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 the heart of the attacks….Saudi Arabia.
There is a major story brewing about some of the pages that have taken out of the official report….28 of them to be exact.
It appears that the US may be covering up the extent of Saudi in the attacks of 9/11……not a story that the media is willing to cover….now ask yourself why…..but more on this situation…..
This is from an article in the NY Post….now take it at what it is worth for some think that it is nothing more than a scandal sheet and a rag…..
In its report on the still-censored “28 pages” implicating the Saudi government in 9/11, “60 Minutes” last weekend said the Saudi role in the attacks has been “soft-pedaled” to protect America’s delicate alliance with the oil-rich kingdom.
Actually, the kingdom’s involvement was deliberately covered up at the highest levels of our government. And the coverup goes beyond locking up 28 pages of the Saudi report in a vault in the US Capitol basement. Investigations were throttled. Co-conspirators were let off the hook.

Apparently Obama has been summoned to the Kingdom and the “official” report is that the meeting is about regional security…..sorry I do not buy that…how about you?
Okay let’s say that the official pages are released….then the question would be….”what can the Saudis do to the US?”
I am so glad you asked……
How many times have you heard the mental midgets rant and rave about the debt that the Chinese own and how bad it would be if they decided to act on our debt….how many times?
It is true that the Chinese own a bunch of our debt…..but they are not alone.
Did you know that the Saudis own about $750 billion….. that is billion with a “B”…..?
Okay but what of it?
Saudi Arabia is threatening to sell $750 billion worth of American assets if Congress passes a bill that could lead to it being tried for the Sept. 11 attacks, the New York Times reports. According to RT, the bipartisan bill, which passed the judiciary committee in January, would tweak the 1976 Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, nullifying the immunity granted to some countries when terror attacks in the US are involved. If passed, the bill could allow the families of Sept. 11 victims to bring the Saudi royal family and Saudi charities, who they believe funded the attacks, to court. Saudi Arabia claims it would need to sell its US assets if the bill is passed, lest the US government freeze them. Some economists are skeptical the Saudi government would follow through on the threat, as it would destroy its economy.
The Obama administration, warning it could lead to legal retaliations by other countries, has been trying to stop Congress from passing the bill. It’s a move that’s upsetting some families of Sept. 11 victims. “It’s stunning to think that our government would back the Saudis over its own citizens,” the Times quotes a woman whose husband died in the World Trade Center as saying. Meanwhile, Obama is also deciding whether or not to declassify 28 pages of a 2002 report allegedly containing information tying Saudi officials to the Sept. 11 attacks, Fox News reports. Both Bush and Obama have said those pages would be harmful for national security, but others say the government is trying to hide the involvement of a longtime ally.
The Obama admin is using the usual reason……national security as a reason for the pages to remain classified. So why would the truth be dangerous?
The Senate bill is intended to make clear that the immunity given to foreign nations under the law should not apply in cases where nations are found culpable for terrorist attacks that kill Americans on United States soil. If the bill were to pass both houses of Congress and be signed by the president, it could clear a path for the role of the Saudi government to be examined in the Sept. 11 lawsuits.
Obama administration officials counter that weakening the sovereign immunity provisions would put the American government, along with its citizens and corporations, in legal risk abroad because other nations might retaliate with their own legislation. Secretary of State John Kerry told a Senate panel in February that the bill, in its current form, would “expose the United States of America to lawsuits and take away our sovereign immunity and create a terrible precedent.”
National security……one of those dog whistle slogans like “political correct”…..that conjures up visions of gloom and doom.
So are the Saudis bluffing?……Can the US take that chance?
Now why would you think that Obama has gone to Saudi Arabia…..( I have heard he packed his reliable knee pads)…..
