    Is today Misleading Headline Day?

    The claim is that the guy might have been involved with the assassination of a Northern Alliance commander two days before 9/11.

    Didn't get the media matters memo yet or just want to ignore the events may have well been related.

    There's no hope. We have killed the No. 2 al Qaeda at least 6 times. We invaded Iraq and destroyed the country, its infrastructure, its people and its future even though the Taliban was in Afghanistan. That was a brilliant White House tactic.

    The Taliban numbered a few thousand before we invaded Afghanistan. Now they number in the tens of thousands and suddenly 1 in 5 are responsible for 9/11. LOL! Apparently we have the ability to survey Taliban members as to their participation in the 9/11 attacks and in doing so we find that 1 in 5 report their involvement. Yet at the same time, we don't know who or where most of those people are!

    It's related to 9/11.

    The assassination was ordered by Al Qaeda.

    If Unitedwestand is around maybe he'll chime in.

    Or you can always fall back on old technology and read the "9/11 Commission Report."

    Or you can fall back on saying this was made up **** to embarrass Barck Obama back in 2004.

    Last week a delivery boy for the Taliban ate Ramen noodles for breakfast. Ramen noodles are now thought to be connected to 9/11.

    I think he means that 1 of the 5 Taliban we traded for Bergdahl was "involved" in 9/11. That doesn't make the story any less BS, though.

    the assassination of Ahmed SHah Massoud happened two days before 9/11.

    he was the best fighter in the northern alliance and might have been a better leader than Karzai (unfortunatly the ethnic Pashtun's would never accept him as leader of Afghanistan because Massoud was a ethnic Tajik)

    I have a feeling that Al Qeada wanted Massoud dead because he was a threat.
