WASHINGTON — Saudi Arabia has told the Obama administration and members of Congress that it will sell off hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of American assets held by the kingdom if Congress passes a bill that would allow the Saudi government to be held responsible in American courts for any role in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

The Obama administration has lobbied Congress to block the bill’s passage, according to administration officials and congressional aides from both parties, and the Saudi threats have been the subject of intense discussions in recent weeks between lawmakers and officials from the State Department and the Pentagon. The officials have warned senators of diplomatic and economic fallout from the legislation.
Saudi Arabia Warns of Economic Fallout if Congress Passes 9/11 Bill


I knew immediately when I watched the film "Fahrenheit 911" and I found out that key people from Saudi Aurabia were flown out of the US to keep them from being questioned that the US knew that Saudi Aurabia was involved in 9/11. Did anyone else feel that way?

I wasn't able to find a video clip of this but here's a quote from the script:


The FAA has taken the action to close all of the airports in the United States.

Even grounding the president's father, former President Bush on a flight forced to land in Milwaukee.

Thousands of travelers were stranded, among them Ricky Martin due to appear at tonight's Latin Grammy Awards.

Not even Ricky Martin could fly. But really, who wanted to fly?

No one, except the bin Ladens. We had airplanes pick up Osama bin Laden's family and other Saudis and transport them out of the U.S.

The White House approved planes to pick up the bin Ladens and numerous other Saudis.

At least six private jets and nearly two dozen commercial planes carried the Saudis and bin Ladens out of the U.S. After September 13th.

In all, 142 Saudis, including 24 members of the bin Laden family were allowed to leave the country.

America, the nation that protects, finances and arms her enemies and imprisons her citizens for the smallest of infractions. Love it!

A long Kiss Goodnight was probably closer to the mark than Fahrenheit 911.

Maybe it was the bigger budget, maybe it was Sammy Jackson in the supportive role, either way it far and away outsines the half researched and vaguely lipsticked partisan hackery that was Moore's claim to fame.

When the CIA director said "unfortunately, we don't know how to fake killing 3000 people" everyone should have known they were watching a documentary re-enactment rather than a Hollywood blockbuster.

Then again, I just woke up so maybe my brain is still half porridge.

This is just another reason the US should invest in renewables.


If we didn't need their oil or oil companies we could tell them to F## off.

9/11 is a festering wound that I hope never goes away until the real truth is exposed and people believe the findings of what actually happened.

I believe you're getting at the heart of the matter. I think the following comment from prisonplanet.com hit a home run on the issue:


Washington knows that if the Saudis are revealed as culpable and therefore open to litigation by victims, they in turn would would move into the firing line for victim litigation for all the invasions, bombings, drone strikes and slaughter they are guilty of throughout the World. This added to the destabilisation of the dollar if Saudi sold its more than 10% stake of the US would totally bankrupt the US. Venezuela would look like a stable economy by comparison!

I'm sorry, but what's this nonsense about Congress passing a bill? Paul Ryan can't get the GOP to pass wind, let alone a bill!

Well that and using their resources as leverage to attain impunity for any atrocities they might commit. A sort of bribery.

Last time someone threatened to mess with America and it's finances didn't go well for them.
Do you think that will happen this time? Not f-ing likely.. They will roll over and carry on as normal..

I'd like to know why Obama's blocking it.

I've always believed that our government was in some way complicit. I don't think they planted explosives, or anything akin to that, but I really think they knew about it and probably stood down.

Our government's latest response is only more grist for the mill.

Saudi Arabia has at it's roots Wahhabism which is completely at odds with western values of individual freedoms, including the freedom to NOT practice religion and equal rights for women.

If I review who executed the new laws and ongoing wars in the years following 9/11, even if the House of Saud was complicit in funding individuals who apparently carried out the attacks, it's clear that plans were well refined to the point that the Patriot Act was rolled out 45 days after 9/11 and the coalition of the willing invaded Afghanistan 26 days after 9/11.

Somehow this then morphed into invading Iraq 2 years later and so began the trainwreck that has led to current world events.

The princes and pedophiles that make up the House of Saud and disseminate their ultraconservative, freedom restricting, women oppressing version of Islam are a hindrance to the social evolution of the collective global community and something definitely needs to be done to take the whole cult down, for good.

Congress should now fast track approving the bill.

Brilliant. A concise description of the situation. (I think anyway).

Question:

How would Saudi benefit from 9/11?

Terrorist cells would have their own twisted purpose but why would a country get involved? What was their MO? Surely they would have to have some kind of motivating factor.

Hatred.

If they want to threaten us economically then maybe we need to turn their palaces to ash and seize their oil

That's what you get for thinking, eh?



This actions by the Saudis demonstrate blackmail or extortion on their part. Will the US buckle under? Probably.
