On September 11, 2001 the greatest military and economic power was attacked by terrorists. The whole world was incensed by the precisely planned terrorist attack on the American symbol of economic success and prosperity - World Trade Center (WTC) as well as on the center of the military power - the Pentagon in Washington D. C. The attack on the mighty USA made the whole world realize that even the strongest state was not totally secure in the global village. Those tragic events dominated Polish press. Reporters who were sent to the place of attack described the atmosphere of those sites, the communication paralysis and the panic of the society. The emotional character of the reporters' accounts from the place where the events had taken place was probably to convey the atmosphere of a paralyzing fear which overwhelmed the United States. The character of the attacks proved that there were no unreachable goals for terrorists. The new threat united and mobilized the world in the common fighting against the evil of a global character, the evil which had touched the United States, proving that all countries of the western hemisphere were threatened.
