The United States invaded the wrong country when it attacked Iraq. Saudi Arabia, not former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, financed the terrorists and aided and abetted the slaughter of thousands of innocent Americans on 9/11.
We have always known that 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudis. That was just a coincidence, proclaimed Washington. But the evidence old and new is stacking up that Saudi Arabia, at the top levels of government, provided aid for that assault.
The 9/11 Commission reported that while all traffic over the United States was halted in the days following 9/11, six chartered flights with 142 people aboard, mostly Saudis, left the United States with FBI escorts between Sept. 14, 2001 and Sept. 24, 2001. It was reported by The Saint Petersburg Times in 2004 that at least one other flight with three men, perhaps members of the Saudi royal family, were also ushered out of the United States with bodyguards during that period.
It all seems too incredible to be true. It would mean our government has been lying to the American people for well over a decade.
That can’t happen, can it? That would mean that twice in the past half century, back-to-back presidents convinced the nation to fight in an insurgent war that cost of thousands of American lives and hundreds of billions of dollars. It would mean that presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama have acted just as presidents Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon did with regard to fighting wars where the benefactor was America’s military-industrial establishment.
According to Global Research in September 2013, the United States will have spent between $4 and $6 trillion fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government in 2013 reported that roughly 20 percent of the total amount added to the U.S. national debt between 2001 and 2012 was a result of Bush and Obama’s wars. The report added that in 2013 U.S. had already paid $260 billion in interest on the war debt and future interest payments alone could be trillions of dollars.
The war spending was based on lies by the Bush administration about Iraq processing weapons of mass destruction and the strong insinuation that Saddam conspired with al-Qaida on the 9/11 attack. And while millions of Americans still believe this is true, perhaps assuaging their guilt over that war, a 2004 House of Representatives committee found 237 misleading statements about the threat posed by Iraq that were made by Bush and those in his administration, notably Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of State Colin Powell and National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice. In all, the administration was said to have lied in 125 separate appearances, which included 40 speeches, 26 press conferences and briefings, 53 interviews, written statements, and two congressional testimonies.
According to the House committee, at least 61 separate statements “misrepresented Iraq’s ties to al-Qaeda.” In 2006, a separate Senate investigation agreed. In 2009, Cheney admitted, “I do not believe and have never seen any evidence to confirm that [Saddam] was involved in 9/11. We had that reporting for a while, [but] eventually it turned out not to be true.”
Eventually it turned out not to be true? That’s because it was all a pack of lies from the very start told because the real truth is unthinkable. Those in the highest levels of government in Saudi Arabia — America’s staunchest ally in Islam — provided financial and perhaps even logistical aid to al-Qaida in carrying out 9/11.
Lawyers representing the families of the 9/11 victims in a lawsuit against Saudi Arabia announced they have new evidence that agents of that government “directly and knowingly” aided the hijackers. It includes sworn testimony from the 20th hijacker, Zacarias Moussaoui.
Moussaoui, who is serving a life sentence in a maximum-security prison in Florence, Colorado, claims that there was a plot by al-Qaida to shoot down Air Force One and assassinate President Bill Clinton that was assisted by a top Saudi Embassy employee. And he says there were direct dealings between senior Saudi officials and bin Laden. The rants of a crazy man, insists the Saudi embassy in Washington.
Bob Graham, co-chairman of the Joint Congressional Inquiry into 9/11, said he believes “there was a direct line” between some 9/11 terrorists and the government of Saudi Arabia.
Why in the world would two presidents cover up the most horrific attack on American civilians? I can give you two reasons: oil and money. First, Saudi Arabia has the largest reserves of conventional oil in the world, which it can pump at about the same cost as bottled water. Second, Saudi investors hold $250 billion in U.S. Treasuries and another $100 billion in U.S. stocks and bonds.
