People do "forget" really important things, or to put it another way the politically correct thugs decide what version of history will be allowed to be taught, I am a Brit and was teaching a class of late teen, early twenties here in the UK, Winston Churchill came up, not one student knew who he was, George Orwell's novel, 1984, same result, the only person in the room that knew of either was a fellow tutor and she is Lithuanian. Not one English student knew of arguably the greatest Englishman who ever lived. I have since left the industry and will not be going back.

Zero Dark Thirty is a good dramatization of the facts surrounding the CIAs efforts leading up to killing UBL. But it doesn't tell the whole story.
Prime has a documentary airing called CIA Declassified that tells the whole story including 2 opportunities to capture and 8 opportunities to kill him between May of 98 and May of 99.
Season 1 Episode 3.
Both are a must see if you havent.

*Warning* Contains extremely graphic content and torture of al-qaeda prisoners at a CIA black site.

i did not get a chance to watch the whole video, but thank you for taking part.
i know many don't care, or even want to know, but some of us appreciate the effort of the riders!
it sheds light on this horrific event, and it shows support to the families affected by this attack.
thank you!

same here... like in other developed Countries...
in Italy the fathers of our constitution... people who fought a civil war... and poured blood...
are nowadays forgotten by most of the youngsters... grown up with freedom and rights... they owed to these men and women of the past...
in addition many of these young boys love instead hollow comedians who tell lie every time they had to...
i think that perhaps this is the price to pay for living in the lucky part of the world...

memories imho are one of the most important foundation of a nation

The only thing Stair mentioned was "The Squad".
It's not like there was a full on political discussion going.
Jeesh, I think you owe Stair an apology.
