With Friends Like These——

The most recent WikiLeaks docu-dump contains much that we should already have surmised, most notably that Saudi Arabia is the largest bankroller of Al Qaida. No surprise there! Weren’t all 19 of the 9/11 hijackers from Saudi Arabia?

Where did the Saudi’s get most of their wealth? Who developed their oil infrastructure and who convinced them to value their oil exclusively in dollars? If you guessed the USA, you would be right. They have taken the money we have given to them and they have passed a sizable amount on to the terrorists.

So, it follows that the USA is actually the biggest funder of terrorism. Ouch! The law of unintended consequences can be brutal.
