    Default Saudi Arabia Warns of Economic Fallout if Congress Passes 9/11 Bill

    Saudi Arabia Warns of Economic Fallout if Congress Passes 9/11 Bill

    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/16/wo...bill.html?_r=0

    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.


    Adel al-Jubeir, the Saudi foreign minister, delivered the kingdom’s message personally last month during a trip to Washington, telling lawmakers that Saudi Arabia would be forced to sell up to $750 billion in treasury securities and other assets in the United States before they could be in danger of being frozen by American courts.

    We know what this is about don't we Strappy?There's been talk of late about releasing the 28 pages of classified material about 9/11 implicating the Saudi's involvement.As far as I'am concerned,the 28 pages will be released at the same time that the CIA releases Lee Harvey Oswald's CIA personnel file.Let's recap;

    Why were Bin Laden's siblings rushed out of the country after 9/11? Not to protect them from popular wrath,safe houses would have done that.It was to put them out of reach of U.S. Investigators.Who 'FUNDS' Al-Qaeda in Yemen?Who 'FUNDS' Isis in the Middle East?Why can we bomb Isis oil fields but 'NOT' get at Isis 'BANK MONEY TRANSFERS'.And how did they get 'CONTROL' of those oil fields in the first place,with Slingshots?

    It seems clear that Gulf State Saudi Arabian Princelings are 'FINANCING' and 'BRAIN-CHILDING a lot of this,that they are 'PROTECTED' by their Families,and that those in turn are 'PROTECTED' by Western Governments.Our Prize,Oil Price Stability.

    But there's more to the relationship between the U.S. and the Al-Saud then oil.More of it has to do with what John Perkins called the Saudi Money Laundering Scheme.Instead of allowing the Al-Saud to pile up gigantic amounts of Foreign Exchange,the Al-Saud were encouraged to 'RECYCLE' their oil revenues by spending the Money on 'U.S. BUSINESS'.Besides Infrastructure the 'ARMS DEALS' are a big part of this.

    Bush,Cheney,Rumsfeld,Obama,and all their 'ASSOCIATED ENTERPRISES' have 'RAKED IN' almost $1.5 Billion from the Al-Saud over the years.But not to be outdone,the Clinton's are doing their best to 'CATCH UP' and even concealed some of the Money with 'FRAUDULENT' IRS Foundation Filings.By the way,if Hillary wins,we'll 'NEVER' see those Pages!!

    They're all 'CONCERNED' because the thrust of the article indicates that a lot of this will 'STOP' if Saudi Arabia is Sanctioned in any way.World Markets would be Disrupted if they 'DUMPED' their Treasuries and the Dollar would stop being the World Reserve Currency.They are all Dishonest Whack-Jobs so the Possibility is all to 'REAL'.

    IMO Saudi Arabia is as evil as Iran is.. They practice the strictest form of Islam .. Amazing though as they leave the Kingdom they frequently spend their time in strip clubs and casinos.
    I do look forward to seeing our government releasing the so called 28 pages so we can put it behind us.. Another reason I have no love for the Saudi's is the fact that they have a EMPTY tent city that could house as many as three million refugees and thus far have refused to help..
    Again the Saudi's are evil.. It is time the world knew the truth..

    Thing here is, what does Saudi Arabia gain from 911, if they really wanted to hurt the US they would have just sold off all their Treasury Securities and other American assets. The real people behind 911 live to the West, they are the ones who gain the most....

    Then why are they so afraid of the release of these documents?
    If there was no involvement then why are they threatening to financially cripple our country?

    Mossad? There are theories out there proclaiming the Saudi's were 'PATSIES'.Oil prices were $20 a barrel in 2000,oil is the main source of $ for the Saudi economy.After 9/11 it 'SKY-ROCKETED' Hmmm.....

    That is the million dollar question, why, one, me and you differ on how those towers fell that day and IMO the Saudis don't have the Intelligence agency to pull it off, beside if they wanted to hurt the US they could easily cripple us financially.

    And here's a article on the release of the report, Bob Graham, and it looks as though there are a lot more than 28 pages that are classified, and this article explains why release them now Bob, it give perhaps the reason???

    Bob Graham and the Missing 9/11 Report Pages - 911Truth.Org

    "To begin with, Graham never calls for release of other documents collected by the government’s 9/11 investigators, most of which are still held secret. That includes the majority of 9/11 Commission documents, of which only a fraction have been released—with much of the content redacted. The release of Commission documents is hindered by claims that they are exempt from the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) because they are congressional records. Nonetheless, the public deserves to see documents that might answer critical questions.'

    "In late 2013, the Saudi government announced that King Abdullah was very ill and, in late 2014, his death was said to be imminent. At the same time, the Saudis began forging a new strategic relationship with China, leaving people to wonder if the U.S. was “losing Saudi Arabia to China.” That was when Graham really turned up the heat. He joined a coalition of U.S. congressmen who began resurrecting the issue of the 28 pages with gusto and they began to get a lot of attention from the mainstream media.

    The demise of Abdullah ignited conflict among factions within the Saudi power structure. The Saudi king died in late January 2015 and Graham’s new calls for release of the redacted section became increasingly well covered as the new king, Salman, took office. The calls for what Graham says is evidence that Saudi Arabia financed the attacks continue to this day as King Salman demonstrates an as yet unclear position toward the United States.

    Overall, there appears to be a correlation between times when Saudi support for the U.S. is perceived as being threatened and times when the media publicizes possible Saudi connections to 9/11. With the rise of King Salman and the growing Chinese-Saudi relationship, new connections have been reported as coming from the imprisoned convict Zacarias Moussaoui as well as through claims about an FBI cover-up of a Saudi family in Sarasota.

    Americans should be interested in the release of any information that sheds light on the crimes of 9/11. However, it should always be remembered that Saudi oil is the single most important resource related to U.S. economic stability. Continual U.S. control of the government that holds that resource is, therefore, paramount. Bob Graham and the media may forget about the missing 28 pages if and when King Salman is sufficiently cowed to U.S. interests and China becomes less threatening as a Saudi strategic partner. But one thing is certain—if the only mainstream coverage of 9/11 questions continues to center on implications of Saudi financing of the attacks, the truth about what really happened will remain solely a matter of independent inquiry."
