  Saudi Arabia is really the core of the issue
The Saudi question on the table
-- to what extent have politicians in the West, particularly in America, turned a blind eye to the funding of Islamic insurgency, due to business relations with the oil rich kingdom? Loretta Napoleoni, has approached both in her books and in a number of published articles.
“Saudi Arabia is really the core of the issue. Until September 11th, Saudi Arabia was definitely the place where most of the funding came from, and the supporters of Al-Qaeda, were primarily in Saudi Arabia. We’re talking about bankers, businessmen, and merchants. If you read Bin Laden’s writings in the 1990s he often refers to the merchants, and to how the merchants are suffering because of the Saudi Royal family and the US. After 9/11 this phenomena has spread and they’re raising money all over the world. This is where the United States has a responsibility, because it hasn’t predicted the evolution of this organisation. Had they actually tackled Saudi Arabia financiers in the 1980s, and they knew who these people were, we wouldn’t be where we are today”. --

(The article is over a year old, but to read fun-facts like these: Osama in pills... 8. One of Osama bin Laden’s most profitable businesses is his Gum Arabic Company Ltd in Sudan – gum arabic is a substance used to stop sediment forming in soft drinks and to create a protective shell around sweets and pills. Gum Arabic Company Ltd supplies 80 per cent of the world’s demand for this product.
