    for the explanation.

    I think I was reading the diary wrong. I expected there to be a cause and effect between the two halves Devilstower cited as the cause of 9/11. But they weren't cause and effect as much as parallel, though related decisions.

    I think my point holds that even if we had energy indepencdence we still may have challenged the soviet expansion.

    I always reply to diaries too late.

      And you're certainly right about Afghanistan, particularly since Devilstower makes it clear that Carter and Brezhinski made the initial commitment, just that Carter would not have left Afghanistan to the Taliban abd Osama once the Soviets had failed there.
