I posted this question: What was the impact of 9/11

Basically what I'm wanting is, in what ways was the United Stated impacted, or what changed, because of the attack.

    That is a very broad question. I could probably spend the next year pasting in newspaper clippings, and not really capture the answer. I could probably also write a much, much longer critique here, if you really need it... Are you sure you don't want to be more specific? – Shog9 Oct 22 '11 at 3:42
  • @Shog9, I'm open to suggestions to narrow it down – DForck42 Oct 22 '11 at 18:03

That is a very broad question. You could narrow it down considerably and it would still be a fairly broad question:

  • What was the impact of the 9/11 WTC attacks on US foreign policy?
  • What was the impact of the 9/11 WTC attacks on the US economy?
  • What was the impact of the 9/11 WTC attacks on US law?
  • What was the impact of the 9/11 WTC attacks on US pop culture?
  • Etc...

You might fill a book trying to answer any one of those; trying to answer all of them and more in the space of a single answer seems unlikely to succeed. On top of that, the question isn't bounded by a specific time-frame either, so the implication is that anything that changed between then and now should be considered.

My recommendation is that you try to focus a bit on what you need to know, describe what you're researching or curious about, and let the question follow from that.
