Steeler questions accounts of 9/11

As sporting teams, fans and athletes across America Monday celebrated the news Osama bin Laden had been killed, Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall was raising eyebrows with his views on the terror leader.

Through various posts on his Twitter account, Mendenhall questioned the widespread reaction of joy at bin Laden's demise, while also expressing his doubts as to whether the public really knew the truth about 9/11.
"What kind of person celebrates death? It's amazing how people can HATE a man they have never even heard speak. We've only heard one side," Mendenhall wrote, before adding his view on the Twin Towers attack.

"We'll never know what really happened. I just have a hard time believing a plane could take a skyscraper down demolition style."Steelers president Art Rooney II didn't know what to make of Mendenhall's comments.
