In recent weeks, the alleged Saudi connection to the 9/11 attacks has been hitting the mainstream media with a vengeance after Zacarias Moussaoui, the so-called 20th 9/11 hijacker, shocked the world by claiming the Saudi Royal family played a direct role in arranging and financing the Sept. 11 attacks against America.
In addition, a growing chorus of voices have been increasing their demands for the Federal government to release the classified 28 pages of the 9/11 Commission Report, which reportedly implicate the Saudi government in providing aid and comfort to Al Qaeda members.
On today’s podcast, Jerry Robinson asks: “What if the Saudi government actually financed the 9/11 attacks against America?”
This is one of our most hard-hitting podcasts!

Full Show Notes
– Saudi Arabia is the world’s undisputed oil king, not because of its reserves, but more for their cheap extraction costs. The Saudis pay about $4 in production per barrel.
– In the energy business, its more commonly referred to as EROEI. (Energy Returned on Energy Invested)
– Saudis have a massive military arsenal. America has sold billions of dollars of our most sophisticated weapons to Saudi Arabia, Israel’s sworn enemy.
– The Saudi Royal Family has infiltrated our media.
– 15 of 19 of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudis.
– Can you name one single difference in religious ideology between Wahabism of ISIS and the Wahabism of Saudi Arabia? Both ISIS and Al Qaeda are groups led by Saudis, funded by Saudis, and teaching the same doctrines as the Wahabist Imams in Saudi Arabia!
– The religious foundations of Saudi Arabia spawn the jihadists, which the corporate-owned media calls “terrorists.” That label, however, downplays the fact that these groups are can be sourced back to a place of origin. They do have a genesis. Their thinking does have a point of origin. Namely, the Saudi Arabian religious system.
– There is little doubt in most learned people’s minds that ISIS and Al Qaeda are the Saudi offspring. Their carnage across the region is state-funded.
– Think for a moment: If a bunch of renegade, gun-toting Americans infiltrated the borders of Canada and began a military siege against the local civilian communities, what would the world think of that? Would the world blame Canada for the invasion? I would like to believe that they would choose to support the territorial integrity of Canada and demand that Washington clean up its mess. Indeed, that would likely be the only possible outcome in a world that practically worship the sovereignty of the nation-state.
– And yet, when 19 hijackers board a plane on 9/11, 15 of which are Saudis, America bombs… Afghanistan…
– And Washington decides to steamroll Iraq as well.
– In 2001, the Taliban offered to return Osama Bin Laden to Saudi Arabia… But Bush refused.
Washington Post. Dateline October 14, 2001. Bush Rejects Taliban Bin Laden Offer.
“A senior Taliban leader said Sunday that the Islamic militia would be willing to hand over Osama bin Laden to a third country if the United States halts the bombing of Afghanistan and provides evidence against him.
President Bush quickly rejected the offer.”
Here’s a Feb. 27, 2001 White House Daily Press Meeting…
The NY Times later reported Bush’s response in a story entitled: Bush rejects Taliban offer to surrender bin Laden
“When I said no negotiations I meant no negotiations,” Mr Bush said. “We know he’s guilty. Turn him over. There’s no need to discuss innocence or guilt.””
“No need to discuss innocence or guilt?” That doesn’t sound like a very “rule of law” answer, does it?
You have to note the irony in all of this.
A third world nation with an annual GDP of less than a small-cap U.S. company knew they couldn’t possibly defend themselves against the American military machine and so offered to hand Osama Bin Laden over to Saudi Arabia — if Washington would cease its bombing campaign.
Bush refused, sending U.S. forces for a 10-year long man-hunt for the world’s most hated man: Osama Bin Laden. As long as he was alive, his image and his actions would help stir the passions of those who remembered the fateful events of 9/11.
In 2011, Wired magazine reported that “at least 132,000 civilians have died from 10 years of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to a new study by Brown university. And that’s a conservative estimate.”
