It’s been 17 years since the devastating 9/11 attack that not only changed America, but changed the world. However, a social experiment found that millennials in the US didn’t know some common facts about the terrorist attack.

From not knowing which organisation orchestrated it to which country was responsible for the attack, some even couldn’t answer in which year the tragedy took place. Strangely, while no one mentioned Osama Bin Laden, many thought former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was behind the attack.

Mark Dice, a media analyst and YouTuber posted the video online to underline a slogan coined after the attack – Never Forge. He wrote, “Never Forget? Millennials clueless about what happened on September 11th [sic]”
