Where were the terrorists that bombed the trade center in 1993 trained?
Answer . \nThe World Trade Center Represented our success and our great society here in the USA
The Twin Towers (official name World Trade Center) - along with the passengers and crews of the two hijacked jets that were used in the attack - were destroyed on Sept. 11, 2001 by terrorists from the extremist Islamist group al Qaeda, the core element of which was run by Osama bin Laden (before he …was killed by U.S. Special Forces soldiers in May of 2011.) Simultaneously, al Qaeda terrorists also attacked the U.S. Pentagon building with another hijacked jet, killing the passengers and crew along with many military and civilian employees at the Pentagon. The terrorists also hijacked a fourth jet which was headed towards Washington, D.C. before passengers fought back, with the jet crashing in rural Pennsylvania, resulting in the deaths of all passengers and crew. Al Qaeda attacked and destroyed the Twin Towers because they (falsely) believe that the West (i.e., the U.S. and Europe) are the aggressors in a (non-existent) war upon the people and Islamic nations of the Middle East. To them, the Twin Towers, which were home to many U.S.-based and foreign-based financial institutions, as well as numerous other corporations, symbolized the U.S., our economy, and our capitalist system. Likewise, they view the Pentagon as symbolizing the U.S. military. For background information on Al Qaeda and bin Laden see Related Links. (MORE)

Um...in the parking garage at the world trace center in Manhattan New York which is now referred to as ground zero...or something like that
No. There was no bomb in the World Trade Centre attacks on September 11 2001, although the terrorists on board the planes may have *claimed* that they had a bomb to gain control of the plane- it is doubtful that we will ever know. The buildings were brought down by terrorists flying planes into them…, which in turn caused burning jet fuel to weaken the steel in the building enough that it buckled under the weight of the building and tragically collapsed.

They bombed it in 2001, and it was because the iranies are jelous of the Americans and decided to try to rip our country apart and try to bring our hope of survival down, but they only made us stronger knowing that we could concur something like that together.
The only bombing of the World Trade Center in New York City was in1993 in the parking garage underground, but fortunately for us, wasunsuccessful. NOTE: This bombing is different from the 9-11 airliner attacks thatcaused the towers to collapse.
the World Trade Center was bombed in February of 1993 and on September 11 2001 Eight Muslims hijacked two airplanes and flew them into the Twin Towers.
They actually crashed two planes into two separate buildings in the complex. They also crashed a plane in to the Pentagon. They also tried to crash into the white house and were stopped. This was a very famous event which happened on September 11, 2001.
They were striking at symbols of American business, government, military power. It is thought that the plane that went down in Pennsylvania when the passengers resisted the hijackers was intended to strike the White House or Congress On 9/11, terrorists from the group Al Qaeda attacked the World Tra…de Center and the Pentagon in airplanes. They did so to defeat America's financial and defense systems. The World Trade center was a huge factor in our country's monetary systems, and so the terrorists crashed airplanes into it in hopes of driving us into yet another period of depression. Also, the Pentagon was a main target because of its importance in the USA.'s armed forces. It is the main hub of the country's defense and military personel. Destroying it would cause us to become vulnerable against attack or war. Middle eastern countries weren't happy that the republicans were taking their oil so they took down the twin towers. Also the republicans were aware of it. It obvious since they weren't even near New York or the White House and where ever the planes were suppose to land. (MORE)

I'm not sure what the exact names were, but I do know that the terrorists all came a group called Al Qaeda, led by Osama bin Laden.
