US foreign policies

Hi all, have a question, hoping for some enlightenment...I've never posted here before but it would appear that the majority of you are fairly rational beings, so I figured you may have an answer :)

Anyways - in a lot of the more liberal editorials etc, there have been accusations that the US is to blame for the WTC attacks because of its past "foreign policies". But the policies in question are rarely mentioned. Besides the obvious one of supporting Israel (which I fully support), what are these policies that have supposedly brought about this attack? It may be that some exist, but personally I feel these columnists are overemphasizing them to the point of ridicule, as if the US should take the sole blame for the attacks. I was arguing today with a friend about what the US response should be, and she again brought up the foreign policies of the US - I asked her to elaborate, give some concrete examples, and she couldn't.
Does anyone here have any insight?
I am willing to be proved wrong, but not with only vague ramblings of foreign policy...
