During the attacks, they seized control the same airlines. 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 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.
Nobody knew, it was a rude awakening. If the terrorist did not blend in officers would be able to arrest them as fast as possible, but before officers do anything they must take as many safety measures as needed. It was all 10,000 gallons of jet fuel ready to destroy America forever. The time is taking its precious little... It is 9:00 AM, American airline #11 crashed in between the 93rd-99th floor of the North Tower.
But russia later found out the truth as they found much of the plane had survived and they had hold of the pilot who flew it. This brang the two nations to a nuclear war.

The Cuban Missile Crisis ( October 15th 1962) This crisis was between the United nations and the Soviet union caused a major problem.The soviets began to place some weapons like bombs into cuba . Cuba then decided that they would go under quarantine which at the time was seen as an act of war.
September 11, 2001: this date has changed America forever. How far has airport security come so it can be as safe as it can be for all boarding passengers? Shortly after the terrorist attack on the United States of America, airports were closed; airports needed to recuperate by inheriting better technology. Airports started to use better scanners called Computer Tomography Scanners. This scanner checks baggage and carry on 's for harmful items.
Let’s look at what happen post 9/11. After it’s devastation, the Department of Homeland Security was created to assist in fighting the “war” against terrorism. The DHS implemented many “strategies” to help fight this war, including increasing airport security. American parents protested that TSA agents were groping their kids, and “(Janet) Napolitano (former DHS Secretary) defiantly retorted that if people did not want their children groped, they should yield and use the unpopular full-body machines – the machines being sold by her predecessor, (Michael) Chertoff” (Turley, 3). These full body scanners, which Chertoff had a hand in getting into the airports, were “heavily criticized (and little tested)”, and were sold by a company which was a client of Chertoff’s consulting agency (Turley, 3).
What the most common story of what had happened on 9/11, was that 4 planes were hijacked; 2 crashed into the Twin Towers, 1 into the Pentagon, and another into a field in Pennsylvania. After the incident, some of the citizens rights were taken away through the Patriot Act. Spying on our own citizens worrying about which ones among us were terrorists and the general feeling of insecurity. We didn’t use to scare so easily, we used to pay attention to our elected officials and public servants and we used to not see each other as the main threat. 3000+ people died on 9/11, yet our civil liberties to this day are still under attack but not from a foreign force, it’s now from ourselves, ignorance, and over reliance and incorrect trust being placed on our government, Which has always been, and moving forward should be of the people, by the people, and for the
The captains recited an informal motto between 100-yard sprints at training camp: "Be ready to sacrifice." Alaura: Now we are going back to more tragic new about the twin tower attack Fani: We have more shocking news, we have found out that our airline planes were hijacked by Ziad Jarrah, one of the members of Osama Bin Laden. This wasn’t an accident it seems like it was planned. Alaura: But why would they want to do something this bad! Jorge: Well Nobody's knows but we think it’s because they want to destroy us because we have such a wealthy and rich country, and New York is the most popular and successful state.
Even though the attacks on the World Trade Center was well documented and publicized, the FBI confiscated all footage from nearby businesses that may have had video recordings capturing the attacks on the Pentagon. The only evidence of Flight 77
The government was much more focused on Russia and dealing with the communists. By not keeping an eye on the epidemic they were unprepared for the spark in the drug and failed to acknowledge the epidemic until late into the cocaine epidemic.

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.

The Dropping of the Atomic Bombs August 6, 1945 and August 9, 1945 were days thought no one believed would happen. Only one country in history has ever used an atomic bomb against another nation, and that nation is the United States of America. The atomic bombs were being used against Japan towards the end of World War II because of the bombing of pearl harbor. The United States was completely justified in dropping the bombs on Japan. Although some do not agree with using the atomic bombs, the bombs were dropped, changing the war along with the rest of the world.
