    I have a feeling that Al Qeada wanted Massoud dead because he was a threat.
    Oh, I don't doubt it. I just think it was tangentially related to the 9/11 attacks. The headline on the Fox Story is (unsurprisingly) misleading -- it clearly is meant to evoke the attacks on the Twin Towers and Pentagon when the incident in question had nothing to do with that.

    Excuse me? The guy in question had quite literally NOTHING to do with the attacks on the WTC and the Pentagon.

    Report: One of Taliban Five Possibly Linked to 9/11 Terror Attack

    Fox News Channel's Catherine Herridge reported Mohammad Fazl, one of the five top Taliban commanders that were swapped for U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, played a key role in al Qaeda’s planing of September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

    On September 9, 2001, Fazl facilitated the assignation of Northern Alliance commander. Ahmed Shah Massoud in a suicide bombing which the 9/11 commission deemed as the first part of al Qaeda’s three-step plan. Fazi reportedly helped with step two as well which was an coordinated al Qaeda attack with the Taliban against the Northern Alliance.

    Exactly what do you base this nonsensical claim on?
    <font size=5><b>Its been several weeks since the Vegas shooting.  Its it still "Too Early" or can we start having the conversation about finally doing something about these mass shootings???​</b></font>

    No,no our little friend. It is your hero Ann Coulter who said this about the widows of 911 victims
    "I've never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much.
    She was the asswipe who forgot these were real people falling out those two towers.

    Don't forget that your left wing friends are the ones that had Osama bin Laden killed. Not your ilk...
