The attacks of September 11th, 2001, are a topic that has been debated for years. There are many theories as to who exactly was behind the attacks—but there is no definitive answer.
The 9/11 attacks were carried out by a group of 19 hijackers who were affiliated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda. The hijackers flew commercial airplanes into the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., killing nearly 3,000 people. U.S. intelligence agencies believe that al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was behind the attacks, and he was eventually killed by U.S. forces in 2011.
Some conspiracy theorists have claimed that the U.S. government was actually behind the 9/11 attacks, but there is no evidence to support this claim. The 9/11 attacks had a profound impact on the United States, both domestically and internationally—and it’s still having an impact today! In fact, we’re still working hard to rebuild from them today: we’re still working very hard on improving our homeland security measures so that another attack like this never happens again!
