Something To Hide? – Saudis Threaten Asset Dump If Congress Releases 28 Redacted 9/11 Pages
The leaks about the content within the 28 redacted pages of the 9/11 commission report, or the simple fact that the censored section exists at all notwithstanding, there’s a whole new reason to be suspicious of what is hidden within. The uproar over talk of it being released, the threats being issued by Saudi officials and the concern over financial repercussions levied by the Saudis that would be quite damaging in their nature indicate that there is some fire underneath the thick smoke.
According to CNN, Saudi Arabia is warning that it will sell off hundreds of billions in American assets if they are exposed, supposedly in the name of protecting themselves from financial jeopardy. Such assets would potentially become a target for attachment if the information were available as evidence upon which to build a lawsuit. That may be partially true, but it is the hit the value of such assets would take that is prompting some servants of the establishment elite to have second thoughts, or to at least provide that appearance publicly.
A senior Obama official, when asked if there would be a veto of legislation if it were passed by Congress, replied, “rather than entertain a hypothetical, we believe there needs to be more careful consideration of the potential unintended consequences of its enactment before proceeding with legislation.” They’re willing to weigh national and probably their own personal financial and political interests in perpetuating the cover-up versus the “sure loser” of doing the right thing and exposing Saudi and other wrongdoing. There are a whole host of questions surrounding the fairy tale that was presented as the official determination of what happened in September of 2001. A correction of the record has to start somewhere, the 28 missing pages seems like a great place to start.
The Saudis actually sought the release of the 28 pages of the report, or at least presented that position publicly, back in 2003. At that time it was their friends the Bush family that objected, citing a weak and disputed claim of its release having a negative impact on the nation’s ability to gather intelligence. It’s quite possible that George W. Bush allowed his allies in the Saudi royal family, whom he was fond of holding hands with as they strolled about his Crawford ranch, to pretend to be in favor of the release as a means of denial, assured that Bush had their back and would use a false national security tack to block any release.
Hussein Obama and John Kerry have both been very cozy with the Iranians lately. Is this still more accommodation to them, an overt move to vilify the Saudis, which would be welcomed as the ultimate PR strike against their bitter enemy? Is it an opportunity for Hussein Obama to play the Saudis and Iranians, and then provide the Saudis with the continuation of the protection they already had and have it interpreted as a gesture of assistance and support? Are we actually willing to credit that level of cunning to the pink line Obama regime?
The bill is sponsored by the number two leadership for both the Senate Republicans and Democrats, John Cornyn (R-TX) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY). The Saudis chose not to respond to a CNN request for comment.
