Quiet shot of Boston International Airport and Logan. Then there was the sound of air traffic controllers, who released American Airlines Flight 11 for takeoff. Vote from 09/11/2001.
The first episode rightly claims that before the turning point on September 11, 1979:
The first turning point that put the world on this path was when the Soviets invaded Afghanistan. After a long chilly opening that includes attacks on both World Trade Center towers, with gruesome footage of American Flight 11 and United Flight 175 crashing into their respective towers, we return to this Soviet invasion.
Speaking to a combination of experts and people involved in the fighting at the time, from mujahideen leader Gulbuddin Hekmatyar to Milton Bearden, a CIA agent in the country, Knapenberger described how the United States helped rebels fighting against the Soviets. But shortly after he left the Soviets in 1989, a power vacuum emerged, tribal rule returned, leaving room for Osama bin Laden to join the Arab push to fight the country’s next civil war. It also leaves room for one of the warring religious groups, the Taliban, to consolidate power.
There is also a discussion of the first bomb attack on the World Trade Center in 1993:
It is led by aid workers about what happened to al-Qaeda, and then the first attack carried out by bin Laden and al-Qaeda: the bombing of the U.S. embassy in Kenya. And Tanzania after the bombing of the USS Cole. However, the plot failed at the last second, making them look like rehearsals.
While we’re not looking for other cinematics like Nat Geo, we’re a little embarrassed about how Turning Point handles attacks. While the narrator and the interviewees do say it’s one of the most important days in U.S. history. The music and the tone of the opening segment make it look more like a real crime series. About Investigation Discovery than some excellent behaviour on September 11.
It’s too early to treat September 11 as if it were just another historic event.
There is a need to talk about the war on terror. That dominated our foreign policy until at least the mid-2010s. But you feel the turning point is half the deal if you go through today with a few details. But ignore what makes it scary to those who see it or people like us who just got rich from three countries.
And so far, at least, no information about how we funded the mujahideen in the 1980s and how it affected us. While bin Laden and the Taliban expanded their respective spheres of influence is nothing new. Many news reports, analyses, and documentaries, even in the years immediately following September 11, provide the same information. Putting everything in a collective context makes sense. But we wonder if this holds for people whose heads have been under a boulder for the past two decades.
We return to the Pentagon, where American 11 will fall. A woman was talking about getting up for a presentation, to give a presentation, and suddenly it got dark. During the 9/11 recording from New York, there were some sloppy mistakes, such as providing some footage and audio to Fox 4 News. If they go with Fox Station in New York, it’s Fox 5.
Suppose you’re interested in 9/11 documentaries or documentaries about the war on terrorism. In that case, there’s nothing better than The Turning Point: 9/11 and The War on Terror. Which go deep and achieve very little.
