A third plane hit the Pentagon and the fourth plane crashed in a field. Over 3,000 people were killed during the attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C., including more than 400 police officers and firefighters. The day this happened the United States was turned upside down. This terrorist attack not only affected the ones that was there, but the families, friends and people watching from home. The news played videos and live footage of what was happening. My school was playing the news and I remember seeing people jumping from the burning buildings, hearing them scream and seeing people rushing in to save the lives of the people trapped inside. The news also played phone calls that had been made to 911 from the victims that were trapped inside the burning buildings. Praying for them to send…

    Just recently, Trump signed a new executive order banning immigrants from six Muslim majority countries. In the new order, Iraq is not included because they agreed to share more information with the United States. In the new order, there is explicit language that allows green card holders re-entry into the United States. The new order does not indefinitely ban Syrian refugees “and called for prioritizing the admission of refugees who are religion minorities in their home countries” (CNN), prioritizing Christian over Muslim refugees. In an attempt to gain support for the new travel ban, it states that the FBI has reported “that approximately 300 … refugees are currently the subjects of counter-terrorism investigations” (CNN). The order lasts for 90 days, starting March 16. As of now, multiple states have joined together to challenge the order in court and one judge has already struck the ban down regarding a Syrian family trying to find refuge in Wisconsin. The order has not yet taken effect but already seems to be on a path towards…

    Since the successful attacks by planned by Osama Bin Laden, and carried out by Al Qaeda terrorists, the United States of America has implemented new strategies to thwart efforts by terrorist to achieve another successful attack on US soil. Along with the new Global War on Terrorism, came new laws, different executive orders, and the implementation of the Department of Homeland Security to combat terrorism and to strengthen the nation's national security. According to James Carafano and Jessica Zuckerman, “There is little doubt that the United States is safer than it was on September 10, 2001—at least 40 terror plots against the U.S. have been foiled since 9/11—but the war on terrorism is not yet won” (Carafano and Zuckerman 2011, par.2). After many successes, at least 40 foiled plots said by Carafano and Zuckerman, the United States has monitored and compiled a list of suspected terrorist organizations both foreign and domestic. However, the US has recently began to slow down their efforts in national security interest. Under the leadership of the Obama Administration, there have been many defense cuts, a refusal to secure US borders, and a foreign policy that has caused more instability in the Middle East than ever before. This has given rise to more hatred for the hegemonic United States government by Islamic extremists, and has left the United States susceptible to three major types of terrorist attacks that are likely to occur on American soil.…
