Iowa State University Assignment: Write about 9/11 from the Terrorists’ Perspective

It sounds like an overcorrection on trying to understand radical Islam at Iowa State University. Students were instructed to write about the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 as if they were sympathizers with radical Islam:

“Write a paper that gives a historical account of 911 from the perspective of the terrorist network. In other words, how might Al-Qaeda or a non-Western historian describe what happened,” stated the assignment, a copy of which was obtained by The College Fix.

“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 adds.
