Superior Essays
It was a beautiful day, the sky has never been so blue before. It was a great morning. Until around 8:00 A.M. came around. A news update came on right away. They were saying the 4 pilots on flight 173 and 93, 11, were attacked by terrorists. The terrorists were heading for the twin towers in New York City. They then took over the planes and held everyone hostage. Families would do anything to be able to talk to their loved ones that were in the plane crash. The passengers fought back on one plane, and the plane fell from the sky going straight towards the Pentagon but ended up in the field behind it. As for the other planes, flight 11 was from Boston departing to New York City to hit the Twin Towers. Or make a scare. They went after the towers …show more content…
A question to ask is why does the Government lie to Americans when a Terrorist attack happens? Why not just tell the truth? One problem with the official 9/11/2001 report is how Saudi Arabians couldn’t leave the United States after the attack. The United States Government wouldn’t let them leave because they had absolutely no trust in Saudi Arabians. Another problem with the 9/11 official report could be the United States military was not informed right away, in fact they didn’t know about the attack till after it happened. The military could have stopped the attack even after the hijacked plane took off to flight. A few more problems with the official report are 3. “The omission of the fact that President Bush and other members of his administration repeatedly spoke of the 9/11 attacks as “opportunities.” “My hope is that this will provide an opportunity for us to rally the world against terrorism.” To start a new beginning. Some people think that is okay, and others will say no that’s diffidently not okay! We have families to care about and watch out for. The United States military wanted to kill the terrorist on the spot but President Bush declined the thought of that happening. People do some very deep thinking, that type of thinking is called conspiracy thinking. And someone might have told the truth about what really happened on

    The government gave the president right to do all means necessary to repel any attacks (Appleby [Page 886]). There have been questions about if this incident really did happen and potentially was made up in order to have another reason to going to Vietnam.

    Four planes were involved, they took off from three different airports along the East Coast (9/11 Attacks). The planes they chose were chosen strategically as well. They were transcontinental flights, so they had 20,000+ gallons of jet fuel on board. This would help cause a larger explosion when they struck the towers. The first plane to have impact was Flight 11, it took off from Boston Logan International Airport, it hit the North Tower (Inside 9/11).…

    This tragic is 9/11, which was when the World Trade Center towers were attacked by two airplanes. Shortly after both crashes, the towers collapsed, causing horrifying terror within our people. This event can be said to be a cause of the war because the U.S. government wanted to eliminate a group referred to as Al-Qaeda, which is said to be responsible for hijacking the planes and crashing them into the towers. After this happened, everyone in the country looked at terrorism in a very serious manner because they saw what happened and were afraid of anything like that happening…

    Edgar Hoover are “accomplices after the fact,” and implies that not only is there a government conspiracy surrounding the assassination of Kennedy, but the strings of that conspiracy are likely being pulled by some international shadow government. The film implies, through the fabricated character of X, that the reason why no one has tried to harm or assassinate Garrison is because the case has made him too high-profile to remove without raising questions, “You 've become a significant threat to the national security structure. They would have killed you already but you got a lot of light on you. Instead they 're trying to destroy your credibility.” Yet these same people (according to Garrison) are willing to assassinate a president of the United States, a presidential candidate, and an extremely public civil rights leader. The argument doesn’t hold water, or as Senator Long would put it, “that dog don’t…

They want them to feel helpless that the American government is not doing anything to protect them from the life threatening attacks from terrorists and third world countries (Levin 6). Unfortunately, before the attack on September 11th, 2001 most people do not think about terrorism as often as they do now (Levin 1). When Americans are asked what they think of when they hear the word terrorism; they usually think of mass shootings, planes crashing, and suicide bombings (Levin 1). ISIS is the biggest threat to Americans since Al-Qaeda in 1988 (Hearts and Minds and ISIS: The Terrorists Win When We Attack Each Other).…

    The main purpose of the camera was to get the public to do what the government wanted. Without the support of the public, America would not have got far in the war. Some might say that lying through these pictures was a necessary evil. They had to lie to the people of America to insure that they had their support to win the war. They may have taken away the public's way of seeing, by misleading them, but the government thought that this was important to the war effort.…
