Osama bin Laden planned the September 11 attacks after being “inspired” by a chance discussion about a plane crash in the US, Al-Qaeda propaganda has claimed. Bin Laden, then the head of al-Qaeda, was apparently less interested in the motive than in how the disaster could be developed into a deadly new strategy. On hearing about the EgyptAir crash, al-Masra claimed he asked why didn 't he crash
I think that during W.W.2, When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor that it was a terrorist attack. This event reminds me of 9/11 because It happened out of nowhere. We were also not at war at the time with Iraq. The same events that could relate to each other is They both devastated America, not only that but they both attacked us with planes. However The planes’ events were not alike, the planes that attacked at Pearl Harbor were bombing planes and the attack on 9/11 the planes that were driven into the twin towers were commercial airlines.
September 11th, 2001: The American people will remember this day as the day the unthinkable happened: someone, or rather a group of people, penetrated America’s defenses and turned our own airplanes on us. Crashing several planes into different important federal buildings, these terrorists spread terror throughout the country. Preceding the terrible events on September 11th, 2001, the American Secret Services have made many mistakes in regard to the possibility of preventing 9/11. The Secret Services, mainly the CIA and the FBI, have made a great lot of mistakes. A teletype regarding known facts about a suspected Islamic extremist, Zacarias Moussaoui, was sent to the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Customs Service, the State Department, the Immigration and Naturalization Services, and the Secret Service (Taylor).
On September 11, 2001 changed America forever. Two planes crashed into the Twin Towers killing thousands of people. George W Bush initial reaction as Commander in Chief of the 9/11 attack was a concern and strictly business with persona. After the emergency meeting with the President Cabinet his next move was to gain support from our allies. After pinpointing our enemy 's and their location.
The Red Scare of 1919-1920 was a nationwide fear of communists, socialists, anarchists, and more. The September 11th terrorist attack that took place in 2001 in New York City, Manhattan, Arlington County and Virginia was a four series coordinated terrorist attack by a Islamic terrorist group. They both have many similarities. In the Red Scare a post office discovered 38 bombs that had been mailed to leading Americans politicians and capitalist after that an Italian anarchist was blown up. The nation’s top law enforcement official then became convinced that there was a plot underway.
Pearl Harbor was a surprise terrorist attack on U.S soil from a foreign country, Japan.This attack happen when Japan was messing with China.Japan wanted to take over parts of China and try to take its import markets.The U.S was unhappy for the way of Japan treating with China therefore, the United states put trade embargoes on Japan.The United States told Japan to stop.Japan was more determined and stood their ground that they 're not going to back down.In the nineteen forties Japan was a belligerent country.In nineteen fourty one December seventh, over one hundred fire figther planes attacked the american military bases in Hawaii.It was tragic moment, the attack lasted about two hours.The presdient, Frankelin D.

Osama bin Laden and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed were responsible for plotting 9/11. Khalid Sheik Mohammed was the 9/11 operational commander who initially planned an attack on the United States, which involved hijacking ten planes which were to be flown into buildings on both the west and east coasts. Osama bin laden attacked the United States because of his hatred for the US and his yearning for revenge against the US. Bin Laden was motivated by the belief that the “Islamic world has been tasting [humiliation and degradation] for 80 years” by Western powers (27). For example, Saudi Arabia rejected Osama bin Laden’s offer to deploy his army to defend Saudi Arabia from Saddam Hussein’s invasion; instead, the Saudis sought the protection of the United
A sequence of harmonized suicide-terror attacks planned by terror group al-Qaeda on the United States occurred September 11th , 2001. Four commercial airlines were hijacked that morning, by 19 al -Qaeda terrorists. Intentionally, the hijackers drove two planes to New York City and crashed them into Twin Towers, one plane was flown to Arlington Virginia and crashed into the West Wing of the Pentagon, and the as the fourth plane was supposedly on its way to fly into the white house, the passengers took control of the hijackers and crashed the plane into a field in rural Pennsylvania. However, this is only the story that the government wants the people to believe. The secrets behind the 9/11 attacks on 9/11/2000 are extremely more horrific.

and the first US Hijacking was on May 1, 1961 when a florida-bound plane was taken to Cuba (Hijacking, n.p.) Another attack on the twin towers before 9/11 occurred on 2/26/1993 when a bomb was placed in the back of a van and driven to the base of the Twin Towers and exploded, about 6 people were killed, but thousands were injured (Langley, 42).

The planes targeted major military and economic centers including The World Trade Center in New York City, and the Pentagon, a fourth plane was brought down in a field in Pennsylvania, but many believe this was intended to hit The White House or congressional building. Often referred to 9/11, the attacks resulted in many deaths and millions of dollars’ worth of destruction, causing major U.S. initiatives to combat terrorism and defining the presidency of George W. Bush.9/11 caused an economic downwards spiral resulting in a stock market slump and later contributed to a recession. The attacks

Now security in the world had been at high alert because they don’t know who the terrorist are going to strike next. Two actions about what the U.S. did for the terrorism is that the people in the country started to wear the American flag and put them in their porches and cars.
This was put into effect after some people tried to sneak liquid explosives onto the aircraft. These three things weren’t all the changes made, but these are the ones that made the biggest impact. Airport security has intensified throughout the United States since the terrorist attacks in 2001. Airport security has intensified by having peoples ID Name and picture must match what is on ticket. Before 9/11 there was no way to tell that if the passenger 's name and picture
Near the explosion was a phone booth and inside was a note left by FALN stating, “we … take full responsibility for the especially detonated (sic) bomb that exploded today at Fraunces Tavern, with reactionary corporate executives inside”(Bovsun, 2012). The note also stated the reason why they acted on this attack. FALN wanted revenge after three people were killed and eleven people were injured, one being a child in a restaurant in Puerto Rico that was bombed from the instruction of the CIA. (Sater & RAND CORP SANTA MONICA CA, 1981, p. 6) Another attack that happened in New York City were the four bombings that took place on Wednesday April 2, 1975, all within a forty minute time frame.

To comprehend the effects of September 11, 2001, (9/11) we must look at precise areas. We begin by focusing on the loss of life “the death of almost 3,000 people in the attack was a loss to New York City and to the nation” (Bram, Orr and Rapaport 2). Statistics show the ages of the victims extended from two to 85 years; also, according to CNN, “75-80 percent of the victims were men”.
