The terrorist attack on September 11th, 2001, was more devastating to the United States than Pearl Harbor. More lives were lost when the towers fell then when the Japanese attacked United States in Hawaii. The difference between the attacks was 9/11 was against civilians, not the military. No one could’ve imagined anything good or productive coming out of these terrorist attacks. The shear lost of life and destruction staggered the mind.
9/11 had a huge impact on not only America but the full world. I will discuss ways in which 9/11 has affected America as a whole, the people of America, society and other general facts about 9/11. Firstly I will discuss what happened on September, 11 2001. It was about 8:45am when the American airline crashed into the World Trade Centre North Tower, and only 18 minutes after the first plane had crashed into the North Tower, a second plane had flown into the South Tower of the Trade Centre.
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.
Following the 9-11 attacks, on September 17th 2001, President George. W.Bush confirmed to America and the watching world Osama Bin Laden the,dictator and ruler of the terrorist organisation Al-Qaeda was the plotting mastermind behind these vicious attacks. The President made a history defining speech on November 10, 2001, declaring a Global “War on Terror”, which in turn highlights the overall large scale significance of 9-11, and furthermore highlighting the renewed stance and direction US Domestic and Foreign Policy was taking as well as an unprecedented Presidential phase within US Politics and Government, in the wake of these terror attacks. Furthermore the significance of 9-11 was evidenced in Bush’s speech in which he articulated, “we
In the history of America, the history of the world, never had such unexpected terror descended from the skies. In one hour, the peace and relative quite of 9:45 AM in New York City, was disrupted by a plane circling overhead. Curiosity turned to aghast and shock as the plane started diving toward one of the twin towers. It crashed into an upper story of the building, spewing fire and showering those below with debris. This was only one of 4 hijacked planes, heading toward other United States landmarks.
The homeland security system of the United States is a large machine. It is an all-encompassing machine that produces copious amounts of intelligence and information. How the information is processed, analyzed and distributed is another mechanism of the machine. There are many civil liberty issues that have recently arisen from post 9/11 policies set in place by previous and current administrations. These issues stem from intelligence collection methods in all facets of collection.
On September 1, 2001, an alleged terrorist attack was committed against the United States of America, leaving millions confused, wondering what really happened. The terrorist attack consisted of 19 hijackers taking control of four different planes heading toward the west coast. Those four planes were redirected toward The World Trade Center, The Pentagon, and the fourth landed in Pennsylvania. Two of the planes flew directly into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, engulfing them in flames from the jet fuel, eventually leaving the buildings to collapse, killing thousands. The Twin Towers however, were build with intent to withstand high volumes of heat, so how could jet fuel produce enough heat to melt the structure and cause the building
The terror attacks on 9/11 were one of the most monumental yet tragic moments in American history, so we will always remember and honor the lives stolen from us. However, we are so quick to forget the quiet before the storm, the day before the chaos. This is notably discerned when regarding schools and its issues through TIME Magazine and the New York Times. While researching, one understands that there are several similarities between society then and present day.
The reason that historians differ on the causes, effects, and who was responsible for “historical events” is because memory is reconstructive and unreliable. Therefore the written history of 9-11 is affected by bias because the writers, children, and adults memories are affected by the schemas of each one’s individual culture. This can change the recollection of 9-11 and other traumatic events. Memories linked to 9-11 differ between different cultures.
In the midst of catastrophic disasters in the United States within the past decade such as 9/11, American airport bombing attempts, and the birth of various terrorist groups across the country, the implementation of the Transportation Security Administration continues to remain its high priority. Although welcomed with optimism, the new millennium of America unfortunately witnessed the heavy hitting effects of Terrorism, and its strikes against America’s national security. This abrupt cause for concern devastated the country and left the nation vulnerable to such detrimental outside forces as the Al-Qaeda. Only one collective motive of America, safety, was to the forefront of the U.S. government’s train of thought. The situation had to be handled
