In this paper we will examine the impact of 9/11 on Americans and the U.S. economy and why the U.S. responded to the terrorism by enacting the USA Patriot act to “protect” America, which had become a big controversial issue to Americans. Another topic we will discuss is the negative effects of the Patriot Act such as violating Americans civil liberties and how the government stereotyped and secretly arrested Arab or Muslim citizens. The tragedy of 9/11 has impacted America in many ways and ever since then, America has made a lot of changes to prevent another tragedy, such as the national security which is tighter than it has ever been in recent years, especially in airports. According to Jennie Wood’s article, she mentions that the airport has way too many restrictions on what to bring in the plane for every traveler, such as, “Liquids and toiletries have to be a certain size and placed in clear, sealed bags. No food or bottled water is allowed through security.
Many people have difficulty understanding what happened at the pentagon on 9/11 because of the little video evidence there is. The first thing people have problem understanding how there was only a 75-foot hole when supposedly a plane had crashed through it. An professor of structural engineering from Purdue University explains that “one wing
Many people have been misunderstood before they became great. For example, early in life Albert Einstein was misunderstood. He had Asperges making him think differently and causing the other students to think he was weird. He also dropped out of high school, which was not considered to good of a choice for someone planning on becoming an inventor. However in spite of all that he ended up inventing the atomic bomb considered by many to be one of the greatest inventions of all time.
LIT 2012 “Some say the world will end in fire”: Reading the Bomb in Alas, Babylon. The Bomb changed everything. It brought the specter of the annihilation of humanity to the forefront of everyone’s minds. This was especially true of the authors of the time. The apocalyptic novel became an important component of contemporary literature; in this instance Pat Frank’s Alas, Babylon.
The Looming Tower “The Looming Tower,” the title of Lawrence Wright’s remarkable new book about Al Qaeda and 9/11, refers not only to the doomed towers of the World Trade Center, but also to a passage in the Koran, which Osama bin Laden quoted several times in a speech exhorting the 19 hijackers to become martyrs to their cause: “Wherever you are, death will find you/even in the looming tower.” Wright’s book, based on more than 500 interviews gives the reader a searing view of the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, a view that is at once wrenchingly intimate and boldly sweeping in its historical perspective The story begins in November 1948 with Sayyid Qutb, a middle-aged Egyptian writer, coming to America amidst a crisis of faith. When he returned to Egypt a couple years later, he did so having become radicalized. In America he saw only what he recognized as depravity and would go on to write screeds decrying the materialism of the West, individual freedoms, etc. He saw America as a "spiritual wasteland" which celebrated sexuality and relegated religion to the backwaters. Qutb serves as a suitable entry point because his views would form the basis of radical Islam as we know it today.
The second Pearl Harbor, the day of infamy, the start of the War on Terrorism—all of these titles describe the unforgettable day of September 11, 2001. On this day, terrorist hijacked four planes, proceeded to destroy the World Trade Centers, and cripple the Pentagon. Or did they? Immediately following the horrible attacks, various theorists thought of outlandish conspiracies regarding 9/11, such as that the U.S. planted bombs to start the War on Terrorism. To some these conspiracies may seem believable; however, after analyzing them one realizes that there is more doubt than theorists relay.
Armed Pilots 1 A LOOK AT THE ARGUMENT OF ARMING PILOTS A look at the argument of arming airline pilots D M Aeronautical Science for Management AGMT 202 Arming Pilots 2 ABSTRACT: This paper gives both sides to the argument about pilots carrying guns in the cockpits. While on the one hand the pilots would be able to protect themselves and their passengers if they carried guns, on the other hand there are those pilots that have never had gun training and do not care to handle guns. When they became pilots they did not take into consideration that they might have to become 'soldiers of the air' as well. Armed pilots 3 A look at the argument of arming airline pilots On the subject of airline safety, I feel that the consideration of guns being carried by pilots is astoundingly important. There has been much controversy as to whether pilots should be allowed to carry guns in the cockpit.
Firstly, if the government of the United States tried to pass the PATRIOT ACT of 2001 today, they would have a much tougher time. After the attacks of September 11th, 2001, the whole American nation was swept with overwhelming fear, anger and patriotism. An analogy for this
