THE IMPACT THAT SEPTEMBER 11, 2001 CAUSED THE UNITED STATES I will be discussing the changes in America since the attacks of September, 11, 2001. The threats to civil liberties, neglect of social problems and the politics that have change since September, 11, 2001. There have been many turning points in American History, but none have had the same effect as September 11, 2001. Many Americans relate to the day to be the country’s loss of innocence. As the result of September 11, 2001 many Americans lives were affected emotionally, economically, politically, and judicial.
What happen to the judicial side of United States. The American justice system was under attack, with people being held without access to lawyers, sometimes having secret detention hearings closed to the public, and sometimes without being formally charged with a crime. The suspects were prosecuted for providing material support for potential future acts of terrorism, than actually taking place of an attack. The “members of congress who try to question attorney General John Ashcroft about the policies was either ignored or accused of aiding the enemy” (The New York Times April 20, 2003 pwk 8). They are secret warrants that they can search people’s homes that can today be obtained with minimal judicial oversight. Benjamin Franklin one’s said that those who would trade liberty for security will find neither. How Americans emotionally took a impact. After we went to war with Iraq there was less tolerance among Americans for dissenting view concerning our foreign policy. You will hear about some Americans all ways talking or calling other Americans “Anti-American” or “unpatriotic”, because they express their feelings about the administrations action especially the actions that we t attack Iraq. For an example a Yale University student Katherine Lo hung an American flag upside down as a anti-war symbol of American distress. Several “young men broke into her suit and wrote a message on her bulletin board saying Iraq, and Muslims should be killed”. (Beach 2003). Let everybody remember what Thomas Jefferson said that it is the duty of their government, because nothing can keep it right except their own vigilant and distrustful supervision ( berry 2003). The hate crime against immigrants in the United states went up especially against people who was either from middle east or who looked like they was from the middle east. According to the FBI in year 2003 hate crimes targeted people, intuitions, and businesses identified with Islamic faith increased from 28 in the year 2000 to 481 in the year of 2001 it was a huge jump of 1,600 percent. That is a huge jump with one year, and Muslims was the least targeted religious group (New Haven Register November 26, 2003 pe 4). What this war did to us economically. The personal safety of Americans depended on adequate responses to these and other domestic challenges accrued like more than a trillion dollar loss in the American economy and federal defects of $300 billion or more a year after 9/11. We have been made aware of incompetence and routine mistakes of our...
