September 11, 2001 will be remembered as a day that made history, not just in the U.S. but around the world. However it is true that the direct consequences of the attack are more visible in the countries directly involved; so among others the United States. These consequences are different in nature, we will expose in this section, grouped into three distinct group: the political, economic and social consequences.

A-Political consequences
In 2001, the U.S. president was Georges W. Bush, a member of the Republican Party, elected a few months before (January 20, 2001). Georges W. Bush did two mandates; he has been the American president for the seven years following the 9/11. Therefore most of the consequences we are going to talk about in this part are majority due to him.

The most obvious political consequence of the 9/11 is probably the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Indeed, 9/11 is a milestone in Washington's foreign policy: its action against "rogue states" and terrorist groups has been given the status of official doctrine. This new crusade, under the slogan of the generic "fight against terrorism," legitimized interference in countries regarded as potential accomplices of international terrorism.

This is how Afghanistan has been attacked by the United States one month after the collapse of the twin towers. According to Bush, an act of terrorism required a military response. The intervention against states suspected of being supporters of terrorist networks or manufacturers of weapons of mass destruction is also part of the war against terrorism. The events of September 11 have therefore also encouraged America to attack Iraq.

[...] As stated below, the political consequences of the 9/11 had an impact on the U.S. economy, because the U.S. spent a lot of money for the Department of Homeland Security, and for both wars. But it is not the one economic consequence. Indeed, since the 9/11, the U.S. dollar is in a continued deprecation (compared to the Euro or the pounds). Moreover, people have less confidence in this currency than they used to before the event. A lot of experts agree to say that since the 9/11: - The power of the oil and banking ?cartels? increased, ?keeping US in slavery to fossil fuels and perpetual financial debt.? - ?Meltdown of the US economy due to deregulation and government negligence led to crimes within the financial sector.?

[...] Indeed, this kind of event cannot remain indifferent, and leaves traces most of the time. Evidenced by these results hallucinating conducted among New Yorkers: 30% of them suffered from post- traumatic syndromes in the six months following the event. This syndrome is characterized in the form of nightmares, sleep disorder, depression and alienation / estrangement. But these changes in the way of life do not stop at New York City only. Indeed, a survey conducted in the 50 U.S. states, during January-March 2012 with 22,097 adults subjected to the question: "Given the tragic events of September 11, would you say you do after each addition, less or no differently than you did before?
