9-11: A Day We Will All Remember

9-11 is a day we will all remember for the rest of our lives, especially those of us who were alive on that day.

Perhaps it was just as well George W. Bush was President, because if I had been President things might have been very different. First, no Saudi nationals would have been permitted to leave the United States until I personally read each and every FBI report on every Saudi national that would be interviewed by the FBI following the 9-11 attack. In that 15 of the 19 terrorists were Saudi nationals, I would have informed the Saudi ambassador to the United States that the government of Saudi Arabia's cooperation into the investigation is of paramount importance, and if we did not receive their complete and full cooperation, that a state of war against Saudi Arabia could be declared. Saudi Arabia would also be asked to show their good faith by offering to assume financial liability for all deaths and damages done to properties in the United States as a result of the terrorist attacks.

Second, I would not have looked for an excuse to go to war with Iraq. It is my opinion, that the Bush administration went to war against Iraq to divert the country's attention away from Saudi Arabia, the home of 15 of the 19 terrorists. With pressure brought to bare on Saudi Arabia, the act of financially supporting terrorists by Saudi citizens would be further investigated by the FBI.

Taking such actions might strain the relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia, but their kingdom would know that the United States will not tolerate another attack.
