A Truth Journal: September 11th, Terrorism 13 Years Later: What Have The Saudis Done To Prevent Another?: From Denny:  While the somber ceremonies at the White House and across the nation remember the horrific terrorism of the day now known as "9/11" perhaps it's time to take a penetrating look at the center of this terrorism:  Saudi Arabia and the Arab League.  For the past 13 years it's astounding to note that neither the U. S. government or the world media have taken Saudi Arabia and other Arab League nations to task for fomenting and financing this global terrorism.

Saudi Arabia in particular, as well as their neighbors, have consistently offered excuses and deflected criticism for the last 13 years, claiming no real responsibility cultural, politically or religiously.  It is in their national self-interest to stomp out terrorism yet they continue to finance and arm these marauding groups like ISIL and al-Qaeda.  The Saudis are notorious for making grandiose promises they never keep.  The Saudis are well versed in telling the West what we want to hear yet never - ever - deliver substantially...

President Obama Address To The Nation: Destruction of ISIL With Global Coalition

From Denny:  In the next few days a lot of my fellow media are going to dissect - and seriously distort - what this President said here tonight.  Here it is in its entirety, unedited, as released from the White House.  Too much of what our government does or doesn't do gets lost in meaningless debate over skewed opinions rather than the facts on all the talk shows. 

Not everyone has the time to sit down and watch the President's speech to the nation late at night when our brains are too tired to take it all in.  Which is why I've taken to putting up the various speeches, statements, executive orders and press briefings' transcripts so the public can easily view the raging debates from the beginning before the distortions start their rumor mills' journey to grab a hold of people's emotions.

Here, the President finally outlines his four part strategy for which he has been so soundly criticized as not having formulated soon enough.  Like lots of people have been mentioning, "Hey, if he doesn't have a strategy yet you sure don't announce it to the press you don't have one.  That misstep started a firestorm.  Tell everyone you are in the process of finalizing said strategy as you create a coalition of partners in this terrorism fight."

Well, this President never was adept at political or visual optics.  At least he and his team finally have nailed down some clarity on this ISIL issue so the nation and the global community know what to do next.  This speech is a good update on what other nations are doing as their part in this coalition.  I chose to bold the text that was most significant.  Take a look at the speech:
