Although the September 11, 2001 attacks may feel like a distant memory to some, they have repercussions affecting our country to this day.
Our on-going fight against global terrorism has never stopped since. And it appears the danger is ever-present.
The full details of the historic terrorist attack, however, have never been released to public. That should change, at least according to GOP front runner Donald Trump.
He has recently stated his desire that the 9/11 Commission’s report on the attacks should be shown to the public. Most concerning to him is a potential link between the terrorists and Saudi Arabia.
According to Breitbart:
“I think I know what it’s going to say,” Trump speculated. “It’s going to be very, very profound, having to do with Saudi Arabia and Saudi Arabia’s role on the World Trade Center, and the attack.”
“And you know, I’ve said it for a long time. We attacked Iraq. And frankly by attacking Iraq – they were not the ones who knocked down the World Trade Center,” added Trump, who has long been a critic of President George W. Bush’s decision to invade Iraq. “Now I’ve been saying that for a long time. Let’s see what the papers say … I think they’re going to be finally, at least in some form, released.”
Those are some strong words, to say the least. Suspicions have surrounded Saudi Arabia ever since the attacks, though there has never been any definite evidence connecting them. Should the reports hit the public, who knows what the reaction might be?
But is Donald Trump right?
Would we be better off knowing whether or not there is a connection?
Will you feel better knowing Saudi Arabia had a hand (perhaps) in the 9/11 attacks?
