September 11, 2001, is a date in which will be remembered in the minds of Americans forever. Four commercial airlines were hijacked. The hijackers intentionally crashed two of the airliners World Trade Center in New York City, killing everyone on board and many others working in the building, and also killing an estimated 343 firefighters. The hijackers also crashed a third airliner into the Pentagon. The fourth plane crashed into a field near Shanksville in rural Somerset County, Pennsylvania, after some of its passengers and flight crew were said to attempt to retake control of the plane.
This was not the first time they had tried to attack the world trade centre. In 1993 February 26th a truck bomb exploded in a parking garage below the world trade centre. Six people were killed and more than 1000 people where injured. A Pakistani was eventually captured and convicted for the bombing as were several Egyptians. The FBI believe that these terrorists plan was too explode one of the towers and make it lean and fall onto the other tower to destroy them both to try and kill and total of 250,000 civilian deaths.
Many countries were scared after the 9/11 attack and started to stricken their security. The attacks resulted in the death of 2,996 people, including the 19 hijackers and 2,977 victims. The victims included 246 on the four planes from which there were no survivors, 2606 in New York City in the towers, and 125 at the Pentagon. Nearly all of the victims were civilians, and 55 military personnel were among those killed at the Pentagon. More than 90% of the workers and visitors who died in the towers had been at or above the point where the plane was hit.
9/11 affected the health, financial markets and economy of the citizens of the United States. 9/11 took place on September 11, 2001. Three airplanes were hijacked by terrorist and used as weapons. Two of the planes hit the World Trade Center in New York City and 2,752 people died (September 11 Attacks). The other plane crashed into the Pentagon and killed 189 people.
The buildings went up in flames as people attempted to flee from the ash, steel, glass, and bodies falling from above. Both buildings, which took a total of eight years to construct, collapsed in less than 90 minutes. That same morning, at 9:37, a third plane crashed into the Pentagon, just outside of Washington. Then, at 10:03, the fourth and final plane crashed into a field in southern Pennsylvania.

In this section of the report, the authors detail the rate at which destructive fire kills, injures, and causes property loss to Americans. The report states that fire claims the lives of 12,000 people every year in the U.S., making it the second highest cause of accidental death. That isn’t the only human toll, because there are also 300,000 people who are injured by fire on an annual basis. The authors expound on the injuries by detailing the painful experiences of patients who must endure numerous plastic and reconstructive surgeries. The price of destructive fire is estimated at over $11 billion a year in the U.S. Loss of businesses leads to loss of jobs, which is a price that is beyond calculation.
Bush was informed and in turn sat there for several minutes. Emergency technicians said there could be as many as 20,000 people working that day. Is this not considered a mass murder? Why did the government fly 143 Saudi’s out of this country, 24 of them being a member of the Bin Laden family (Moore, 2004). The government knew that Al Qaeda was hiding Bin Laden, yet it still took those two months to get troops into Afghanistan and still they only sent 14,000.
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.
The HIPAA privacy standards make up the HIPAA privacy law. Any violation of the HIPAA privacy rules can leave a healthcare institution open to legal consequences from the wronged individual and possibly the federal government. In this case our elder Mr. Stevens had made it clear to his provider that he did not want his family to be made aware that he was being treated for cancer. This fact was documented in Mr. Stevens’ electronic medical record, but that should not have made any difference in this scenario because his condition would never have been revealed if the clinic staff had followed proper HIPAA
Over 4400 Soldiers died in Iraq and 2000 killed in Afghanistan during a ten year war to end terrorism and the Al Qaeda network. As a result of the 9/11 attacks many Americans lost their lives that day. Islamic terrorists got into the country and hijacked four planes and crashed 3 out of 4 into their targets; both towers of The World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Fortunately they didn’t get the White House thanks to 33 brave passengers who took down the plane and the terrorists who hijacked the plane. Many Americans have lost their lives that day and none of them will be
