I could see parents sheltering their 3-5 year old kids about the whole Osama / 9-11 / extremist / etc thing

And to be honest, after some point the news just stopped talking about him. Eventually they talked about him as much as a lot of foreign politicians and heads of state that I wouldn't know much about.




That ALL being said, unless they were around 1999 they should at least know the basics.

It's not like it was the USS Cole bombing, which a number of civilians never really cared about. This was a big flippin' deal that was talked about for years, cost a lot of lives, and a big US landmark.

I'm not sure if I would have known who Osama Bin Laden was if I was 15 or 16 ten years after 9/11. And I turned out... sort of okay.

My kids are 14 and 15, and have grown up during the wars and political climate that have been the aftermath of Bin Laden. I honestly don't even know how it would be possible to grow up in this country over the last ten years and still not know who he is. It would require a level of oblivious apathy that's hard to even imagine.
