On 9/11/01 A group of largely Saudi terrorists and radical Islamists hijacked planes and crashed them into important symbols of American economic and military power. Our response was to ignore the fact that Saudis were chiefly responsible and instead bomb Afghanistan because it was our belief that someone there had planned the attack. A Saudi.
All of this would seem odd to anyone observing it. It was like attacking Mexico when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor because someone involved in the planning had visited Mexico on their vacation that year and had done some planning while there.
Yes, I am aware that the 9/11 attack wasn’t a Saudi national act. But neither was it an Afghani. And to this day our government has continued to whitewash the fact that the terrorists came from Saudi Arabia and so did their backing.
Lest we forget…
