September 11, 2001 8:46 A.M. I was just getting up from a late night and seen what had ahppened on television. I was in shock, at this time i wasnt in the military, however this was one of the the things that made me want to join. there are many theories of conspiracy and then there are the beliefs that it was actual terrorism, I know the only thing that really matters is that 2,974 innocent lives were taken. This is unnacceptable no matter whether it was terrorism or a conspiracy, this is the United States of America and it should have never happened. I believe that whoever was responsible for the attacks should be brought to justice and the families of the victims should have closure. Of course we all know that we have been fighting two wars since this has happened in two different countries. i was in iraq when saddam hussein was put to death, i seen the video thirty minutes after he was hung. then we kill osama bin laden a few months ago in Pakistan, but we are fighting the War on Terror in Afghanistan and Iraq, this makes no sense that we are in those countries because of 9/11 and the mastermind behind 9/11 is in Pakistan. who knows, maybe there was a conspiracy, but why would you kill your own people? alot of this makes no sense to me, its like the pot calling the kettle black if it was a conspiracy. we would be just as bad as Saddam Hussien, he killed his own people with gas I dont think of America as this way, but everything is political these days. even in the military, when i first joined i was taught you take care of your men, now everyone is worried how to make their…

Title: The Good and Bad of Airport Security
Should airport security really go overboard with the rules and regulations that go along with traveling? Has anything changed from before the 9/11 terrorist attack? Most people have had the opportunity to travel on an airplane, but even before you get to enjoy your flight to your destination there are steps you have to go through to prepare. There are certain protocols you have to abide by to continue…
Illness On Ground Zero
Cancer, respiratory illness, anxiety, depression, and post traumatic stress disorder are all illnesses that the rescue workers, recovery workers, and volunteers of 9/11 have been left to cope with after that unforgettable day. Unlike most, these individuals are still living with the consequences of the most devastating terrorist attack in United States history. All of us can still remember exactly what we were doing and where we were the moment the attack happened…
September 11th, 2001 was a day when the United States were attacked in New York City and Washington D.C, the Twin Towers were attacked as well as the Pentagon. A reinvestigation of the original story of 9/11 is imperative due to the damage of the Pentagon, Project Achilles (alleged phone calls), and the unusual amount of “put options” days before the attack transpired.
One reason why there should be a reinvestigation of the original story of 9/11 is because of the damage…
The Recovery of Our Nation after 9/11 and How We Retaliated
Our nation was drastically altered after 9/11, and we were forced to take extreme measures in order to retaliate and recapture our national honor. Victims and witnesses of the event were severely traumatized, and all flights were shut down for an extended period of time. The attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon buildings changed the face of America, and we were not able to recover from such a shock for a long time.

September 11, 2001 is one of the most memorable days in our history. This tragic day is still known up to this point in time. Innocent lives were deeply ruined. Many families where left with questions that had no true meaning. I will explain my point of view on this misfortunate time of year.
On the following morning of September 11th, four planes, from the Boston Logan Airport, were hijacked by Muslim. Their goal was to make the U.S economy suffer by destroying…
September 11 2001 the day that will live on in infamy. That day was the hardest for everyone in the United States. To watch lots of helpless people die and fling themselves out of windows to their death stories below, knowing that I couldn’t help in anyway. Realizing that some of the people that are dying aren’t Christians and have never heard the name of Jesus and are going to hell makes me feel guilty for not telling them about God even though I’m not in their state. What would make someone want…
Four passenger airliners were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists so they could be flown into buildings in suicide attacks. Two of those planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, were crashed into the North and South towers, respectively, of the World Trade Center complex in New York City. Within two hours, both towers collapsed with debris and the resulting fires causing partial or complete collapse of all other buildings in the WTC complex, as well as major damage to ten…
The purpose of this paper is to study and look at how terrorism has changed post 9/11, to the current and future times. The United States is currently fighting the war on terror. But who is the enemy to the war? Can terrorism actually be considered an enemy? The answers to these questions are difficult to answer and defend, depending on the circumstances. But the key constant to the question is, there is no internationally agreed definition of terrorism. Common definitions of terrorism…
