What Afghans Don't Know

What is this 9/11 thing of which you speak?  That may be the response of most Afghans, according to this Atlantic Wire mention of a Wall Street Journal story.
According to a survey of 15- to 30-year-old men in the two southern provinces where President Barack Obama sent the bulk of American surge troops, 92% of respondents said they didn't know about "this event which the foreigners call 9/11" after being read a three-paragraph description of the attacks.
 They must really wonder what the hell we're doing there.
