Many still think Saddam Hussein was behind the attacks
A shock new video by Mark Dice illustrates how Americans – and mostly millennials – are completely clueless abut 9/11 as the fifteenth anniversary of the terror attack draws near.
Asked by Dice what organization was led by Osama Bin Laden, one man looked bemused before admitting he didn’t know.
“What was the name of the terrorist leader behind the 9/11 attacks?” Dice asked another woman.
“I always pronounce it wrong,” she responded, before answering “Haddam Hussein.”
Asked the same question, another blonde woman acknowledges that she has no idea, while another man wearing sunglasses answers; “Don’t remember.”
A long-haired man thinks the 9/11 mastermind was “Saddam Hussein,” as does another man wearing sunglasses.
The disturbing number of people who think the former President of Iraq was behind the attacks is in line with a poll conducted two years after the Iraq war began which found that 70 per cent of Americans still believed that Saddam Hussein was personally involved in 9/11.
“What country were most of the terrorists from that committed the 9/11 attacks?” Dice asks another woman, who responds, “Iraq, Iran, Syria, the Middle East?”
“Well, that’s a region,” responds Dice.
The same woman also thinks that the attacks happened in 2003 and that ISIS, a group that wasn’t formed until 13 years after the attacks, was behind them.
Asked what happened immediately after the September 11 attacks, a man wearing a blue shirt, responds “the war on Syria.”
The Syrian civil war began in 2011 and America never actually declared war on Syria.
Asked, “What were some of the targets of the 9/11 terrorist attacks?”, an older man responds, “I don’t know, I wanna get a beer, man.”
When asked what year the 9/11 attacks took place, one man immediately begins to walk away before stating, “I’m good.”
Only one man at the end of the clip is actually aware of the fact that Osama Bin Laden was fingered as the mastermind behind 9/11.
