ABSTRACT
An almanac entry for significant world events from 2000-2006 is presented. On September 11, 2001, hijackers crashed two jetliners into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City and another into the Pentagon outside Washington, D.C., while a fourth crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. The U.S., with Great Britain, launched an invasion of Iraq in March 2003, aimed at ousting the dictatorial regime of Saddam Hussein. By early 2002 the euro was the common currency in 12 European Union (EU) nations.
