I'm quoting from a post of mine on another thread but didn't see this story up yet and thought it deserved it's own thread.
Now it seems that Bob Graham and Bob Kerrey of the 9/11 Commission are just now, nearly 11 years out from the event, saying that they believe Saudi
Arabia was involved.
Two former Senators who led inquiries into the 9/11 attacks have issued sworn statements that they believe the government of Saudi Arabia, a key
U.S. ally in the fight on terrorism, may have played a role in the terror attacks ten years ago. "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," said former Senator Bob Graham, a
Florida Democrat, in an affidavit filed as part of a lawsuit brought against the Saudi government by families of Sept. 11 victims and others.
Graham led a 2002 Congressional probe of the attacks. 9/11 Anniversary: Airports, Amtrak Prep Watch Video Bob Kerrey, a Nebraska Democrat who served
on the 9/11 Commission, said in a separate affidavit that "significant questions remain unanswered" about the role of Saudi institutions. "Evidence
relating to the plausible involvement of possible Saudi government agents in the September 11th attacks has never been fully pursued."
Never been fully pursued? May have played a role? Seriously? Everyone has known that most of the purported hijackers were from Saudi Arabia and they
are just bringing this up now? And "never been fully pursued" is a way of saying that for something that was supposed to be as conclusive as the 9/11
report there were things that they just didn't bother to investigate.
and yet this current conviction that Saudi Arabia was involved is contradicted by the Commission Report which
The commission also concluded 15 of the 19 hijackers who carried out the attacks were from Saudi Arabia, but found no evidence the government of
Saudi Arabia conspired in the attacks, or that it funded the attackers.
Which is it? And if they were so convinced that they are bringing it up now why did they not mention it as a possibility at the time of the
investigations and report?
To be fair it was in response to the Saudi's saying that they were exonerated to which one of the Bob's replied:
Sen. Kerrey's affidavit said it was "incorrect" for the Saudis to claim that the 9/11 Commission had "exonerated" them. "Stated simply, the 9/11
Commission did not have the time, opportunity or resources to pursue all potentially relevant evidence on that important question, and the American
public deserves a more comprehensive inquiry into the issue," wrote Kerrey.
Yes, we do deserve a more comprehensive inquiry. Before sending us to war in 2 countries they should have allocated the resources to "pursue all
potentially relevant evidence."
The affidavits are part of a multibillion-dollar lawsuit that has been working its way through the federal courts since 2002. Though the U.S. Justice
Department has joined the Saudis in trying to have lawsuits against the Saudis thrown out of court
That's even worse! 2 Senators and Omission members are convinced the Saudis are involved but the Justice Department wants to have the suits thrown
Yet more proof of the fact that we need a true independent investigation.
