- Saudi Arabia Warns of Economic Fallout if Congress Passes 9/11 Bill
New York Times
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.

NewsRescue- As America has become oil independent, the State is moving toward declassifying a redacted 28-page document linking the kingdom in 911.
The documents according to US Senators shows that apart from the 15 911 alleged attackers who hail from the kingdom, the funds and other support for the 911 attack came from the kingdom with knowledge of the ruling monarchy.
An American scholar in Wisconsin said that a serious investigation into the background of fifteen alleged Saudi 9/11 hijackers, who were falsely blamed for “the 9/11 inside job”, would open up a huge can of worms.
“This missing document, these 28 pages, allegedly contain evidence of Saudi involvement in financing and backing the alleged 9/11 hijackers,” said Dr. Kevin Barrett, a founding member of the Scientific Panel for the Investigation of 9/11.
“And those who have seen these pages, including [former] Florida Senator Bob Graham and other people in the Congress have said that it completely transforms one’s viewpoint of 9/11.”
He explained that the attackers wee in the US on special US ‘snitch’ Visas.
Obama is set to rule on the release of the documents within two months.
