The 9/11 Report cartoon

The speed with which the 9/11 attack is translated into popular culture is high. Here is an interesting example Slate presents The 9/11 Report as a cartoon.

It is done in the best American educational cartoon style: The heroes are all-American, square-jawed, straight-talking menfolk - the villains are buck-tooth, cross-eyed, mean-looking Arabs. Not too objective I guess, but an interesting thing, reminding me of the old educational cartoons on the history of the Second World War that I used to read.
