Many sites on the internet cite this coincidence as ether a prof to a conspiracy by the gov. or a message that the terrorists wanted to pass to the American People. Here are just some exmples from around the net:
Q: I just got wondering, is it a coincidence that the terrorist attacks on the WTC towers was on 9/11? The emergency number to dial in the US is 911 after all. I always thought the number was chosen after the attacks, but I just read it has existed for a few decades already.
So, did the terrorists pick 9/11 on purpose because 911 is the US emergency phone number, or is this just a coincidence?
The accepted answer:
Haven't you heard about the " the artificial accident of Pentagon " ???
more often than not that it was a " fabricated " accident rather than a pure coincidence or even a proceed of a smart planning of so called " the terrorist and Bin Laden" ....they probably have cooperated with each other( US government with bin laden ) to make that tragedy ....Bin Laden has never presented Islam in any way ...
actually you should rephrase that Q to this way: have ""US government" chosen that day deliberately?
just google it and you will find thousand sites talking about this ...
And some of the other answers:
A1: I always thought that. Their idea of a joke or something.
A2: I don't believe in "coincidences."
Does the emergency number 911 have anything to do with the 9-11 terrorist attacks?
And one of the answers said:
The emergency phone number 911 has been around for a very long time. I'm fairly sure the attacks occurred on 9/11 just to add insult to injury.
I was wondering of the coincidence or not of September 11 as called 9/11 & the emegency phone number for America being 911.
Was this just a coincidence?
Was this day chosen to teach America the fear of a real emergency from the "alledged" terrorist point of view?
Was this day chosen by the "alledged" TPTB to instill a date that could be easily remembered due to it being so close to an already well known number 911 phone number?
Was this day chosen to be an ironical slap in the face of the general populace?
Just always seemed to much of a coincidence of 9/11 & 911 being chosen.
I say this because many other countries use different dating systems for example 9/11/2001 is dated 11/9/2001.
Also the 911 emergency phone number is differnet for other countries where numbers like 000 or 999 are used instead.
Anyone ever thought this as too much of an ironical coincidence?
Many of the answers in that thread also think the same:
A1: The date was absolutely chosen on purpose. Regardless of who you think did the deed, there was months if not years of planning that went into the 911attack. With all that must have gone into putting all that together, the numeric symbol is to apparent and powerful to be by chance.
A2: Options 2,3 and 4 seem more likely than 1. But the number may be significant for other reasons. Numerology is extremely important to the Illuminati according to most of the people who study them. (How does one study a secret organization? Is it even organized enough to study?) Many of the sites google listed seem kooky, but something might make sense.
