    As we all know...or should know...Bin Laden never mentioned the Palestinians as a cause until well after 9/11. In all his interviews prior to 9/11, and any pamphlets, literature his group had out, the Palestinians were never mentioned. Hosni Murbarak even commented on his(Bin Laden) sudden(cynical) interest in the Palestinians when he realized it would help his PR. Now he threatens the U.S. again, and of course the same anti-Israel writers will jump on the bandwagon. Bin Laden stated motive for 9/11 was U.S. troops on Saudi Arabia soil, period. He was outraged that U.S. troops did not leave after Gulf War 1 which was about oil, not Israel. Saddam invading Kuwait and his expected attack into Saudi Arabia giving him control of over 20% of all known oil in the world was the reason for the war.
