Let me see if I have this straight…

The majority of 9/11 terrorists were Saudis. The shooter in Pensacola was a Saudi. His Saudi friends watched and filmed the incident.

Yet we invaded Iraq, destroyed Afghanistan and betrayed the Kurds while continuing to arm the Saudi kingdom and sending our troops to help protect their oil fields.
