On September 11, 2001, two airplanes were flown into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center and the pentagon, killing nearly 3000 people.

The attacks were a series of coordinated suicide attacks by a terrorist group named al-Qaeda. In the morning, 19 al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four passenger airplanes. They then intentionally crashed two of the planes into the Twin Towers, in New York City, killing everyone on board, plus many others working in the buildings. The buildings collapsed within hours, damaging and destroying nearby buildings. A third airplane was crashed into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, just outside Washington, D.C. The fourth and final plane crashed into a field while some of its passengers attempted to retake control. It had been directed toward Washington, D.C. by the hijackers. There were no survivors from any of the flights.

The United States responded to the attacks by launching the War on Terror, invading Afghanistan to remove the Taliban and the al-Qaeda terrorists. Many other countries strengthened their anti-terrorism legislation and increased law enforcement powers. Some stock exchanges stayed closed following the attack, and posted enormous losses, especially in the airline and insurance industries. The destruction of billions of dollars' worth of offices caused severe damage to the economy of New York.

The damage to the Pentagon was cleared and repaired within a year, and the Pentagon Memorial was built adjacent to the building. 4 more towers were built on the previously Twin Towers' plot.

The Documentary

The makers of the documentary claim that the report of the official U.S. commission into the tragedy of September 11, 2001 is false. One of the films authors, Giulietto Chiesa, who's also an Italian member of the European Parliament, says some of the facts concerning the tragedy remain very suspicious and that a lot of questions are still unanswered. "The people who organised 9/11 are people who knew the geopolitical and energy situation in the world very well. They knew exactly how the attack will change the future of the world," Chiesa said.

The film claims the reason for the collapse of the two towers of the World Trade Center in New York was not the planes crashing into them but a controlled detonation of explosives planted inside the buildings. Referring to witness corroborations, they pose the question of how two of the worlds largest buildings collapsed on their own footprint, and without significantly affecting nearby buildings.

Chiesa says he was shocked by the absence of U.S. air defense on the day of the attack, which allowed the hijacked planes reach the World Trade Centre. He also finds it strange that, only three days after September 11, U.S. officials were able to name all 19 terrorist involved. The film presents evidence that CIA specialists not only new about the planned terrorist attack but assisted them in gaining U.S. visas. The documentary also raises questions about whether the aircraft involved in the Pentagon attack was a Boeing-757.

Adding to these questions is the absence of any footage from the many cameras installed around the U.S. Defense HQ, any wreckage from the aircraft, or passenger bodies. The documentary also raises doubts, not only about Osama bin Laden's involvement in the attack, but also the existence of the Al-Quaeda terrorist organisation. However, they also claimed responsibility for the 7/7 bombings, and today it is believed that they do exist - Osama Bin Laden was tracked down and killed by the American Army.
