The terrorist attacks on 9/11 have caused many debates over the years since they occurred back in 2001. Two American planes were hijacked and ran into the twin tower buildings, another was hijacked and headed for the pentagon, but thankfully never made it. Thousands of Americans lost their lives on the days of the attacks and to this day the sorrow hangs with us. Security was a huge debate of the time because America is supposed to be the safest nation there is, so how did this happen? America had lots of changes to make the attacks on September 11, 2001.
Some people can argue that the conspiracy of Lee Harvey Oswald did not act as a lone gunman. The main controversy for many Americans for years is what was the motives that driven Oswald to take down a beloved world leader. According to the New York Times, a friend of Oswald’s wife, Priscilla McMillian, made a statement that Oswald did not hate Kennedy, but rather dislike how the government system was running as a capitalism country and it was tragic that Kennedy supported how the United States was running that led Oswald to assassinate JFK. There is a possibility that Oswald was not a lone gunman because JFK was shot twice in two different areas, the first bullet was shot from the right side of his back and the second bullet was fired, aiming on the right side of his head causing a fatal wound that his head was almost blown. Having two bullets shot at two different places in Kennedy’s body provide a key evidence that Oswald had helped from a second
This does remind me of the attack on the World Trade Center. It's much like it because it was a surprise. No one knew it was going to happen but they. The outcome was devastating. Thousands of people died during these tragedies.
For any American around during the events of 9/11 this is a tragically reminiscent film of that day. Very simple in its execution, and heart wrenching to watch, "United 93" tells the story, in real time, of the American heroes who felled flight 93, United Airlines. The action that takes place on the plane feels very real, the tension brought on by the terrorists feels consequential and terrifying, and how sad it is to see these people say goodbye to their loved ones, and try to take control of their situation. The movie details the accounts of this horrific
Despite the cockpit recordings implying that the passengers fought, overpowered the terrorist and eventually crashed the plane into the ground, people think that the plane was actually shot down. One reason for this theory is that the actual crash site had very little debris, which showed no evidence of a plane crash. All that was left behind was a big crater. Nevertheless, authorities found some debris 10 miles away from the crash site. Which would support this theory, as if the plane was in fact shot it would have started exploding in the air and debris would have been spreed out by 10 miles.
9/11: The Day That Changed America Forever On September 11, 2001, nineteen terrorists boarded four planes, all transcontinental flights full of jet fuel. 9/11 became the first of many hijackings in the United States. The terrorists turned two flights into flying weapons of destruction, knocking down America’s tallest buildings. The third plane rammed into the Pentagon and the fourth plane was crashed into a field in Pennsylvania.
In the sixty years since World War 2, President Truman 's decision to drop the atomic bombs on Japan has been questioned by many people. The bombing caused many deaths but also clearly marked the end of the long drawn-out war. The justifications for the bombing are still however a widely discussed debate. Arguments supporting the justification of the bombing involve the President 's stern belief that the Japanese had brought it on themselves, and that the bombing would end the war and save many American lives. The counter-arguments were that the Japanese were already defeated and so ‘why was it necessary to drop the bomb?”.
To clarify, this alternate theory stemmed from multiple bystanders claiming they saw something moving upwards towards the aircraft before the outburst (TWA flight 800 crash - Atlantic Ocean off New York: 1996 4). It also became even more apparent when people said they saw a missile and information of the Navy ships being in the area and near the time of the crash had surfaced (Cole 30). The suspicion of this theory became even more strange due to the minute people had started making acquisitions of missile contact with TWA Flight 800 the FBI immediately became involved which then lead some to believe the NTSB was giving false reasoning for the crash to cover the Navy’s missile mistake (McDowell-Smith 2). Adding on to the suspicion, when the FBI discussed what they had seen with 736 trusting eye witnesses, many gave evidence supporting the idea of a missile, some of the witnesses even stated “ We saw what appeared to be a flare going straight up.
Suspiciously, eight and a half minute of a recording was missing, potentially making it impossible to uncover all of the evidence. This was the tragedy of the Watergate Scandal. One of the tapes, called “Smoking Gun” confirms Nixon had yielded justice. For Nixon violated the law by trying to cover up the investigation yet again, leading to three articles of impeachment.
Lots of theorize traders were given valuable news about the attacks and gained from the struggle. The Securities and Exchange Commission started with an insider trading inspection in which Osama bin Laden was a suspect, after gathering news from at least one Wall Street firm. Air Defense Was Told To ‘Stand Down’ The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) is ready to send out fighter jets, which can shoot down the plane if the plane is hijacked. On 9/11 NORAD board said they learned of the hijacking in time to order the jets.
The killing of the Al-Qaeda leader, which is a Radical Islamic Terrorist Group, founded in the 1980 's by Osama Bin Laden, was a huge justice in the U.S. and other countries. Bin Laden posed a global threat to the countries where Islam is not implemented, he was responsible for the September, 11th attacks back in 2001. He orchestrated it, and had it planned for months, he was planning more attacks on the U.S. after 9/11 as well. ("The World Trade Center History.")
The CIA 's potential involvement was frequently mentioned during the 1960s and 1970s when the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was involved in plots to assassinate foreign leaders, particularly Fidel Castro. According to author James Douglass, Kennedy was assassinated because he was turning away from the Cold War and seeking a negotiated peace with the Soviet Union. Accusations and confessions of and by alleged conspirators, as well as official government reports citing the CIA as uncooperative in investigations, have at times renewed interest in these conspiracy theories. The CIA is the first main group that was investigated by the Warren Commission .There are two main people in the CIA that we think to have something to do with it. William K. Harvey was a main suspect because he was a CIA clandestine services operative who help arrange assassination plots and was also seen with Oswald(JFK assassination co-conspirators).
The attack involved the hijacking of four total planes, one for each of the twin towers, another for the pentagon, and the last one was an unknown target. September 11 had a major impact on the United States by changing airport security,changing national security and entering the US into a new war. The changes
The 9/11 Truth movement is a social movement made up of individuals, and related organizations, who disbelieve the official investigation results of what happened during the September 11 attacks in 2001: that al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four airplanes, crashing two of them into the World Trade Center, one into the Pentagon and the final one, unintentionally, in a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Adherents of the movement refer to themselves as 9/11 truthers, 9/11 skeptics, or truth activists but are commonly referred to as conspiracy theorists by many who are not part of the movement. Semantics aside, they believe that the US government, agencies in the US, or individuals within were responsible for, or purposefully allowed, the 9/11 attacks and that the blame does not lie solely on previously unknown
