Worst year for liberals
designated as: International year of volunteers
Preceded by: 2000
Succeeded by 2002

2001 was, by many people, a very awful year due to the 9/11 (The worst terrorist attack in American history) attacks which occurred in this year at New York City.

According to Governmental Agencies such as NASA, Wikipedia, and a few people, this year also marks the first year of the new millennium (Though most people hold this distinction for the year 2000).

Further George W Bush was inaugurated though he had no right to be President because Al Gore got more votes in the 2000 U.S. Presidential Election. For both of these reasons, American Liberals felt that it was a bad year. Due to 9/11 Dubya signed the USA PATRIOT Act & established the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) which began to take away American Civil liberties.

However Timothy J. McVeigh (responsible for the Oklahoma city bombings) was executed on June 11 2001 at the age of 33.
