COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY MARK STEEL IN THE INDEPENDENT
"This is why, when it became clear that of all the countries in the region, it appeared the Saudis were the most closely linked to 9/11…”
A false assertion.
The author clearly is reinforcing a tiresome theme of certain parts of the American establishment. People like New York Senator Chuck Schumer, a world-class phony.
The Saudis were paying bin Laden solely for keeping his activities out of Saudi Arabia.
The payments had nothing to do with 9/11. Nothing.
The Saudis had no motive whatever for attacking America.
Indeed, to this day, we do not truly know that bin Laden himself had anything to do with 9/11.
After 9/11, American asked the then-Taleban government of Afghanistan to extradite bin Laden.
They asked for some evidence, providing evidence being a normal part of international extradition.
America refused, and soon invaded.
And you know what? America has never since supplied the world with a scrap of real evidence that bin Laden was involved with 9/11.
His guilt is just assumed, being repeated like a mindless mantra from our corporate press.
By the way, readers will be fascinated by the following article. I make no claim for its accuracy, but it is interesting and tends to support a far more powerful motive than the Saudis would have had, America's imperial wars through the Middle East led off by the dark operations of security services.