I can’t even imagine how they are able to gather these figures. It is just absolutely horrible.
This is on top of the $4 trillion it cost us to invade both countries and then rebuild them, so that they could get torn down again by the next country foolish enough to invade.
Its known as the “graveyard of empires” for a reason.
But leaving all of the folly of war aside, let us keep our focus narrowed on the Saudis. They, after all, were the ones who killed 3,000 American citizens on 9/11.
They are the ones who should answer for these crimes. They are ones who should be held to account.
You may recall that on the morning of Sept. 11, air travel was suspended for about three full days.
What you may, or may not, know is that members of the Bin Laden family were evacuated in a flight back to Saudi Arabia, with the assistance of the White House, while planes were still grounded.
The New York Times shed new light on the bizarre Saudi exodus in a 2005 report entitled: >New Details on F.B.I. Aid for Saudis After 9/11
“The episode has been retold so many times in the last three and a half years that it has become the stuff of political legend: in the frenzied days after Sept. 11, 2001, when some flights were still grounded, dozens of well-connected Saudis, including relatives of Osama bin Laden, managed to leave the United States on specially chartered flights.
Now, newly released government records show previously undisclosed flights from Las Vegas and elsewhere and point to a more active role by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in aiding some of the Saudis in their departure.
The F.B.I. gave personal airport escorts to two prominent Saudi families who fled the United States, and several other Saudis were allowed to leave the country without first being interviewed, the documents show.”
Saudi Arabia’s influence and control over America were on open display during America’s reaction to 9/11.
The 9/11 attacks also conveniently crashed another plane into the budget office of the Pentagon, destroying massive amounts of financial records. Ironically, the day before, Sept 10, 2001, then Sec. of Defense Donald Rumsfeld testified before Congress explaining that $2.3 trillion was “missing.”
Are you getting the disconnect here?
This week, we are also getting a few more details on the recent allegations made by Zacarias Moussaui, (supposed 20th hijacker on 9/11), that the Saudi Royal Family was directly funding Al Qaeda, and specifically funded the attacks on 9/11. Corporate-owned and controlled media has been swift to note that Moussaui is probably not credible. But it seems to me that these are pretty serious charges. Perhaps some of those who openly support the CIA’s use of torture should demand the use of it now.
If the Saudis did indeed play a key role — or any role for that matter — in financing the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil in our nation’s history, then I think it is incumbent upon our nation’s leaders to get to the bottom of it.
And what if we found out that Saudi Arabia funded 9/11?
Would America support bombing Saudi Arabia with the same fervor that they had in their support for bombing Afghanistan, one of the poorest nations on that planet in 2001 with a annual GDP of $2 billion? (That’s the equivalent of a small cap company! That is, companies with a market capitalization of between $300 million and $2 billion.) To give you a comparison, the Cheesecake Factory has a market cap of $2.6 billion. America went to war with a country, a country so poor that its entire economic output on an annual was a fraction of a U.S. corporation like Cheesecake Factory.
But enough about the tragic story that is Afghanistan, America’s longest war.
We are not going to let the sheer volume of this mess shroud our view of whats important…
Namely, why did flags fly at half mast in the West when King Abdullah died.
And why did the Pentagon sponsor an essay competition in honor of King Abdullah in the wake of his death?
According to a story on the U.S. Defense Department’s own website:
‘A Man of Remarkable Character and Courage’
Dempsey first met Abdullah in 2001, when he was a brigadier general serving as the U.S. advisor to the Saudi Arabian National Guard. “In my job to train and advise his military forces, and in our relationship since, I found the king to be a man of remarkable character and courage,” Dempsey said.
A man of remarkable character and courage?
The LA Times picked up the story in a piece entitled: Muslim American groups slam Pentagon essay contest honoring Saudi king
“U.S. officials have praised the late monarch as a reformer and a steadfast partner in the fight against international terrorism.
