ELDER PATRIOT - During the debate preceding the South Carolina primary, Donald Trump promised to release the 28 pages that had been redacted from the 9/11 Commission Report.
When questioned shortly afterwards at a campaign event Trump answered directly:
“If I’m elected: you will find out who really knocked down the World Trade Center. It wasn’t the Iraqis. You may find it’s the Saudis.”
He then promised to release the 28 still-classified pages of the 9/11 commission report.
“We went after Iraq, they did not knock down the World Trade Center. It wasn’t the Iraqis that knocked down the World Trade Center, we went after Iraq, we decimated the country, Iran is taking over, okay.
But it wasn’t the Iraqis, you will find out who really knocked down the World Trade Center. Because they have papers in there that are very secret, you may find it’s the Saudis, okay? But you will find out.”
At the time Donald Trump didn’t realize how sensitive a nerve he had touched as investigative reporter Paul Sperry revealed in the New York Post yesterday:
“…the [Saudi] kingdom’s involvement was deliberately covered up at the highest levels of our government.
… sources say the pages missing from the 9/11 congressional inquiry report — which comprise the entire final chapter dealing with “foreign support for the September 11 hijackers” — details “incontrovertible evidence” gathered from both CIA and FBI case files of official Saudi assistance…”
Sperry reveals it gets worse from there:
“After he [Saudi Prince Bandar] met on Sept. 13, 2001, with President Bush in the White House, where the two old family friends shared cigars on the Truman Balcony, the FBI evacuated dozens of Saudi officials from multiple cities, including at least one Osama bin Laden family member on the terror watch list. Instead of interrogating the Saudis, FBI agents acted as security escorts for them, even though it was known at the time that 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi citizens.
“The FBI was thwarted from interviewing the Saudis we wanted to interview by the White House,” said former FBI agent Mark Rossini, who was involved in the investigation of al Qaeda and the hijackers. The White House “let them off the hook.”
The Bush White House blocked the investigation into the Saudi’s involvement despite records tying Saudi Prince Bandar to at least one transfer payment of $130,000 to two of the 9/11 hijackers.
If the 28 pages are released and the investigation is allowed to be completed it’ll only be a matter of time before we learn that the U.S. government voted to go to to war to protect the Saudi’s oil fields from Saddam Hussein just as we had earlier engaged the Iraqis under the elder Bush after Iraq had invaded Kuwait.
For Republicans this kept the oil flowing to their corporate partners and for Democrats it allowed them to placate the environmentalists who stand steadfast against drilling in America.
The loss of young Americans coupled with the Saudi’s influence in importing Wahhabism into the highest levels of our government over the past two decades will not sit well with Americans once these facts are exposed.
This goes a long way towards explaining the overwhelming financial attack on Donald Trump that followed the South Carolina debate. It also explains the GOP’s willingness to coalesce around Ted Cruz who they universally detest. For the Bush family and the GOP the release of this information would destroy both their legacies and any hopes for a future in this game of thrones.
Jeb Bush dropped out immediately after the South Carolina primary hoping that would put an end to Trump’s line of attack concerning the Bush family’s complicity in hiding the truth from the American people. It didn’t.
By March 1st it became apparent that Ted Cruz was the only candidate with a chance to stop Trump. The desperate Bush family met with him to secure his promise that he would never reveal their role in the 9/11 cover up in exchange for their support.
First Neil Bush joined Cruz’s national finance team. This brought Cruz access to the Bush’s vast fundraising network. Cruz welcomed Neil on board the first week of March.
A week later Jeb Bush met with Cruz. By the middle of March he had secured Cruz’s promise of silence regarding any further investigation of their involvement in the 9/11 cover up and, after he had a chance to confer with Daddy Bush and brother George, Jeb endorsed Cruz.
The calculus by the Bush family was that Marco Rubio couldn’t be trusted to keep quiet. The Bushes viewed him as a political opportunist in light of the fact that he had been shopping allegations of Cruz’s extramarital affairs to anyone who would listen.
The revelations in Paul Sperry’s NY Post report may be shocking on their face but they point to a government-wide cover up of massive proportions that implicates virtually every Republican who held office at that time and since and that the Democrats went along with.
If you wonder why the GOP establishment has lined up so stridently against Trump, in spite of the fact that he holds the promise of greatly broadening their party’s appeal, you have to look no further than how much they fear him over this single issue.
