9-11: All Our Fault

So says this blogger:

This is what Al-Qaeda was responding to that day, revolting against the United States policies which have plagued the Asian continent for far too long, in particular in proliferating the Afghanistan civil war from 1979-1989 against the Soviets by funding the Mujahideen, drawing the Soviets offsides into the war. Our government is constantly meddling in the affairs of the Saudis and Pakistanis, which have real world ramifications on the lives of the neighboring Afghanis, and they were responding to this too. And it's all for oil and new markets to exploit, destabilizing other regions to ensure our own stability. That is what 9/11 was about, Al-Qaeda striking back against those waging economically inspired wars. What options have we left them? Our economy is devastating the globe, forcing poverty and instability onto the weaker nations of the world, with our government murdering to protect it's precious capital.

So much nonsense in that one paragraph that it's hard to know where to start. Al Qaeda certainly did not object to our "proliferating" the Afghan struggle against the Soviets, since we were backing the Muslims. The Soviets weren't drawn offsides, and we don't do enough meddling in the affairs of the Saudis and the Pakistanis.

He shows basic ignorance of the facts; for example consider his claim of Dick Cheney having a conflict of interest:

What about Vice President Dick Cheney's conflicting ties with Halliburton, a company which has received billions of dollars in lucrative no-bid government contracts during the wars we are waging in the middle east, which Dick Cheney used to be Vice President of, who is holding 100,000 shares of unexercised Halliburton stock?

Let's see, Cheney used to be CEO (not vice president) of Halliburton, and he does not have any personal financial stake in the company. Although Cheney does some unexercised stock options, he has pledged any proceeds from those to charity. He was owed deferred compensation from Halliburton, but they handled that by purchasing an insurance annuity, so that if Halliburton were to go bankrupt tomorrow, he'd still get paid.

Cited for Breaking the Christmas in Cambodia story (at Kerry Haters):

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
