The act of terrorism is something that no person wants to face in their life but the date of September 11, 2001, brought upon darkness to the history of America and terrorism. The 9/11 attacks are considered as one of the most fatal and disastrous terrorist attacks of the world.
A little insight about the day:
On September 11, 2001, four of the American airlines were hijacked and were directed towards terrible fate which resulted in over 3000 casualties and destruction of landmarks and buildings.
• The American Airlines Flight 11 and Unite Airlines Flight 175 were the two of the four which was directed right through the World Trade Centre resulting in the crashing of the aircraft and collapsing of the entire building.
• The third hijacked flight, American Airlines Flight 77 was the one that was crashed into the western side of the Pentagon which is located a little outside of the Washington D.C.
• The last and the most important part of the hijack included the United Airlines Flight 93 which crashed in the rural fields of Pennsylvania after the continuous struggle between the hijackers and the passengers and the crew of the flight.
The deepest and mysterious secrets:
Along with the terrors and the tragic happenings of the attacks, there are some dark secrets associated with the disastrous attacks which were later discovered.
Some of them are:
• No trace of blood on the site of the crash:
The United Airlines Flight 93 was laden with jet fuels and had 44 people on-board including the passengers, crew and also the suicidal hijackers. The plane that apparently crashed on the rural fields in Pennsylvania upon forensic and extended research showed no sign of human DNA or human blood on the site of the crash. Not just that, the researchers on the spot couldn’t trace any contamination in the debris of the flight at the crash site which included any trace of the jet fuel which is yet another question mark to the entire happening.
• Air Defence took a step back:
One of the yet another questionable mystery is the lack of fighting back from the part of the Air Defence. The North American Aerospace Defense Command has in their protocol to send out fighter jets in these types of happenings in order to shoot down the hijacked aircraft. But none of that was administered for the attacks on 9/11 and it is speculated that the NORAD had sent out commands to the air defense squad to stand down during these attacks.
• Question mark on the Pentagon attack:
Many researchers think that the attack on the western side of the Pentagon was a mere distraction because the damaged holes that are evident on the side of the crash are very small in comparison to what it should have been. There has been a further question that if the motto of the terrorists were to cause terror and kill innocent people then why did the crash of the Pentagon happened in the section of the Pentagon that was apparently under construction and was vacant that moment?
