There are more secrets to the United States government than meets the eye. Recently there was one of the most tragic moments in United States history, the attack on the World Trade Centers Twin Towers. September 11th is a day many people will never forget; unfortunately, it is also a day which has left many questions unanswered.Almost everyone can recall exactly what they were doing and where they were when they first heard the news of the attacks on the Twin Towers on September 11th 2001.
