NOW Today: Today’s show


If you’re watching msnbc this morning you’ll note we’re airing our annual “As It Happened” coverage of September 11th. The program picks up with TODAY Show tape of the attacks moments after the initial impact at the World Trade Center, and extends a few minutes into noon.

Alex Wagner and our panel will then join you as we mark the anniversary of September 11th.  We’ve invited Hina Shamsi, the director of the ACLU’s National Security Project, to discuss how things have evolved 11 years later - with a particular emphasis on the tradeoff between security and liberty.

Also on the show today: more trouble for Romney and his taxes, the increasing pressure on Capitol Hill over budget negotiations, and the balance of power in the Senate.

We’ll see you for NOW later today.
