The Thomas More Law Center’s Richard Thompson posted the following on The President’s Blog:
Saudi Arabia has threatened the United States that it will sell off hundreds of billions of dollars worth of American assets if Congress passes a bill that would allow families of the 9/11 victims to hold Saudi Arabia legally responsible for their role in the 9/11 attacks.
The Saudi threat is economic extortion.
Our response should be swift and clear — “Go to Hell.”
Instead, the Obama administration is lobbying Congress to block passage of the bill.
It’s time that the American people know the full story of Saudi Arabia’s complicity in the 9/ 11 attacks – the most horrendous surprise attack in American history.
It’s time that the American people know exactly what our government did to protect Saudi officials residing in America from FBI investigations. The families of the 9/11 victims have a right to know. See New York Times article here.
It’s time the American people know how our own government intentionally covered up Saudi Arabia’s role in the 9/11 attack. See New York Post article.
Joint Terrorism Task forces say virtually every road leads back to the Saudi Embassy in Washington as well as the Saudi Consulate in Los Angeles.
Yet, time and again terrorism investigators were called off.
As a first step the American government should declassify the 28 pages of the 838-page congressional report on the 9/11 attacks.
According to recent news articles, some leaked information reveals:
- A flurry of pre-9/11 phone calls between one of the hijacker’s Saudi handlers in San Diego and the Saudi Embassy.
- The transfer of $130,000 from Prince Bandar, the then Saudi ambassador’s, family checking account to another hijacker’s Saudi handlers in San Diego.
- Days after 9/11, the FBI evacuated dozens of Saudi officials from multiple cities, including at least one of Osama bin Laden’s family members who was on the terror watch list.
- According to FBI agent Mark Rossini, “The FBI was thwarted from interviewing the Saudis we wanted to interview by the White House.”
