New questions raised about U.S.-Saudi relationship

For more than a decade now, 28 pages in a congressional report about the 9/11 attacks have been entirely excised.

By several accounts — including statements by two former Senators who sat on the 9/11 commission — the sealed pages point the finger at America’s close friend and ally in the war on terror, Saudi Arabia.

Saudi has consistently denied any advance knowledge of, or connection to the hijackers, but some information in the 28 pages has already leaked.

According to multiple reports here, the FBI and CIA suggest Saudi Arabia provided at least indirect support and funding for the attackers.

And the report isn’t talking about the usual “wealthy Saudi sympathizers,” we so often hear about. No, the pages reportedly describe consular and financial support by officials of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

    Today on my drive home gasoline was posted at 89.4 cents per litre. In Saudi Arabia’s pursuit to quash the fracking industry, Alberta oil sands Saudi Arabia and the rest of OPEC are giving us cheap oil only to hurt themselves financially only to believe that in the long run we will continue are dependence on them for oil. The fact is the world is not running out of oil. New oil deposits are continually being discovered around the world only to hamper their ability to fund terrorism.

    • Enjoy the cheap prices while they last.

        The price will rise before Spring.

      • It’s the calm before the collapse of the economy – again.

    Not in the least bit surprised that Saudi is involved. What is surprising is that the US keep pretending they are allies. Now that the US doesn’t need their oil they should use Saudi as a target for surplus nuclear weapons

    • Ron MacDonald

      The target should have been Saudi Arabia not Afghanistan.

    • That war may come.

    • We knew the Saudis were involved the day after 9/11 as it was reported Bush allowed the Bin Ladens out of the US who were here for various reasons.

    Yeah I agree Saudi Arabia its been one of the masterminded financially supporter of the terrorist Muslims groups all over the world,19 of the terrorist that destroyed the towers were Saudis.

    Saudi is the mother lode of Wahabbism: supremicist, violent, take-over-the-world attitude. It’s very Koran-based,

    If you choose to rely on the USA public ally/secret enemy two/three faced Dumpsterstan foreign policy as being in common use by most muslim rulers, then the only secret here would involve how many Saudi intelligence agents on the ground in the USA were in on the “real mission” from the start and actively worked to ensure its success.
    One might even surmise that there was an agreement in place that the Saudis were “lead” due to their cultural and linguistic talents. No need to worry about clumsy Americans or their amateur ethnic hires blundering in and ruining a wonderful piece of long term spy craft.

  • We can certainly point our finger of guilt to our Moslem in Chief and his CAIR Cabal in the oval office.
