Former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik told Newsmax TV on Monday that "the world changed, not just New York City," after the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001.
Kerik was promoting his upcoming novel, "The Grave Above the Grave," a fictional thriller about a NYPD commissioner investigating terrorism. He told host Brett Winterble that after 9/11, "the world changed, not just New York City… when it comes to looking at group threats of global terrorism, and who those threats were, and what capacity they were, where they come from."

He added that "our intelligence capabilities are a hundred times better than they were on September 11, 2001, communication between local, state, [and] federal authorities, our ability to identify threats that we would never have seen before – so we’re a lot better off there.
Kerik said that he would ask the American people "not to forget this one thing: on September 11, 2001, the first respondents of New York City… they affected the greatest rescue mission in the history of this country. [They got] Twenty to twenty-five thousand people out of those buildings in the surrounding area. And more importantly evacuated more than a million people out of southern Manhattan… that’s something that’s been unparalleled in this country, probably in the world. And the I think the first responders in New York City should always be remembered for their courage, their dedication, their perseverance."
