Lesley Stahl's lack of awareness of pretty much every issue raised in this piece sums up the problem with the American media. There were was nothing in there particularly groundbreaking. Was her astonishment at the suggestions that malevolent forces within the American hierachy might have had a lot more to do with the 11th September attacks actually genuine, or was she just pretending for the cameras? There is so much still unknown about the attacks, so many unanswered questions and little hard evidence has ever been put forward about who was actually responsible. Surely the Pakistani students scepticism is justified. It is also understandable that they would believe the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq were attacks on Islam, given that they were perpetrated by a deranged Christian fundamentalist (understandable, but wrong.)
