Just in case you wanted to know why it all happened 6 years ago, the BBC have the answer! The BBC have a news service for children called “CBBC Newsround” this is their explanation for why it all happened:

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.

So there you go children –America asked for it!

The Biased BBC blog have got on to this one and the BBC have pulled the page from their website and replaced it with a 9/11 time line. The google cache of the page still exists here. At Biased BBC you can read the whole transcript of what the BBC wanted to teach children about the terrorist attacks of 2001. The world is going mad.

    I thought the “rape victim asked for it” defense was disregarded decades ago. I also thought that Bin Laden claimed responsibility for the attack. What’s with this “widely thought to have been behind the attacks” business. Don’t we know Al-Qaeda did it? Or, does the BBC subscribe to the leftist conspiracy theories?

    I think the BBC subscribes to anti-American leftist conspiracy theories
