The War on Terror
Transcript of The War on Terror
TSA Tightens Airport Security After 9/11
Osama Bin Laden Killed
The Transportation of Security Administration (TSA) was formed in November of 2001, following the attacks of 9/11. Nearly 50,000 TSA security officers screen approximately 2 million passengers each day at 775 security checkpoints in more than 450 airports nationwide. We now have to be more cautious as to what we take on planes.
On May 2, 2011, Osama Bin Laden is found dead by Navy SEALs, caused by a bullet lodged in his brain. This has had a positive effect on the war on terror because Al Qaeda soon began to fall apart without Bin Laden to lead.

'Global War on Terror' is Over
Obama Declares War on Terror Over
On September 11, 2001, a group of Muslim extremists called Al Qaeda hijacked planes and crashed into the twin towers, causing national catastrophe and grief. The event lead to 2,996 deaths. There is no definite cause for the event, although some believe it was an attack on the symbol of power that America was. America retaliated by tightening airport security and declaring a war on the terrorist group. To this day, Americans remember the victims of this devastating event every year on 9/11.
On May 23, 2013, President Barack Obama declared the war on terror to be over. "Where appropriate, we will bring terrorists to justice in our courts and military justice system. And we will insist that judicial review be available for every detainee" said Obama. Because of this declaration, America will no longer put money into fighting terrorist or extremist groups.

War on terror time line
3 ways young people are impacted by the war on terror.
One of the ways the younger people are impacted by the war on terror is that we are being constantly watched by the government through our text messages and our phone calls. There isn't a phone call that goes through, that the government isn't listening in on. We have to be more cautious as to what we say because it could be interpreted the wrong way and things may go south.
Because of terrorist acts on the united states, our economy has gone down. Due to this dramatic decrease in our economy people have been laid off from their jobs, and companies have lost business.
Another way that younger people have been effected by the war on terror is by the way kids treat other kids due to their race. If kids are indian they are sometimes made fun of and or singled out.
