Oil is not the issue for Islamic State terrorists

Jim Tarrant's letter ("Reduce dependence on oil then get out of Middle East," Sept. 29) seems to miss the point entirely. He apparently feels that the Islamic State terrorist attacks being committed throughout the Middle East are due to our “meddling” in their affairs. Hasn't he been listeni…
