The 9.11 event
The September 11 attacks were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks launched by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda upon the United States in New York City and the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Four passenger airliners were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists so they could be flown into buildings in suicide attacks. Two of those planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, were crashed into the North and South towers, respectively, of the World Trade Center complex in New York City. Within two hours, both towers collapsed with debris and the resulting fires causing partial or complete collapse of all other buildings in the WTC complex, as well as significant damage to ten other large surrounding structures. A third plane, American Airlines Flight 77, was crashed into the Pentagon (the headquarters of the United States Department of Defense), leading to a partial collapse in its western side. The fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, was targeted at Washington, D.C.,but crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after its passengers tried to overcome the hijackers.
九一一袭击事件是2001年9月11日发生在美国本土的一系列自杀式恐怖袭击事件， 根据官方说法，由基地组织所发动；当天早晨，19名基地组织恐怖分子劫持了四架民 航客机。劫持者故意使其中两架飞机分别冲撞纽约世界贸易中心双塔，造成飞机上的 所有人和在建筑物中的许多人死亡。两座建筑均在两小时内倒塌，并导致临近的其他 建筑被摧毁或损坏。 另外，劫机者亦迫使第三架飞机撞向位于弗吉尼亚 州阿灵顿县的五角大楼。此一袭击地点临近华盛顿特区。
在劫机者控制 第四架飞机飞向华 盛顿特区后，部份 乘客和机组人员试 图夺回飞机控制权。 最终第四架飞机于 宾夕法尼亚州索美 塞特县的乡村尚克 斯维尔附近坠毁。 四架飞机上均无人 生还。

--------a trick? Bin Laden, who orchestrated the attacks, initially denied but later admitted involvement. Al Jazeera broadcast a statement by bin Laden on September 16, 2001, stating, "I stress that I have not carried out this act, which appears to have been carried out by individuals with their own motivation."
袭击事件发生大约1年多后， 一封据称是奥萨马· 拉登的亲 本· 笔信被寄往全球各大媒体，信 中解释了发动恐怖袭击的理由。 这些理由包括了美国在中东地 区的大量军事干预，西方通俗 文化的泛滥（主要是对性、酒 精的开放观念，这些观念对于 拉登、基地组织、塔利班政权 或其他一些伊斯兰基本教义派 而言根本无法接受）等。这封 信件在很大程度上被轻视，而 美国政府依然坚持，发动袭击 的主要原因是恐怖份子的反美 情绪爆发。

after The 9.11 event’s
Government policies toward terrorism As a result of the attacks, many governments across the world passed legislation to combat terrorism. In Germany, where several of the 9/11 terrorists had resided and taken advantage of that country's liberal asylum policies, two major anti-terrorism packages were enacted. The first removed legal loopholes that permitted terrorists to live and raise money in Germany. The second addressed the effectiveness and communication of intelligence and law enforcement.Canada passed the Canadian Anti-Terrorism Act, that nation's first anti-terrorism law.The United Kingdom passed the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001 and the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005.New Zealand enacted the Terrorism Suppression Act 2002.
In the United States, the Department of Homeland Security was created to coordinate domestic anti-terrorism efforts. The USA Patriot Act gave the federal government greater powers, including the authority to detain foreign terror suspects for a week without charge, to monitor telephone communications, e-mail, and Internet use by terror suspects, and to prosecute suspected terrorists without time restrictions. The Federal Aviation Administration ordered that airplane cockpits be reinforced to prevent terrorists gaining control of planes, and assigned sky marshals to flights. Further, the Aviation and Transportation Security Act made the federal government, rather than airports, responsible for airport security. The law created a federal security force to inspect passengers and luggage, causing long delays and concern over passenger privacy.
