their own little way of pitching in, and I appreciate that.

  • Those simple words, thank you, circled. It helped me get through that day and a lot of other days, too.

  • There was another attack on Americans on this date.

  • There was another attack on Americans on this date.

  • It happened in Libya in 2012.

  • Terrorists stormed the U.S. compound in Benghazi.

  • They set fire to the main building. U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens and IT expert Sean Smith died of smoke inhalation.

  • Later that night, the militantskilled former U.S Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.

  • The Obama administration initially said that a video making fun of Islam,

  • a video produced in the U.S. inspired that attack.

  • a video produced in the U.S. inspired that attack.

  • But it later backed away from that saying the Benghazi assault was terrorism.

  • The U.S. government also came under criticism when it was reported that additional security had been requested for the Benghazi facility earlier that year.

  • The secretary of state at the time, Hillary Clinton and President Obama have both said they take responsibility for the attack.

  • One suspect has been captured and transported to Washington D.C. where he`s pled not guilty to helping the terrorists.

  • We are taking you coast to coast in today`s Roll Call, and by that we mean Atlantic to Bering Sea.

  • J.P. Taravella High School in Coral Springs, Florida, good to see you Trojans out there.

  • North Kingstown High School in North Kingstown, Rhode Island, we are saluting the Skippers in the Ocean state.

  • And Barrow High School in Barrow, Alaska. Welcome to you Whalers watching today.

  • We`ve now announced all 50 states on our Roll Call.Keep your requests coming at cnnstudentnews.com

  • It was 200 years ago that Francis Scott Key wrote The Star Spangled Banner.

  • The broad stripes and bright stars that inspired his poem had been raised over Fort McHenry during the battle of Baltimore.

  • n honor of the anniversary, 7,000 students met at the Fort this week,

  • wearing red, white or blue. They came together to form a human flag.

  • This was done 100 years ago, and a participant who was a month old then, joined in this event at age 100.

  • That patriotic tribute brings us to the end of our September 11, 2014 show.

  • We thank you for watching and hope you`ll be here again tomorrow when CNN STUDENT NEWS returns.

  • I`m Carl Azuz.

So tonight with the new Iraqi government in place and following consultations with allies abroad, and Congress at home,
