Some people aren't impressed with Jeremy Corbyn's 9/11 anniversary message

British Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn took to Twitter today to share his thoughts on the 15th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

But Corbyn – who played a leading role in the Stop the War Coalition opposed to the military interventions in Afghanistan and Iraq – quickly faced criticism for his choice of wording.

Many were unimpressed with his reference to the “wars and terror” that followed.

But others don’t really see a problem with it.

It’s difficult to please everyone, and Corbyn probably knows that well by now.
