Re: US Report on Saudi Involvement in 9/11 Released

Pardon?

Saudi is currently the 2nd largest supplier, according to http://www.eia.gov/tools/faqs/faq.cfm?id=727&t=6

and the level has been roughly the same since the early '90s.

Even if your argument didn't hinge on the 1st false premise I'm still not sure what you mean. Care to elaborate?
Saudi represents approx. 11% of US oil imports. US oil imports constitute approx. one-third of its total oil consumption. This equates to Saudi oil constituting approx. 4% of US oil consumption.

Fyi, from the link you provided, US imports of Saudi oil have dropped from approx. 1,433 thousand barrels a day in the early 90's to approx. 1,055 barrels a day today. This constitutes an approx. 27% decrease in US imports of Saudi oil over that time period, which doesn't seem quite the same as "roughly the same". In fact, US oil imports in 2005 represented approx. 60% of its consumption, whereas today those imports constitute approx. a third of its consumption.
