Zero Hour Paper
H. History Period 4
The order in which 9/11 happen started as a normal day in America with millions of people getting on planes, but on four planes no one knew terrorist were among the ones to get on the plane. Once the planes took off and headed toward the destination the planes were supposed to be heading a couple of terrorist including pilots killed the American pilots and took the planes over one by one. Shortly after taking over the plane the terrorist pilot would turn the plane toward its target which was one of the four, North or South World Trade Towers, Pentagon, or what we think was the next target the White house but instead a urban field. Then shortly after turning the planes around one by one they start hitting their targets starting with the North Tower at 8:46 am and ending with the urban field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania at 10:03 am.
A big problem that the government experienced in trying to figure out what was going on, was lack of communication and knowledge of where the planes where. At one point the FAA didn’t even know what planes hit the Towers and which ones were still in the air hijacked. Another problem they experienced was not knowing were the planes were once the planes transmitter was off.
President Bush had an emergency meeting right after the attack of the U.S. Bush said that terrorism is no longer just terrorism it is an act of war now, and who hides terrorist will also be treated like one. He also shortly after past the Patriot Act, which gave the President more power of sending troops to war.
I believe that there will be another attack. I believe this because it took us 8 years to catch Bin Laden, who knows if he was planning another attack and in revenge of killing Bin Laden the terrorist carry out his plan on attacking America again.
