If this isn't the biggest story going right now, I don't know what is. This is no longer a conspiracy so this might not be the right forum.

• Politico Sept. 14: ‘We Misled You’: How the Saudis Are Coming Clean on Funding Terrorism

On my most recent trip to Saudi Arabia, I was greeted with a startling confession. In the past, when we raised the issue of funding Islamic extremists with the Saudis, all we got were denials. This time, in the course of meetings with King Salman, Crown Prince Nayef, Deputy Crown Mohammad Bin Salman and several ministers, one top Saudi official admitted to me, “We misled you.” He explained that Saudi support for Islamic extremism started in the early 1960s as a counter to Nasserism—the socialist political ideology that came out of the thinking of Egypt’s Gamal Abdel Nasser—which threatened Saudi Arabia and led to war between the two countries along the Yemen border. This tactic allowed them to successfully contain Nasserism, and the Saudis concluded that Islamism could be a powerful tool with broader utility. ...


It gets better though!


But over time, the Saudis say, their support for extremism turned on them, metastasizing into a serious threat to the Kingdom and to the West. They had created a monster that had begun to devour them. “We did not own up to it after 9/11 because we feared you would abandon or treat us as the enemy,” the Saudi senior official conceded. “And we were in denial.”


If heads don't roll for this, the United States has become ballsless.

I call red-herring to deflect from other key players. Everyone knows Saudi's hands were all over it, it's Tel Aviv and Washington that this "admission" is meant to protect.

To me it's obvious...

I doubt of any ramifications of this. We knew all along and hid the evidence from the commission report. If they learned or were taught in engaging this type of warfare it was from us the US.

Look at our last enemies and at one time they were friends. Take from it what youd like.
Osama Bin Laden, Sadam Hussein, Gaddafi, ISIS... The list goes on.

This isn't really "New" news, just a confirmation of what many here have been saying for years...

I am not sure how this protects Washington, because I'm f**king fuming right now thinking about how the 911 committee brushed the Saudi connection under the rug despite the intel suggesting otherwise.

Bush/Clinton dynasties have received millions from these muslim terrorists and socialized with them as close friends for decades.

But not Trump.

ISIS should be mentioned here. How long will it take the US to admit their creature got out of control. Or was it planned that way?

That's actually a really interesting article.
It speaks a lot more on Saudis plans for the future of their own country and of terrorism and islamism..
Kind of seems weirdly promising.

And now I can't read my ads on the the right side of ATS because they are in arabic.
LOL

but it doesn't even seem to make sense..

Saudi Arabia Warns of Economic Fallout if Congress Passes 9/11 Bill
April 2016 New York Times



The Senate bill is intended to make clear that the immunity given to foreign nations under the law should not apply in cases where nations are found culpable for terrorist attacks that kill Americans on United States soil. If the bill were to pass both houses of Congress and be signed by the president, it could clear a path for the role of the Saudi government to be examined in the Sept. 11 lawsuits.



Something weird going on behind the scenes between April and now.. Something changed. I can't follow the script.. It's becoming so convoluted

Thanks for thread. This is a big deal.

Finally! Took awhile. But at least it's a big step in the right direction. "Hi, I'm Saudi Arabia and I have a problem with my Muslim extremists."

Younger generation of leaders.


The new Saudi leadership, in other words, appears to be downgrading ideology in favor of modernization. In fact, one senior Saudi official explicitly said that the Kingdom was pursuing a “revolution under the cover of modernization”—meaning that modernization was now the driver of Saudi policy.
....
A true change in Saudi Arabia’s policy of supporting Islamist extremists would be a turning point in the effort to defeat them. Given the kingdom’s role, Saudi success can provide a model for the rest of the Sunni Arab and Islamic world on how to pursue reform and succeed. That could, in turn, help launch the reformation that is so badly needed. The region and the world have a stake in Saudi success, and should do what we can to encourage and support them on this new path.

The only reason Obama will veto the measure to sue The sauidi's is because the same law can be used to sue the US for its support of groups that try and did topple governments.

Brushed under the rug is right, along with many, many other facts.

My question is why, and who the info dealers and keepers think they're protecting, or what they're protecting. The whole thing is a pandora's box and tbh, and i cant believe im saying this, but there may be some type of validity in keeping the info locked up or drip feeding certain info out. Controlled changes to Societal paradigms and psychology are fast at work these days.

The tail-end of the article reads like a paper thin PR ploy to flush out radical elements who are challenging the House of Saud and an excuse to start moving their oil investments to insulate themselves. I will believe the Saudis are turning a new leaf when I see them charge Prince Bandar bin Sultan for directly funding the 911 terrorists.



Until then they have a lot to answer for.

Agreed. This whole issue of the Saudi's role in 9/11 has been heavily promoted this year and it seems obvious to me that it's an engineered distraction.

The REAL story would further come to light if we had a few other questions answered honestly. Such as:

What is Saudi Arabia getting in return for playing a patsy?

EXACTLY my thoughts.

Maybe it was planned that way the entire time as 17 of the 19 guys were Saudi? Wouldn't you give them different passports or something? haha..

Well, Maybe after Syria falls the west will start phasing out it's support of terrorist groups. Maybe Saudi Arabia gets the US on Iran's back.. Israel Saudi Arabia and the US want Iran out.. So maybe it has something to do with that, because after Syria it's Iran..

I don't know what price is good enough to associate yourselves with terrorism and even 9/11.. Must be something you've wanted for a LONG time..

lol at that one


And it doesn't help to get pressure from Congress (link provided by Reverbs above).

Prince Bandar bin Sultan.... it's all in the family over there, so I won't expect much, not even "palace arrest", although that would be nice. He already was let go of his govt work, so, yeah, let him stay in his palace, prevent him from any power in the family.

He quit of his own accord, right? Probably saw the writing on the wall. His house in the US cost $135 million www.nytimes.com... makes me wonder how much more posh his palace is in Saudi Arabia. "Palace" arrest would be nothing for this guy- which is sickening.

Yah, easy to blame the proxies... thats what they are for. Loosely defined as "Coalition Forces" in the main stream media, covers for a world of skullduggery and covert Ops.

Those aren't US Pilots in Us Planes dropping US bombs on Yemen, they're Saudis.
