Friedman write, “Al Qaeda was not motivated by hatred of the United States, American popular culture, or American democracy.  Its focus, instead, was on the Islamic world and its governments. The United States… had assumed a position as guarantor of existing regimes in the Islamic world.”

9/11 was… “not meant to sent a message to the United States.  The primary audience was the Islamic world.  Bin Laden viewed the United States as an actor that could be manipulated into behaving as Al Qaeda wanted.”
