    Indeed . As did many of us. I said at the time this would only make things much worse in the region for the sake of short term domestic US political gain. There was never any plan for the aftermath from the get go apart from a vague 'hope for the best' it seems

    Obama under pressure to release secret pages of 9/11 report 'showing Saudi Arabia financed attacks' - Telegraph

    So again you believe what you want to believe and ignore actual reality. Read the Butler Report which was generated by your govt. You simply have a bad case of Bush Derangement syndrome. Seek help

    I believe what can be proven nothing more

    Why are you in denial ? Do you realise that 92% of Saudi's polled last year agree with ISIS aims ? They have both the money the people and motivation to have attacked you. I'm not really very interested in Whitewashes after the fact. Even dimwit Bush realised that attacking the Saudi's would be impossible given it would trigger an uprising by the whole Islamic world against it (hint Mecca is in Saudi Arabia) . The administration would also have been wary of triggering an energy crisis like happened post 1973 Yom Kippur only this time far worse. Iraq was therefore perfect patsy

    that is your narrative and opinion. Ever been or worked in Saudi? There is no reason for Saudi to fund 9/11. The reality is Bin Laden was Saudi but the Butler Report disagrees with your opinion. Further why are you continuing this narrative because there is nothing anyone can do now about what happened yesterday let along 14 years ago. Go ahead continue to bury your head in the sand, Hitler wasn't a threat to you either.

    No thats a fact and yes I worked in the capital Riyadh back in the 80s for 14 months

    The Butler report was denied access to materials pertaining to Saudi involvement which you would know if you had bothered reading what has already been linked for you

    Further why are you continuing this narrative because there is nothing anyone can do now about what happened yesterday let along 14 years ago.
    Because those like yourself who choose not to learn by past mistakes are condemned to repeat them. That seems to be what you would have us do

    Go ahead continue to bury your head in the sand, Hitler wasn't a threat to you either.
    Hitler has nothing to do with this. Ham fisted and profoundly stupid US foreign policy does

    Sorry but the comparison is real, Hitler was about world domination as is ISIS.

    Given there are only estimated to be some 30,000 of these guys out of 1.4 Billion Muslims you are rather overstating their significance

    They all need support, supply, information, equipment.... the 30,000 is likely much higher for those that support them and allow them to carry out their actions. It's likely 100x that, not to mention just plain old sympathizers in countries all over the world.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
