It is always good to forget bad memories but some memories haunt not only individuals but the whole human race for centuries on end. The 9/11 attacks was one such event which hardly has a parallel in history.

    The Dark Day

    You might say that the history of the world has been full of wars and bloodshed and there have been events where many lives were lost compared to 9/11, but what makes this incident stand out is the manner of attack and the failure of a system which was, until then, considered literally unbreakable. I do not need to reiterate what happened on the fateful day of September 11, 2001 as we all know that the twin towers were destroyed by terrorists on that day.

    The Mysterious Side

    Thousands upon thousands of articles, news stories, editorials and columns have been written about the event but I want to focus on the mysterious side of this event. Most of the people were not satisfied with the explanation offered by the investigating agencies and several organizations and individuals who took on the task of scrutinizing the reports and explanations.

    The main points which are not found digestible by many people are as follows

    • If a flight goes off course, the US Defense Services are suppose to spring promptly into action. This did not occur on that day, at least not in a timely manner.

    • No-one including the manufacturers of the Boeing Aircraft were ready to explain some mysterious sightings on the underside of one of the aircrafts which seemed like a modification to the normal aircraft design

    • Some people allege that several key officials within the US security administration deliberately showed a slow response to create a fake flag situation for political reasons.

    There are several other observations apart from these and they have not been put forth by everyday citizens but several experts and experienced people from various fields such as aeronautics, engineers and so forth have given their views about it. If you want to read some of the more reasons for doubting the official theory, visit 911truth.org, a website dedicated to this quest.

    Whatever the truth is behind these suspicions and allegations, the truth remains that such a horrendous act of terrorism is a cause for grave concern. It goes to prove that a typical terrorist does not fit into the traditional image of an uneducated, rough-tough guy who has lot of brawn but hardly any brains. These hi-tech terrorists are really a challenge to the society and the security agencies protecting society by requiring new techniques of countering their effect.

    In the end it must be said that an open mind must be kept without having any bias for or against any particular agency in particular or the US government as a whole. It simply defies logic to think that people who are already in the top brass of administration would do such a lunatic act of destroying their own country and citizens. Certainly they would be aware that if truth if found out some day, then they would not have any place to go on this planet. Time only will tell the truth, but in the meantime we can only hope and pray that such an incident was the last of its kind and will not happen again in the future.
