The attacks on September 11th, 2001 were planed and carried out by Egyptians and Saudis, the financing came mostly from Saudis. There is evidence that Ben Laden wasn’t in Afghanistan at the time of the attacks but in Pakistan. So why did we attack Afghanistan and Iraq?
Oh another rarely mentioned fact, the Taliban offered to extradite Ben Laden if we could just give them some evidence to support our request. Instead of evidence we gave then bombs and a raid by rangers, who missed their target as usual.
Just something to contemplate amid all the patriotic hoopla.
