How US covered up Saudi role in 9/11

How about a commission of inquiry on the Iraq War? With a jail term for GW?

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.

That’s quite an understatement.

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.

Case agents I’ve interviewed at the Joint Terrorism Task Forces in Washington and San Diego, the forward operating base for some of the Saudi hijackers, as well as detectives at the Fairfax County (Va.) Police Department who also investigated several 9/11 leads, say virtually every road led back to the Saudi Embassy in Washington, as well as the Saudi Consulate in Los Angeles.

2. With shale oil, it should be possible to expose the Saudis

 

Anyway, it's already too late: the Saudis have financed the monster of radicalism that will engulf them. ISIS running the Saudi oil fields: things will get worse before they get better.

4. Obama is a fool!!

I supported an investigation into the Saudis after seeing all those "W" pics of him with the King. Knew something was up when everyone said the Bin Laden family was the only aircraft given permission to leave the US after the attacks.
I"'m pissed at Obama because he made the statement after he was elected that "we must move forward and not dwell on the past". We knew then no criminal action would be taken against "W" and his neocons. Same thing happened with the banksters after they brought the country's economy down. No one went to jail. Obama didn't want to piss his big money donors off. Now we got Hillary. You better wake up people it's way past time ...
Bernie is our best bet to correct this shit!!

3. One of the issues here is that for the House of Saud, there is no real boundary...

 

...between their public roles at the helm of the Saudi state and the private activities of its estimated 15,000 members.

Consider the fact that many members of the House of Saud are extremely wealthy businessmen themselves, and the only other business owners that have any significant wealth are personally connected to the House of Saud themselves.

However, the thousands of wealthy Saudi royals and other wealthy Saudis are far from unified in their priorities, so what you end up having is a multitude of different private foreign policies being financed by different individuals or factions within the Saudi business elite.

If I had to guess, I would say that the 9/11 hijackers were funded and assisted by certain individuals within this Saudi business elite, as part of a covert foreign policy operation undertaken by wealthy Saudis who were particularly anti-American/anti-Western.

Just my opinion, YMMV.

Get a hold of the recent Frontline doc on the hidden Saudi Arabia -- trouble ahead for them, and one might conclude, for the US as well...

7. Innocence until proven guilty?

I fully agree that an investigation should take place, an open and fully transparent investigation. We are still (supposedly) a nation of laws.

8. Even in flagrante delicto, people are technically innocent until sentenced :)

 

Doesn't change much the fact the hand is visibly in the cookie jar

20. Who would YOU have head up the investigation, seeing as the"9-11 Omission, ooops, I mean Commission"

The 9/11 Commissioners concluded that officials from the Pentagon lied to the Commission, and considered recommending criminal charges for such false statements

The Co-Chair said “I don’t believe for a minute we got everything right”, that the Commission was set up to fail, that people should keep asking questions about 9/11, and that the 9/11 debate should continue..."

The 9/11 Commission chair said the Commission was “set up to fail”, and

The Commission’s co-chairs said that the CIA (and likely the White House) “obstructed our investigation”, and


9/11 Commissioner Max Cleland resigned from the Commission, stating: “It is a national scandal”; “This investigation is now compromised”; and “One of these days we will have to get the full story because the 9-11 issue is so important to America. But this White House wants to cover it up”. When asked in 2009 if he thought there should be another 9/11 commission, Cleland responded: “There should be about fifteen 9/11 commissions”, and


The Senior Counsel to the 9/11 Commission (John Farmer) – who led the 9/11 staff’s inquiry – said “At some level of the government, at some point in time…there was an agreement not to tell the truth about what happened“. He also said “I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described …. The tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years…. This is not spin. This is not true.”

Don't forget that Saudi Prince Bandar's nickname was "Bandar Bush" because he spent so much time with the Bush Family...

21. Dennis Kucinich would be my choice but

...it should not be my choice. Max Cleland would make a good adviser on how to proceed with the reopening of a 9-11 investigation and the powers of it's commisioners. Who those investigators should be I am in no position and far too uninformed to say.

The Republicans have hidden the truth of the 9/11 attack from the people of the United States.

13. If you call for ANY investigation, you are considered a conspiracy theorist on DU and you are to

 

report to the Creative Speculation dungeon because only the OFFICIAL STORY of 9/11 is accepted at DU.
