LET the following stand, recorded, as prima facie evidence of two intersecting fault-lines within America; both of which ultimately render the national interest DOA, regardless of the passage of time. Rigged. Indubitably, America’s leaders are in bed with the nation’s enemies.
White House officials claimed President Obama “cleared the air” when he met with King Salman on his visit this week to Saudi Arabia.
“Since the September 11 terrorist attacks, the terms of our relationship have been continuously defined by the Saudis rather than by the United States,” he told WND.
Haney won numerous awards and commendations during his long career as a Customs and Border Protection officer for analyzing intelligence and producing actionable reports that led to the identification of hundreds of terrorists.
But Haney faced opposition from the politically correct Obama administration, which made him the subject of nine investigations. Haney chronicles his experiences, including his connection to the investigations of the San Bernardino and Boston Marathon terrorist attacks, in the new book, “See Something, Say Nothing.”
Haney argues the American government made a deliberate choice after the September 11 terrorist attacks to overlook Saudi Arabia’s possible involvement in sponsoring terrorism.
“To gain their support in the ‘War on Terror,’ one of the first post-9/11 compromises America made with the Saudis was to redact the 28 pages in the 9/11 Commission Report, thus shielding and/or exonerating them from any involvement or responsibility,” he said. “A second compromise we made with our supposed Wahhabi partners in peace was to ignore their decades-long role in the funding and support of thousands of pro-jihad madrassas throughout the Eastern Hemisphere.”
The veteran counter-terrorism analyst accused the American government of ignoring both morality and national security to protect the interests of those who benefit from the status quo.
“The one-sided quid pro quo arrangement between American and Saudi Arabia is remarkably similar to the ‘gentlemen’s agreement’ between Turkey and the West to overlook the Armenian Genocide, supposedly for the sake of peace and political and economic stability,” he said. “In fact, President Obama reinforced this viewpoint on April 19, when he stated, ‘A country with a modern and large economy like Saudi Arabia would not benefit from a destabilized global financial market, and neither would the United States.’
“The White House claims legislation to allow Saudi Arabia to be sued for its involvement in 9/11 would mean the end of ‘sovereign immunity.’ If we pause and explore what this revealing statement actually means, we might easily come to the conclusion that no country on earth will ever be held accountable for supporting terrorist attacks and/or regional wars, simply because one country’s ‘terrorist’ is another country’s ‘freedom fighter.’”
Indeed, Haney argued a changing strategic situation is leading Saudi Arabia to actually expand its ties to certain terrorist groups, most notably Hamas. King Salman met with top Hamas leaders in a move described by the New York Times as “the most striking example yet of the new king’s willingness to work with Islamist organizations long considered foes.”
The Hamas meeting was described as an attempt to unite the Arab world against Iran, while at the same time, Obama is moving to repair relations with the Shiite nation.
Thus, as Obama tries to push Saudi Arabia to take stronger action against the Islamic State, the Saudis are more interested in trying to convince Obama to back away from Iran. Saudi commentators were especially outraged by the president’s recent comments Saudi Arabia and Iran needed to “share” the Middle East. And as Obama tries to navigate the complicated geopolitics of the Middle East, Haney argues he’s seemingly forgetting the American people.
“A new report indicates the flight certificate of a bomb maker for al-Qaida was found hidden in an envelope from the Saudi embassy in Washington,” Haney said. “This raises further questions about how directly involved the Saudi government is in sponsoring terrorism against the United States.”
Meanwhile, the Obama administration is still aggressively lobbying against the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, or JASTA, which is sponsored by a bipartisan group of 16 U.S. senators attempting to curtail the ability of countries to invoke sovereign immunity in lawsuits accusing them of supporting terrorism. Specifically, this effort is move designed to help clear the way for U.S. citizens to seek a legal remedy for Saudi Arabia’s alleged complicity in the 9/11 terror attacks.
As one woman whose husband died in the 9/11 attacks put it, “It’s stunning to think our government would back the Saudis over its own citizens.”
Haney says Obama is letting down Americans by refusing to put citizens first.
“It’s time to call Saudi Arabia’s bluff,” he said. “It’s time to stop basing our national security decisions on chronic appeasement of the ‘Guardian of the Holy Places.’ The statements from the White House show the Obama administration is anxious protect the image of Saudi Arabia, even after they deliberately insult him. With falling energy prices and vast untapped American reserves, we are no longer dependent on the kingdom. Now is the time to stop letting them slip away from responsibility for sponsoring terrorism.”
TO be sure, the ties that bind America’s leaders with the most evil players on the global stage certainly didn’t start under HUSSEIN Obama’s tenure. Far from it.
INDEED, Bush Senior’s father executed business with Hitler’s war-machine, yes, this is a historical fact. And for that reason alone, shouldn’t the Bush dynasty have been considered politically toxic for any leadership position (landing the patriarch in jail for facilitating a mass murderer’s genocidal goals), as opposed to rewarded in a father and son presidency, never mind Bush Senior’s Directorship of the CIA? Inherently, while America’s founding basis exemplifies the core values and striving of millions of patriots, the fact remains, over time, the leadership has morphed into a clear and present danger – to U.S. citizens at large, and those who seek freedom from totalitarians they engage with!
