IOWA STATE UNIVERSITY professor asks students to write an account of 9/11 from the al-Qaeda terrorists point of view
That’s right, we are just so tired of hearing all the weeping accounts of mass devastation, lives in ruin, loved-ones lost, businesses destroyed, worldwide panic, yada, yada, yada. So, let’s look at 9/11 from a happier perspective – that of the 9/11 Muslim terrorists themselves.
Breitbart According to a report from The College Fix, Professor James Strohman, who teaches International Relations, asked students to write a 500-word essay giving a “historical account of 9/11 from the perspective of the terrorist network. In other words, how might Al-Qaeda or a non-Western historian describe what happened.”
“Don’t worry about the fact you don’t agree with the terrorists, the point of the exercise is to consider completely different perspectives,” the assignment continues.
People soon reacted angrily to the assignment on Twitter, describing it as “sick” and “shameful.”
However, ISU’s communications officer told The College Fix that the exercise was “no way an attempt to diminish the tragic events of September 11, 2001, nor was it designed to support the goals of Al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations.”
Professor Strohman, who is a registered Democrat, has taught at the university for over 10 years and has “written extensively on American government and politics. He is also a member of the Iowa Employment Appeal Board.”
