On September 11, 2001, America was attacked by a group of terrorists sent by Osama BIn Laden. These terrorists hijacked Boeing 757's and 767's and flew them into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a field. United Airlines flight 93, a 757, crashed into a field in Somerset County, Pennsylvania. This flight was believed to be headed for the White House or the Capital Building. Al Qaeda decided to attack America in response to American intervention in the middle east.

What Happened, Happened- HISTORY.com

One side of the media states that extremists from many Arab countries came to the United States to commit a suicide bombing. A few of the extremists took flying lessons and learned how to control the gigantic passenger jets. Once they learned, the plan was underway. 4 planes, 2 American Airlines 767's and 2 United Airlines 757's. All loaded with large amounts of fuel to go cross country they were prime targets for the terrorists. Armed with box cutters and knives, the 19 terrorists were successful in hijacking the 4 passenger jets. 2 planes, both 767's, hit the World Trade Center, one hit the Pentagon, and the other landed in a field, presumably on its way to the White House or the Capital Building.

No Planes Were Used- nodisinfo.com

The "planes" that were used in 9-11 never took off. The videos of planes hitting the towers were just media techniques to appear like there were planes. The planes collided with the buildings and penetrated them with very little resistance. The planes kept their shape and went through the buildings, which is scientifically impossible. This is why some believe that bombs were used, not planes. There is video evidence of the explosion happening before the plane collided with the building, debunking the fact that planes were used in the attacks of 9-11.

Bias of the Media

There is an obvious bias in the media that what was seen through videos of 9-11, there were planes used in the attacks on America. Most Americans will not believe in the somewhat moronic conspiracies. To say that no planes were used is completely ignorant because the planes and everyone aboard the plane had to go somewhere. They did not just disappear. There were no plane parts found because something that is traveling at 500mph and hits a concrete and steel building is very likely to disintegrate from the sheer force of the impact, not to mention the several hundred degree burning flames of the fire produced by the crash.

Marxist Criticism

Some people may say that marxist criticism may play a roll in the attack on America. The terrorists who live in poor countries and have virtually nothing could've been jealous of the greedy America. Many countries do not like America at all, and they want America to burn, out of jealous rage. The difference between the "haves" and "have nots" is very apparent in this situation and may justify the reason for the Islamic Terrorists attacking the United States.

Cultural Criticism

In modern America, life-changing events are happening what seems like once every month. With modern technology as well, Americans can now be notified almost immediately after such event takes place. But, there is always the select few groups of people who want to deny the events and say that they never happened. With this constant struggle of hard evidence, it is now American nature to raise the question "Did that really happen?" This comes into play with the countless conspiracy theories of what really happened on September 11, 2001. Even though it has been scientifically proven that jet fuel can in fact melt steel, people still do not want to believe such words.
