On September 11th, 2001 at 8:46 AM, five hijackers flew American Airlines Flight 11 into the northern facade of World Trade Center's North Tower. 20 minutes later, United Airlines flight 175 flew into the southern facade of the Southern Tower. 30 minutes later, American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into The Pentagon. 1 hour later, a fourth flight, United Airlines Flight 93, crashed near rural Shanksville, Pittsburgh. Within 2 Hours, 2,996 people were dead, including the 19 hijackers that brought down the 4 planes. Because of these events, 9/11 is the largest single loss of American civil life in a deliberate act (Atkins, 2011). When touching the subject of 9/11, many Americans regard it as a tragedy and a unforgettable day; Some will even go as far to say that the attacks on 9/11 were a declaration of war by the alleged attackers, members and co-conspirators of the terrorist organization Al Qaeda. While a great deal of Americans and people around the world believe that 9/11 was an attack on the american government by Al-Qaeda, there are an exceptional amount of people that believe that the attacks were coordinated and executed by people within the U.S Government. In a 2008 poll managed by the Program on International Policy Attitudes at the University of Maryland, " 46 percent of those surveyed said al Qaeda was responsible, 15 percent said the U.S. government, 7 percent said Israel and 7 percent said some other perpetrator" (Allen, 2008). While the majority of people surveyed (representing 17 different countries) agreed that Al-Qaeda was responsible for the attacks on 9/11, 15% of the 16,063 surveyed believed that the attacks were perpetrated by people within our own government.
