9-11 Observation

I sat and watched a video interview deal that a student team did on George Mason University (a significant university in Virginia).  The topic?  They walked around the university and asked dozens of college students why the US was attacked on 9-11.

The typical answer?  Most students said they didn't know the reason which triggered 9-11.  A handful commented that it was George Bush's fault, but they rendered a one-star explanation.  They then asked the students if there should be classes to talk more on 9-11....which almost all of them agreed that would be good thing.

So, the video in the end points out.....these were all people who were around age four when 9-11 occurred.  Their knowledge level is non-existent....of an event which occurred less than twenty years ago.

The blame toward Bush?  You could have a laugh over the answer given.  The same guy would give similar answers over the banking crisis, the housing market collapse, and various oil tanker my humble opinion.  A smart guy in the background ought to quickly jump up and note that Bush was responsible for the Nazis coming to power, the riots in Detroit in the late 1960s, the trigger to causing the Vietnam War, and helped to send the iceberg into the path of the Titanic.
