Dear Secretary Clinton:

The United States was NEVER attacked by Afghanistan. We were attacked by Saudi Arabia. Last I checked the official story says the 19 hijackers were Saudi.

That is why he will never be President.

Reality - our own police have killed more of us in the last twenty
Terrorism is a problem we will deal with

Sanders is correct - Jobs - healthcare - banking - ENVIRONMENT
These are the issues that will have more direct impact on us


WAR WAR WAR - it is not the answer - It is not even the most important question

14. That's kind of splitting hairs.

The government of Afghanistan was complicit. We worked with the "Northern Alliance" who were fighting against the Taliban. At the time, the people who attacked us were not "in many places" -- they were in Afghanistan. Had we committed to securing a 10-mile radius in Tora Bora, we could have had Bin Laden early on. (That was TOO much reliance on any who said "I'm on your side."

12. The US wasn't attacked by Saudi Arabia either.

 

The US was attacked by a terrorist group being sheltered by the Taliban in Afghanistan. That group drawing a lot of recruits from the heartland of Wahhabism doesn't equate to Saudi Arabia attacking the US.

20. The nation of Saudi Arabia wasn't funding Al Qaida

And it is pure idiocy to think so.

Al Qaida had as its goal the overthrow of Saudi Arabia. Still does, actually.

24. Okay, your post made me laugh

and I really, really needed to tonight. And you are very correct. Many Saudi billionaires financed the 9/11, but are you sure that number 19 is correct? I know it is a high number, but I am not too sure it is that high, just asking.

32. And yet, the BBC reported that many of those suspected hijackers

weren't involved in the hijacking and were actually alive after 9/11.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/1559151.stm

I wonder how many of those hijackers' identities were actually people who had been rounded up by Ashcroft in the immediate aftermath of 9/11?

33. Why the rudeness?

I simply asked the question because I knew there were a lot of Saudi involved, but I thought other nationalities were as well. That is why I asked. A couple of the sources said 15 of the 19 were Saudi; another said 11. This article at the below link lists the nationality of each hijacker, for example:

pilot of plane which hit Pentagon was Saudi Arabian
pilot of plane which hit WTC North Tower was Egyptian
pilot of plane which hit WTC South Tower was from United Arab Emirates
pilot of the the crashed flight in Pennsylvania was Lebanese

http://www.fairus.org/issue/identity-and-immigration-status-of-9-11-terrorists

Looks like the number this source reveals as Saudi is 15.
