Breaking News: Islamic Fundamentalists from Saudi Arabia Implicated in 9/11 Attacks
OK, not really breaking, but it is fun to see the Truthers act as if this bit of information that most everyone has pretty much taken for granted as true for years is both new, and supporting of their most common thermite/WTC7/radio controlled places/Death Star theories.
Reps. Walter Jones (R-NC) and Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.) can’t reveal the nation identified by it without violating federal law. So they’ve proposed Congress pass a resolution asking President Obama to declassify the entire 2002 report, “Joint Inquiry Into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001.”
Some information already has leaked from the classified section, which is based on both CIA and FBI documents, and it points back to Saudi Arabia, a presumed ally. The Saudis deny any role in 9/11, but the CIA in one memo reportedly found “incontrovertible evidence” that Saudi government officials — not just wealthy Saudi hardliners, but high-level diplomats and intelligence officers employed by the kingdom — helped the hijackers both financially and logistically.
The intelligence files cited in the report directly implicate the Saudi embassy in Washington and consulate in Los Angeles in the attacks, making 9/11 not just an act of terrorism, but an act of war.
Now if you want to have a discussion on our completely dysfunctional relationship with Saudi Arabia, which has been pretty much counterproductive for the last 40 years, that is a good conversation to have, but sorry my Truther friends, the fact that Islamic fundamentalists were supporting the people behind the attacks, doesn't really help your case.
