United 93

On September 11, 2001, four young Arabians prepared themselves for hijacking United Flight 93. The same day, America witnessed three attacks, as one plane destroyed the Pentagon and two others, destroyed both towers of the World Trade Center. The FAA and Military are unprepared for this and battle to deal with the situation. A delay of United 93 allows the passengers to learn of the attacks, which leads them to believe that they too are part of a hijacking and must stop the terrorists, in order to saves thousands of lives.

Question: I know this has nothing to do with movie's plot, but I'm going to ask it anyway. How did the hijackers know that destroying the twin towers would affect the US economy?

Answer: The World Trade Center, otherwise known as the "twin towers, " housed many corporate headquarters, media outlets, and financial institutions, both domestic and international. A comprehensive list of the World Trade Center tenants can be found at: http://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/2001/trade.center/tenants1.html. The hijackers knew that the attack, if successful, would strike at the heart of national and international commerce, thus affecting the US economy.
