Nineteen militants who were suicide bombers crashed into the Twin Towers, Pentagon, and a Pennsylvania field which had a central and global effect on the world caused by global terrorism increase and the spread of the group Islamic Extremist. Many months before the assault some of the terrorists were already living in America.
Exactly two decades ago, on August 23, 1996, Osama bin Laden declared war on the United States. At the time, few people paid much attention. But it was the start of what’s now the Twenty Years’ War between the United States and al-Qaeda a conflict that both sides have lost. Osama bin Laden had already tried to hit the world trading towers in 1993. 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.
One flight has hit the North Twin Tower in New York city and another has hit the South Twin Tower. The third hit on the Pentagon and last fourth one crashed into a field in Shanks Ville, the unidentified direction of Pennsylvania. Almost three thousand people were slaughtered in the 9/11 attack. This attack was the moving fact in American society the reason is it as increased many security changes in the America. The war was sustained till 10 years between Iraq and Afghanistan.
The fourth plane crashed into an empty field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The rescue efforts and excavation of what became known as Ground Zero, but it wasn’t the first time it had been attacked. One World Trade Center was the site of a terrorist bombing on February 26, 1993. A total of 19 terrorists hijacked the four planes on 9/11. All of the men were from nations in the Middle East.
Over three thousand people were killed during the attack in New York and Washington D.C. This included four hundred police officers and firefighters. But, we didn’t let this tragedy define us, we fought back. This is what happened on september eleventh. Nineteen activist connected with Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda hijacked four american airlines and carried out a suicide attack against the targets in america.
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 government ignored warnings when Al-Qaeda leader, Osama Bin Laden, had made a statement on the subject of using aircraft in an attack against the US but it wasn’t taken seriously(Langley, 69).There were 19 hijackers in total, 5 being in each plane except for the one that crashed into Pennsylvania which had 4 hijackers in it (Langley, 20) AA Flight 11 was the plane that hit the northern tower
Afterwards, Flight 77 blasted into the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. The passengers on Flight 93 managed to attack the hijackers; however, they crashed and there were no survivors. 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”.
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).
Today I sit and ponder on what kind of America are my children growing up in and what kind of America are we going to see for our grandchildren and future generations. Let’s be honest, we have neighborhoods and cities terrorized by home grown gangs and gangs that have moved in from other countries. Just a month ago a nine year old boy was brutally executed by a gang in Chicago and now to complicate our concerns, we are constantly wondering when the “sleeper cells” of Islamic terrorist in America are going to awaken, if not already, and are we going to be a nation like Israel who constantly lives under some form of attack on a daily scale. Please understand, I am not attacking Muslims; however, I am speaking about Muslim extremist. I would
On December 2nd, an incident happened in San Bernardino that shocked the nation. Although, we see a shooting on the news almost daily, the 2015 San Bernardino shooting that killed fourteen people and harmed twenty-two others still took America to a shock. The shooting consisted of two people, who happened to be married and had a six-month-old child, went into a mental hospital facility and opened fire on the patients and staff that worked or lived there. The male of the couple happened to work for the hospital but nobody knows the motive behind why the couple did what they did. The couple that committed the mass shooting and attempted to commit a mass bombing were told to be in the Islamic culture.
