One year after the September 11 attacks, 18 journalists joined Gwen Ifill in a special one hour Washington Week. We looked back at how the country evolved over the first year post-September 11. In Part 1, we examined how President Bush and the presidency had changed, the approaching war in Iraq, the balance between security and freedom, and the remaining fears of more terrorist attacks.
