Skip to comments.Too Bad: Saudis angry with U.S. (can we talk 9/11 now)

If there is a country Saudi Arabia and Iran despise more than Israel, its each other. When it comes to Syria, Irans most prominent ally, the prospect of removing Bashar al-Assad has a pavlovian effect on the Saudis.
Putin beat Barack Obama and John Kerry like a couple of drums. While Obama saw an opportunity to spin a resounding defeat into an opportunity to back down under the guise of a diplomatic stalemate as the preferred option, there were consequences. One of those consequences involves Saudi Arabias anger with the U.S. for not dealing with Assad.
Consequences arent necessarily good or bad; they just are.
Speaking of consequences, Saudi Arabia didnt face nearly enough of them for its role in 9/11
Despite the Syrian rebels connection to al-Qeada and despite evidence that the Chemical weapons attack was perpetuated by those rebels, Republican Senators like John McCain (RINO-AZ), Bob Corker (RINO-TN), and Lindsey Graham (RINO-SC) as well as Republican congressmen like Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI) and Peter King (R-NY) wanted to attack Assad.
While fighting against forces that are loyal to Iran may seem noble, consider that the Christians in Syria have been choosing Assad.
Also consider that the Bush administration let the Saudis off the hook after 9/11. Based on that, why would we side with them on anything until true justice is served relative to 9/11?

Seize the oilfields and squeeze ‘em.
We should’ve been drilling in the US against the wishes of the powerfully destructive EPA and all the econuts and left the Saudis alone decades ago.
I stand will Israel.
“And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing; And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse.”
We paid for his education, we order him to bomb Syria and he blows us off. The outrage!!
Shoebat’s claim to have bombed Bank Leumi in Bethlehem is rejected by members of his family who still live in the area, and Bank Leumi says it has no record of such an attack ever taking place. His relatives, members of the Shoebat family, are mystified by the notion of “Walid Shoebat” being an assumed name. And the Walid Shoebat Foundation’s working process is less than transparent, with Shoebat’s claim that it is registered as a charity in the state of Pennsylvania being denied by the Pennsylvania State Attorney’s Office. Shoebat’s claim to have been a terrorist rests on his account of the purported bombing of Bank Leumi. But after checking its files, the bank said it had no record of an attack on its Bethlehem branch anywhere in the relevant 1977-79 period. Shoebat told The Jerusalem Post that this could be because the bank building was robustly protected with steel and that the attack may have caused little damage. Asked whether word of the bombing made the news at the time, he said, “I don’t know. I didn’t read the papers because I was in hiding for the next three days.” (In 2004, he had told Britain’s Sunday Telegraph: “I was terribly relieved when I heard on the news later that evening that no one had been hurt or killed by my bomb.”) Shoebat could not immediately recall the year, or even the time of year, of the purported bombing when talking to the Post by phone from the US. After wavering, he finally settled for the summer of 1977.

Saudis has bombed WTC, Saddam (Saudis’ enemy) was bombed.
Good to see you again.
Nice to see you, Patriot, too!
More like John Bonham on "Moby Dick".
Bush failures include coddling the Saudis, pushing for Amnesty, etc. But his greatest shortcoming was becoming unpopular enough to usher in Barack Hussein.
He beat Obama worse than the LAPD beat Rodney King.
Golly! He sounds like another Norma Khouri.
Thanks for the details SCiv. Good catch.
