“In a statement emailed to media, the Taliban accused the United States of using the September 11 attacks as a pretext to invade Afghanistan and said the international community was responsible for killing thousands of Afghans during the invasion and ensuing occupation.

“‘Each year, 9/11 reminds the Afghans of an event in which they had no role whatsoever,’ the Taliban said. ‘American colonialism has shed the blood of tens of thousands of miserable and innocent Afghans.’”
