Reader comment on item: What Riyadh Buys [in Washington]

Submitted by I (United States), Jan 29, 2003 at 01:42

Osama Bin Laden, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and other Saudi masterminds of 9/11 - have been given a free pass. Every single high level operative in this country (i.e. someone who bribed a US government official for either their citizenship or their Visa or their access to information to help plan 9/11) - be they Lebanese or Saudi or Egyptian - is still making money on sweet government contracts today.

Pakistan and India intel knew the whereabout of OBL's deadly crew (oh puh-leeze, whose kidding whom, "we don't know where he is") - they moved between the 11 Al Qaeda training camps in NE Pakistan adjoining the Kashmiri Line of Control, from Astor in Dec 2001 to Skardu etc. If OBL can get a free pass on 9/11, the rest of us are screwed, and American lives are in the gulf today protecting Saudi interests.

I surmise they have all been allowed to go scott free in exchange for us going to war with Iraq to prevent Iraq from invading Saudi Arabia. It will get a lot worse before it gets better. This has nothing to do with partisanship, both sides of the aisle are equally guilty, the issue is that this country runs on corruption, not oil, and unless the citizenry end corruption (how?) we are doomed as a nation.
