(5 out of 5 stars)
"I rate this as 5-stars not from a vantage-point of enjoyment, but from a place of assessing it's importance.
This should be required viewing in schools, government, and elsewhere to truly understand how events unfolded. Yes, it provides background on the "seeds" that later sprouted so horrifically.
National Geographic was thorough, accurate, respectful yet honest, and well-rounded.
This is not a propoganda piece at all. NGS simply presentes information, photos, video footage, interviews & comments and background history on Afghanistan, Mujahadeen, Soviet Union in the Middle East in the 1980's, the 1993 bombing of the WTC, and other pertinent information which any of you can look up elsewhere to corroborate it.
This is not "easy" to watch. Any person with a heart and conscious will cringe at alot of what you will see and hear. Whatever your politics (and/or conspiracy theories), just watch this to appreciate your fellow everyday Americans. You really feel like you are "there" when you see this.
I don't recommend younger children watch this alone, and I would strongly encourage parents to discuss this with their children, no matter the age.
My own comment is: While the terrorists themselves committed these acts and are responsible, Americans truly need to learn and understand what America as a political entity and military power has done through the many decades to other countries and peoples.
