Third World News Service

To those of us saturated in the age of the television and internet, the events of 9/11 were experienced nearly simultaneously.  Yet we forget that there are hosts of people who've never heard of 9/11 nor the city where it took place.

This fascinating report from Afghanistan shows that large portions, if not the overwhelming majority, of that nation have never heard of 9/11, and hence, have no conception of why American forces are present in their country.

Surely the ignorance of the population, as to our mission, does not invalidate the righteousness of our cause (at least initially), but it should put doubts into our minds as we enter a new decade of presence there.  It should also cause concern that we're breeding contempt for America in a new generation of Afghans.
