On the Eve of 9/11 Anniversary, Saudi Role in Original 9/11 Attack Identified Internationally; Will the U.S. Congress Finally Act?

Sept. 10, 2013 (EIRNS)—On the eve of the anniversary of the 9/11/2001 atrocity, carried out by the British and Saudi kingdoms, the role of the Saudi monarchy in that event, and today's terrorist upsurge in Syria, is finally coming out internationally, in locations other than this news service. Yet, in the United States, the Obama administration, like Bush's before it, is still suppressing the crucial 28 pages of the Congressional Inquiry report on 9/11, which deals with the Saudi role in that major act of terrorism.

EIR's recent feature package on busting the London-Riyadh global terror axis, beginning with the release of the 28 pages, is now circulating as an offprint in Washington, D.C., as a spur to Congressional action.

Most striking in revealing the Saudi role was a letter sent from the Speaker of the Syrian Parliament on Sept. 4, to the Speaker of the House John Boehner. The letter pleaded for the American Congress to reject war against Syria, and outlined the facts which show that Syria and the U.S. face a common enemy, the Wahhabi jihadist ideology of the Saudi Kingdom. That Saudi ideology was behind the 9/11 atrocity, the letter states, and is funding and arming the insurgency against the Syrian government today.

The full letter will be published in the Sept. 13 issue of EIR magazine.

Other publications are also pointing at the role being played by the Saudis in fueling the al-Qaeda upsurge in Syria, including that of Prince Bandar bin-Sultan, now head of Saudi intelligence. As EIR has documented at length, Prince Bandar, as ambassador to the United States, served as the paymaster for at least two of the Saudi hijackers who flew planes into the World Trade Center, killing thousands. Among those highlighting his role recently is the Wall Street Journal, which ran an extensive profile of Bandar's role with the Syrian opposition on Aug. 26. The Journal did not fail to note his continued influence in Washington, D.C. as well, especially through CIA head John Brennan, identified as the official closest to the Saudis.

Of note, as well, was a news review program aired on Russia's pre-eminent TV station on Sept. 8, which emphasized that Saudi Arabia is currently deploying the United States against Syria. In fact, the broadcast asserted that U.S. soldiers—should they be deployed against Syria—would be functioning as "mercenaries for the Saudis," since it is the Saudis who are not only pushing the intervention, but also who are expected to pay for the "cost overruns" of the military action.
