Typically, important information is fed to the press on a Friday, before a holiday, or in this case on the eve of the contentious Republican Convention in Cleveland. As one would expect, the release of the top secret “28 pages” implicating Saudi involvement in the 9/11 attacks was met with stirring silence.
Though long awaited, the former classified documents have only been gleaned through by citizen investigators that have been unraveling the 9/11 attacks. Let’s take a look at three scenarios that are simultaneously being played out:
1. The Government’s conspiracy theory – That 19 hijackers with box cutters pulled off the greatest surprise attack on the most powerful nation in the world. Government minders and mouthpieces suggest that there is actually nothing in the documents, just unresolved FBI and CIA investigations that were simply not followed up on. The incompetence theory meets “who cares about the Saudi money”.
2. The concerns over revelations about Saudi funding of the hijackers as manifest proof that the Saudi’s were up to their assholes in planning the attack. The 9/11 movement seems split on this issue, or realizes there is more to the story.
3. Elements within the 9/11 movement that suggest “The Saudi’s did it” is a fallback position by our own government to muddy the waters as citizens begin to understand they were lied to about nearly every aspect of the attacks. In this scenario, we can imagine that the U.S. may have held the report over the Saudi’s heads, urged them to over-pump oilfields (effectively bankrupting Venezuela and damaging the Russian economy). Now that the report is released, we have seen terror attacks staged within the Saudi Kingdom itself, as well as a coup attempt in Turkey. Change is afoot.
One of the best resources on this subject is the website “28 pages.org.”
You can read the full report at that website. I printed it so I could make notes and highlight passages. It really is very, very damaging to the Saudis, especially Prince Bandar. Nearly every page refers to Saudi officials and Intelligence agents delivering financial and logistical assistance to the hijackers, including money directly paid out by Prince Bandar and his wife, Princess Haifa. Especially noteworthy is the often overlooked fact that two of the hijackers “moved in with a long-time FBI informant”.
This is all played off in an “Ah-shucks, I guess the FBI just didn’t look any further” attitude. I just don’t buy that at all. Let’s take a look at commentary for scenario 2, in an open letter by the 9/11 widows known as “The Jersey Girls”:
29 Pages Revealed: Corruption, Crime and Cover-up Of 9/11
Posted on July 16, 2016 by WashingtonsBlog
By Kristen Breitweiser, one of the four 9/11 widows – known as the “Jersey Girls” – instrumental in forcing the government to form the 9/11 Commission to investigate the 2001 attacks. Follow Kristen Breitweiser on Twitter: www.twitter.com/kdbreitweiser.
First and foremost, here is what you need to know when you listen to any member of our government state that the newly released 29 pages are no smoking gun — THEY ARE LYING.
President Bush did not want the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia investigated. President Bush has deep ties to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its royal family and only wanted to protect the Kingdom. President Bush wanted to go to war in Iraq — not Saudi Arabia. So, 29 full pages that said “Saudi” and “Bandar” instead of “Hussein” and “Iraq” was a huge problem for President Bush.
It is well documented that the Joint Inquiry received enormous push-back against its investigation into the Saudis. In fact, former FBI Director Mueller acknowledges that much of the information implicating the Saudis that the Inquiry investigators ultimately uncovered was unknown to him. Why does Mueller say this? Mostly because Mueller and other FBI officials had purposely tried to keep any incriminating information specifically surrounding the Saudis out of the Inquiry’s investigative hands. To repeat, there was a concerted effort by the FBI and the Bush Administration to keep incriminating Saudi evidence out of the Inquiry’s investigation. And for the exception of the 29 full pages, they succeeded in their effort.
Notwithstanding the lack of cooperation from the FBI and the pressure from the Bush Administration to thwart any investigation of the Saudis, the Joint Inquiry was still able to write 29 full pages regarding Saudi complicity in the 9/11 attacks. No other nation is given such singular prominence in the Joint Inquiry’s Final Report. Not Iraq. Not Iran. Not Syria. Not Sudan. Not even Afghanistan or Pakistan.
