Throughout this horrific ordeal former president George W. Bush remain calmed, trying to draft out a plan of whom to blame for the attack. The Bush administration has a lot of dark secrets and connection to the Saudi’s before and after September 11, 2001. The United States government was warned prior the attack directly from Osama Bin Laden, in which the warnings were ignored. Thousands of innocent individuals lost their lives and the United States was also left traumatized in result to this vicious attack. Former president George W.

Cole Wasson Mrs. Beattie Honors English 10 7 April 2014 9/11 Conspiracy Research Paper September 11, 2001 marked one of the most tragic events in United States history. As a way to assure the safety and wellbeing of U.S. citizens shortly after being attacked by al-Qaeda, President Bush stated, “Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts may shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve”. Although President Bush was seen a source of security during a time of need, many citizens felt that his words were not genuine and part of a dramatic story the government wanted its people to believe. Despite the side taken, both perspectives of the argument can agree that the U.S. was attacked by a series of coordinated suicide attacks by al-Qaeda.
So either we support their words and actions or we are vilified as unpatriotic.” Bush had a dictator attitude when it came to his reasoning for war. He felt he did not have to justify or answer to anyone’s questions for his reasons. Bush let Americans believe some of the conspiracy theories in order to shift the blame away from his administration. Instead of finding the most qualified skilled individual to lead the investigation on the 9/11 attacks, Bush appointed an individual who has been under fire with the government before. Henry Kissinger, a man whose been investigated for his secretive activities and tried for war crimes, was now called to investigate the biggest crime against America.
From the 1980's to present, the United States has dealt with the wrath of terrorism. From hijacked aircraft, to bombing of sovereign US buildings, terrorists have tried to get their message across to their "enemies" by wreaking havoc. One must look at why the United States is perceived as the "bad guy" and what motives the terrorists have for destroying it, and its allies. In October and April of 1983, Americans were greeted by what would be a start of numerous terrorist acts against the United States. In Beirut, a car bomb exploded in front of the U.S. embassy killing seventeen Americans.

A second screw-up by the Bush Administration that must be noted in the deliberate ignorance of the Geneva Conventions which regarded the treatment of prisoners of war. The Bush Administration, in fact, is said to have condoned the use of torture. The article we were asked to read, concluded exactly what I have in my additional research. "The Bush administraion's rhetoric concerning Iraw became increasingly punitive and communitarian in tone after 9/11."
America has had 21 terrorist attacks, from 2000 to 2009 consisting mostly of al-Qaeda and suicide bombers (infoplease.com). Osama Ben Laden, leading al-Qaeda’s attacks is fed up with the way America treats the world. Blaming America for global warming and determined to stop them by sending suicide bombers and hijacking planes. After the 9/11 attack America changed the way they looked at security, putting into effect; Airport Security Federalization Act of 2001: To deter and punish terrorist acts in the United States and around the world, to enhance law enforcement investigatory tools (The Library of Congress). Most recently, America has decided to put full body scanners in airports to detect items hidden under clothing and are considering using the scanner as the main source of screening customers.
The establishment of the American power into the Middle East is the result of a clear event: the corruption of the government and the conspiracy of 9/11. “Tonight, we are a country awakened to danger and called to defend freedom…” (George W. Bush) From the identities of the terrorists, to the total disappear of two of the four planes, to the stall of the most powerful defense of the entire world, to the causes of the fall of the three towers, this official version presents a lot of dark points that nobody has been able to clarify.

Helms later became CIA director and gained a measure of notoriety for his 'Watergate "lying to Congress" conviction and a touch of immortality in Thomas Powers's aptly named biography, The Man Who Kept the Secrets. Helms founded the MK-ULTRA program and justified its notably unethical aspects with the rationale, “We are not Boy Scouts.” At the time, the spook scientists suspected that LSD had the potential to reprogram the human personality. In retrospect, they were probably right-Timothy Leary spoke in similar terms, though he saw unlimited potential for self-improvement in this “reprogramming.
He flies over to Herod Sayle’s house, and after some very daring explorations, he finally finds out Herod Sayle’s dark secret, and tries to set out to stop him without getting killed. After reading this book, I was really amazed at how good the author described Alex Rider and how realistic he made him sound. I was baffled at how brave Alex was to accept the dangerous mission (p. 55) and become a spy. If I were Alex, I would have rather gone to the institution instead. I wouldn’t have been valiant enough to pursue the mission than an adult has died from elucidating.
