Sixteen years after the start of this war, we still hear Mr. Obama and John McCain and Mitt Romney and the British Prime Minister and the rest of them teling their electorates that we're at war because they hate women in the work place and they hate elections and liberties....
They're at war with us because of what our government does, not the way we live at home. As long as we are not adult enough to accept that... it certainly means that we ought to know that our policies are having an immense cost.
Host: What policies?
Surely our support for the Saudi Police state, our presence on the Arab peninsula, in Iraq, in Yemen, in Afghanistan, our unqualified support for Israel. The intersting thing sir is that these were all outlined by bin Laden in his declaration of war in 1996. Our political leaders in both parties have consistently told Americans in essence, forget what our enemy is saying, we know better what they're thinking than they do. So we're in this position that we believe that they're all madmen and there's only a limited number of them that we can kill one at a time.
Host: Would you change our policy with Israel and Saudi?
We can't sir, we can't do either one. The Israeli lobby controls our politics and the Saudi Arabians controls the most important reserves of oil. The United States government is like Gulliver, it's strapped to the ground.... We're stuck in the middle east and we'll have to keep taking the pounding we've been taking....
Because we've taken no cognizance of [our enemies' motivation], we've given the next generation away to the Islamists. We've made no dent in the appeal of people who want to get us out of their neighborhood...
You don't have to change your policies. If you want to support the Israelis [that's fine].. But we ought not to believe that the enemy is not inspired by that...
