Get into Saudi Arabia free card

The setup is underway. The media are making much of a claimed spat between the families of the 9/11 victims and the Obama administration; 28 redacted pages of a 9/11 Congressional report allegedly contain details implicating Saudi Arabian nationals in the 9/11 plot.

9/11 families hit Obama for ‘siding with Saudi Arabia,’ want secret report declassified
Over the past week, families of 9/11 victims have criticized President Obama because of reports stating that his administration is lobbying Congress to block a bill that would allow terror victims to sue foreign governments connected to attacks on American soil. The criticism comes as Obama prepares to travel to Riyadh for the fourth time in his presidency.

The sudden change of heart over Saudi involvement is unlikely to be by chance. The Saudi connection was exposed at the time of the attacks by the claim that the planes were hijacked; it was quickly "revealed" that 15 of the 19 hijackers, armed with box-cutters, were Saudi nationals. Furthermore, a number of Saudi nationals were secretly flown out of the country during the total ban on commercial flights in the immediate aftermath of the attacks.

Saudi Arabia may well have been complicit in the 9/11 plot along with Pakistan and perhaps other countries' intelligence services but that doesn't alter the fact that the plot originated within, and was orchestrated by elements of, the US government and establishment - the deep, dark state. Connections between Saudi Arabia and westerners who were in one way or another related to the 9/11 attacks are the real issue here. This sudden demonisation of Saudi Arabia may indicate a falling out with the Al Saud regime and the US may be about to play the "get into Saudi Arabia free card".

Playing the “Get into Saudi Arabia free card” by Kevin Ryan
Recent developments among supporters of the US government’s version of events indicate that they plan to begin blaming Saudi Arabia for the attacks of September 11, 2001. There is, in fact, much evidence suggesting complicity by some elements within the Saudi government. But that fact only further implicates western powers due to the close relationship between the Saudi royal family, which runs the Saudi government, and deep state controlling interests that have partnered with and manipulated the Saudi royal family for many decades. Blaming Saudi Arabia would, however, make a lot of sense if seizing resources, including the world’s greatest oil reserves, was what the war on terror has always been about.

Kevin describes a new book called The Eleventh Day, claimed to be “the definitive work to date on 9/11”, as a malevolent piece of propaganda that attempts to persuade the ill-informed of three things.

- malign the 9/11 truth movement;

- propose that the partial release of documents by the 9/11 Commission in the last few years has answered all the unanswered questions about the attacks;

- to blaze a new trail for Saudi complicity in the attacks of 9/11.

Regime change in Saudi Arabia is by no means a certainty, not least because of the symbiotic relationship between Zionism and Wahhabism (Israel and Saudi Arabia) but it wouldn't be the first time the Structural Elite have turned on "their own" (puppets of convenience). History is peppered with instances of broken promises and severed alliances. The Al Saud family were the lucky beneficiaries of the betrayal of commitments made to the Hashemite king, Hussein bin Ali. Saddam Hussein was another US/UK ally betrayed by the West when it became convenient; Muammar Gadaffi, Bashar al Assad, Hosni Mubarak.... the list goes on. Just because you're a "friend" of the Structural Elite today, doesn't mean you will remain so tomorrow.

It is the people of these countries (Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Egypt) and the rest of us who suffer the consequences of these geopolitical games. We must recognise that rulers (claimed to be democratically elected or not) are the problem; we need to dispense with hierarchy and make peace between peoples. These wars are neither in our interests nor of our making.

The real culprits behind 9/11 remain in power, hidden by the layers of complexity created within the political economy - we need to remove the veil.
