The History of Afghanistan, The Greenwood Histories of the Modern Nations


After the September 11th attacks on America, many nations became entrenched in the War on Terror. With this escalating conflict came the names of many countries that the American public knew little about. Prior to 9/11, Americans knew Afghanistan simply as a country in the Middle East area. In the aftermath of 9/11, Americans now associate Afghanistan with words like Al Qaeda and the Taliban.
