roughly 10:05 A.M., and the south at 10:28 A.M. This was witnessed by millions of people on live television. The terrorist attack was seen as an act of war, and left the United States wondering who had done it.
The primary question for everyone in the United States was, who was responsible for the attacks on September 11th, 2001? The belief that the United States government took was that it was the Al-Qaeda group. Al-Qaeda is a worldwide terrorist group that is dedicated to Jihad, which means struggle or holy war (“Al-Qaeda”). The Al-Qaeda terrorist groups leader is Osama bin Laden, who also created the group.

Pakistan has played a significant role, both during the Cold War and as a non-NATO member in the US-led “War on Terror” against al Qaeda and the Taliban. After 9/11 terrorism became a serious problem in international relations. It was the first time in recent history that the US had been confronted with such a huge disaster on its own soil.

On September 11, 2001, (9/11) the United States was attacked in a series of coordinated terrorist attacks launched by the Islamist terrorist group Al-Qaeda. On that Tuesday morning, 19 Al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four passenger jets, intending to fly them in suicide attacks into targeted buildings. The September 11 attacks resulted in nearly 3000 deaths that day.

Discrimination exists with sexual orientation, religious beliefs, and even political affiliation and can easily be compared to the discrimination practiced during the 1800’s. One major difference today is the absence of slavery. An example of tension was demonstrated after the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001.

Indefinite detention of an individual occurs frequently in wartime under the laws of war. This has been applied notably by the United States after the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Diversification is a company strategy where a company’s goal is to increase profitability through increased sales volume from new products and new markets. It allows a company to venture out into new lines of business that are different from present operations. Companies choose to diversify for a host of different reasons.

The dating industry formed in the 1600s when the first services to help singles found spouses arose. At the time, being unmarried past the age of 21 was shameful causing some to turn towards matrimonial agencies to help them find a mate.
