September 11, 2001 attacks

From dKosopedia

The attacks of September 11, 2001 were the deadliest acts of terrorism ever committed in the United States, killing nearly 3000 people. Four airplanes were hijacked by 19 terrorists. One was crashed into the Pentagon, one crashed in a field in Pennsylvania, and two were crashed into the World Trade Center towers, leading to their collapse. Later that afternoon a third World Trade Center tower collapsed spontaneously.

The United States government was quick to finger Osama Bin Laden, and other members of his al-Qaida terrorist group, though he denied responsibility. Later USA invaded Afghanistan to remove the ruling Taliban, after asccusing them of harboring Osama Bin Laden.
