Planning Of The September 11 Attacks
On September 11, 2001, 19 hijackers took control of four airplanes and were targeting The World Trade Center in New York, The Pentagon near Washington, D.C., and the United States Capitol Building. Two planes hit the World Trade Center. One hit the Pentagon. However, one plane never arrived at its target, the Capitol Building. About 3,000 people died, making it the most deadly terrorist attack on US soil in history. It was carefully planned by al-Qaeda, who sent 19 terrorists to take over Boeing 757 and Boeing 767 aircraft, operated by American Airlines and United Airlines.

In Connecticut, it meant kids who werent planning to get a Ph.D. from Yale.”
