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.
The New Threat To World Peace Terrorism. Terrorism and terrorists are defined as people who cause death and destruction through means of bombs and hostage taking who bassically cause terror for religious reasons or another cause they see just. After the end of the cold war people claimed that there was no threat to world peace .They were wrong however on September 11th 2001 all their views changed. On September 11th 2001 two planes were hijacked and crashed into the Twin Towers aka (the World Trade Center) ,people also over looked that supposedly one plane was crashed in to the Pentagon and one was heading to the White House but was brought down by the passengers in midflight. After the planes crashed the World Trade Center Imploded killing a few thousand people.
The Al Qaeda’s final attempted target was the White House; which is the residence of our nation’s president and most beloved historical site. Lack of high monitored airport security is another main cause of the attack on September 11th. Security mainly consisted of x-ray machines, metal detectors, and potential checks from airport security guards.

If for instance, the state attacked does not possess the willpower, resources or support from other states, then what happens to the state? CONCLUSION Terrorism is one of the most complex cases in the international world today. It is carried out by a minority group trying to make their beliefs known to the government with the main aim of getting rid of the government to start a new regime; so it can be argued that it is a means to an end, it is using tactics (laid out plans) to ensure that the strategy (which implies taking over a government and starting a new regime). It is not all states that possess the willpower and ability to get back up after they have been attacked by terrorist.
In Mark Lane’s Plausible Denial (1991) we are told that because of this whole fiasco, Kennedy fired three of the CIA’s top men (Allen Dulles – Director of the CIA, Charles Cabell – Deputy Director and brother of the Mayor of Dallas, and, Richard Bissell – Deputy Director for Plans, the dirty tricks department of the CIA) and he planned to “splinter the CIA in a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds (Lane 93&98).” Kennedy would not support the invasion of Cuba again, and the CIA knew this, but it didn’t stop them thinking about it, or training ex-patriots for another invasion, though one was never attempted, at least not that Kennedy (or the public) knew of. Vietnam was also a major issue that the CIA was involved in and unfortunately for them, so was Kennedy. Once Vietnam started getting more serious (by the summer of 1963), Kennedy reevaluated the United State’s involvement in Vietnam (Marrs 306). The CIA wanted more and more troops to fight, they really wanted to win this war on communism, but Kennedy disagreed. He felt that the Bay of Pigs had taught him a number of things – one is not to trust generals or the CIA, and the second is that if the American people did not want to use Amer... ... middle of paper ... ...how little or how much, we may never know.
The movie Air Force One begins with the President of the United States of America boarding the aircraft, Air Force One with his wife, daughter, and staff. Just after liftoff from Moscow, the plane is attacked and taken over by terrorists, who were smuggled onboard by a member of the president’s staff. As soon as this happened, the secret service put the president into a small pod, which was designed to get the president off of the plane in case of an emergency. As they forced him into the pod, his only concern was for his family. He yelled out “Where’s my family?
On September 11, 2001 millions of Americans were getting ready for another ordinary day of work, but little did they know the world as they knew it would change. Four airplanes were hijacked by terrorists and crashed into the World Trade Center and The Pentagon. The fourth plane was crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania after passengers retaliated against the hijackers. The terrorist attacks on America that day were performed by an Islamic terrorist group name al-Queda, led by Osama bin Laden. In total nearly 3,000 people were killed in the attacks including the civilians and hijackers aboard the planes.
James Bamford wrote the book “A Pretext for War”, in 2004. The topic of this book is that it explains the systematic weakness that led to the ignorance or misinterpreted evidence of the pending terrorist attack on 9/11. The authors thesis is clearly stated on the title of the book “9/11, Iraq, and The Abuse of America’s Intelligence Agencies.” After reading this book, Bamford does explain everything he said in his thesis. I will talk about how the author organized his book, the style of his book, and about the author himself. Bamford organizes his book, “A Pretext for War”, in three different parts: Destruction, Detection, and Deception.
The plan called for the men to hijack the airplanes, once they gained control of the planes, the hijackers would crash the plane into the key targets they had selected. The first plane, American Airlines flight 11, struck the north tower of the World Trade Center at 8:44 am September 11, 2001. (Wachtel 10)When many people first heard the news of the crash, they thought it was just an accident. Little did they realize that the hijackers intentionally crashed the plane. The north tower was one of two Twin Towers of the World Trade Center overlooked lower Manhattan.
Terrorist from Al-Qaeda, the Islamist militant group, hijacked four passenger jets, and intentionally piloted one into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, and two of those jets into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. The hijackers intended to pilot the fourth jet into a target in Washington, D.C., but crashed into a field, in Pennsylvania, after its passengers took back control of the jet. Nearly 3,000 people died in the 9/11 attacks. George Bush swiftly responded by launching the War on Terror and invading Iraq and Afghanistan to overthrow the Taliban, which was harboring Al-Qaeda. In 2004, Al-Qaeda ‘s leader Osama bin Laden, who initially denied his involvement, claimed responsibili... ... middle of paper ... ...ers in the United States.
