    Just a blog post I thought was well put:
    (don't necessarily agree that the eliminating the Saudi regime is a good idea - even though they are morally responsible for 9/11, because a lot of them support Al Qaeda and their message - but I'm worried about something worse ending up in their place)

    To be fair, we didn't go into Iraq until March of 03. I know they tried to tie Saddam in with bin Laden, but that was quickly rescinded.

    Still way too many morons believe Iraq and 9/11 are somehow related

    38% believe that the US has found clear evidence in Iraq that Saddam Hussein was working closely with Al Qaeda.
    - 31% believe that Iraq gave substantial support to Al Qaeda but was not involved with the September attacks while an additional 15% believe that Iraq was directly involved in carrying out the September 11 attacks.

    So, we shouldn't have gone into Afghanistan at all to clear out where AQ was openly operating training camps and the head of their operation was known to be?

    You're missing the main point of the posting. We didn't go after the source. And everyone knows why, we are slaved to saudi oil. How many of our presidents have kissed the hands of saudi royalty. Who or what is the source? Saudis. This argument has been brought up many times. And someone always defends the saudi government. But look at the list of terrorists that have targeted high visibilty u.s. targets and where they were from. That doesn't mean the saudi government had a direct or indirect role but it does mean they were saudis. And that's a fact americans in general haven't accepted because it would mean americans are directly and indirectly sponsoring attacks against americans.
