This week we discuss the US government’s threat to de-classify 28 pages of the 9/11 report, which may contain evidence of Saudi involvemenet. Why has this story suddenly reappeared again? We also cover how Ted Cruz was able to win the Colorado primary without a single vote being cast by the public.
Our theory regarding is that Saudi Arabia may have expressed an interest in trading its’ oil in a currency other than the US dollar, which would undermine the petrodollar system. If you dig into this topic, you may notice a pattern of countries who do this being invaded or sanctioned…
But did Saudi Arabia actually play a role in the 9/11 attacks?
Probably, yes. The Saudis have threated to sell off $750 billion in US assets if the bill to declassify the 28 pages passes. It is unlikley they could or would actually carry out that threat, but the fact they would even make it demostrates they have something to hide.
According to the 9/11 Comission Report:
“Saudi Arabia has long been considered the primary source of Al Qaeda funding, but we have found no evidence that the Saudi government as an institution or senior Saudi officials individually funded the organization,”
Mighty suspiscious wording there. The emphasis on “as an institution” and “senior” officials suggests that individuals within the Saudi government may, in fact, have been involved.
It is a well known fact that Saudi Arabia is the heart of the Wahabbist movement, the puritanical branch of Sunni Islam that groups like Al Qaeda and ISIS adhere to. They practice harsh and ultra-orthodox form of Sharia (Islamic law), routinely sentancing criminals to public lashings and beheadings.
It is also well known that wealthy Saudi individuals and charitible organzations are funding terrorist groups and organizations affiliated with them all over the world. “The Kingdom” is in fact, the largest state sponsor in the world. But for decades the US government has allowed this to go unpunished.
Will the 28 pages ever see the light of day? Only one thing is certain; animosity and distrust in America toward the Saudis has never been higher. This issue is one of the few things that has actually brought republicans and democrats together. The 28 pages are part of the public consciousness now, this issue is not going to just disappear. It may not happen for decades, but someday we may get a new Edward Snowden who follows his conscience and leaks to documents- and we’ll be right there to cover it when it does.
