I worked as a psychotherapist with some of the people in those buildings that lived, and with families of those who didn't.
It seems like almost yesterday that people were crying in the streets and the streets were filled with soot for weeks and weeks after the terrorist attack.
But everything's okay now at Iowa State University.
International Studies students were given an assignment: "Write a paper that gives a historical account of 9-11 from the perspective of the terrorist network. In other words, how might Al-Qaeda or a non-Western historian describe what happened."
It was to be a 500-word minimum essay and the leftist morons defended the proposal.
"As you can see, the assignment was in no way an attempt to diminish the tragic events of September 11, 2001," one ISU moron told The College Fix. "Nor was it designed to support the goals of Al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations."
It's simply an attempt to understand why they hate us and what we can do to get them to like us. In other words, a fool's errand.
The spokes moron added: "This is similar to the vital work being performed in our nation's diplomatic and intelligence operations, such as Central Intelligence Agency, or the State Department's Bureau of Intelligence and Research."
Perhaps I'm being too judgmental of ISU (aka "FU") but I don't know how I would feel and react to papers that describe the Al Qaeda terrorists drinking and having sex with prostitutes the night before, praying the day of the attack, and slitting the throats of the crew as they grabbed the controls.
Call me crazy.
It's just jihad, stupid. It's in their war manual they call the Koran. It's evil and you don't need a college degree to understand that.
