US courts have revived a class action suit which accuses Saudi Arabia of helping to organise the 911 attacks. This view has been put publicly by ex-Senator Bob Graham who oversaw the original US Congressional 911 investigation. Multiple leaks confirm that the section of Graham’s report that was redacted by the White House came to the conclusion that Saudi agents helped to organise the people named as 911 hijackers. After more than 10 years in the job the head of Saudi intelligence resigned days before the 911 attacks, while the Bush White House organised the evacuation of key Saudis from the US including Prince Bandar, known as Bander Bush for his close Washington links.
Led by Graham, US politicians, judges and sections of the media have broken ranks. The official story – that Al Qaeda carried out 911 with no help from any government – now looks increasingly unsupportable.
With the Obama White House and Saudis now at odds in the Middle East it seems more than a coincidence that US courts have restarted an action against the Saudis alleging complicity in the attacks. However most 911 sceptics think that the Saudis played a minor role, helping to create an evidence trail to support the official story.
911 sceptics feel confirmed by another new Middle East development: Israel and Saudi Arabia working together openly. Reports in Washington claim the powerful US Israel lobby AIPAC has been lobbying Congress NOT to reopen the 911 case. This is at odds with the official line that Saudi Arabia and Israel are enemies, but no surprise to 911 sceptics who point out that the main beneficiaries of 911 were not Al Qaeda or even Saudi Arabia but Israel, the Bush White House, the CIA and the US military.
