Press Release

Saudis Are Threatening, But It’s Obama Covering for
British/Saudi Use of Terrorism

April 2016

President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama, leaving Riyadh, January 2015.

April 17, 2016 (EIRNS)—The years-long campaign to expose the Saudi monarchy’s and Prince Bandar’s direct involvement in the September 11, 2001 attacks, in which EIR News Service and LaRouche PAC have collaborated with the 9/11 victims’ families and with members of the House and Senate, has reached a new turning point. The international political heat is now directly on Barack Obama, who travels to Saudi Arabia on April 20.

The national exposure of the Saudi Kingdom’s now-presumptive role in the 9/11 "al-Qaeda" attacks on the United States, has fully broken out of containment and was debated on all the Sunday morning TV network talk shows today, as well as making the front-page news for Britain’s Sunday MailSunday Mirror, and Independent. Given especially the wild threat by Saudi Foreign Minister Jubeir to sell off all their U.S. Treasury holdings if the monarchy is opened up to exposure in U.S. courts, President Obama’s visits this week to the royal families in Riyadh and London are going to be extremely tense. The Saudi monarchy denounced with similar anger the April 10 CBS News "60 Minutes" broadcast on the secret "28 pages" of the Congressional investigation’s report on 9/11, which essentially settled the issue: Those pages will reveal Saudi involvement in the attacks, if they are declassified.

But as furious as the Saudi monarchy is, the newly aroused mobilization for justice and truth in these 3,000 terrorist murders, is focussing on Obama. Former Sen. Bob Graham who chaired the Joint Congressional Inquiry, was interviewed in today’s New York Daily News, and called Obama’s coverup more reprehensible than the Saudi threats (see separate report). Today’s Sunday Mail, typical of London coverage, is headlined: "Victims of 9/11 Families Accuse Obama of ‘Siding with Saudi Arabia over Its Own Citizens.’" The Daily News front-page combined the interesting headline "Saudi Scum" with a picture of Obama being draped with a gold medallion award by the late Saudi King Abdullah.

Most notable is the article in the Sunday New York Post, based on intelligence sources, which states: "The kingdom’s involvement was deliberately covered up at the highest levels of our government. And the coverup goes beyond locking up 28 pages of the Saudi report in a vault in the U.S. Capitol basement. Investigations were throttled. Co-conspirators were let off the hook."

The article, by Paul Sperry of the Hoover Institution, continues,

"Case agents I’ve interviewed at the Joint Terrorism Task Forces in Washington and San Diego ... as well as detectives at the Fairfax County (Va.) Police Department who also investigated several 9/11 leads, say virtually every road led back to the Saudi Embassy in Washington, as well as the Saudi Consulate in Los Angeles."

But the FBI headquarters continually called them off. Former FBI agent John Guandolo, who worked 9/11 and al-Qaeda cases out of the FBI’s Washington field office, is quoted: "The Saudi ambassador [Prince Bandar] funded two of the 9/11 hijackers through a third party. He should be treated as a terrorist suspect, as should other members of the Saudi elite class who the U.S. government knows are currently funding the global jihad. But Bandar held sway over the FBI."

There is more in Sperry’s article, "How U.S. Covered Up Saudi Role in 9/11"

But it should not be forgotten that Lyndon LaRouche, the only leading political figure being interviewed live on radio when the 9/11 attacks hit,immediately warned against the "bin Laden did it" line, and said that governments were involved including operations penetrating the U.S. government of George W. Bush. LaRouche had forecast eight months earlier, a "Reichstag Fire" type of attack shortly after Bush and Cheney took office.
