That would explain it

So I am reading a U.N. press release dated 02/10/2001, and it is talking about the 9/11 attacks.

"Wait a minute," I am thinking. "How can a February press release be discussing an event that will not happen until September of that year?"

Then I realized that the U.N. must use the European rather than American convention for dates, in which the day is listed before the month.

So, actually, the press release should have been referring to the 11/09 attacks.
