How many boys died on September 11?

If by "boys" you mean children, then three boys died that day. Two 11 year old boys were on the flight that crashed into the Pentagon and a 3 year old boy was on the plane that crashed into the south tower of the WTC. If you just mean males in general, then there were too many to count. About 2, 976 people were killed, and it was probably fairly evenly split between men and women.

See below link:

What were the reasons for the attack on September 11?

Answer 1 There are a lot of unanswered questions in the official 9/11 report from the government. The actual details may never be certain. A brief answer is that: . The United States has garnered a lot of hostility because of its support for the establishment and continuation of Israel, a Jewish state. This support has angered many Islamic nations in that geographic region, leading to many radical Islamic fundamentalists calling on the United States to withdraw from the region altogether and to stop supporting Israel. Obviously, the strategic interests for energy are too important for the United States to do this, and so the people -- Islamic fundamentalists believing they have a religious duty to fight the United States' infidels -- call on followers of radical Islamic faith to make war on US citizens and the US government. . The hijackers were mostly citizens of Saudi Arabia and they were thought to be members of Al Queda, led by Osama Bin Laden. A group of terrorists took control of two commercial airliners and purposely crashed them into the "twin towers" of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. Another group of terrorists took control of another commercial airliner, reportedly headed for the White House in Washington, D.C., which crashed in a field in Pennsylvania after the terrorists were overtaken by a group of passengers. Another group of terrorists took control of yet another airliner and purposely crashed it into the Pentagon. . It is generally believed that the Koran's teachings engender in some Muslim fundamentalists a hate for westerners which caused them to commit these hostile, mass-murdering terrorist acts. The terrorists believed that giving their lives in order to kill many of their western 'infidel enemies' in the United States was a "holy" act given to them by their god. They felt it was what they were 'destined to do' for their god, and that's why they did it. . Muslim fanatics attacked the US because of their belief that predominantly Christian nations such as the US have deprived the Islamic world of the leading role, and the power and prestige that it rightfully deserves. Christianity and Islam have been in conflict since the Crusades (beginning in the year 1000) and US support for the nation of Israel since 1948 has greatly inflamed Muslim resentment toward the US. To the September 11th terrorists, that attack was merely the latest battle in a long running war between faiths. . Also, be aware that there are many people who simply hate the United States because they have a distorted view of our country. Instead of seeing the United States as the "melting pot" country that it is; that it is a "free" country; that it allows its people to believe, speak, and worship as they wish. They prefer to believe that because Americans do not believe, speak, and worship as they do, that everyone here is full of sin, going against "their" God in so many ways (religion, technology, etc.); not living our lives in their simple and prudent ways; not using only what is necessary, but rather using more than our share. Answer 2: (Conspiracy Theories) There are doubts that Al-Qaeda (that was established and trained by the US and financed by the Saudis) is responsible of the September 11. A French writer analyzed the attack and its scenario and concluded that it was a plotting by the US intelligence to justify attacking the Islamic countries claiming attacking on terrorism. The most prominent conspiracy theory is that the collapse of the Twin Towers and 7 World Trade Center were the result of a controlled demolition rather than structural failure due to impact and fire. Another prominent belief is that the Pentagon was hit by a missile launched by elements from inside the U.S. government or that a commercial airliner was allowed to do so via an effective stand-down of the American military. Possible motives claimed by conspiracy theorists for such actions include justifying the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq as well as geostrategic interests in the Mideast, such as pipeline plans launched in the early 1990s by Unocal and other oil companies. Other conspiracy theories revolve around authorities having advance knowledge of the attacks and deliberately ignoring or assisting the attackers. Refer to related links below.

How many disabled people died in the September 11Th attacks?

{i dont think any disabled people died} Whoever provided this answer is just a complete moron. I am unsure of the numbers since you can find absolutely nothing online. I am very positive that most of the people with disabilities perished in the attacks. People in wheelchairs were told to go to the 131st floor since this is how far the ladders would reach. They could not run down the stairs with everyone else, obviously, and they could not take the elevators. Some of the people running down the stairs would stop and grab someone out of their chairs leaving behind everyone else. It's very odd that it is so impossible to find information about this.

How many planes were used in the September 11 attacks?

There was just under 3000 deaths from the attack and more than 6000 injuries. There was 19 terrorist involved.:)

In the September 11 attacks how many terrorists were there on each plane?

The day began with the 19 hijackers getting through a security checkpoint system that they had evidently analyzed and knew how to defeat. Their success rate in penetrating the system was 19 for 19.They took over the four flights, taking advantage of air crews and cockpits that were not prepared for the contingency of a suicide hijacking. Mohamed Atta, from Egypt, was the ringleader of the 19 hijackers and one of the pilots. Atta died in the attack along with the other hijackers, but his luggage, which did not make the connection from his Portland flight onto Flight 11, contained papers that revealed the identity of all 19 hijackers, and other important clues about their plans, motives, and backgrounds.

What led the September 11 attacks?

The Twin Towers (official name World Trade Center) - along with the passengers and crews of the two hijacked jets that were used in the attack - were destroyed on Sept. 11, 2001 by terrorists from the extremist Islamist group al Qaeda, the core element of which was run by Osama bin Laden (before he was killed by U.S. Special Forces soldiers in May of 2011.) Simultaneously, al Qaeda terrorists also attacked the U.S. Pentagon building with another hijacked jet, killing the passengers and crew along with many military and civilian employees at the Pentagon. The terrorists also hijacked a fourth jet which was headed towards Washington, D.C. before passengers fought back, with the jet crashing in rural Pennsylvania, resulting in the deaths of all passengers and crew. Al Qaeda attacked and destroyed the Twin Towers because they (falsely) believe that the West (i.e., the U.S. and Europe) are the aggressors in a (non-existent) war upon the people and Islamic nations of the Middle East. To them, the Twin Towers, which were home to many U.S.-based and foreign-based financial institutions, as well as numerous other corporations, symbolized the U.S., our economy, and our capitalist system. Likewise, they view the Pentagon as symbolizing the U.S. military.
