Facts about 9/11. Not Fantasy.
Sean P writes, "Oh, and your claim that Bin Laden's attack was soley based on American foreign policy revealed what a delusional subchomsky drone you really are. "
Sean P, you seriously need to do some research, people are manipulating you. People in power, serving special interests who want the foreign policies to go unchallenged, deceive the public about why we are being attacked.
For example when George Tenet quotes the Fatwas he omits the motives, the clear statements about WHY the war is being declared. For example, from the 1998 Fatwa, Tenet quotes "The ruling to kill the Americans ..." but he chops off the end of the sentence that explicitly states WHY the ruling has been made: "in order to liberate the al-Aqsa Mosque and the holy mosque [Mecca] from their grip, and in order for their armies to move out of all the lands of Islam, defeated and unable to threaten any Muslim."
Look at George Tenet's Written Statement for the Record of the Director of Central Intelligence Before the Joint Inquiry Committee 17 October 2002. George Tenet makes the claim that bin Laden "In a series of declarations, he made clear his hatred for Americans and all we represent." and in order to support this lie he omits what the series of declarations explicitly say.
The fact is the series of declarations Tenet refers to do not make clear bin Laden's hatred "for Americans and all we represent", what bin Laden's declarations actually make clear is the specific grievances that he states explicitly.
"It should not be hidden from you that the people of Islam had suffered from aggression, iniquity and injustice imposed on them by the Zionist-Crusaders alliance and their collaborators; to the extent that the Muslims blood became the cheapest and their wealth as loot in the hands of the enemies. Their blood was spilled in Palestine and Iraq."
" The people of Islam awakened and realised that they are the main target for the aggression of the Zionist-Crusaders alliance."
"The latest and the greatest of these aggressions, incurred by the Muslims since the death of the Prophet (ALLAH'S BLESSING AND SALUTATIONS ON HIM) is the occupation of the land of the two Holy Places "
"the Zionist-Crusader alliance resorted to killing and arresting the truthful Ulama and the working Da'ees ... They killed the Mujahid Sheikh Abdullah Azzaam, and they arrested the Mujahid Sheikh Ahmad Yaseen and the Mujahid Sheikh Omar Abdur Rahman (in America). By orders from the USA they also arrested a large number of scholars, Da'ees and young people - in the land of the two Holy Places- among them the prominent Sheikh Salman Al-Oud'a and Sheikh Safar Al-Hawali and their brothers; ... We, myself and my group, have suffered some of this injustice ourselves; we have been prevented from addressing the Muslims."
"From here, today we begin the work, talking and discussing the ways of correcting what had happened to the Islamic world in general, and the Land of the two Holy Places in particular. We wish to study the means that we could follow to return the situation to its' normal path. And to return to the people their own rights, particularly after the large damages and the great aggression on the life and the religion of the people. An injustice that had affected every section and group of the people; the civilians, military and security men, government officials and merchants, the young and the old people as well as schools and university students. Hundred of thousands of the unemployed graduates, who became the widest section of the society, were also affected.
Injustice had affected the people of the industry and agriculture. It affected the people of the rural and urban areas. And almost every body complain about something. The situation at the land of the two Holy places became like a huge volcano at the verge of eruption that would destroy the Kufr and the corruption and its' sources. The explosion at Riyadh and Al-Khobar is a warning of this volcanic eruption emerging as a result of the sever oppression, suffering, excessive iniquity, humiliation and poverty."
"The inability of the regime to protect the country, and allowing the enemy of the Ummah - the American crusader forces- to occupy the land for the longest of years. The crusader forces became the main cause of our disastrous condition, particularly in the economical aspect of it due to the unjustified heavy spending on these forces. As a result of the policy imposed on the country, especially in the field of oil industry where production is restricted or expanded and prices are fixed to suit the American economy ignoring the economy of the country. Expensive deals were imposed on the country to purchase arms. People asking what is the justification for the very existence of the regime then?"
-From the 1996 Fatwa entitled "Declaration of War against the Americans Occupying the Land of the Two Holy Places."
