Let's do some maths

20% of 200 million is 40 million.

40,000,000 / 3,000 is approx 13,000.

Each person in America would therefore need to know 13,000 people for this to be true.

However, if each American has 200 Facebook friends, then it's almost certain that 'a friend of a friend' will have been killed on September 11th 2001.

Does that make it true? Well, sort of, in a 6 degrees of separation kind of way.
