[Florida Bulldog Editor’s Note: Saturday’s lead story in The New York Times is headlined “Saudis Tell U.S. to Back Off Bill on 9/11 Lawsuits.” It reports that Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al Jubeir warned the Obama Administration that his country will sell off as much as $750 billion in American assets if Congress passes a bill that would allow the kingdom to be held liable in U.S. Courts if found responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The Saudi threat follows last Sunday’s 60 Minutes report calling fresh attention to 28 censored pages from Congress’s 9/11 report that former Florida Sen. Bob Graham says points a finger at Saudi Arabia.

On Wednesday, President Obama will travel to Saudi Arabia for meetings with King Salman and other Saudi officials. The FloridaBulldog story that follows was first published Feb. 6, 2015. It has not been reported elsewhere. It seems appropriate to republish now.]

Saudi Arabia’s new king, Salman, “actively directed” a Saudi charity whose funding was “especially important to al Qaeda acquiring the strike capabilities used to launch attacks in the U.S.,” say court papers filed this week by lawyers representing 9/11 victims and their families.

The Saudi High Commission for Relief of Bosnia and Herzegovina (SHC), which Salman led from its founding in 1993 until it closed in 2011, helped fund “the very al Qaeda camps where the 9/11 hijackers received their training for the attacks, and the safe haven and facilities in Afghanistan where senior officials of al Qaeda, including Osama bin Laden and Khalid Sheik Mohammed, planned and coordinated the attacks,” the court papers say.

Faith Based Events

King Salman bin Abdul Aziz al Saud assumed the throne on Jan. 23 after the death of King Abdullah, 90, who had ruled Saudi Arabia since 2005.

  1. Saudi Arabia was never prosecuted after 911 – because of the corruption
    of George W Bush and the Bush Family – the Bush Family with ties to the
    911 killers – through business relations including with Ben Laden’s
    parents. George W Bush failed to allow the FBI to go to Saudi Arabia
    and do their job to find those that funded the 15 Saudis that were
    killers of 1,000s of Americans on 911. George W. Bush allowed over 100
    Saudis to flea the USA just after 911 – some of those were working with
    the 15 Saudis there responsible for 911. Saudi Arabia must have
    sanctions place on it – military action should take place – and Saudis
    tied to the 911 killers – prosecuted – convicted and either imprisoned
    or put to death for their part in KILLING 1,000s of Americans. George W
    Bush should be prosecuted for Criminal Obstruction. The 911 Families
    should demand it!
