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

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.
11% means that the US does get oil from Saudi, no? Your claim was that the US doesn't get its oil from Saudi.

That the US now gets less oil from Saudi isn't related to the state of affairs at the time of the Sept 11 attacks.

At the time of the attacks the US was getting oil from Saudi.
