There have been a number of effects on the everyday lives of Americans made by the 9/11 attacks on the U.S. First of all, United States troops invaded Afghanistan less than a month after the World Trade Center attacks to release al-Qaeda’s grip on the Middle East. In 2003, the United States troops invaded Iraq, which was not directly related to the attacks but was an important weapon in the War of Terror. The United States stepped their game up in many departments around the country. They upgraded the airport security, had a lockdown on immigration and deportation, and many more things that could ever be a threat to the U.S. and its
One whole week was dedicated to learning the proper way to fall/land. An airplane shell is used for training. Jumpers learn how to sit, stand and shuffle to the jump door while safely on the ground. Soldiers jump from the door, six inches off the ground, and perform a PLF (parachute landing fall). After satisfactory performance in the mock airplane soldiers move to the jump towers.
Of the three planes that crashed, two of the planes hit the Twin Towers, and one hit the Pentagon. The plane that didn’t hit anything had passengers that fought back and crashed it into a field in Pennsylvania.

America had lots of changes to make the attacks on September 11, 2001. Little did we know that this would affect the nation for years to come. Shortly after the attacks on 9/11 the Government acted very quickly. As stated in an article by Jaeshin Kim, “The Bush Administration launched the bombing of Afghanistan, and Congress passed the USA PATRIOT Act allowing law enforcement powers to detain foreign nationals or immigrants suspected of terrorism” (Kim 1). In situations as these, the President has no option but to quickly react, so he did.

He first begins with the “Japanese” enemies and then ends the book with famous nation wide radio speech of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Walter makes the book different from other books written about this specific day he uses human drama of this attack: spies behind it: Japanese pilots: specific crews struck in warships: generals: sailors: the housewives: men in bases and airfields: children that had a comeback that was filled with hatred and courage. During the first chapters the author just goes over the time and introduces many characters' names, he describes every detail about what was going on in Japan and Hawaii, also the days and hours on high sea before the attack.

“That was my first day back to work” stated Pam. She had just returned to work that day from maternity leave of her youngest child. “Before going into work that day and even the moment before I found out the planes hit, I was having a good day.

About eight months into his first term as president Bush had to deal with one of the worst tragedies in U.S. history, the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Although many of his moves during this time of turmoil in the United States were viewed as necessary and patriotic, a few years after the attacks information surfaced that completely destroyed Bush’s image. Long before the 9/11 attacks in 2001, during the Clinton administration, intelligence was collected that connected Al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin-Laden to the 1998 bombings of two US embassies in Africa.
