BBC for Kids: U.S to blame for 9/11

Wow. Just Wow.

The BBC set up a website to explain 9/11 to children. One section (after they define Al Qaeda in non-judgmental terms) is, Why did they do it?

Now you would expect an explanation of radical beliefs… You’d be wrong:

The way America has got involved in conflicts in regions like the Middle East has made some people very angry, including a group called al-Qaeda – who are widely thought to have been behind the attacks.

In the past, al-Qaeda leaders have declared a holy war – called a jihad – against the US. As part of this jihad, al-Qaeda members believe attacking US targets is something they should do.

When the attacks happened in 2001, there were a number of US troops in a country called Saudi Arabia, and the leader of al-Qaeda, Osama Bin Laden, said he wanted them to leave.

You see, it’s the U.S. fault for offending the whole world. We brought 9/11 on ourselves. Geeze! And this is from the BBC not Al Jazeera.

Not to mention the Beeb, is teaching kids that killing 3000 people is OK if you don’t like something they did which I’m sure their teachers will love when they have to control them in the lunchroom.

Read the whole thing, there is not a single word of condemnation for AQ and in fact they defend them. Unfreakingbelievable.
