September 11, 2001 is a day that will forever be remembered by all Americans; it was the day in which 2,823 people were killed due to the terrorist attacks performed by the terrorist group Al-Qaeda. Up to this day there are many people who do not know all the facts about this day and do not even know the number of plane crashes that occurred due to Al-Qaeda’s terrorist plans. Al-Qaeda is a terrorist organization that was started by Osama Bin Laden. This terrorist group is a racist organization whose philosophy is described as centralization of decision and decentralization of execution. This group has admitted they are responsible for the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. They stated that the United States was actively oppressing and
At the point when 9/11 happened, I was an eighth grader in South Florida, and an amazingly naive nationalist. I observed with sickening apprehension as the second tower fell live on the TV in my show class. I needed activity! How set out the "scalawags" do such a marvel to my kindred Americans!
The topic of the interview used for the interview was 9/11. 9/11 was used because 9/11 was a big point in American History and it is always an interesting to get peoples opinions about 9/11 because there are so many different stories that people have about what they experienced that day. The interviewee was Carolyn Alexander and she was interviewed because even though she lived on the west coast when 9/11 happened, she was still impacted in multiple ways. Carolyn was impacted because she was just as surprised as everybody else when she found out about 9/11.
Did you know, that one person escaped the tower with seconds to spare? A man named Ron DiFrancesco was trying to escape from the South tower, after the North Tower had been attacked, when the second hijacked plane hit between floor 77 and floor 85 of the South Tower. The explosion threw him against the wall, but, however, he was able to carry on to the ground floor from floor 81 in the same time the building was standing after the attack, and then it had collapsed behind him as he was escaping from the building. The attacks on September 11, 2001 had many important effects such as a change in immigrations laws, starting wars, and changed airport rules.
is: the way do we comprehend what happened, and in what capacity would we be able to make headway?
On September 11, a plane crashed into The World Trade Center, demolishing both buildings. Many people were affected by this tragedy, some even were diagnosed with cancer from trying to clean up ground zero. There are speculations that the people who did have health issues were the ones not wearing the respirators, and many died because of not protecting themselves from the dangerous fumes. Some did not realize that, it could be the last day they might see their families and rushed out without saying goodbyes for the last time. There was little help provided to the sick workers. The lawyers of the workers treat them more as heros then the people who employed them to help clean up after the World Trade Center attack. There were many rising concerns given after the attack and a vast majority of people wish those concerns would be addressed.
On Thursday I asked a close family friend questions about important United States history events such as 9/11, Obama’s inauguration, Hurricane Katrina, the Recession, Pluto not being a planet anymore, and the fall of Facebook and Myspace. Many other US events were mentioned, but those five were the ones she remembered the most. Along with her opinions I also spoke or discussed my opinions about police brutality that’s currently happening and the current debates between who’s going to be the next president of the United States. We also spoke of which events were most important and impacted the US more than the other options. On that last topic we had different opinions on which were more beneficial. All of the historical events were beneficial and impacted the United States in some way and molded the actions of Americans in one way or another.
September 11, 2001 is one of the most infamous dates in American history. On this day, 19 radicalized Islamic militants hijacked four United States-based airplanes. Two of the planes were flown into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. Thousands of first responders, occupants of the Towers and bystanders were killed or injured. The third plane flew into the Pentagon in Washington D.C. and 125 people were killed. The passengers on the fourth plane revolted and forced the hijackers to crash into a field in Stony Creek, Pennsylvania. A total of 3,000 people were killed and over 6,000 were injured that day (“9/11 Attacks” 1). After the most detrimental terrorist attack in the history of the United States, action needed to
I have read the abc news article for the fifteenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. I disagree with how they interpreted 9/11 after 15 years, because there is so much more that can mentioned in details. The new generations that are coming into this world need to know more than just how many people died in 9/11 and how we are honoring them. We need to know about how much 9/11 affected our nation as a whole. As well as all the after effects 9/11 had on America, and all of the other nations. In fact, there should be details about the persons that were behind it, and how much we have grown, or how we can keep moving forward. All of this information should written there, because this was one the most historical moments
What was the real story of September 11, 2001? In New York City, what seemed to be a normal day for everyone changed -- a plane traveling very fast crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center at 8:46 a.m. Everyone thought it was an accident until another plane crashed into the other twin tower at 9:02 a.m. After the second crash, it was apparent that the occurrence wasn’t an accident. Then, people started to learn that four passengers airplanes had been hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda members behind the work of Osama Bin Laden. The third plane was a minor attack hitting the Pentagon and killing many people working inside the building. Later, the fourth plane which was thought to be heading towards the White House or the Capitol Building

September 11, 2001 is a day that America will never forget. Most Americans were starting their day, drinking their favorite morning goodness, and getting ready for the day, when a plane flew into the World Trade Center on the television. Just after eight o’clock American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into World Trade Center’s North Tower, and all eyes tuned into New York City to see the catastrophic event. Twenty minutes later during the live news broadcast, United Airlines Flight 175 collided with the World Trade Center’s South Tower. The carnage did not stop there, shortly after nine-thirty American Airlines Flight 77 struck the western face of the Pentagon, and thirty minutes later, United Airlines Flight 93 came down in a field near Shanksville,
1. Explain the major tactical phases of a terrorist operation and describe the considerations used by terrorists in selecting targets and identify the three major elements that define 9/11 as a terrorist attack.
In accordance with the National Commission which was concerned about inadequate information sharing following 9/11. (Cordner, Scarborough 2010) I believe it's worth noting that across the board the internalized intelligence and lack of transfer of information has led to a lot of pointed fingers from agencies as to whom could have had a better potential of preventing the attacks of 9/11.
Based on this week's reading and lesson notes, evaluate the arguments and evidence that terrorist groups are likely or unlikely to use CBRN weapon. In particular, what do you think are the prospects for al Qaeda and/or other sub-state actors to acquire and use a CBRN weapon in a foreign country? In the United States? Why or why not?
