Seems to make sense, doesn't it? 15 of the 21 9-11 hijackers were Saudis.

Right now, most of the "insurgents" fighting in Iraq are Saudi:

An NBC News analysis of hundreds of foreign fighters who died in Iraq over the last two years reveals that a majority came from the same country as most of the 9/11 hijackers — Saudi Arabia.


The NBC News analysis of Web site postings found that 55 percent of foreign insurgents came from Saudi Arabia, 13 percent from Syria, 9 percent from North Africa and 3 percent from Europe.


Why do they go?
Saudis captured in Iraq say it's because of pictures on Arab television network Al-Jazeera.
"We saw the Americans massacring the Iraqis," says one Saudi prisoner in Iraq via translation.
Radical Saudi clerics urge them to go to Iraq to kill Americans.
"I read the communique of the 26 clerics," says another Saudi prisoner in Iraq.
