How Much the French Hate the US Revealed

In what has to be the most disturbing thing I've read in awhile, the Transatlantic Intellegencer posts a question from a school exam and what it really means:

The following figured among the essay questions in the final exam in history and geography given in French junior high schools [collèges] last week, i.e. to 14-15 year old students:

“How was American power contested on September 11, 2001?”

This amounts to presenting the Islamist attacks against the world’s greatest democracy ... as one form of contestation among others. A good illustration of the training in anti-Americanism provided by the Ministry of Education.

This is a must read, and I highly recommend reading the whole post.
