September 11, 2001.
The beginning of a normal day in New York City. A normal day starting. Around 7:59 a.m. the four airplanes were hijacked and took flight at 7:59 a.
m. The first depart was a Boeing 767 for American Airlines 11 left Boston’s Logan International Airport for Los Angeles with 92 passengers on board. At 8:14 a.m.
, United Airlines Flight 175 a Boeing 767 with 65 passengers on board, leaves Logan to Los Angeles. American Airlines Flight 77 leaves Washington Dulles International Airports at 8:20 a.m. The plane, a Boeing 757 with 64 passengers on board, is heading to Los Angeles. Finally, at 8:42 a.m.
a Boeing 757 for United Airlines Flight 93 depart with 44 passengers going toward San Francisco. The first crash was at 8:46 a.m. When Flight 11 slams into the north tower of New York’s World Trade Center. According to the 9/11 Commission Report, two flight attendants American Airlines to report the plane was hijacked.
At around 9:03 a.m. the second crash came when Flight 175 crashed into the south tower of the World Trade Center. At 9: 38 a.m. flight 77 crashes into the Pentagon.
At around 10:00 a.m., the south tower falls after burning for 56 minutes. The world was shocked. 9/11 change the world by putting countries into war.
It was bad times for the United States, more than 9000 people were wounded or killed. Less than a month after twin tower crash happened, U.S.
soldiers invaded Afghanistan in attempt to break up the Al Qaeda. There have been ongoing wars since the last 15 years the United States have been sending troops into the middle east area. After all of the fighting with other countries. United States formed an U.
S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. According to the DHS´s Yearbook of Immigration Statistics U.S. around roughly 200,000 people were deported from 1999 to 2001.
After 9/11 in 2002 the number slightly decreased in 2002. In 2009 from 2010 United States had a high of deportations reaching a number of 400,000 people. After 9/11 U.S.
airports safety changed a lot. With each airport with their own metal detectors, officers, and radars. In 2001 before 9/11 airports let you take box cutters on a plane, but after 9/11 you couldn’t bring anything and everything was checked.Since 9/11 this is what has happened: 1. America has become less dependent on foreign fuel. 2.
Bin Laden is gone. Navy Seals shot Bin Laden in 2013. There are more reasons. A year after 9/11 us invaded afghanistan to find the leader of al-Qaeda. A year after that Bush embarked upon a preventive war.
In Lower Manhattan and at the Pentagon, all rebuilt with appropriate memorials. The world had changed drasticly since the Stratfor was founded and the events of 9/11 that followed. As I mark the company’s 20th anniversary, I’ll be informing you about the key developments and issues that shaped the world during that fatalistic period in time.
However, the greatest threat during that time was the global spread of Jihadist terrorism. Terrorism most certainly did not begin on Sept. 11, 2001. However, it was a wakeup call, a ‘call to arms’ per say, that promoted a dramatic shift, both in the reach of jihadism has and how the world responded. This narrative continues daily, new information being found at rapid speeds.
Stratford Vice President of Intelligence Fred Burton had recently spoke on the Stratfor Talks podcast to share his notions on the five ways the attacks of 9/11 had changed the world. #1. Global Conscience of the World was Permanently Changed: The attacks on 9/11 had created a permanent change in global consciousness and shifted the U.S’s attitude toward Foreign Policies.
#2. The Rise U.S’s New Surveillance Programs: The events of 9/11 had started the War on Terrorism; and the nature of the war itself provoked the rise of ¨big brother¨ surveillance programs, including the advancements of closed-circuit cameras and biometric recognition software. #3. The Fervent Use of Drones: The use of drones, both as surveillance platforms and weapons of war, expanded exponentially as military forces were sent to the war in Afghanistan and Iraq.
#4. Evolution of Triage and Trauma Recovery: Years of battlefield experience has greatly increased the chance of triage and trauma in War.
