Docuvideo - 911 Mysteries Full Length High Quality. The September 11
attacks (also referred to as September 11, September 11th, or 9/11 were a
series of four coordinated terrorist attacks launched by the Islamic
terrorist group al-Qaeda upon the United States in New York City and the
Washington, D.C. metropolitan area on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Four
passenger airliners were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists so they could
be flown into buildings in suicide attacks. Two of those planes, American
Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, were crashed into the
North and South towers, respectively, of the World Trade Center complex in
New York City. Within two hours, both towers collapsed with debris and the
resulting fires causing partial or complete collapse of all other
buildings in the WTC complex, as well as major damage to ten other large
surrounding structures. A third plane, American Airlines Flight 77, was
crashed into the Pentagon (the headquarters of the United States
Department of Defense), leading to a partial collapse in its western side.
The fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, was targeted at Washington,
D.C., but crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania after its
passengers tried to overcome the hijackers. In total, almost 3,000 people
died in the attacks, including the 227 civilians and 19 hijackers aboard
the four planes. It also was the deadliest incident for firefighters in
the history of the United States. Suspicion quickly fell on al-Qaeda.
Although the groups leader, Osama bin Laden, initially denied any
involvement, in 2004, he claimed responsibility for the attacks. Al-Qaeda
and bin Laden cited U.S. support of Israel, the presence of U.S. troops in
Saudi Arabia, and sanctions against Iraq as motives for the attacks. The
United States responded to the attacks by launching the War on Terror and
invading Afghanistan to depose the Taliban, which had harbored al-Qaeda.
Many countries strengthened their anti-terrorism legislation and expanded
law enforcement powers. Having evaded capture for years, bin Laden was
located and killed by U.S. forces in May 2011. The destruction of the Twin
Towers and other properties caused serious damage to the economy of Lower
Manhattan and had a significant effect on global markets, closing Wall
Street until September 17 and the civilian airspace in the U.S. and Canada
until September 13. Many closings, evacuations, and cancellations followed
the attack, either out of fear of further attacks or respect for the
tragedy. Cleanup of the World Trade Center site was completed in May 2002,
and the Pentagon was repaired within a year. Numerous memorials have been
constructed, including the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in New
York, the Pentagon Memorial, and the Flight 93 National Memorial in
Pennsylvania. On November 18, 2006, Construction of One World Trade Center
began at the World Trade Center site. As of September 2013, the new towers
concrete construction is largely complete, and will officially open when
the installation of podium glass and interior construction are completed
in late 2013 or early 2014.
