On November 24, 2002, Osama bin Laden commented on the 9/11 attack. “The very first reason he gave for the attack was our support of Israel in the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict. …Two other reasons were our having American troops stationed in…certain areas of Saudi Arabia considered to be sacred places by Muslims, and our stealing the oil of Muslims at paltry prices because of our international influence and military threats. He also blamed us for what he said was the death of 1.5 million Iraqi children from starvation because of our sanctions following the Gulf War.”
