ON THE MENU? 60 MINUTES DOES A PIECE, DECLASSIFICATION OF DOCUMENTS ...
If you've been following the news lately, you're probably thinking that the world just cannot get any crazier, but each passing week the news seems to indicate something big is afoot, and one of the "big things afoot", as I've been arguing lately, is that a paradigm shift of major proportions appears to be underway with respect to the West's, and the USA's, "special relationship" with the (out)house of Saud. I've been arguing, if effect, that there are indicators of deep shifts in the "deep state" of views about that odious regime, and that all the public indicators are pointing in that direction. And perhaps a review of those indicators is in order before we get to the subject articles of today's blog.
First, there are the indicators from within the regime itself: you'll recall that Riyadh has been sponsoring various military interventions in the region, and has also been accused of being a major sponsor of ISIS. But additionally, Riyadh has made three crucial decisions and announcements in recent months: (1) it would issue sovereign bonds for the very first time in a long time to make up for a budget shortfall brought about by soft oil prices, (2) it would open up Saudi Aramco, the oil giant, to public shares, and finally (3) it announced it had purchased a few atomic bombs for good measure, which most people believe were bought from Pakistan.
Secondly, there are the indicators of a policy shift within the West and USA itself. The most stunning of these was President Obama's recent interview with The Atlantic Monthly, in which he made two astonishing statements: (1) that the Saudi's would have to learn to "share the region", an obvious reference to the Saudi repression of Shia Muslims within the country, who populate(you guessed it) the oil rich regions of the country, and of course, with Iran, a Shia country. But much more importantly, Mr. Obama also stated that the USA should revaluate its long time relationship with Saudi Arabia. None of this, I argued when the story appeared, would have been done without prior approval and a "green light" from the Powers that Be. Shortly afterward, the New York Times ran an op-ed piece questioning the Saudi relationship.
Now, in that context, consider these three articles shared by different readers of this site. We'll take each of them in turn:
Report: Senator Bob Graham Receives Word From White House That Declassification of Secret 9/11 Documents is Underway
Former Senator Bob Graham(D-Florida), has long sought with former committee member Richard Shelby (R-Alabama) to declassify those sections of the 9/11 commission's investigations that allegedly covered extensive Saudi roles in the preparation and execution of the 9/11 attacks. Now, in this article, it is being reported that the Mr. Obama's White House may be behind a move to declassify precisely those sections of the report that the Bush Administration had placed under that embargo, doubtless in an effort to divert unwelcome questions about that family's own deep business relationships:
Senator Bob Graham told the Tampa Bay Times on Tuesday that he received a call from the White House informing him that the declassification review of the documents withheld from a report issued by a Joint Congressional Commission in 2003 will soon be completed.
Graham, who has been calling for the declassification of the secret pages since 2011, says that the release may occur within “one or two months.”
The Senator believes recent news reports on the secrecy surrounding the 28 pages, including a report Sunday on 60 Minutes, prompted the White House to react, reports the Tampa Bay Times.
“The decisionmakers at the White House have realized the public cares about it and there is an urgency to come to a decision,’’ Graham said.
The pages, made classified under the Bush administration, document indications of foreign government support of the 9/11 hijackers.
Specifically, it points out that Saudi Arabian officials provided financial aid and other help to the 19 hijackers who flew airplanes into the World Trade Center buildings.
If these documents are declassified and if they contain what many suspect they contain, then it would be a geopolitical earthquake, for it would reflect the fact that the USA's post-9/11 "war on terror" was neglecting to lance the one pustule at the center of it all. The delcassification itself would indicate that this paradigm shift is underway and proceeding quickly. Why the quickness? I suspect the Riyadh announcement of a nascent nuclear capability has a lot to do with it.
Mentioned in the article is the recent CBS 60 Minutes report, which brings us to the second article:
Here the information becomes more specific:
A CBS News “60 Minutes” report quoted officials familiar with the 2003 report as saying 28 pages of redacted information raises questions over whether Saudi officials were involved in assisting Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar upon their arrival in Los Angeles in Jan. 2000.
Former Democratic congressman and U.S. ambassador to India Tim Roemer told “60 Minutes” the two Saudi nationals found a way to gain access to housing and flight lessons upon their arrival despite “extremely limited language skills and no experience with Western culture.”
And rounding out the picture, the "Icing on the cake" or perhaps better put, the ISISing on the cake is the recent announcement from Spain:
Spanish police find 20,000 Isis uniforms
This one bears reading closely again:
Spanish police have uncovered an alleged Islamic State supply network after seizing 20,000 new military uniforms destined for jihadist fighters in Syria.
