The Sentinel came down on the side of not allowing the 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia because of the concern that we would then be sued endlessly by other nations but we might have been wrong.
The President and Congress will not release the 28 redacted pages from the 9/11 Commission and this lawsuit could force the release of those documents during discovery.
There is strong evidence that key people at the highest levels in Saudi Arabia, including the Ambassador and the royal family, were involved or at least knew about the attack.
Former Florida Senator Bob Graham told “60 Minutes” in an interview, “I think it is implausible to believe that 19 people, most of whom didn’t speak English, most of whom had never been in the United States before, many of whom didn’t have a high school education — could’ve carried out such a complicated task without some support from within the United States.”
Graham was co-chair of the Commission and he thinks the Saudi government is complicit in 9/11. He also says the link goes all the way to the top of the Saudi government and that the government’s funding of terrorist groups continues to this day.
On the 28 pages, he said: “I think [they’re] a smoking gun. I think the linkages are so multiple and strong and reinforcing that it’s hard to come away from reading all this material and not feel that there was a support network and that support network came from Saudi Arabia.”
He said it goes beyond the pages though: “They will also open the path to other materials. There are thousands of pages of documents, which speak to the relationship between Saudi Arabia and the 19 hijackers.”
Every road in the 9/11 investigation leads back to the Saudi government.
Paul Sperry, a former Hoover Institution media fellow, interviewed agents at the Joint Terrorism Task Forces in DC, Florida, and San Diego and the agents and police detectives who investigated said all roads led to the Saudi Embassy in DC and their consulate in LA.
They were not allowed to follow leads, several agents claimed. These sources say the “28 Pages” comprise “incontrovertible evidence” that there was official Saudi assistance in the 9/11 attacks.
Republican Congressman Thomas Massie of Kentucky described the 28 pages as “shocking” and said, “I had to stop every couple pages and…try to rearrange my understanding of history. It challenges you to rethink everything.” (see link at the end of the article)
We have no reason to protect the Saudi government and this must not be kept from the American people. Saudis are building radical Mosques throughout the United States. We need to start paying attention.
Judge Napolitano said the bill allowing this lawsuit by two such different Senators – Cornyn and Schumer – is needed. Let’s see the 28 pages.
The Senate might have enough votes to override Obama’s veto.
Here is some background information on the 28 pages:
