After reading a lot of "news sources" about Putin's alleged support of President Bush and Vice President Cheney's accusations against Iraq and Saddam Hussein, I am still left with confusion and questions regarding Russia's position.
1)Does Russia believe that al Queda was working with Saddam Hussein?
2) Does Russia believe that Saddam had anything to do with 9/11?
3)Does Russia believe that Saddam had any means of delivering any type of attack on US soil?
4)WHO does Russia believe is the leader of al Queda?
5)Who is al Queda in Russia's opinion based on their intelligence?
6)Does Russia believe that the Mossad had anything to do with 9/11?
7)Since Russia has such good intelligence regarding what is going on with enemies of AMERICA, does Russia believe that the Israeli Mossad had/has anything to do with 9/11 or planning terrrorist attacks against AMERICANS or any other civilian or military folks in AMERICA or around the world?
Can Russia give us these answers straight forward without the 1984 Newspeak that we are receiving from everyone else? If not, why not?
Finally, I would like to say thank you to President Putin for his attempts to warn our President (information that might have saved lives of AMERICANS). It seems that every time our two nations seem to be developing a friendship, something occurs that makes us appear to be at each other's throats. There is NO reason why our two nations can not live in peace as friends and brothers and sisters in the humankind family.
Thanks in advance for your response. I come to you with these questions because I am so frustrated with not knowing the truths and the constant twisting of facts and offerings of allusions and innuendos as reasons for the deaths of innocent peoples (including our AMERICAN soldiers).
My best to your people,
