United States President George W. Bush declared a "War on Terror" which also saw the United States Army invade Iraq and oust their leader Saddam Hussein, beginning the Iraq War. At the same time, they also invaded Afghanistan, beginning the War in Afghanistan. This led to American forces installing a new government and attempting to stabilize the region, while clashing with the forces of the terrorist organizations Al-Qaeda and the Taliban.[citation needed]

Years later, a conflict erupted between the citizens over the place, some wanting it to remain untouched as a tribute to those who died and some wanted to construct there as a symbol of healing. Eventually, a riot broke up there between both fractions, the police and Commander Steve Rogers, accompanied by Sharon Carter. The riot was so violent that Rogers investigated if there was any supervillain behind it, however, he didn't found anything.[2]
