I was about ten years old too, since my b'day is in late December, it was about a a week before I started secondary school I remember.
Then my aunts, I was at their house came to tell me, 'Come and see this!" on the news, and I was appalled at seeing such a tragedy.
Before 9/11 I never knew about Afghanistan, and least of all about Al Quaida. I kept on following on the news because it interested me, and maybe
when I finally heard he had been caught and shot the news took me by surprise. Needless to say it aroused my interest about the history of that
place and questions like ; Who was Osama BIn Laden? What was his cause? Why did he do that? What about Afghanistan and it's history?
USA in my opinion fusses too much about 9/11. One would say they are hurt from it. Fine they have every right but if you look at it more deeply.
What does Afghanistan have to respond, in the name of all the atrocities committed in the american military base supposedly used for questioning?
Truth be told, I recently watched Zero Dark Thirty, and it totally changed my views on how I thought about Afghanistan and Terrorism. There is more
than one way to be a Terrorist and it does not have to be Al Quaida.
Added to the fact that seemingly when messups happen, ( Explosions, Bombings, Attempted attacks etc), Al Quaida is the first to get the blame, proves
that USA never healed from the 9/11 attacks and probably never will.
I still say Al Quaida ( after the death of their prominent leader) will rise again,but maybe that is my theory, the hacktivists known as 'Anonymous'
hint a lot to some sort of terrorist league like Al Quaida and like them there are many, and many who dislike USA and what they do due to the war
I still think that the way USA conducted their operation to kill BIn Laden was strange and in a way unjust. They should have caught him, and
prosecuted him like any other man irrespective of what he had done and you would think that after all that Afghanistan/Pakistan/Iran and so on, do not
I suppose they do and contradict me if they don't.
