The resolution stated “The United States regards as vital to its national interest and to world peace the maintenance of international peace and security in Southeast Asia.” The resolution also gave President Johnson to take all actions necessary in order to prevent any armed attack against U.S. forces. The Senate passed the resolution with a vote of 88 to 2. Johnson’s popularity increased in reply to his “restrained” management of the crisis. The Johnson administration continued to use the resolution as an excuse to commence heavy bombing in North Vietnam. The resolution started a war that lasted nearly eight years and killed over 58,000 U.S. troops.
911 dramatically impacted societies broadly and law enforcement pointedly. According to the National Commission on Terrorists upon the United States (2004), it was clear after the September 11 terrorist attacks that intelligence sharing among all levels of law enforcement and the intelligence community was bankrupt (Carter & Carter, 2009). After the fact, there was a considerable investment of resources in many different government sectors for preparedness, response, and recovery from terrorist attacks. Shortly after the attack, President Bush signs the USA Patriot Act on October 2, 2001. It is intended, in Bush’s words, to "enhance the penalties that will fall on terrorists or anyone who helps them."
America had lots of changes to make the attacks on September 11, 2001. Little did we know that this would affect the nation for years to come. Shortly after the attacks on 9/11 the Government acted very quickly. As stated in an article by Jaeshin Kim, “The Bush Administration launched the bombing of Afghanistan, and Congress passed the USA PATRIOT Act allowing law enforcement powers to detain foreign nationals or immigrants suspected of terrorism” (Kim 1). In situations as these, the President has no option but to quickly react, so he did.
There have been a number of effects on the everyday lives of Americans made by the 9/11 attacks on the U.S. First of all, United States troops invaded Afghanistan less than a month after the World Trade Center attacks to release al-Qaeda’s grip on the Middle East. In 2003, the United States troops invaded Iraq, which was not directly related to the attacks but was an important weapon in the War of Terror. The United States stepped their game up in many departments around the country. They upgraded the airport security, had a lockdown on immigration and deportation, and many more things that could ever be a threat to the U.S. and its
Imagine for a second that every phone call you make, every text message you send, and every place you go is being constantly monitored by multiple governments. Well this is basically what the United State and United Kingdom's government is doing on a daily basis. The United States National Security Agency has been implementing projects in secret to monitoring people since 2001 but it would still be kept as a secret if Edward Snowden did not reveal this massive secret that was intruding the public’s privacy for years. The U.S. surveillance program started because of the September 9th, 2001 terrorist attack that hijacked airplanes and slammed them into the World Trade Center towers. It evolve over time and President George W. Bush’s "Terrorist Surveillance Program" had created PRISM.
On September 11, 2001 the world came to a stand still as a terroristic attack targeting our country killed 2,977 people. As fear ran high in every American house hold, the government quickly acted and on October 26 President George W. Bush passed the USA PATRIOT Act. The full title, "Uniting and Strenghtening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act", suggest how the government quickly acted in response to the new threat that we were experianceing. Although some may argue that it violates our civil liberties, the Patriot Act serves as an asset to help protect U.S. citizens by stopping terrorist attacks, giving the law enforcement tools to make investigations easier, and increases national security. What the Patriot Act does is it provides us with a tool to strengthen the ability that the government has to stop terrorist attacks from happening on U.S. soil.
The moment that the Twin Towers fell in New York, America became destined for change. In the wake of these attacks, the USA PATRIOT Act of 2001 was quickly passed through congress, and signed by then-president, George W. Bush. The act itself gives the FBI and other government agencies the ability to do and use certain methods, many of which are already used by other law enforcement organizations, to help prevent future terrorist attacks. Since then, this piece of legislation has been the center of much debate and controversy. But, there is ample reason to believe that the Patriot Act is needed and effective.
As you can see, both 911 and the Pearl Harbor attacks were both tragic events that has a huge impact to america with both similarities and differences. Both events were “sneak events,” no one knew they were going to happen. Both events happened because of foreign attackers. Both events were attacked by planes. The 911 attack was more of a symbolic attack, the world trade center represented the U.S. free market economy.
The commission’s purpose was to control railroads and their unfair business practices. The Interstate Commerce Commission 's jurisdiction gradually expanded beyond railroads to all common carriers except airplanes by nineteen forties. The ICC was also given the task of reinforcing railroad systems and administering labor disputes in interstate transport. The Interstate Commerce Commission imposed United State’s Supreme Court rulings that required the desegregation of passenger terminal facilities in the nineteen-fifties and
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered a joint investigation after someone painted a dugout wall in Wellsville, about 80 miles southeast of Buffalo. The message: A swastika, surrounded by the words, “Make America White Again.” After Donald Trump was elected, hate crimes have increased all over the nation. Racism is a clear issue that dates back farther than the Reconstruction era. The Ku Klux Klan was famously known for hate crimes and has influenced them even to this day.
