I turn from politics to report on the Saudi/9-11 situation…….
A few days ago I wrote about a special report that details the Saudi involvement in 9/11 and the deal to try and keep the cover-up in place…..(Read on)……
15 years after the fact the attacks on 9/11 are still making the news. But the “news” has moved from the Congress inaction on the first responders bill to the country that may be at th…
But in case that is not enough for the inquisitive mind….then maybe this will help somewhat……
Obama has gone to Saudi Arabia with his ass in his hands to plead for some favors…….but what will they, the Saudis, want in return?
Following Saudi threats to destabilize the financial system if the US were to enact a Bill that would allow an investigation into Saudi Arabia’s support of September 11 terrorist attacks, many were watching closely how Obama would react. The president made it clear last night when as CNN reports, the White House threatened to veto the bipartisan bill to let families victimized by the 9/11 terrorist attacks sue Saudi Arabia while a GOP senator privately sought to block the measure.
The White House and State Department are bluntly warning lawmakers not to proceed with the legislation due to “fears” it could have dramatic ramifications for the United States and citizens living abroad to retaliatory lawsuits.
He may not have to use his precious veto after all……..
The battle over the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act continues to grow today, with co-sponsor Sen. Lindsey Graham (R – SC) announcing that he’s going to block his own bill, to “make sure that anything we do doesn’t come to bite us.”
It’s unspoken, but the admission is the latest response to Sunday’s threats by Saudi Foreign Minister Abu Jubeir to sell $750 billion in US treasury assets in response to the law, a move which if done rapidly could do massive damage to the US dollar and the American economy in general.
The act would allow victims to sue foreign countries in US courts if those countries are involved in terror attacks on American soil, with Saudi Arabia’s government’s involvement in 9/11 likely to be a major target for such lawsuits. The Saudi leverage over the US economy seems to have derailed the law outright, with the White House also indicating a probable veto of the measure over fears it would “harm taxpayers.”
Go figure! Did you really think that it would turn out any other way? Only a politician would use the “taxpayer” as the scapegoat……classic DC two step.
This Saudi love-fest is getting out of hand….Obama going to Saudi like Oliver asking for more gruel is picture I cannot get out of my head.
Do you still believe there will ever be true transparency?
