Taliban: U.S. using 9/11 attacks as pretext for Muslim violence

The Taliban have accused the United States of killing tens of thousands of Afghans and brutally torturing others in a defiant statement marking the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks against the United States.

The statement accuses the United States of using the September 11 attacks as a pretext for violence against Muslims and says the Afghan people have "an endless stamina for a long war" and could rise up as a nation "to send the Americans to the dustbin of history."

    @Ruffnutt. No it's not the same, we don't own Afghanistan and we didn't attack her but she let terrorists train in her lands and plot a horrible terror attack that killed thousands. Totally different than what happened 200 years ago.
