An important moment in history was the Sept. 11th suicide attacks on the U.S. that was coordinated by Al-Qaeda, sending our country into another war. The 9/11 attacks were so significant to the world because it was the biggest planned hijacking and took the most innocent lives during the 21st century.

On September 11, 2001 two planes crashed into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City.

On September 11, 2001, 19 terrorists from the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda caused the most deadliest attacks on American soil in U.S. history.

September 11, 2001 On this early Tuesday morning, great tragedy was about to happen to America when 19 Islamic terrorists affiliated with al-Qaeda hijacked four of our jet airliners.

A day of chaos, confusion, and pure tragedy has left America and every American, whose day stopped on September 11th, 2001, permanently scarred.

September 11th, 2001 In my perspective, what happened on September 11th, 2001, was an act of terrorism on the United States. It was a decade ago that 19 terrorists took control of four planes, flew two into the twin towers of the World Trade Center, hit the Pentagon with a third, and crashed the fourth in a field in Pennsylvania after passengers resisted and made it impossible for the terrorists to complete their mission. The government also thought that 9/11 was an act of terrorism put on by the Muslims. While conspiracy theorists have a different perspective because they believe that there was more to this attack, it was plotted out and people from America were in on it. There have been many different perspectives on what really happened on this day.

On September 11, 2001 two planes crashed into the World Trade Center, a third into the Pentagon, and a fourth into a Pennsylvania field. This day was the deadliest attack of by foreign enemies on American soil. Later it was learned that the hijackers had received flight training in the United States.

In October 2010, at a flight school 30 miles northwest of Boston, Federal officials arrested dozens of illegal immigrants, including the owner and students who received clearance by the U.S. Government despite of the strict guidelines put in place after the September 11 attacks.