Five tonnes of perfectly packed khaki uniforms were hidden under secondhand clothes in two supply containers at the port in Valencia, eastern Spain.
According to transit documents, the uniforms had been sent from Saudia Arabia to Spain, but their appearance suggested they had originated in a Nato country. A quantity of fertiliser, which can be used to make explosives, was also found at another location and seven men were arrested. (Emphasis added)
Now, while I have no difficulty believing that the Saudis would be behind this, another possible scenario presents itself, namely, that the real ultimate origin of the recovered uniforms lie in some unspecified NATO country, the real question being, Which one? Turkey certainly springs to mind, given its own dubious Ottomanic role in the whole Syria-ISIS episode. It's when one moves to a consideration of other possible origins that the plot thickens: if it was the USA or any of its great power allies, that raises questions of its own: why would such a "stunt" be pulled? One reason would be precisely to implicate the Saudis even more deeply in the growing insanity of the Middle East, and to make ease the transition from "special relationship" to "menu item."
So what's the key here? I suggest that at the center of this transition are those still-classified documents themselves. If released, and if they contain what everyone suspects they contain, then it seems reasonable to assume that Riyadh will be on the menu. Recent announcements that the USA will be energy independent in five years, much of which coming from renewable energy sources, raise questions of their own, but if true, it's a geopolitical game-changer, for in effect, the West will no longer be reliant upon any Middle East oil, and those countries without an immediate shot at this transition - Russia and CHina for example - will be left tied to a Middle East whose oil it still needs in the interim. Even the Saudis have sensed this coming, and have announced their own long term plan to transition the country from an oil to a renewable energy economy, which they hope to position it as one of the world's leading suppliers.
So this is definitely one to watch... and closely...
See you on the flip side...

“…it would reflect the fact that the USA’s post-9/11 ‘war on terror’ was neglecting to lance the one pustule at the center of it all [the Saudis].”
Actually, no. That pustule is a short way to the north of Saudi Arabia, along the Mediterranean coast (the actual ‘Primes’ live elsewhere)…
I do have to give credit to the original planners of 9/11 to build-in a backup line-of-defense, to be thrown to the wolves when necessary. The Saudis will be shown to be seriously-involved in the aid-and-comfort of the 19 do-ers. Not the planners, nor the ‘deep state’ treachery, but enough to be implicated. Clever.
I can see this ‘move’ to unmask the Saudis as coming from one of two aspects:
First, the real Players involved are on the edge of getting fingered. The Saudis are being thrown under the bus to distract attention from the more-complicit types. TPTB have done this before…
Second, the whole effort to unmask the Saudis is part of a whipping-up-the-frenzy intent against ‘Ayrabs’ (spelling intentional). The ‘six-pack’ population of the US is being led like lambs to the slaughter toward another Crusade or Armageddon-effort. The ‘reveal’ is just part of the propaganda campaign…
(Now, will the declassified pages come-out ‘whole’, or seriously black-penned?)
It’s the purchase of nuclear weapons that really concerns me also. But I can’t think of what they hope to gain by deploying one or who they would target. I just listened to someone making a rather strong argument that someone will set off a nuclear bomb in the ME sometime this year, so this just makes me more nervous about what is happening over there.
“(3) it announced it had purchased a few atomic bombs for good measure”.
This is the part that worries me in regards to the situation in Syria.
The war-monger neocons (the ZioNazis) are in no way going to back down when it comes to the overthrow of the Syrian government. They’ve had a huge setback with the Russian/Iranian/Hezbollah intervention, but they are certainly not going to give up. Deserting the Syrian overthrow would severely cripple their long-term plan for the region.
So, what to do?
OK, the Saudis aren’t much use to us anymore, too much of a liability. So lets start demonizing them, let it come out what a barbaric regime it really is.
In the mean time, let them buy (I doubt any money would have changed hands) a few nukes from our proxies in Pakistan.
when the time is right, execute the false-flag in Syria using one of the nukes. This false flag will be quickly traced to ISIS (or whatever they will be called by then, probably more of a name that directly implies Saudi Arabia) ) with clear connections directly back to the Saudis.
Voila! Killed two birds with one stone. Syria is in ruins with it’s government wiped out and the Saudi barbarians can be removed from power.
On to Lebanon, Iran and ultimately Eurasia we go.
Hope I’m wrong.
I would take the ‘news’ of the Saudis having purchased nukes at a different level. The Saudis would never use nukes, because it would be more than suicidal. However, a certain Middle East country would be more-than-likely to detonate several – wherever most advantageous for their purposes – and steer the blame onto the Saudis. “By deception shall you do war.”
