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.
September 11, 2001 (9/11) was the first time American’s had experienced an act of terrorism at such an intense level. Fourteen minutes before 9 a.m. a commercial passenger airplane crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center (WTC). The second plane crashed into the South Tower at about 9:03 a.m. At about 9:43 a.m. an aircraft crashed into the Pentagon and shortly after 10 a.m. both WTC towers collapsed. The fourth plane was brought down in rural Pennsylvania. Americans everywhere were angry, fearful, and heartrending.
Media and Memory: Audience Research into 9/11 Introduction The following report is based on the events of September 11th 2001. On that morning, 19 terrorists from the Islamist militant group al-Qaeda hijacked four passenger planes and in a series of suicide attacks, proceeded to crash the jets into their preplanned targets. The first plane struck at 8:46am when American Airlines Flight 11 hit Tower 1 of the World Trade Center, the second attack occurred 17 minutes later when a second jet United Airlines Flight 175 crashed into Tower 2, within 2 hours the twin towers of the World Trade Center had collapsed, and thirdly American Airlines Flight 77 at 09:37am collided into the Pentagon. This proved to be the last attack as the passengers
Over 3,000 people were killed during the attacks (History). Since 9/11, I have asked myself these questions every time I step on to a plane; is this plane safe? Are we going to get hijacked? Then seconds later I tell myself that I’m being crazy and continue on my way. That moment of second guessing will constantly be lingering in my head.
RUNNING HEAD: TERRORISM 1 Terrorism, Emergency Powers, and the role of the U.S. Supreme Court RUNNING HEAD: TERRORISM 2 Thesis Since September 11, 2001 our nation went through an act or terror which terrorist took over two planes and directed them into the World Trade Center which stood 1,776 feet tall. When the planes hit the World Trade Center into two different areas that caused the World Trade Center to collapse and many lives were lost. On top of that the Pentagon was also attack with a plane which again many American’s. This was a terrorist act that no one expected. Terrorism, emergency powers and the role of the U.S. Supreme Court needs to come up with a plan in order to prevent this again.

(fbi.gov, 2008) The World Trade Center’s parking garage located in Manhattan, NYC has exploded with a manmade bomb. The attack turned out to be something of a deadly dress rehearsal for 9/11…Al Qaeda would later return… (fbi.gov, 2008). The U.S. was violated by a terrorist attack from those comparable to Al-Qaeda. According to History.com a few radical Islamic fundamentalists were arrested, convicted and sentenced to life by a federal jury for their role in the bombing. One may say this incident alone foretells the following acts to follow.

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.
