Al Qaeda Chief: 9/11 Result of US Foreign Policy


The man charged with orchestrating 9/11 reportedly wrote to President Obama that the terrorist attacks were in retaliation for decades of oppressive U.S. policies, the Hill reports.

Mohammed’s letter accuses US global military and intelligence operations, particularly in the Middle East. Israeli and US military actions in Gaza and the Palestinian territories, he writes, "are the clearest indication of why 9/11 happened, and why it may happen again in the future."

"It was of the utmost necessity to find the best way to stop your brutal foreign policy in our land,” he writes. “We did not start the war against you through the events of 9/11."

The former al Qaeda operations chief, who was arrested in Pakistan in 2003, was transferred to Guantanamo in 2006. He has taken responsibility for the Sept. 11 attacks that killed almost 3,000 people at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and in a plane crash in Pennsylvania.