From USAF Counterproliferation Center’s website, but it is ‘down for repairs’, so you have to go directly to this article:
Scroll down to Appendix A, and read how many nukes a certain Middle East country had – as of 1997 !!!
So when you read of nukes being used and blamed on the Saudis, remember this article…
goshawks, I agree, and that is basically what I tried to say with the “I doubt any money would have changed hands”.
I don’t think they bought a thing.
It may simply the seed being planted by you know who to blame the Saudis if this (or any) nuke (or nukes) is used in Syria.
I do think that is what the nuke story is all about. Why would the Saudis even announce such a thing in the first place? It makes no sense. The nuke story is used as a backup plan for the overthrow of the Syrian government.
It’s still “the kill two birds with one stone”. Not a bad day’s work for these psychopaths.
“They” will not give up on that and we know that “they” will stop at nothing.
As for the origin of the crisp, khaki uniforms.
If not Turkey, try Bulgaria.
This NATO member so often overlooked in the ties to the support of ISIS/ISIL/Daesh, whatever they’re called this week.
Every time the PTB set up a new 911 patsy the curtain behind which what really happened gets parted a little bit more. They are taking a risk here as they did with the 911 false flag itself, and they think the risk is manageable, but really it is not as manageable as they assume anymore.
Yep the Saudis are to be the new patsies, fall guys along with Turkey. To be take your pick thrown to the wolves, under bus or tied on the tracks to be run over by a oncoming train. But then again could any aware person trust what in those twenty eight redacted pages anyway are they in the end a bodyguard of lies.
I wonder why Graham is waiting one or two months? Graham, when he retired, wrote a novel closely based on his concerns and what he knew about 911. When asked why, he said that this book may help him stay alive…you know high profile….no, he won’t or did not commit suicide. Why now and why wait?
Basta, your observations and dot connecting are right on and placing 911 on SA will only go so far. I’m sure they were involved…the patsy, but many, many people already know the AIPAC’s actions in the past and continued actions.
As this unfolds it’s going to get weirder and weirder. If SA is being set up, they are going to go for the throat. ISIS, ISIL, Alciada, whatever name they are using now is a tiger that the elite think they can ride and control so that the tiger can terrify the world into submission under their mantle and network as we know as the New World Order. They are not in control or manipulate Islam any longer. It has a spiritual dynamic that at least some of them didn’t bargain for. It’s going to bite back.
No doubt to construction of the inside job known as 9/11 had several trap doors laid within the foundations of the planning; which have been ongoing since the towers lit-up. Seeds are continuingly being planted, to be harvested as the situation warrants. Now calls for the prepped Saudi Pigs to be butchered – long overdue.
The tale-tell signs of the inside job and the subsequent PATRIOT[traitorous act]; the Iraqi set-up, neoliberal-war-profiteering; anthrax congressional scare-tactic attacks; and the list goes on; all self-evident to those with any grey-cells left, or of even right persuasions.
Oh, for crying out loud!
What could they possibly produce as believable motivation for the Saudis to attack the US in 2001 – thus biting the hand that fed them – and then follow it up with NOTHING in the intervening 15 years!
I, like Basra above, can smell this rat coming a mile away!
1) The “classified papers” are most likely only “50%” truthful in that they will link the Saudi Gov to the effort. Their connection with the real culprits, and here Basta has coined it correctly–the “ZioCons,” another name for the Neo-R/R/BushCons and the Israel Zionists Groups, who have been/are allied with the US-Anglo* interests who really this country ( *the Rothschild–House of Windsor Clan,) will probably not be evident in the papers.
2) As Roger Stone has indicated, JB dropped out of the race within 11 Days of Stone’s Book–JEB and the Bush Crime Family–coming out because: “he didn’t want to be sitting in the WH next year when it comes out that his papa was behind 9/11.” Interesting/strong statement on his part, but he would know. Also, Dr Willie has listed numerous data points that link the Bush Clan and Saudis together, all which help support the conjecture that certain US/SA/Zionists interests were really behind 9/11–to include the “non-investigative committee” and their lame report, and portend of who would get control of the Global Opium Trade as the Afghan Segment was added-in.
3) Given the nature of the “real drivers” behind the war that followed and the insidious previously written Pat Act and what it’ intended outcome was to create, and has, it becomes clear that oil, gold, special artifacts, opium, and a “controlled US/European Security-State” (NWO,) were the real reasons behind 9/11.
