Washington's goal was a favorable political settlement producing a pacified Afghan state run by a regime totally responsive to U.S. political, economic and strategic interests; a native sepoy army led by white officers; and U.S. bases that threaten Iran, watch China, and control the energy-rich Caspian Basin.

According to Syeda, who is communications manager of CAIR/LA, there are an estimated 7 to 10 million Muslims in the U.S. She described 9/11 as a double tragedy for the Muslim community, which mourned the loss of 3,000 Americans in the terro...
