Will "Into Darkness" be a 911 parable?

Listening to Cumberbatch describe his character as a terrorist but who is very 3 dimensional, with a very grey morality. He says that the methods are abhorent but the audience will likely sympathize with the motives. He also says that Harrison seems himself as the underdog and likely justifies his extreme actions because he is fighting such a powerful force like Starfleet. And we know from the trailer that Harrison attacks Starfleet in a big 911 style attack. This got me thinking. Will "Into Darkness" be a parable on 911 and terrorism with a message that basically says "terrorist are not really pure evil because while their methods are abhorent, their motives might be sympathetic and they only do what they do because they see themselves as the underdog?