4) Simply, the nature of the collapse of the TTs and other buildings etc. was not due to “jet fuel” heat, nor did a plane hit the P, and why no debris at the PA site….all a ruse. Add-in the motivations of Silverstein and the Insurance Payout, the massive “bank heist” that occurred during the TT collapse, and it becomes clear that the travesty was planned–and not by OBL, whose first answer was: “I didn’t do it!” (If he did, AQ would have proudly claimed it.) All blamed culprits–AQ, SH and the Tali–were big time losers. But who were the real big time winners–“follow the money, right?”–NeoCons, BushClan, Israel–US Mil, now the US Mil-Security State Complex. So what resulted?: A massive wealth transfer, control of Afghan Op and the rise of the new US Corp Fascist State.
It’s time to really expose the fraud/crimes and ALL the culprits–not just SA.
Why just SA? Well, the Rockefellar Interets have just divested 80% of their fossil fuel holdings which suggests there is a “new energy source” just around the corner. Thus, SA Oil, though diminishing, is not so important, going forward…thus, their recent announcement to invest in non-oil infra-tech.
Also, I believe, there has been a falling-out between the Rocke and Roth Alliance as well as between the Rocke and BC, now that the BC has become so very wealthy–as Willie tells us. It is demanding a much bigger “say” at the geo-eco-pol-table…
No Wonder Russia and Chna are uniting so intently and pulling in others as fast as they can. They are seeking global control as the Insanity of the Western Elites has now become so threatening to all the World. Simply, they must be defeated, and now!
2016 is “The Year of The Jubilee” and it couldn’t come quick enough given all the Insanity….
1000 years holiday sounds good.
TPTB are still pushing the “official government story” of 911. By now, anyone with half a brain should realize that those planes did not bring down the twin towers and certainly didn’t bring down building 7. So, those responsible for the murder of those people are looking to shift the blame to the Saudi’s thus covering their own complicity in the matter.
President Bush tried to change the rules on how long he had to live in the US under secret service protection before he left office. If memory serves me correctly he was trying to move to his ranch in Paraguay but they wouldn’t let him change the rules. But if you notice his residence in Texas isn’t too far from the Mexican border. 911 in my opinion was a false flag carried out by our own people as well. Wasn’t it an Israeli company that was running some kind of cable throughout those downed buildings a few months before hand? I know another group of dancing Israelis got caught with a van full of explosives near the only bridge out of there. So it appears at least two intelligence organizations were involved and Saudi intelligence likely only helped supply the patsies.
It bears endless repeating: the Saudis, though odious, are being set up by the ZioCons to take the fall for 911.
Five dancing Saudis at Fort Lee? No, not really.
Dov Zakheim a dual-passport Wahabbi Imam? No, actually not.
Robert Zelikow a Saudi plant to control the cover up? No, apparently not.
PNAC, a Saudi think tank full of psychopathic warmongers plotting a Greater Saudi Arabia and regime overthrow throughout the Middle East? No, sorry, guess again.
Larry Silverstein, an Islamic real estate mogul? Erm, no, still off.
AIPAC, a massively influential Saudi lobby that makes the congress critters sign blood oaths to defend the kingdom before all else? Nope, guess again.
But gee, it’s always those nefarious outhouse of Saud sidekicks, yeah, they’re the ones dun didit!
Well then, who owns the house for which the outhouse is dependency, pray tell?
Circumstantial evidence at best. Only the nazis have the space based directed energy weapons that took down the towers. Plus we all know the nazis control 60 Minutes. As far as dancing Israelis go– consider it a hot sand dance. As the Israelis intuitively went to the roof to observe the impending disaster, the heat from the energy weapon also caused the roof they were standing on to sizzle as well. As FBI evidence later confirmed, none of these men were wearing shoes at the time because they had just gotten done stomping grapes for some kosher wine they were making that was to be served to American preachers, politicians and bloggers who would be traveling to Israel on a special junket later that year to observe the IDF massacring Palestinians.
I get so tired of the “dancing Israelis” meme, made by people who don’t know much about Israeli culture because if they did they would know that Tuesday’s are wedding days for Israelis, and Israelis are very prone to dancing at weddings, even in the streets.
……and M.(I can’t bring myself to say his first name) Atta wasn’t a double agent. lol. It was luck that allowed them to I.D. him so soon.
Right on basta, you nailed it.
House of Saud? Erdogan? All just pawns in the game, totally expendable.
They will simply be replaced by other pawns.
If the situation with the ZioNazis in their pariah state over there by the Mediterranean stays the same, then nothing changes.
Eliminate the root cause, don’t treat the symptom.
Hmmm, where else is this going on again?
