Opening the 9-11 can of worms
By Dee McLachlan
I recently wrote an article about the 28 page “distraction.”
Now the mainstream media (MSM) are all over it — with the headlines from the Sydney Morning Herald: “Saudis threatens to sell off $US750b in US assets if Congress passes 9/11 bill.” I quote:
“The Saudi Arabian government has threatened to sell hundreds of billions of dollars worth of American assets should the US Congress pass a bill that could hold the kingdom responsible for any role in the September 11, 2001 attacks.”
If the bill were to pass and be signed by the president — this could clear a path for the September 11 lawsuits to examine any Saudi government involvement in the 9-11 attacks. But the Obama administration has lobbied Congress to block the bill ‘s passage — to side with the Saudis.
It is alleged that the secret 28 pages of the 9/11 Commission Report focus on the role of foreign governments in the plot. Interestingly, CNN reported that Saudi officials asked the U.S. to release the redacted pages in 2003, and that this would have provided them the opportunity to defend themselves against any claims of involvement.
But 15 years on, the families of 9/11 victims are hoping to sue foreign states and financial partners of terrorism.
In February, CNN reported that Secretary of State John Kerry was concerned that passing the legislation could expose the US “to lawsuits and take away our sovereign immunity and create a terrible precedent.”
But former Sen. Bob Graham, the co-chair of the 9/11 congressional inquiry, said, “The Saudis have known what they did in 9/11, and they knew that we knew what they did, at least at the highest levels of the U.S. government.”
This is all about the 28 pages that have been kept secret. The problem for the US government is that this will open the “9-11 can of worms.” Revealing the 28 pages will provide more intelligence as to the next layer of the 9-11 deceit — that the government had knowledge and some hand in killing its own people.
Of course the highest levels of government knew what was going on — and may have conveniently added Saudi involvement as a firewall to protect the real criminals.
The redacted section will probably elaborate on the “fifteen” Saudis who allegedly hijacked four planes. The 28 pages will not explain how the buildings just exploded.
I’m sure this is all a distraction. Or maybe this is a Bush–bin Laden family squabble.
Remember — the Carlyle Group met at the Ritz Carlton Hotel just one day before 9/11 (according to the Washington Post). The Bushes were in meetings with the bin Ladens. George H. W. Bush and Shafiq bin Laden, the brother of Osama, were obviously discussing their Saudi oil money prospects over a sumptuous meal.
