Darleen, can we establish what the 1998 Fatwa actually says and what it doesn't say? I really have to wonder how brainwashed someone has to be to look at the 1998 Fatwa and insist that the grievances listed are not the motives. It explicitly lays out what they object to
1. U.S. occupation of the Arabian Peninsula.
2. U.S. aggression against the Iraqi people.
3. U.S. support of Israel.

and says what they want to do
"to liberate the al-Aqsa Mosque [in Jerusalem] and the holy mosque [in 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."
This part of the sentence is omitted by Tenet and others.
Darleen, you ignore what the Fatwa says, you invent what you want it to say and you ignore the evidence I show you that US officials are manipulating the public by omitting the reason why when they quote from it.
What gives? Instead of dealing with the main point you want to run off on tangents and also sink to calling people "anti-Semites" for daring to point out the truth.
