9/11: Boston Found Focus for Its Anger

Bostonians were angry on September 11, 2001. After the attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, Boston found a focus for its anger. The city was able to channel its pain and anger into action with vigils, donations and eventually revenge against Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. However, after 9/11 there was never any evidence that errors by airport officials contributed to the hijackers’ success; but this didn’t stop people from speculating about what could have been done differently at Logan Airport to prevent it all from happening.

There were many people who believed that there was a conspiracy behind these events, and the fact that it took so long to find Bin Laden only fueled those theories.

Theories about the events of September 11th are still being debated today.

It was hard for people to accept that 19 well-trained hijackers could successfully carry out an attack on US soil without help from someone inside the country.
