I know you believe in your own alternate earth, but here on this one, the 9/11 bombers were identified shortly after the act. Their names and pasts are known. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hijack...ber_11_attacks
For starters, never use Wiki as a source to make your point, as no one is going to trust them as a reliable source of accurate information.
That said, I am well aware of the nationality of the various scumbags involved with 9/11, and yes most of them were from SA.

While I did not take offense to your comment, lets be clear about something.
Saudi Arabia has never been officially accused of the 9/11 attacks have they?
So if the answer is no, then me saying that, is not "believing an an alternate earth". Frankly anyone believing that SA's government was directly responsible could be accused of such, when no other governing body on earth has made that claim.
Fair enough?

Now on to the most important thing that you may have overlooked or not even read yet. That being my post where I provided proof of my claim;

I await your reply.

Even wiki can get the names and nationalities of the 9/11 attackers correct. They were just the handiest place to get the list.

As for the Saudi government being "officially" accused, of course they weren't. Members of the bin Laden family were flown out of the US, when the rest of us were grounded. Now I'll bet that the CIA/NSA does know to what extent the Saudi government was involved, but you and I will never know that. Why? For exactly the same reasons that we sell arms to the Saudis.

I wonder why you think that the relationship between the US and the SA gov is open and aboveboard. It isn't. I am convinced that what we are allowed to know isn't more than 10% of what there is to know.

Trump administration gets green light to sell arms to Saudi Arabia, after Senate rejects veto overrides
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/tru...eto-votes-fail

Three votes Monday to override Trump's vetoes failed. Each required a two-thirds vote.

The White House also argued that stopping the sales would send a signal that the United States didn't stand by its partners and allies, particularly at a time when threats from hostile countries such as Iran have been increasing.
This is not a win at all for the USA. I don't think it's in our best interest to be selling our weapons to any country, at all, whatsoever! Especially one as shady as Saudi Arabia.

Oh wait, he was part of your team, so anything he did was great, but anything Trump does is evil.

Classic example of TDS on display.
Well, for the record, I was an Obama supporter, but his constant attack on the second amendment ticked me off, so I stopped supporting him. And well, I was a supporter of Trump, but he's been doing some shady stuff as well. Most notable was the claiming he was going to finally pull us out of Afghanistan, but as soon as Netanyahu started making noise, Trump backed down from pulling them out. This selling our arms is another thing I am not happy with. I'm just hoping that maybe they have tracking devices on them so we can keep tabs of where they are going.

Netanyahu convinced Trump not to pull troops out of Afghanistan ? I've seen plenty of ways Israel and Jews supposedly control the U.S., but that's a new one for me.
