The devastating inhumane action orchestrated by one of the most renowned terrorist group in the world or Al-Qaeda, changes United States of America forever. Although some conspiracy theorists, such as David Icke, speculates as if it was a deliberate action with the awareness of high ranking officials of U.S, but the debate is still on going.
