The purpose of terrorism is to create widespread _terror_ (the
hint is in the word).

Was the terror caused by 9/11 because of the economic impact, or because
3000 innocent people died in such a terrible and unexpected manner ? If
the goal was "lets get those Amercians and the grand financial
institutions", Fort Knox might have been a better target for the
terrorists.

I strongly recommend reading the book I quote below, which deals exactly
with this topic.
