For Bin Laden, The 9/11 Attacks Would Make The Least Sense

Aidan Monaghan

For alleged 9/11 mastermind Osama Bin Laden, whose alleged contempt of not only the U.S. but also Saudi Arabia’s royal family is well known, the attacks of September 11, 2001 made little sense.

Extended U.S. military ‘infidel’ presence in Saudi Arabia at the invitation of the Saudi royal family has been described as a primary cause for Bin Laden’s anti-U.S. rage. Contempt for western values is often cited as another factor.

Therefore, for Bin Laden, attacking Saudi and even neighboring oil production in Bin Laden’s very own backyard, would seem to have been the most logical course of action. Such attacks would have wreaked havoc upon not only the allegedly despised Saudi royals but also the U.S. economy and military and reportedly despised western civilization in general. The U.S., Saudi royals and western nations are hopelessly dependent upon middle eastern energy sources and the fortunes derived from them.

Destroying millions of square feet of office space located thousands of miles across the globe in spectacular fashion only served to ensure that the greatest war machine in history was now set into permanent motion against him and his primitive followers. The 9/11 attacks were a strategic and symbolic blunder and missed opportunity for the supposedly shrewd Bin Laden and his Al Qaeda organization.

As we can see, just one more aspect of the official 9/11 myth that makes little sense. Yet for a White House that came to Washington ready to wage war in the most energy rich region of the world and needing a publicly compelling reason, the 9/11 attacks were a perfectly timed dream come true.
