This is a must read for anyone who’s even remotely thinking of voting for Hillary. The facts here call into question whether Clinton could disassociate herself from the Saudis if elected president. As it turns out, she and Bill are thick as thieves with the Saudis. The connections even go back to Bill’s Georgetown University days! Our lame press has conveniently left out so many details that the American people should know about the connections with the Saudis. Please pass this on!
When the CBS news magazine 60 Minutes ran their 28 Pages story in early April, they brought the issue of possible Saudi Arabian involvement in the 9/11 terror attack on the United States back into the public consciousness.
This triggered a debate on whether the 28 pages of classified material that were removed from the 9/11 Commission Report should be released.
As important as the piece was for raising the issue in the public consciousness, there are a few significant points that the 60 Minutes segment left out.
With President Barack Obama currently in Saudi Arabia and 2016 presidential frontrunners both talking about the controversy— Donald Trump has called for the material to be released while Hillary Clinton has refused to say whether she even read the material while she was the Senator from New York — a much deeper look at the issue is required.
In a brief recap on the 60 Minutes story The Hill reported:
Former Sen. Bob Graham (D-Fla.), who helped author the report, told “60 Minutes” the classified information outlines a network of people he believes supported the hijackers while they were in the U.S.
He said the hijackers were “substantially” supported by Saudi government, as well as charities and wealthy people in that country.
“I think it is implausible to believe that 19 people, most of whom didn’t speak English, most of whom never been in the United States before, many of whom didn’t have a high school education — could’ve carried out such a complicated task without some support from within the United States,” Graham said.
The 28 pages were cut from a report on the 9/11 terror attacks in 2003 by the George W. Bush administration in the interest of national security. Porter Goss, who was Graham’s co-chairman during the inquiry, said the FBI refused to declassify the information at the time.
The Clinton Cash Connection: It’s Not Just About George W. Bush
Although much of the reporting on the 28 Pages has focused on the Bush family’s relationship with Saudi Arabia, liberal media bias has soft peddled the long-standing and significant financial connections between Saudi Arabia and the Clintons.
These ties are significant not just for historical value, but because they also exist today. They raise serious questions about Hillary Clinton’s ability to provide an unbiased opinion on whether the 28 pages of material should be open to the public, especially given the Saudi Arabian government’s recent threats to wage economic war on the United States if the material is released.
While the Bush family clearly has troubling and significant ties to Saudi Arabia, as the New York Times detailed in 1993, so do the Clintons:
The conventional wisdom in Washington in the election last year was that George Bush was the great friend of Saudi Arabia — after all, he went to war to defend the kingdom.
It turns out that Bill Clinton was hardly unknown to the Saudis.
One of President Clinton’s college classmates at Georgetown University was Prince Turki bin Feisal. Today Prince Turki is the head of the Saudi Arabian intelligence service. The two stay in touch, an Administration official said.
As Governor of Arkansas, Mr. Clinton worked hard to secure a multimillion-dollar Saudi donation to a Middle Eastern studies program at the University of Arkansas, said Bernard Madison, the dean of the university’s Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences.
Those Saudi connections continued while Bill Clinton was president. As Breitbart News detailed in an exhaustive two-part piece recently, the White House tradition of holding a Muslim Eid dinner began with the Clintons and the events were hosted by Hillary Clinton herself. Hillary Clinton’s closest aide and advisor on Islamic issues, Huma Abedin, was raised in Saudi Arabia and as Breitbart reporting showed, came into Mrs. Clinton’s life midway through the Clinton administration in 1996.
After Clinton left the presidency, Saudi Arabia continued to be a major benefactor for the Clintons through organizations such as the William J. Clinton Foundation. As CNN reported about a list of donors released after President Obama nominated Hillary Clinton to be Secretary of State:
The governments of Kuwait and Qatar are also on the list, as is Saudi businessman Nasser Al-Rashid, who has close ties to the Saudi royal family. Saudi Sheikh Mohammed H. Al-Amoudi, reputed to be one of the richest men in the world, is among the donors as well. Both Saudis contributed in the $1 million to $5 million range. A group called Friends of Saudi Arabia and the Dubai Foundation appear in the same category.
Just today, The Daily Caller reports that that the Saudi Arabian government is paying $140,000 a month to lobbying firm The Podesta Group, in the account being personally handled by the brother of Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager and longtime Clinton ally John Podesta:
But documents recently published by the Department of Justice under the Foreign Agents Registration Act show that Clinton campaign financier Anthony Podesta is one of the several lobbyists at his firm personally handling the Saudi account.
The Prince Bandar Money Connection
One way money seems to have flowed to the terrorists was through the wife of a man well known to both the Bush and Clinton White Houses: Saudi Arabian Prince Bander.
As the Los Angeles Times wrote in 2002:
Haifa is the youngest daughter of the late King Faisal and is married to Prince Bandar bin Sultan. Al Jubeir, along with an advisor to Prince Bandar, said the embassy has been scrambling since Friday night to try to reconstruct the princess’ records of payments to needy Saudis in the United States.
Specifically, embassy officials were trying to explain how money from the princess went to Saudi nationals Omar al Bayoumi and Osama Bassnan, and how they in turn gave financial assistance to two of the hijackers: Khalid Almihdhar and Nawaf Alhazmi.
We Let Terror Planner Anwar al-Alwaki Slip Through Our Fingers
After the 9/11 attack, the commission has suspicions about American-born, Yemeni raised Muslim cleric Anwar al-Alwaki, who had connections with a number of the 9/11 hijackers.
Today, we know for sure that Anwar al-Alwaki was a terrorist recruiter and helped plan terror attacks for Al Qaeda. The U.S. killed al-Alwaki in a drone strike in 2011.
Al-Alwaki’s involvement in 9/11 is reportedly part of the 28 pages that is being kept from the American people.
