The Story Behind
The 9/11 Attack Template by Missing Link
Images from Shutterstock.com VOICES OF 9/11 Al-Qaeda, Islamic terrorist network, was formed in 1989 by a Saudi millionaire, Osama bin Laden (Al-Qaeda- Grolier Multimedia Encyclopedia 1). The Al-Qaeda Islamic terrorist network was associated with suicide bombings and many other terrorist attacks (Al-Qaeda- Grolier Multimedia Encyclopedia). The development of the Al-Qaeda Islamic terrorist network evolved around the Muslim Arabs who had gone to Afghanistan to fight in what was considered to be jihad, holy war against the country’s Soviet people (Al-Qaeda- Grolier Multimedia Encyclopedia). It is believed that the followers of Osama bin Laden were responsible for the attacks on the U.S facilities in Saudi Arabia in 1995 and 1996 (Al-Qaeda- Grolier Multimedia Encyclopedia). Thus, they were responsible for carrying out the bombings of the U.S embassies that occurred in Kenya and Tanzania (Al-Qaeda- Grolier Multimedia Encyclopedia). Moreover, there were accusations that the Al-Qaeda terrorist network supported Palestinian groups (Al-Qaeda- Grolier Multimedia Encyclopedia). The Al-Qaeda terrorist network was considered one of the greatest threats to the security of the United States by the turn of the 21st century (Al-Qaeda- Grolier Multimedia Encyclopedia). In over 100 countries, amidst September 11, 2001 and March 2004, about 3500 people who were allegedly part of Al-Qaeda were killed and captured (Al-Qaeda- Grolier Multimedia Encyclopedia). AL-QAEDA TERRORIST NETWORK THE TRAGEDY OF
9/11 On an ordinary morning on September 11,2001 a tragic event occurred(Jandrowitz and Spaulding 1). Four domestic planes, which they were U.S airlines, were hijacked by the Islamic terrorist network- Al Qaeda (Jandrowitz and Spaulding). The attack occurred when three out of the four airlines crashed in the targeted city of New York and the state of Washington D.C, causing the death of about 3,000 innocent people (Jandrowitz and Spaulding). Two of the planes, United Airlines and American Airlines, heading from Boston to Los Angeles, crashed and destroyed the two World Trade Center towers in New York City (Jandrowitz and Spaulding). The third plane, American Airlines, struck and destroyed part of the Pentagon Building in Washington D.C. (Jandrowitz and Spaulding). Moreover, the fourth plane, scheduled to fly from Newark to San Francisco, tried to target either the U.S Capitol Building or the White House, also in Washington D.C., but crashed in a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania (Jandrowitz and Spaulding). 9/11 ATTACK A total of nineteen men were revealed by investigations to be the hijackers of the airplanes (Grolier Multimedia Encyclopedia 1).
All were said to be part of the Islamist militants who were supposedly linked to the Al Qaeda terrorist group (Grolier Multimedia Encyclopedia). The Al Qaeda terrorist group was controlled by a Saudi millionaire by the name of Osama bin Laden (Grolier Multimedia Encyclopedia). Osama bin Laden had declared jihad, which means holy war, against the United States (Grolier Multimedia Encyclopedia). Many believe that the terrorists chose the day September 11 because the month and day represented the emergency phone number of the United States and Canada (Jandrowitz and Spaulding 1). Likewise, it was also believed that the 9/11 date was selected because it was the day a number of New York emergency and rescue vehicles were out of the state for training (Jandrowitz and Spaulding).