President Obama, who traveled to Saudi Arabia to pay his respects to the royal family, spoke of “our genuine and warm friendship.” Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel called Abdullah “a powerful voice for tolerance, moderation and peace.
Dr. M. Zudhi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, an advocacy group, said it’s a misguided attempt to honor the leader of what he called “one of the worst theocracies and totalitarian regimes on the planet.”
“If Gen. Dempsey wants an essay about the inhumanity of the king’s reign, that would be fine,” Jasser said.
Jasser, an Arab American who said he served 11 years in the U.S. Navy, said, “I don’t think our military officers believe King Abdullah and his regime are what we are fighting for.”
I hope that most Americans would agree that this was a completely ridiculous move by the Pentagon, but it showed where the loyalties of our nation’s leaders lie, no?
King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia was a brutal tyrant in one of the world’s most repressive regimes. He has been rightly called a dictator in a bathrobe. He was a disciple of Wahabism, one of the most literal, and therefore heinous, forms of Islam. His was a rule of Islamic theocracy which crushed dissenters. Its a thuggish government that relies upon intimidation and unjust sentencing designed to stifle revolt.
Capital punishments including public beheadings and limb amputations without anesthesia, eye gouging, tooth extraction, and surgical paralysis. Those who attempt to exercise free speech, or hold any other political opinion than the one issued by the state, are often punished with public floggings.
Women are treated like property in Saudi Arabia. Saudi women suffer one of the largest illiteracy rates in the Middle East. Many live in virtual slavery. Women are not allowed to drive! They cannot vote.
(Women in Iran have rights. They dont get fined for driving a vehicle in Iran. And they can even vote!)
This is not to mention numerous reports of child slave labor and other forms of forced labor.
Religious minorities have virtually no rights in Saudi Arabia. The Saudi legal system is harsh, but even harsher yet on unbelievers. Christianity is not welcome in Saudi Arabia. No churches are permitted to operate in Saudi Arabia. In fact, it is the only nation state that I am aware of that has an official policy of banning all churches.This despite there being over 2 million Christians in Saudi Arabia. But in late 2014, the Christian Post reported that Saudi Arabia had imposed a new death sentence for anyone caught smuggling Bibles into the country. Christians are routinely rounded up and charged with violating the country’s strict religious laws.
Imagine being one of those 2 million Christians in Saudi Arabia. Try putting yourself in their shoes for a moment…
The story from the Christian Post continues…
“Saudis who accept Christ as their Savior are choosing to pick up a cross of ostracism, discrimination, harassment, and even death. They risk losing their jobs, access to education for their children, or even the right to basic utilities like water and electricity… Yet the Church flourishes under persecution, and the body of underground believers in Saudi Arabia is no exception. No one is beyond the reach of God’s hand; pray for the Saudis to have the courage to take hold of it.”
(And Westminster Abbey flew their flag at half mast for this brutal dictatorship?)
The Saudi education system teaches and promotes the destruction of Israel. One high school textbook written for ninth graders reads: “The hour of God’s judgment will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them,”
Where do you think terrorism starts? What do you think is going to happen when six million children are inculcated with hatred at a tender age? Terrorism begins in the Saudi schoolhouse. It begins when little Abdul is told by his religious instructor that the Jews are sub-human mongrels who illegally occupy Muslim lands. The hatred of the Jews enters the heart of Saudi children in the schoolhouse.
And if the Saudi people don’t like it, tough! Because there are no elections in Saudi Arabia.
And what does Washington do?
They sell the Saudi government billions of dollars of weapons, while turning a blind eye to the neighboring Bahrainis who have been violently oppressed by the Saudis for demanding democracy.
Similar elements within Qatar, which are currently seeking democracy despite fierce Saudi intervention and opposition, are being ignored by Washington.
And yet, you and I are supposed to believe that the men and women of the U.S. military have laid down their lives in the Middle East for the sake of “human rights” and “democracy”.
Friends, you cannot make this stuff up. Who needs fiction when we have reality and the truth?
