Former New York City Police Commissioner Kerek: Release of 28 Pages ‘Could Topple House of Saud’

April 24, 2016 (EIRNS)—Reflecting the intensified global focus over the 28 pages, Bernie Kerik, who served as New York City Police Commissioner during the time that the 9/11 attack occurred, told "Newsmax Now" host John Bachman April 22 that some members of the 9/11 Commission

"strongly believe that there’s information in those 28 pages that would give some evidence that Saudi Arabia... [was] culpable."

If that’s the case, Kerik said,

"it’s just not about the families of the victims of 9/11.... This could have worldwide ramifications and legal issues, lawsuits, countries that would go after Saudi Arabia,"

he said. "I think there’s a good chance that it could topple the House of Saud."

Of course it could, Lyndon LaRouche commented today.

Kerik continued that Saudi Arabia’s threat to sell off $750 billion in U.S. Treasuries if the 28 pages were declassified, is

"nothing but economic terrorism, because they believe that that’s going to cripple our country. We shouldn’t cower to it,"

he said.

"I think the American people deserve it," he said. "They need to know, and whoever was responsible should be held accountable."

Since Obama is fixated on putting together a phony legacy, Kerek added ironically,

"what if [Obama] declassifies [the 28 pages] and the House of Saud really crumbles to some extent? What a legacy he would have."

At the same time, Bill Maher, who runs the widely viewed national TV political talk show "Real Time With Bill Maher," stressed April 22 that the United States under Bush attacked the wrong country after 9/11.

"Especially ... if we know that it was the Saudis who attacked us, wow, that makes the Iraq war look even worse. Lots of people have always said, ‘We attacked the wrong country.’ But now it’s pretty out there. We definitely attacked the wrong country, and there was an actual right country."

That "right country" should be the British-Saudi monarchy.
