9/11 Attacks

For many people, 9/11 will forever remain a "flashpoint" in people's minds. You remember what you were doing and where you were when you heard the news.

On September 11, 2001, 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group, al-Qaeda, hijacked four passenger jets and conducted coordinated suicide attacks on U.S. targets. Two jets crashed into the Twin Towers of New York's World Trade Center, eventually collapsing the structures. A third jet crashed into the Pentagon, near Washington, DC. The fourth jet crashed in Pennsylvania after a struggle with passengers. Nearly 3,000 people died in the attacks, the largest single-day loss of life in a non-natural disaster in the United States.

This guide will direct you to links, news sources, and library resources about 9/11, terrorism, and homeland security.
