Group Responsible

The main suspect is Osama Bin Laden, the head of a network of terrorists.

Synopsis


On the morning of September 11th terrorists hijacked four commercial jet planes and attempted to fly them into several U.S. targets. They used American Airlines Flight 77 like a missile and crashed it into the Pentagon at 9:38 AM. The Pentagon caught fire and part of the building collapsed. In this tragic event 189 civilians and military personel lost their lives. This attack was done in concert with the attack on the World Trade Center.

America's Response

The people of America have banded together like few other times in American history. People have responded with donations of blood, effort and money. The terrorists hoped to break the will of America but they have only inflamed the will of Americans to insure that freedom, liberty, and the American way of life continue.

The President of the United States has called for all civilized nations to band together and fight terrorism. The military of the United States has been mobilized for war. This operation has been code named Enduring Freedom. The government has declared Osama Bin Laden to be the main suspect and is currently seeking him in the country of Afganistan. Unfortunately, the Taliban, or ruling party of the country is not cooperating with the U.S. Government.
