We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children. “- George Bush)[pic] ---*--- September 11, 2001 has been the darkest day in the life of every American. On that day, the radical Muslim group Al Qaeda led a series of suicide attacks that demolished American Trade Center, damaged Pentagon, destroyed the hijacked planes, and killed thousands of innocent Americans in the process. Such an unprecedented attack of this magnitude on the unprepared nation shook the confidence of the people, impaired their sense of security and changed their view of the world around them.
9/11 Report Stephanie Parris Everest University July 18, 2012 On September 11th, 2001 the United States was shaken to the core. Two terrorist hijacked planes crashed into the World Trade Center killing and injuring thousands of people. Another plane was hijacked and hit the Pentagon. Since then, the 9/11 Commission has issued report on the events, the short comings of security, and future recommendations to prevent such acts from reoccurring. Islamic terrorism had continued to grow, and Islamic terrorists had provided warning to the US that they would be attacking great numbers of people within the US.
Introduction The militarization of the nation’s police forces may have taken off after September 11, 2001, but in reality started long before that dreadful day. This paper is going to look at the issues which brought on not only the change itself but will also look at misconceptions and misunderstanding of the American public. Local police have been forced to evolve with the changing threat to their communities and learn more advance tactics to protecting their citizens. To begin we will look at what the issue is and why militarization of police has become an issue. The Issue Since September 11th 2001 the United States have been at war with terrorists who have brought the fight to America’s homeland.
During times of war, it is understandable that the Government will be more apt to protect its people. In the United States, terrorism has become a major concern. This has come to light more recently after the 9/11 attack in 2004. Americans have been told that terrorism is their biggest enemy. Though in the attempts to obtain security, the people of the United States are giving up their freedoms and others are having those same freedoms taken away from them.
“THE 9/11 ATTACK” On September 11, 2001, 19 terrorists (from a islamist group from Afganistan) hijacked three planes with intentions of crashing them into four buildings in the U.S. They set out to crash two of the planes into the Twin Towers of the world Trade Center, one into the The Pentagon (In Arlington, Virginia), and another into the United States Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. They were successful with all the crashes except the plane intended to crash into the United States Capitol building. The plane that was intended to crash there ended up crashing in a field near Shanksville, Pennyslvania. The attacks were said to be put together by Al-qaeda, which was an islamlist organization that was ran by a man named Osama bin Laden.

Kim Zaring Kenneth Smith English 1101 (crn 80128) Research Paper 13 November 2010 Devastation It was a normal morning on September 11, 2001, when the United States had a horrific attack that took place on our soil for just the third time in our history. There were four planes that had been hijacked, and these planes where being operated by terrorists. Two of the planes were flown directly into the two towers of the World Trade Centers that was located in New York City. The first plane hit the north tower of the World Trade Center around 8:46 A.M. (911 timeline). The second plane hit the South tower of the World Trade Center around 9:02 A.M. (911 timeline).
On September 11, 2001, The United States of America and the whole world witnessed the most extreme terrorist incident ever committed on U.S. soil. It was perpetrated by Muslim extremists using commercial airliners as projectiles of destruction. The attacks on September 11, 2001 left nearly three thousand people dead. Following the attacks there was much speculation as to why these attacks were not prevented from happening. In the months following the attacks, President Bush assigned Attorney General Ashcroft the task of producing legislation to assist the U.S. intelligence and law enforcement community to prevent such of an atrocity from occurring again.
If the response of the President results in a sustained conflict, then Congress does become involved; congress can authorize military action without formally declaring war. An example to look at: after the events of the 9/11 attacks or in the build-up to the Iraq War. Article 1 of the Constitution clearly gives Congress, not the president, the “power… to declare War” (U.S. Constitution, Cornell University). Seven years, a “war” has raged on in Iraq and has caused tax payers over 2.2 trillion dollars and has claimed over 190,000 lives, 70% which were civilian lives (Iyer,
Daniel Burgess Econ 221 4/17/13 Social Security When the attacks of September eleventh took place, America was faced with a long-term war against terrorism. The American people have comprised themselves for a war for an indefinite period of time against an unacquainted enemy. America has become united and narrow-mindedness has been placed to the side. Those problems that our political leaders grumbled about before the attacks are no longer on the forefront; however, in due time those problems are the concerns of Social Security. In more way than we commonly realize, the current Social Security system is a damaging system that is not reliable with the customs and traditions of the American Republic.
