The attack began when members opened fire on a crowd of an estimated 5,000 people, killing hundreds, continuing the attack, several IEDs were detonated in buildings across the city, causing many to collapse and kill thousands more. The attack continued throughout the city with the members killing thousands more. The United States efficiently dealt with the terrorists and sent in the national guard and security at the Pentagon was set at Def-con 3.
