1. Why did Al-Qaeda choose the targets that it attacked on September 11, 2001?
Al Qaeda considers the optimal means of creating an Islamic caliphate to be reducing the United States’ ability
to intervene in the Islamic world.As a result, the group’s selection of
targets and attack modalities was designed to inflict a large amount
of damage on the economic foundations of U.S. military, political,
and commercial power. The main aim of the Al Qaeda's attack on United States of America was to bring the economy of the country to stand still.
