In this excellent overview of the 9/11 cover-up the Bush-Obama administrations have engineered and perpetuated, symbolized by those 28 redacted pages of the 9/11 report, former US Senator and Florida Governor Bob Graham, still campaigning tirelessly for the 28 pages' release, makes a point I had not heard before.
(Out on the hustings, by the way, Jeb Bush claimed not to know what the 28 pages were.)
Graham says there is even more than truth and justice at stake. Having continued to hide the role of Saudi Arabia in 9/11 from the American people, the US government has in effect given the original Islamic state a green light for global jihad.
I think that the Saudia have gotten the message that given what they know they did in 9/1 that the United States' failure to react is essentially a form of impunity, that we can do anything we want to and the Americans won't sanction us in any way. That has encouraged them to continue to support these extreme entities, the maddrassas, which teach intolerance and hatred, the imams in mosque, who preach to the adults that they should involve themslelves in jihad, and organizations like ISSI and AQ.
(As far as I know, Donald Trump is the only presidential candidate who has called for the release of the 28 redacted pages.)
Graham also discusses the bombshell letter from "20th hijacker" Moussaoui, alleging that top members of the Saudi family dictatorship funded Al Qaeda.
From the New York Times 2015 story about the Moussaoui letter:
He [Moussaoui] said in the prison deposition that he was directed in 1998 or 1999 by Qaeda leaders in Afghanistan to create a digital database of donors to the group. Among those he said he recalled listing in the database were Prince Turki al-Faisal, then the Saudi intelligence chief; Prince Bandar Bin Sultan, the longtime Saudi ambassador to the United States; Prince al-Waleed bin Talal, a prominent billionaire investor; and many of the country’s leading clerics
That would, of course, be "Bandar Bush," as Barbara Bush nicknamed him, and longtime favorite of this website, Murdoch associate and former Fox part-owner, Alwaleed bin Talal.
That NYT story ran on February 3, 2015.
The very next day, February 4, 2015, Alwaleed unloaded most of his stake in Murdoch's News Corp.
Were these two events linked? I have always wondered -- and wondered also at the lack of wondering.
Graham would like to see the Moussaoui claims, the crux of which he finds credible, fully investigated.
He also discusses the continued FBI stonewalling on the Sarasota cell, which I have previously examined here.
