Think tank: 92% of Afghans never heard of 9/11
By Daniel Tencer
Fewer than one in 10 Afghans are aware of the 9/11 attacks and their precipitation of the war in Afghanistan, says a study from an international think tank.
A report (PDF) from the International Council on Security and Development (ICOS) shows that 92 percent
of those surveyed had never heard of the coordinated multiple attacks on US soil on September 11, 2001.
It also shows that four in 10 Afghans believe the US is on their soil in order to “destroy Islam or occupy Afghanistan.”
