9/11

    WI: 9/11 fails. Sort of...

    Let's say that 9/11 fails. It's been done a lot, which is completely understandable. But what if 9/11 failed only partially? By that I mean the following: The two flights headed for the Twin Towers don't carry out their desired mission. One of the groups of hijackers just misses their flight...

    Alternate 9/11 where home-grown domestic terrorists do it

    I couldn't think of any other title for the thread. But I just wondered sometimes is that what if Al-Qaeda never did the attacks on 9/11 and instead home-grown domestic terrorists crash two planes into the Twin Towers, a plane into the Pentagon and fail to try to crash a plane into either the...
  3. It Didn't Happen Here: Part 1, The 2000s.

    2001: On a chill January day in Washington D.C, George Walker Bush stepped up to a podium and recited those words that 41 other men had before him. “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability...
  4. No 9/11

    August 17, 1985: Osama bin Laden, a young Afghan soldier, is killed by Soviet forces during the Soviet-Afghan War. December 12, 2000: The U.S. Supreme Court confirms that Texas Governor George W. Bush had defeated Vice-President Al Gore in the 2000 Presidential Election. September 11, 2001...
  5. What if 9/11 had a lower death toll?

    During the hijacking, UA flight 175 passed within 300 feet of Delta Air Lines Flight 2315, but what if they had collided? This would have meant that only one plane would have hit the WTC and perhaps the collapse could be averted or occur late enough for evacuation to be nearly complete. How...
  6. AHC/WI: WW2-like War on Terror; effects on American domestic front.

    What would it take for the United States to enter this WW2-like total war after 9/11? I'll propose a few possibilities: -- Less disastrous Vietnam, less successful Gulf War. This military history no doubt convinced Bush's defense crew that keeping the public distracted from daily military...
  7. 9/11/1999

    What if 9/11 happened two years earlier than it did OTL? How would Clinton respond? Would a McCain Presidency be garanteed? Would McCain say, "I served, therefore I'm fit to handle this crisis"?

  9. President Trump - 2001

    What if Donald Trump in 1999 decided to run for the Republican nomination instead of the Reform Party? And of course secured the nomination and won the election because, you know, well, he is Trump. What's next?
  10. WI President Al Gore publicly connected the 9/11 attacks to Saudi Arabia?

    So there are many controversial seeming connections between members of the Saudi government and the 9/11 attackers. What if Al Gore, having won the presidency, made this information public and put the blame of the attacks on the Taliban in Afghanistan and on elements of the Saudi Arabian...
  11. WI John McCain wins 2000 election

    What if John McCain, not George W Bush, won the Republican nomination in 2000? How could this be done? Probably he wins South Carolina, maybe he successfully pushes back against the smear campaign run against him, but looking at coverage from the time that wasn't seen as a big factor in his...
