Saudis’ role in 9/11

Donald Trump recently brought up the 9/11 attacks having taken place during George W. Bush’s presidency.

He was just trying to hurt Jeb Bush, but his argument was childish.

However, there is a question about 9/11 that I believe has never been answered:

How much did the Saudi government know about the various terrorist attacks before they were carried out?

Al Qaida was started by Saudis, 15 of the 19 9/11 terrorists were from Saudi Arabia and there were several attacks in the United States and overseas during the ’90s. It was obvious that the Saudi government didn’t warn us because the attacks caused us a lot of damage.

Saudi Arabia is supposed to have one of the best intelligence groups in the Middle East.

With so many Saudi citizens involved, it is hard to accept that the Saudi government officials didn’t know about the various plots, including the 9/11 attacks.

One has to conclude that Saudi Arabia is not a real friend.
