September 11, 2001 was a tragic day for the United States. Tragedy struck when an airplane carrying 10,000 gallons of jet fuel hit the northern tower of the World Trade Center. Then if the day could get any worse at 9:03 the south tower was hit also by a commercial airplane. On this day 2,600 people died at the World Trade Center. This day was said to come as a “shock not a surprise” to the United States government. As early as 1993 an Islamic extremist group tried to destroy the building with a truck bomb. Throughout the 90’s there were more attacks from the Islamic extremist groups from “Black Hawk Down”, to the infamous attempted sinking of the USS Cole. Although, the attacks on 9/11 were much more organized it wasn’t surprising whom they came from. (Kean, Thomas)
The Islamic extremist group known as Al Qaeda was created in the 1980’s after the defeat of the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. Al Qaeda was originally a group of volunteers to help out in a jihad in Afghanistan, it clearly lead to something more. Through the teachings of Osama Bin Laden he spread the word of the greatness of Islam and the need to restore it’s power once more. Bin Laden had it out for the U.S. because of their presence in the holiest site of the Islam faith: Saudi Arabia. Through this ideology Bin Laden created a lethal organization being able to recruit, train, and put plans into action. In his time Bin Laden’s Al Qaeda began to make a close alliance with the Taliban. (Kean, Thomas)
On the morning of 9/11 nineteen hijackers got a through airport security; knowing the ins and outs. As the terrorists boarded the planes they conducted a plan and hijacked both flight 11 and flight 175. In the report done by the United States Government they admit to never giving a shoot down order, or coming to the defense at all. (Kean Thomas) Many things about the events that occurred on 9/11 just don’t add up. There is no possible way that Al Qaeda acted alone; the United States must have helped.
In December 2000 what seems to be ordinary maintenance is requested upon the elevator shafts in both of the towers in the World Trade Center, and fire construction on the same floors that were impacted by the planes less than a year to come. The contractor of this project was none other than Tom Leppord, a personal friend of George W. Bush and Corlos Guiteriez secretary of congress and also will become the leader of the National Institute of Standards and Technology also known as NIST. NIST was in charge of writing the legal document of how and why the building fell, and how to better prepare buildings for the future. In recent past the largest fire to hit a building was on February 23, 1999 it was 38 stories high had eight floors with open fires and it took eighteen hours and the building never fell. On September 11th however something was very different. The South tower collapsed only less than an hour after being hit, and the north only thirty minutes later the north tower collapsed. ( Loose Change) This leads one to wonder how this could be possible. In the NIST report, it has nothing saying exactly how the building collapsed. (Guiteriez, Carlos) Shortly after all of this testing was done the wreckage was shipped quickly over seas, never to be seen from again. (Loose Change)
In other reports a woman living very close to the towers took samples of dust she had collected and sent them to her friend at BYU. Dr. Steven F. Jones found chips from dust recovered that had a combination of aluminum and iron oxide, composing thermite, something to be discovered in a modern day bomb. This finding could be the only explanation of why the building fell as fast as it did. When the building fell it fell at near free fall, with molten metal exceeding 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Fire alone cannot generate enough heat to have metal that hot. Almost immediately before the building also collapsed the lobby area began to fill with smoke. In the report by NIST they also did not do testing for anything explosive. (Loose Change)
Before 9/11 Al Qaeda was unable to even fulfill the smallest plan. When the time had come to figure out whom was behind it all the United States conveniently discovered a tape where Bin Laden confesses to the crime he committed. This tape was then reviewed by Dr. Abdel El M. Husseni he said, “ I have carefully examined the pentagons translation. The translation is very problematic. At the most important places where it is held to prove guilt of Bin Laden it is not identical with the original Arabic.” On September 16, 2001 however Bin Laden has a different story saying he had absolutely nothing to do with the events of 9/11. (Loose Change)
Without the help of the United States Al Qaeda could not have fulfilled this plan on their own. Through the weakening of the core of the building it was able to fall faster, with the help of a bomb it would take a shorter time to fall, and having Al Qaeda caught red handed on a tape no fall could be put on the United States. Unfortunately there is no way to prove this anymore, for all evidence has been shipped over seas or destroyed. Through this plan the United States was able to justify an invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan, killing many people, in more ways than one.
