In 2001/2002 we hit Afghanistan and overthrew the Taliban for aiding and abetting Al Qaida and for hosting Osama Bin Laden after the attacks on New York City, the Pentagon and Pennsylvania on September 11th 2001. We then went on to invade Iraq. This Iraq invasion had no constitutional reasoning and in my opinion was wrong.
Going back in time to the first Gulf war of 1990/Jan 1991, Iraq was no tactical, operational or strategic threat to the United States and we had no constitutional reason to liberate Kuwait from Saddam Hussein. This was a Muslim problem not an American problem. Osama Bin Laden offered up his Mujahedeen fighters to Saudi Arabia to liberate Kuwait from the Iraqi forces but the Saudi’s declined his offer. They decided instead to let American and European forces to shed blood in their place not Muslim blood. I was there in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, forward deployed with and supporting fast attack submarines and SEAL units in this endeavor from 1990-1993.
Lets go back to the events after 9/11 2001. After we secured Afghanistan in 2002 and created conditions for free elections in October 2004 we then should have left Afghanistan our mission accomplished as per Article 2, Section 8 of the Constitution. I think after Afghanistan we should have then over thrown the leadership in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia not Iraq. That’s quite a strong statement to make but I justify what I say with this. Lets go forward in time to the present month Decembers 2013.
On December 19th 2013 the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit overturned the 2005 Federal Court decision that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) was exempt from any civil lawsuits arising from the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.
The 9/11 families and insurance companies are now able to continue forward with legal action against the Saudi Kingdom. Why though would the US government protect Saudi Arabia from civil legal actions resulting from 9/11 ? Good question. Perhaps it was because Saudi Arabia not Iraq that is the enemy of the United States but we must be denied this information to protect those decision makers from prosecution who have inflicted so much pain and suffering on the our military forces and our economy by invading Iraq and not addressing the real problem. KSA !
From the intelligence gathered some of which obtained allegedly from the CIA, Saudi Arabia and the Saudi High Commission knowingly provided the terrorist group Al Qaeda with funds and other support, that helped them carry out the 9/11 attacks on New York City and the Pentagon.
It would appear that the leadership of Saudi Arabia is our enemy not the people of Iraq. Iraq and Iran fought an 8 year war without American interference and we should have stayed out of Kuwait too in 1991. It was not our problem but Saudi Arabia made it our problem. We fell into the trap and did not follow the Constitution which tells us not to meddle in the affairs of foreign nations. We just can’t stop being the worlds Police department.
Thomas H. Kean was the Chair and Lee H. Hamilton the Vice Chair of the committee investigating the 9/11 attacks. Former Senators Bob Kerrey (D-Nebraska) and Bob Graham (D- Florida) in December 2012 both voiced their concerns about Saudi involvement in 9/11. They submitted affidavits in this case in 2012, stating that a Saudi government agent, along with other Saudi officials, played a key role during the lead-up to the attacks. You will also recall that all of the hijackers except two came from Saudi Arabia. Imagine that. We save Saudi Arabia’s backside from a potential invasion from Iraq in 1991 and they pay us back by allegedly funding the attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon in 2001. We should listen to our Founding Fathers and stay out of foreign nations squabbles and wars.
Senator Bob Graham, in the New York Times, said “I am convinced that there was a direct line between at least some of the terrorists who carried out the September 11th attacks and the government of Saudi Arabia,” in his affidavit, citing, among other things, the San Diego case of Saudi government Omar al Bayoumi, who provided direct assistance to two of the 9/11 hijackers.
I want the Congress of the United States to now force the release of these censored/classified 28 pages from the Congressional Joint Inquiry. These classified documents reportedly deal with Saudi financing and support for the 9/11 hijackers. They will help the families of 9/11 recover financial damages from the kingdom of Saudi Arabia and let the chips fall where they may in regards to future US relations with this Muslim country that hates Israel.
Saudi Arabia’s involvement in the attacks on our nation on September 11th 2001 would thus explain why they dumped all of their US Treasury bonds the day before the attack on September 10th 2001. This sell off was stopped when on the morning of 9/11 2001 all the phone lines to Wall Street and the Stock Exchange where cut when the second jet hit Tower II.
The Saudi’s, perhaps being complicit in the attack on the United States on 9/11 by backing and funding Al Qaeda would explain why they just lobbied President Obama the Kenyan Muslim to once again try and use our military but this time as Al Quadas’ mercenaries to take out President Assad in Syria. Saudi Arabia in my opinion is the head of the snake and British intelligence services and Iranian intelligence officers were also probably aware of the Saudi involvement in funding the attack on the United States.
We are in a war on terror partly because Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait in 1990 and the Saudi’s did not want Muslim blood shed to fix this problem. The Saudi’s used our boys and girls in our military to be their protector which has now made us the target of Al Qaeda. President Carters weakness in 1979 created these conditions for the original Russian invasion of Afghanistan and thus Al Qaeda was born.
We have no reason to be in Afghanistan, we have no reason to be in Iraq, we have no reason to be in the Sudan, Obama had no Congressional authority when he ordered the tomahawk missile attack on Libya an impeachable offense and we have no reason to buy oil from the Middle East. We have more than enough here in the United States.
We must replace our government on November 4th 2014 with one that is able to follow the Constitution. We must stay out of foreign entanglements unless its a direct threat to us and we must prosecute President Obama for crimes against the US Constitution.
We must stop protecting US – Saudi relations and expose the truth about the Saudi’s involvement in creating a ten year war in the Middle East that cost us trillions of dollars, and one that created a 23 year war on terror since 1990 that has cost us thousands of American lives not to mention the veterans now affected with PTSD and lost limbs etc.
A few days ago the Congress and the Senate repaid veterans who have shed their blood defending our nation by cutting their pensions. The Congress / Senate should be ashamed of themselves. I demand that they release and declassify the 28 pages of Saudi complicity in 9/11, lest they forget that the 4th plane that went down in Pennsylvania was meant for them.
We will remember who voted to cut the pay of the military veteran stuck in the wheelchair, hobbling on the crutches and who hides in his or her house afraid to live life because of the experiences he or she has endured to keep these bastard politicians free and Saudi Arabian government rich and prosperous. God Bless America.
