Why US Government And Saudi Arabia Don't Want Americans Knowing The Truth About 9/11
22 April, 2016
In a rare show of bipartisanship, President Obama and top Republicans in Congress have come together to shield Americans from knowing the truth about who was behind the 9/11 terror attacks, which took the lives of 2996 people in 2001. However strange it is for neoconservative members of Congress to agree with Obama on anything, there is no doubt the issue must be serious if it warrants this level of partnership.
The issue at hand is the classified, 28-page section of the 9/11 commission report, which many experts and politicians with knowledge of the documents have said point to Saudi Arabian government officials’ direct role in the terror attacks. This is why the Saudis put out a stern warning several days ago threatening to dump up to $750 billion in U.S. assets if Senate Bill 2040 becomes law; S.B. 2040 would make public the 28 pages and also allow for victims of 9/11 to sue foreign governments found responsible.
The Saudis’ warning seems to have worked, with Obama now in the nation to “mend ties” with the monarchy and top Republicans sounding the alarm about the 9/11 bill. In an interview with Charlie Rose, President Obama claimed:
“If we open up the possibility that individuals in the United States can routinely start suing other governments, then we are also opening up the United States to being continually sued by individuals in other countries,” apparently referencing the U.S.’ own attacks overseas that have taken the lives of countless civilians.
Currently, Saudi Arabia enjoys “sovereign immunity” with the U.S., meaning even if the 28 pages proved Saudi officials were indeed behind the 9/11 attacks, Americans would not be able to seek justice for their losses. The new 9/11 bill would change that, and the Saudi response to the legislation moving through Congress reinforces suspicions the kingdom is somehow behind the 9/11 attacks.
The video below further explains why both Saudi Arabia and members of the U.S. government don’t want the 9/11 bill to pass:
This is from the notoriously-unreliable Super Station95 but does have a ring of truth (with all the other threats) behind it

King Salman of Saudi Arabia allegedly made his nation's views on pending legislation in the US, explicitly clear to President Barack Obama during their meeting earlier this week. According to information leaked by a person related to security matters for the President, the King of Saudi Arabia spoke to President Obama as if he were some type of lowly Beggar. The source described the King's mannerism as insolent in its tone, authoritarian in its forcefulness and disrespectful to Obama both as a man, and to the Office of President of the United States.
According to the leaked information, if the US Congress enacts a law allowing families of 9-11 survivors to sue Saudi Arabia in US Courts over the deaths of their loved ones during the attacks of 9-11, not only will Saudi Arabia divest itself of $750 Billion in U.S. assets (to avoid them being seized by US Courts) they will also cease selling oil solely in US Dollars. The "Petro-Dollar" would end!
So determined are the Saudis not to face legal proceedings in the US, their King allegedly stated these things explicitly to our President this week.
This information comes from an singularly sensitive source who, if further details were provided, could be identified as the source of the leak.
One picture is worth a thousand words
On Friday, US President Barack Obama declined to call the systematic extermination of 1.5 million Armenians in 1915 a genocide, breaking a key campaign promise in the final year of his presidency.
Sunday April 24 marks Armenian Remembrance Day, commemorating the suffering created by the first genocide of the 20th century. The ethnic cleansing and brutality culminated in the death march of over one million Armenians, accompanied by Turkish soldiers who denied the Armenians food and water, mercilessly beating to death those who could not keep up with the march, and systematically raping women.
The Armenians taken on the death march were forced to walk naked under the hot sun until they died on the road from exhaustion and dehydration. Over 75 percent of the Armenians taken on the marches died and those who survived the march were abandoned in the desert, thrown off cliffs, burned alive, or drowned.
There is broad historical consensus that the 1915 ethnic cleansing constituted genocide. The Armenian population at the time of the atrocity was some 2 million, meaning that only 25% of the country’s inhabitants survived or escaped the slaughter.
Nazi leader Adolf Hitler justified the extermination of Europe’s Jewish population by referencing the Ottoman Empire’s savage genocide of the Armenians. On August 22, 1939, Hitler proclaimed "Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?"
As a candidate in 2008, President Obama understood the importance of acknowledging genocide, to signal to the world’s despots that atrocities will not be tolerated.
On January 19, 2008, Obama said, "The Armenian Genocide is not an allegation, a personal opinion, or a point of view, but rather a widely documented fact supported by an overwhelming body of historical evidence. The facts are undeniable. An official policy that calls on diplomats to distort historical facts is an untenable policy."

Nonetheless, with one last opportunity to identify a historical truth and properly honor the suffering of an entire people, President Obama once again joined a chorus of deniers, embracing what he once called an untenable policy, and sending a direct message to his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan that the US endorses his plans to kill dissenting ethnic minorities to recreate his version of the Ottoman Empire.
That message to Erdogan comes at a troubling time, as the once stable Turkish democracy creeps towards an undemocratic theocracy sponsoring and supporting terrorism throughout the region. In recent months, Erdogan’s regime has systematically imprisoned and censored dissenting voices, has been implicated in a false-flag sarin gas attack in Syria in an attempt to bait the US into war, and has been proven to have engaged in regular arms and oil trade with Daesh terrorists.
Today, Erdogan continues to agitate for another assault upon the people of Armenia. In recent weeks, the Turkish leader has declared that the Nagorno-Karabakh region, currently and historically controlled by the Armenian people, "will one day return to its original owner – it will be Azerbaijan’s."
Erdogan recently stated that "Turkey is standing side by side with our brothers in Azerbaijan." Notably, Erdogan sees Azerbaijan as a country that is culturally and ethnically an extension of the kind of Ottoman Empire he intends to reconstitute.
On Friday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was in Yerevan where he denounced Turkey’s rhetoric saying, "These were not appeals for peace but for war."
At a time when Armenians are once again threatened by the specter of Turkish violence, President Obama bowed to the would-be sultan Erdogan, refusing to decry a genocide, while Russian officials send a stern message that such horrors must never happen
