Yousif Azizi@3860418.05.2014Final Assignment, Final DraftConspiracy TheorySeptember 11th 2001 was never an easy day; it holds a deep impact in almost every American's heart. On this day three of United States passenger airplanes were hijacked and hit three planned targets, the towers of the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington DC. The attack on Twin Towers in New York City was not only a bloody terrorist move that shocked the US government and citizens, but also changed many things around the world. Theorists have declared that these attacks were planned by the government, while others believed that the attacks were engineered by government's elite individuals, but the US government itself, rejects all these theories by blaming the terrorists. However, since the day of the incident, people within the US and abroad believed in some of these conspiracy theories which suggest that the knowledge of this attack was held prior to the actual event.According to a survey by Time Magazine (2006) more than 100 million American people responded that they believed the attacks on 9/11 were engineered by some organizations linked to the government itself. In addition, before the 9/11 attacks there were movies that showed signs about the bombings on Twin Towers.

Moreover, many other movies and even cartoons such as "The Simpsons" showed similarities to predictions of the attacks on 9/11, long before it happens. Although, many people believe in these skeptics that blame the US government and some other parties for planning the attacks on the Twin Towers, there is still lack of evidence that confirm these theories.Theorists and other political activists have blamed not only the government, but also some other parties such as Illuminates, elite individuals in the US government and agencies such as CIA for attacking the Twin Towers on September 11th 2001. "Terrorists could not have carried out such an operation with four hijacked planes without the support of the secret service." said Horst Ehmke, blaming the CIA for the attacks on 9/11. In addition, throughout the years after the attacks, much evidence has...
