Teens: Ah, Who’s Osama Bin Laden?

News of Osama bin Laden’s death seemed to have struck a chord with younger folks who grew up during the war on terrorism. On Yahoo!, 1 in 3 searches for “how did osama bin laden die” on Sunday were from teens ages 13-17.  According to Yahoo!, 40% of searches on Sunday for “who killed osama bin laden” were from people ages 13-20. However, it seems teens ages 13-17 were seeking more information as they made up 66% of searches for “who is osama bin laden?”/Yahoo Search Blog. More here.

Question: Are you amazed that many teens don't know who Osama bin Laden is/was?
