What interventionist policy led to the attack on 9/11?

Our military presence in Saudi Arabia, sanctions against Iraq, and support for Israel. Bin Laden and Al Qaeda were pretty explicit about the motivation behind the attack.

The problem with radical islam is that they are like Dem/liberals with weapons. If we weren't ever in Saudi, they would find some other excuse. We could be entirely within our borders and they would use the excuse of our women running around without bedsheets covering their bodies. Or that we let women drive cars. Or we eat bacon. Or who knows what.
