September 11, 2001 was unquestionably a tragic day for America and the world. The 9/11 attacks were suicide attacks controlled by Al-Qaeda upon the United States. During the early hours of that day, nineteen Islamist terrorists aligned with Al-Qaeda hijacked four passenger jet airlines. The hijackers intentionally crashed two of the airlines into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Centers in New York City, killing almost everyone in the building along with destroying many facilities. Many other places nearby suffered the same fatal result. The hijackers crashed a third airline into the Pentagon, the headquarters of the U.S. Department of Defense near Washington, DC. The fourth plane crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. There were no survivors from any of the flights. Almost three thousand people died in the attacks, excluding the nineteen Hijackers. The Bush administration immediately responded to the attacks by launching a “war on terror.” 9/11 was simply a reason to declare a war that was already planned. On September 11, 2001, everybody agreed that it was terrorist attack by 19 hijackers controlled by Al Qaeda, but nobody knew our government was involved to plan those attacks.
On September 11, 2001, many horrific events occurred in the history of United States: the first event occurred at 8:45 a.m. when the American Airlines flight 11 crashed into the north tower of World Trade Center, eighteen minutes later at 9:03 a.m. United Airlines flight 175 landed into the south tower of the World Trade Center (WTC) both buildings were burning, at 9:43 a.m. it was reported that American Airlines Flight 77 allegedly crashed into the Pentagon, at 10:05 a.m. south tower of the WTC collapsed into a massive clouds of dust and debris forms, five minutes after the collapse of south tower, at 10:10 a.m. United Airlines Flight 93 also allegedly hit near Shanksville, Pennsylvania and at the same time portion of Pentagon collapsed, and at 10:28 a.m. north tower of the WTC collapsed from the top down, releasing a tremendous clouds of smoke and debris. At 4:10 p.m. building 7 of the World Trade Center was reported on fire, but later during the day at 5:20 p.m. WTC 7 collapsed (“September 11: Chronology of terror”).
Many people believed that buildings World Trade Center 1 and World Trade Center 2 were brought in down by the impact of the airplanes and resulting fires; it was never assumed that this could be the consequence of a bomb attack. However, it did not happen as it was mentioned in the official reports. The bomb explosion caused the damage of the columns of WTC, which brought the building down. Many firefighters who ran up the building to evacuate heard a big sound of explosion on their way; it was not from the top of building. The explosion happened in the basement of WTC. Firefighter Kenneth Rogers said there was an explosion in the building; floor after floor came down and he figured it was a bomb (“Consensus 9/11”). Workers, police officers, and many other people around the building heard a loud sound right before the plane was hit the building. The building would not have collapsed if only the airplane had hit it. The bomb was the main attack to bring the building down floor by floor. According to David Dunbar and Brad Reagan in the book in Debunking 9/11 Myths, “…the demolition of the World Trade Center towers was brought about with ultra-fine-grain “nano-thermite,” or “super-thermite” (55). These dangerous chemicals were used to destroy steal structures of WTC buildings. It was found in the demolition of WTC, but it was not mentioned in the official report. It was not investigated by the FBI officers. The truth is it was an explosion. Another point stated, “Photographs and video footage shot just before Flight 175 hit the South Tower of World Trade Center (WTC 2) seem to show an object underneath the fuselage at the base right wing”(Dunbar and Reagan 8). It was...
