Nothing New Under The Sun

On September 11th, a monument was unveiled to the victims of a massacre of Americans perpetrated on 9/11 by those claiming allegiance to a religious cult while going against its basic principles. And hardly anybody noticed.

I don't know how well-known this story is in the USA, but I haven't met any Brits so far who were familiar with it. I think most of us are aware that September 11th is also the anniversary of the Chilean military coup in which Salvador Allende was murdered and General Pinochet installed himself as dictator, but the tale of another terrorist massacre on American soil has fallen beneath the radar here.
