9/11 Link To Saudi Arabia Is Topic Of Redacted Pages In Gov't Report; Congressmen Push For Release
International Business Times ^ | 9 Dec 13 | Jamie Reno

Posted on 12/09/2013 6:21:37 PM PST by LSUfan

Since terrorists attacked the United States on Sept. 11, 2001, victims’ loved ones, injured survivors, and members of the media have all tried without much success to discover the true nature of the relationship between the 19 hijackers – 15 of them Saudi nationals – and the Saudi Arabian government. Many news organizations reported that some of the terrorists were linked to the Saudi royals and that they even may have received financial support from them as well as from several mysterious, moneyed Saudi men living in San Diego.

Saudi Arabia has repeatedly denied any connection, and neither President George W. Bush nor President Obama has been forthcoming on this issue.

But earlier this year, Reps. Walter B. Jones, R-N.C., and Stephen Lynch, D-Mass., were given access to the 28 redacted pages of the Joint Intelligence Committee Inquiry (JICI) of 9/11 issued in late 2002, which have been thought to hold some answers about the Saudi connection to the attack.

"I was absolutely shocked by what I read," Jones told International Business Times.

If 19 Saudis hijacked four Chinese airliners, crashed them into Shanghai, killed over 3,000 Chinese and caused over $2 trillion in economic losses,does anyone think the Chines would have invaded Iraq? Also why are New Jerseyans and New Yorkers paying record high tolls at Hudson river crossings to build the new Freedom Tower? Perhaps our diplomats could have negotiated something beneficial.

Why did Saudi Arabia get a pass?

Because of petroleum and the need to eliminate Saddam Hussein.

Never forget that that governments in the ME are run like a crime family. They never trust one another because each is looking in how to bring down the others.

For outsiders to negotiate what they believe to be the status of an “ally”, really means to allow oneself to be used and abused. An “ally” especially is never trusted.

“We are told NOT TO judge ALL of islam by the actions of thousands of muslim lunatics.”

BUT on the other hand ...

“We are also encouraged TO judge ALL Gun Owners by the actions of a handful of lunatics.”

How is that supposed to work ...?

Yes, our dear friends, the Saudis.

Saudis use Jihadis as their “special forces.”

Sure, but we did not need to invade Saudi. We already have troops in Saudi. We already have ‘cooperation’ with the Saudi’ government.

Do you really think that we didn’t ‘do anything’ in Saudi?

The Saudi student visa program and funnel for passports would have let these men pass through.

I believe they were a collection of various nationalities: Saudi, Yemmeni and Iraqi. Hence the ‘teams.’ Someone also knows the money trail. There’s your payor.

“There was no “need” to get rid of Saddam.”

Bull.

In April of 2011, Saddam Hussein financed the planning meeting in Jakarta, Indonesia, for the hit on the World Trade Towers in NYC. He paid for the travel, meeting rooms, all hotel bills, and food. The purpose for the meeting was a mystery.

The U.S. government knew of the meeting and Saddam’s involvement but didn’t know exactly what it was all about.

In addition, the 19 hijackers were allowed to practice on large jets that are partly buried in the desert of Iraq; these were used by Black September and the PLO for their highjackings during the 1980s and 1990s.

All the above information was publicly available after 9-11. I sent a letter to the WSJ concerning the jets in the desert, and they published it.

Saddam Hussein was a massively disrupting tyrant. He committed genocide not just against his neighboring countries but against his own people. His mistake was in attacking the U.S., a matter of revenge for the shellacking he took in 1900-1901. Arabs can forget almost everything, except humiliation.

The world is a better place without him and his sons.

Yep. This year alone we are importing 800,000 H-1Bs, because American companies can't, just can't find any unemployed American STEM people to hire.

Some large-ish percentage of these H-1Bs are from countries known to be hostile to The American Way.

Some fraction of them are actually pre-placed assassins or saboteurs.

We are putting them inside every key factory, power plant, refinery, water works, and sewage treatment facility in the country.

One Perfect Day everything will collapse at once.

Do be prepared.

Did Saddam have any such leanings before the First Gulf War?

Either we should have never got involved over there, or else once we did, we had no choice but to take Saddam out. We got the worst of both choices with Bush I.

“Did Saddam have any such leanings before the First Gulf War?”

He had jetliners parked in the desert for training terrorists on how to hijack civilian airliners. How’s that a fit for “leanings”?

We’re talking about the Middle East here. The rules are fluid and no one has real allies. Any agreements between Arab states are illusory, as in temporary arrangements. The only sure thing among those nations is a knee-jerk fear of chaos.

The U.S. had a treaty with Kuwait. If they were attacked, we would respond. They weren’t just attacked; they were invaded, pillaged and sacked by Iraqi forces.

The U.S. led a coalition of 40+ nations to remove Saddam’s forces from Kuwait and send them back to the Iraqi heartland. None of the surrounding Arab nations wanted him, Saddam, removed due to a resulting power vacuum in their midst.

We should have never gotten involved in intra-Arab squabbles.

Now THAT is a statement with which I totally agree.

There is a reason historians refer to the Middle East as the “Graveyard of Empires”.

China would have went in and killed everyone in Rihayd and level mecca with bulldozers, then left.
