Introduction Event of 9/11 without a doubt considered to be one of largest disastrous American society has experienced. The shock society underwent uncountable. Nobody could expect to happen those events. Even the security services of US could not prevent the terrorist attack. Discussion and Synthesis The results of tragedy have alarmed American government so that new measures of security required to be applied all over across the country.
Following the devastating September 11 attacks, which we today remember as 9/11, America has made it a top priority to increase security and to institute new regulations in order to deter the possibility of another such attack. With many people doubting the effectiveness of their regulations and criticizing their techniques, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) continues with their
While the nation drifted through the dog days, however, a group of terrorists was in the final stages of planning a series of attacks that would kill 3,000 people on September 11. Much of the federal government seemed to have been in a summer daze as well, missing the warning signs of what would become the deadliest act of terrorism on U.S. soil. While some in the intelligence community raised red flags, the White House had brushed off warnings of an impending attack and the CIA was failing to share information with the FBI about the terrorists ' travels. It took 99 days—until December 19, 2001—for the fires at Ground Zero to be extinguished.Cleanup at Ground Zero wasn 't officially completed until May 30, 2002. It took 3.1 million hours of labor to clean up 1.8 million tons of debris at a total cost of cleanup of $750
The Articles of Confederation were approved on November 1777, which left many constraints on the federal government. The people were so worried about corruption, that they left the government powerless on all affairs, including foreign relations, military, Indian issues, and interstate disputes. In addition it denied Congress the power of taxation, the states were supposed to donate money to the government, which rarely occured. Each state had only one vote in Congress, but could send as many as seven delegates or as few as two, but if they divided equally on an issue the state lost its vote. There was not a President or independent executive and no veto over legislate decisions.
First impressions, positive or negative, can influence long term relations. However, for many interviewed in this report, those opinions where "negative" (Driscoll 75). The bombings held great significance during this time period because it was the first time that American society was introduced to foreign terrorist operatives and their malicious acts of horror. Up until this incident, the largest terrorist attack suffered on U.S. soil was the Oklahoma City bombings carried out by homegrown terrorist Timothy McVeigh (Oklahoma City Bombing 20 Years Later). Now that the American public had witnessed an attack directed specifically at the U.S. government on foreign territory, attention was brought to the encroaching presence of America on the world stage, reminiscent of the USSR in Eastern Europe.
According to “9/11 Attack,” this response manifested as the attacks on World Trade Center on September 11th, where approximately three thousand and four hundred people lost their lives. The journalism and photography coverage of this major event played a significant role in the creation of the Patriot Act and other controversial actions made by the American
Clearly, had the CIA and FBI shared information with each other, connected the dots on known terrorist members, and subsequently gave that information to local law enforcement the attacks of September 11, 2001 may have been preventable. I am most certain that the families of the 2,752 people that died on that day would love nothing more than to see increase communication between federal agencies and local law enforcement. Fortunately, the results and recommendations of the 9/11 commission report may tremendous improvements in the communication for these law enforcement professionals (The 9/11 Commission Report, 2002). Some of those improvements included adding additional analysts to sort through the enormous amounts of intelligence, and reducing communication barriers between local and federal law enforcement agencies (The 9/11 Commission Report, 2002). Another area of opportunity included revamping the technology of communication via police radios.
This is because of homeland security measures of US government. The homeland security is the term originated within the context of the September 11, 2001, attacks and resultant American policy adaptations; the fundamental concept has been periodically applied to during historical periods of national security and political crises. But the measures taken in the name of security were seriously challenging the basic civil liberties of citizens. Department of Homeland Security mandate largely overlooked by the press and it requires the FBI, CIA, state, and local governments to share intelligence reports with the department upon command, without
Due to the attacks on September 9, 2001, the United States deals with long lasting effects such as anti-Islamic hate crimes, shape of the new generation, and civil privacy issues. Even though Islam is the second largest religion in the world, people
In 2001 only a little over a month after 911 The Patriot Act was passed. On the surface the act seems to be concerned with the safety of the American people; however it was reactionary, a result of the culture of fear created by America’s first experience with terrorism, a word that still holds a powerful
We value our freedom above all else, going to nearly any cost to defend it. Along with this, however, we also gain a strong attachment to our privacy, defending it as vivaciously as we do our freedom. This attachment to privacy is evidenced by the outrage expressed at the NSA’s surveillance programs. These programs were set up by the US government to detect terrorists and criminals operating covertly within our borders, and included such activities as warrantless wiretapping and recording of all internet traffic. While these activities are disturbing, and should definitely have been more well-regulated and transparent, they are necessary for the security of our country.
