Reader comment on item: America's Hidden Jihad

Agree completely. However, the obvious (to my mind) reason why an esp. Obama led admin sweep all 'jihadi' ref under tge carpet is quite simple. The House of Bush, or at least its Spirit, still haunts/pervades the WH and the US Establishment, and where te HoB goes the House of Saud treads in tandem and in sync. So despite the fact that the US now imports less than 40% of its oil from the Gulf, the influence of the HoS is become seemingly part of the fabric of the US Establishment.

All that has to happen is for a senior HoS figure to 'have a word' with the WH and everything goes their way at high speed. From 9/11 (I speculate there...) to the ME wars to ISIS, HoS is behind it all and the US, far from having its own F&D policies, is driven by They who Supplied US oil for the last 40 years. One could almost speculate/opine how far te US is governed from the WH and how far from Riyadh...
