Brooke McDaniel “Is 9/11 a Conspiracy?” September 11, 2001 was unquestionably a tragic day for America and the world. While the 3,000-plus deaths in American caused support and tears from around the world, now many worldwide citizens resent or even hate the country that deepened up the War on Terror. But for many in the country, and an astounding number of foreign citizens, the truth about what really took place on September 11, 2001 remains under relentless scrutiny and doubt.

What happened that day, cost the U.S. $20 billion dollars and caused the global market to fall over $100 billion dollars. This made it easier for our government to trade certain goods with other certain countries. This is also a good excuse to raise taxes and the prices of oil and anything else people need so the government is spending money but maybe not as much as they were receiving.
