Alice M. Greenwald Statement on the Killing of Ayman Al-Zawahiri

  • August 1, 2022

The following is a statement from Alice M. Greenwald, President and CEO of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, on the killing of Ayman al-Zawahiri, who led al Qaeda since the death of Osama bin Laden in 2011.

We are so grateful for the collaboration amongst government agencies that has led to bringing criminal mastermind Ayman Al-Zawahiri to justice. Today’s news demonstrates how the 9/11 story continues to evolve, even 21 year later, and reinforces the need for us to keep educating younger generations about the continued impact of 9/11 on the world we live in today. 

We look forward to working with our counterparts in the government agencies responsible for this strike to ensure the National September 11 Memorial & Museum remains the nation’s authority in telling the story of what happened that day and the effects for years to come.
