This article was shared by Mr. T.M., and when I saw the title, I was tempted to dismiss is as but another version of the story we've all seen about those classified documents alleging a deep role of the (out)house of Saud in the events of 9/11. Indeed, as I have argued in my most recent book, Hidden Finance, Rogue Networks, and Secret Sorcery, there does appear to be a body of evidence connecting that odious and malodorous regime to the 9/11 attacks, and of its involvement at a deep level. THat said, I do not think at the deepest level, but at a deep one.
But to return to the main point: when I saw the article, I was inclined to dismiss it as "more on the same story" and hence to dismiss it. But that "little voice" told me I should read it anyway. I did so, and I was stunned, for there was a huge set of admissions in it..
Here's the article:
The first admission in the article came here, and I was somewhat gratified to see that my suspicions were confirmed. Over a year ago, you'll recall, Prince Bandar, a prince of the (out)house, went to Russia to visit President Putin. At the time, not much was said in the media - either western or Russian - about what had transpired in the meetings. There was some speculation, and even some indication, that the "prince" was trying to patch up the always shaky Russo-Saudi relationship with offers to buy billions of dollars worth of Russian arms. Questions were raised when the prince of the (out)house returned, empty-handed. Russia wasn't selling. Then, slowly, speculation begain to circulate that the meeting wasn't as subdued as first reported.
And that now seems to be confirmed by this statement in the article:
In 2012 Prince Bandar was in the news over issues of terrorism. The Prince, by then the head of his country’s intelligence service, had been tasked by the Saudi King to organise the Syrian rebels. Bandar, at a meeting in Moscow, allegedly threatened Vladimir Putin that Chechen Islamists could be activated to carry out attacks on the upcoming Sochi Olympics unless the Russian president stopped his support for Assad.
Bandar was rebuffed by a furious Putin who threatened retaliation. Details of the meeting were leaked by the Kremlin, and the Prince was relieved of his Syrian responsibilities soon afterwards by the King.
In other words, Mr Putin was offering Russian arms to Saudi Arabia... free of charge, if there was ever any "terrorist" activity. One can imagine the scene: Mr. Putin plays Prince Blunder or whatever his name is a video of the Russian "Father of all Bombs" fuel-air bomb, and then says "we Russians love our artillery, and we regard nukes and fuel air bombs are just another form of it. Can you say 'carpet bombing', Prince Blunder, or whatever your name is?"
The article also confirms something else that most have speculated was the reason for the document's suppression by the G.W. Bush administration, and its continued blocking by the Obama administration: the close relationship of the Bush family to the (out)house of Saud: one can only work around an outhouse for so long, before the odor begins to stick:
Two Congressmen, both of whom have seen the secret document, are behind the bipartisan motion for declassification. Stephen Lynch, a Massachusetts Democrat, held that the report offers evidence of links between “certain Saudi individuals” and the terrorists behind the 2001 attacks. Walter Jones, a Republican, said it also sheds light on why President Bush was so opposed to publication : “It’s about the Bush administration and its relationship with the Saudis.”
By now, you're probably thinking, "Ok Farrell, nothing new here, so what's the big deal about this article? Where's the high octane speculation?" Well there is that part about another prince of the (out)house trying to bribe former New York City mayor Rudi Giuliani to keep him from supporting the effort to disclose the document. Then comes the bombshell, and with it, our high octane speculation:
The former mayor said he returned the cheque after tearing it up. He declared: “His money he can keep and go burn it in hell. The American people need to know exactly what was the role of the Saudi Arabia government in the attacks: we are entitled to know who killed our loved ones and who almost killed us all.” (Emphasis added)
Killed us all?!?!?
Wait a minute... all of whom? All New York City? All Americans?
My high octane speculation here is this: Giuliani's words are not hyperbole; they were a :slip of the tongue," and that slip of the tongue indicates that there may have been far deeper and much more sweeping threats against New York City and perhaps the entire country that day, than just a few airplanes slamming into buildings. tragic as those events were, they fell far short of "killing us all," and that means there was a much more serious threat on that day, and that somehow, the Saudis, or their associates, were involved...
... and that means, like it or not, that there was an even deeper layer to the sad events of that day. And I strongly suspect that this is the real reason for those documents being kept secret to this day. That deeper layer may transcend the Saudis. There may indeed be something else hiding in the bushes... We know, now, of the nuclear and thermonuclear drills being conducted that day by the US military, for the Russians were monitoring them. But those drills may indicate that deeper layer, and more sophisticated methods of mass destruction that the Saudis, in their wildest wahhabist nightmares, can only aspire to.
See you on the flip side...
