Today marks 18 years of the alleged terrorist attacks that took place in the United States of America. The tallest buildings of their time, the Twin Towers, World Trade Center, had collapsed and a small part of the Pentagon was damaged as a result of the “attacks” that took place on September 11, 2001.
The attacks killed nearly 3,000 people and injured more than 6,000 others. The 9/11 attacks were the deadliest on the US soil since the Pearl Harbour bombing in 1941 that launched the US into World War II.
With this incident, the US found a justification to invade Muslim countries and it immediately launched an invasion with the NATO forces in Afghanistan in a bid to hunt the alleged mastermind of the attacks, the then al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden. Hundreds and thousands of people have so far been killed and a lot more injured in Afghanistan and Iraq, while infrastructure of these countries has also been destroyed since then.
There are a number of conspiracy theories regarding this incident but the most prominent of them is that the Twin Towers collapsed as a result of controlled demolitions. One theory in this regard states that the American authorities had advance knowledge of the attacks and they assisted the assailants. Another theory claims that the attack was orchestrated by Israel’s intelligence agency Mossad.
Researchers have found following irrefutable facts about 9/11:
The American government has failed to trace, arrest and prosecute anybody responsible for the crime, which was termed a crime against humanity.
Though, some people were detained in Guantánamo Bay in 9/11 attacks but their alleged confessions were made behind closed doors.
The government arrested Khalid Sheikh Mohamed in 2003, who allegedly confessed to financially assisting the terrorists of Sept 11 attacks. He also allegedly confessed to planning an attack on a bank in Washington which did not exist until after he was already in Guantanamo. He has never been brought to a trial.
The US could not provide evidence establishing any links to the 9/11 incident with Afghanistan, while relaying the United Nations about their decision to attack the Asian country.
The authorities failed to charge Osama bin Laden. In fact, the FBI had in June 2006 admitted that it could not find any concrete link between the incident and Osama bin Laden.
America could not present a convincing proof whether the 19 people named as hijackers even boarded the aircraft that they were accused of hijacking.
