Terrorist Attack On 9-11 All of us have heard of the event “9/11”. In September 2001, when Osama Bin Laden decided to attack symbolic targets. He made the decision to attack the Pentagon, and the world trade centers (twin towers). The terrorist attack on 9-11 is one of the most known attacks because of how many people died, and mentally/emotionally hurt.
On September 1, 2001, the country of the United States of America along with the world changed. An orchestrated attack on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and another target- unknown but possibly the White House -put in place by a group of terrorist, made headlines all over the world. These attacks cost the lives of many people in Washington D.C, Shanksville, Pennsylvania, and New York City.
Documentaries inform viewers about significant events and often have a strong point to make about social, environmental and economic issues. In this case “Fahrenheit 9/11” directed and written by Michael Moore, focuses largely on the social aspect. The U.S. Political commentator and actor heavily addresses his biased ideas in the 2004 documentary, by using several film techniques, film styles, historical relevance, and with the help of montages and sarcasm to deliver his message about Bush’s awful and manipulating ways as being a ‘President’. Moore’s documentary is worthwhile to study and watch due to the blatant accusations he makes towards Bush, opening up ideas for the intended audience watching.
On the September 11th, 2001, the world stopped as New York City was attacked. The world famous Twin Towers we attacked. Suicidal terrorists hijacked commercial planes and crashed them into the tallest skyscrapers in the country. Thousands died, including the passengers on the planes, the people in the towers, the people in neighboring buildings, the people on the street and many first responders from all five boroughs and neighboring suburbs. One of the busiest cities in the world was at a standstill on that tragic day.
Rhetorical Analysis The fear that was created from 9/11 was no doubt over whelming. Charles Krauthammer argues in this article that we as Americans created this fear ourselves. He goes onto add in this article that was published in the Washington Post on September 8, 2011 that we as Americans overreacted to 9/11. Throughout his article he presents a lot of research and then analyses what he finds.

All this changed in an instant. On this horrific day in history, thousands of innocent people lost their lives.

On 9/11 the terrorists hijacked four planes, intending to do a lot harm to America they killed thousands of people. Two planes were flown into New York’s Twin Towers which were a symbol of prosperity. The third plane was deliberately flown into the Pentagon.

The events that occurred on September, 11, 2001 were among the most catastrophic events in American history. The events of the day were summarized as 19 militants associated with the terror group al-Qaeda hijacked four airplanes and carried out targeted attacks in the United States. Out of the four planes, two of them were flown into the World Trade Center in New York, a third one into the Pentagon in Washington and the fourth one crashing off course into a field.

Although there are a lot of conspiracy theories around the real motives and players behind the attack,
The 911 Conspiracy On the morning of September 9th, 2000, a shocking event, which would be remembered by the world, even 15 years later, occurred. 4 passenger airlines ----specifically, American Airlines Flight 11, United Airlines Flight 175, American Airlines Flight 77 and United Airlines Flight 93---- were hijacked by Al-Qaeda terrorists, and were respectively flown into the North and South towers of the World Trade Center, and the Pentagon in a suicide attack. Fortunately, Flight 93 which was initially planned to crash into Washington, D.C., was overtaken in a brave move by the passengers, and was crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. This is the event which struck the Firefighting and Law Enforcement agencies, with the former receiving 343 casualties, and the latter receiving 72.

They believed that it was impossible that someone could hate America that much. It was true, and it left lasting effects on Americans everywhere. Al-Qaeda had carried out a plan so horrific that it killed nearly three thousand people.

Even Iraq was experiencing human rights abuses, as well as Vietnam when it got involved with communism. Granted, some interventions are more difficult to swallow than others, but the fact that Americans are eager and able to prevent human suffering, regardless of their secondary interests, should not be referred to as unnecessary acts of
This was done not in the name of democracy, but as a means to secure our interests around the World. This abandonment of our values has been the catalysts to many of our nations problems
There is no virtue in the chaos of war. Men die in war and some men never want to see a guy left out there in the battle field. "That boy is alive. We are gonna send somebody to find him. And we are gonna get him the hell out of there" (saving private Ryan).
