introductionTen years after September 11, 2001, the consequences of the terrorist attacks can still be felt. This becomes clear not only in the current handling of the terrorist threat in the USA, for example with regard to the continuation of military tribunals instead of civil courts for terrorist suspects, the adherence to unlimited custody in Guantanamo Bay, the ongoing debates about global security policy and the continuation of the war in Afghanistan . The participation of individual countries in the "war on terror" and the need for domestic political measures to prevent terrorism also testify to the consequences of September 11th in Europe. The possibility of using "manned projectiles" as weapons, as the American author Don DeLillo excellently described the aircraft on September 11, 2001,  has been stirring people again since the Fukushima catastrophe at the latest. When, for example, Federal Environment Minister Norbert Röttgen presented his test catalog for the resilience of 17 German nuclear power plants in March 2011, plane crashes were right at the top of the list.
The dominant images of that day - the burning twin towers, people falling from the roofs of the World Trade Center (WTC), a Manhattan lying in ruins - have been permanently burned into the collective consciousness. Today they are an integral part of every counter-terrorism scenario. The attacks have not only changed the international sense of security, but also the national consciousness of some Western societies.
