This is a 19 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on The United States & Terrorism - Events Prior to 9-11. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The events of the World Trade Center Attack on September 11, 2001 were so devastating, that some have little knowledge of the terrorist attacks that the United States had already experienced both within and outside the United States. These events are significant in that they forced the United States to learn how to fight a new and different enemy who was capable to inflict great harm against the United States. These attacks also changed the way Americans see and experience the world as it now exists.
The Clinton administration was never willing to take such a step. It even shrank from the possibility of assassinating him if others might be killed in the process. The attacks had been remote and widely separated. It was easy to accept them as unwelcome but inevitable costs associated with superpower status. Bin Laden remained a serious nuisance, but not a top priority for an administration that was nearing its end.
Bush expected to be a president primarily concerned with domestic policy. He wanted to reform education. He had talked during his campaign about an overhaul of the social security system. He wanted to follow Reagan’s example as a tax cutter. The Bush presidency changed irrevocably on September 11, 2001, when the United States suffered the most devastating foreign attack ever against its mainland.
For almost 10 years, he remained in hiding but a team of Navy SEALs found the al-Qaida leader in an upstairs bedroom with a pistol and an assault rifle nearby and shot him in the head and chest, killing him instantly.