To be clear, the 9/11 Commission did NOT fully investigate the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Staff Director Philip Zelikow blocked any investigation into the Saudis. Zelikow even went so far as to fire an investigator who had been brought over from the Joint Inquiry to specifically follow-up on the Saudi leads and information uncovered in the Joint Inquiry. I will repeat — the investigator was fired. In addition, Zelikow re-wrote the 9/11 Commission’s entire section regarding the Saudi’s and their connection to the 9/11 attacks. Former 9/11 Commissioners John Lehman, Bob Kerrey, and Tim Roemer have all acknowledged that the Saudis were not adequately investigated by the 9/11 Commission. Thus, for any government official to hang their hat on the 9/11 Commission’s Final Report — when Commissioners, themselves, have admitted that the Saudis were not fully investigated, is absurd and disgraceful.
For example, one glaring piece of information was not mentioned in either the 9/11 Commission or the Joint Inquiry’s 29 pages — the information regarding Fahad Thumairy and Khallad bin Attash found in both an FBI report and a CIA report —that are now declassified. Both reports indicate that Fahad Thumairy — a Saudi Consulate official—helped bring Khallad bin Attash into the United States in June of 2000 so he could meet with two of the 9/11 hijackers, Khalid al Mihdhar and Nawaf al Hazmi. Thumairy escorted bin Attash — a known al Qaeda operative — through INS and Customs at LAX evading security and any possible alarm bells. Again, this information is found in both a CIA and FBI report.
Note that these 29 pages merely detail the Saudi connection to the 9/11 attacks in San Diego. They briefly touch on the Phoenix information, as well. Though more notably, the 29 pages do not include information found in the more than 80,000 documents that are currently being reviewed by a federal judge in Florida — 80,000 documents that neither the 9/11 Commission, the Joint Inquiry, the Clinton, Bush, or Obama White House, nor the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia wants us to know about.
More than anything, please know this: The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia provided operational and financial support to the 9/11 hijackers. That is a fact. And, the U.S. government has been covering up that fact for fifteen years — even to this very day. And that is a crime.
Pretty powerful stuff. Let’s take a look at commentary on scenario 3, From Global Research:
Saudi Arabia’s Alleged Involvement in the 9/11 Attacks and the 28 Pages: “Red-Herring”, Propaganda Ploy
Michel Chossudovsky, April 28, 2016, updated July 17, 2016
* * *
The 9/11 narrative in the mainstream media has taken on a new slant. The FBI is now accused of whitewashing Saudi involvement in the 9/11 attacks.
The alleged Saudi involvement in supporting Osama bin Laden, not to mention the classified 28 pages of the 9/11 joint Congressional inquiry pertaining to the insidious role of Saudi Arabia in supporting the hijackers is part of a propaganda ploy.
When the report of Joint Congressional Inquiry into 9/11 was released in December 2002, it was met with considerable skepticism. That skepticism grew for a period of time but then was reduced to speculation about what was contained in the 28 pages that had been redacted by the Bush White House.
Various U.S. government leaders have since suggested that the missing 28 pages point to Saudi Arabia’s complicity in the 9/11 crimes. However such musings fail to discuss other important issues, like the links between the Saudi regime and the Western deep state, or the fact that, from the start, even the Saudis were calling for the 28 pages to be released. Discussion of the missing 28 pages also omits mention of the highly suspicious nature of the Inquiry’s investigation and its leaders. (Kevin Ryan, The 9/11 Joint Congressional Inquiry and the 28 Missing Pages, Global Research, March 14, 2014
And now agencies of the US government including the FBI are being accused of protecting the Saudis. This alleged Saudi involvement in the 9/11 attacks has served to precipitate segments of the 9/11 Truth movement into an erroneous and contradictory discourse. On the part of the US government and its intelligence apparatus, the objective is to ultimately to build a narrative which will weaken the 9/11 Truth movement.
The purpose of this new propaganda ploy is ultimately to sustain the legend that Osama bin Laden was behind the attacks and that Saudi Arabia relentlessly supported Al Qaeda, namely that Saudi Arabia acted as a “state sponsor of terrorism”.
In this regard, the media reports intimate that if the Saudi connection is confirmed by the 28 classified pages, this “would make 9/11 not just an act of terrorism, but an act of war by a foreign government.”
There is, however, an obvious hiccup in this reasoning: if the Saudis were indeed the State sponsors of 9/11, why on earth did the US and the Atlantic Alliance (under the doctrine of collective security) choose to wage a “Just War” of retribution against Afghanistan. Did they get their countries mixed up?
The above scenario heavily suggest 9/11 was an “inside job”.
Somewhere between scenario 2 and 3 lies the truth.
