The Top 5 News Stories of the First Decade in the 21st Century

Several significant events occurred during the first decade of the 21st century, 2000-2010, which changed the United States and impacted the world. Here are the most notable news stories from that period:

  1. September 11, 2001 attacks: The terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. were a defining moment for the United States and the world. Nearly 3,000 people were killed in the attacks, which led to significant changes in U.S. foreign policy and the creation of the Department of Homeland Security.
  2. The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq: Following the 9/11 attacks, the United States launched military campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq. The wars had a significant impact on U.S. foreign policy, military spending, and the lives of millions of people in the Middle East.
  3. Hurricane Katrina: In 2005, Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast region of the United States, causing massive destruction and loss of life.

  4. The election of Barack Obama: In 2008, Barack Obama became the first African American to be elected president of the United States. His presidency was marked by significant policy changes, including the passage of the Affordable Care Act and the repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy for LGBT individuals in the military.
  5. The Great Recession: In 2008, the U.S. experienced a major economic crisis, which resulted in widespread job loss, home foreclosures, and financial instability. The recession had a significant impact on the U.S. economy and the global economy as a whole.