MOST significantly, for this discussion, 9/11/01 was the defining moment which revealed how the leadership exposed America to mass murder on her shores, having gotten into bed with Mid East brokers after WW 2. Consequentially, the nation’s security was sold out (in pieces) from thereon in.
SIMILARLY, 9/11/01 revealed the inextricable linkage between those who are tasked to protect the nation and those who plot to do her harm, and they are less than six degrees separated. And individuals who have any historical knowledge and memory, let alone claim to value integrity, will not allow party politics to destroy the truth. Try as they may, there is no way around the aforementioned two-tier nexus.
NOT only that, in terms of leadership, those who sit at America’s helm (and operate within this and that administration) are little different than those who head anti-freedom regimes. In reality, America’s leaders, for the most part, are more adept in their acting skills, but their intentions are equally malevolent toward their own.
STILL yet, before we proceed any further, it must be stated that BOTH sides of the political aisle are neck-deep enmeshed with Saudi petrodollars. Greedy whores. Even those who manage to “steer clear” of the bribes during their tenure in office, more often than not, end up in bed upon leaving this and that representative position. An equal opportunity scourge, and a grave betrayal of national interests. Resultant, it is mandatory to document how the nation got from there to here, otherwise, none of the geo-political fault-lines can be understood for what they are.
MIND you, who can forget the cozier than cozy business relationships between President Bush and the Kingdom, to the point of incontestable conflict of national interest and nauseating fawning? More troubling, who can forget the “all clear” signal given to scores of Saudis – including relatives of al-Qaeda’s Osama Bin Laden – to abscond from the U.S. right after Saudi hijackers wrecked the most devastating carnage on U.S. soil, bar none?
In the Boston Globe, March 11, 20004, Carl Unger, author of House of Bush, House of Saud: The Secret Relationship Between the World’s Two Most Powerful Dynasties, states that the 9/11 commission should ask who authorized the evacuation of 140 Saudi nationals on at least 8 aircraft making stops in 12 cities immediately following the attacks. “Many of the passengers were high-ranking members of the royal House of Saud. About 24 of them were members of the bin Laden family, which owned the Saudi Binladin Group, a multibillion-dollar construction conglomerate.” Unger obtained passenger lists for 4 of the flights, which are posted on his website: http://www.houseofbush.com and includes the name of Prince Ahmed bin Salman.
“As reported last year by Gerald Posner in ‘Why America Slept,’ Prince Ahmed not only had alleged ties to Al Qaeda, but may also have known in advance that there would be attacks on 9/11. According to Posner, Abu Zubaydah, an Al Qaeda operative who was part of Osama bin Laden’s inner circle and was captured in 2002, made these assertions when he was interrogated by the CIA. The commission should ask Mueller about Zubaydah’s interrogation. They should also ask whether the FBI interrogated Prince Ahmed before his departure.
“But Prince Ahmed will never be able to answer any questions because not long after the CIA interrogation, he died of a heart attack at the age of 43. Yet we do know that he was on one of the flights.”
Unger believes that this episode “raises particularly sensitive questions for the administration. Never before in history has a president of the United States had such a close relationship with another foreign power as President Bush and his father have had with the Saudi royal family, the House of Saud. I have traced more than $1.4 billion in investments and contracts that went from the House of Saud over the past 20 years to companies in which the Bushes and their allies have had prominent positions — Harken Energy, Halliburton, and the Carlyle Group among them. Is it possible that President Bush himself played a role in authorizing the evacuation of the Saudis after 9/11? What did he know and when did he know it?”
If, since 9/11, you’ve begun to think that all American politicians are corrupt, that our national anger was deliberately misdirected to places where it could be expended with absolutely no result, and that our military has been exhausted in a series of pointless, unwinnable wars against third-rate Islamic nations… you’re absolutely correct.
Everywhere you look, from George W. Bush holding hands with various members of the Saudi “royal” family on down, the real enemy of civilization wraps its tentacles more tightly around us. Case in point: the sham GOP candidate, widely despised former Naval officer and second-most-loathed man in the U.S. Senate, the ineffable John McCain:
A nonprofit with ties to Senator John McCain received a $1 million donation from the government of Saudi Arabia in 2014, according to documents filed with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service.The Arizona Republican has strictly honorary roles with the McCain Institute for International Leadership, a program at Arizona State University, and its fundraising arm, the McCain Institute Foundation, according to his office. But McCain has appeared at fundraising events for the institute and his Senate campaign’s fundraiser is listed in its tax returns as the contact person for the foundation.
Though federal law strictly bans foreign contributions to electoral campaigns, the restriction doesn’t apply to nonprofits engaged in policy, even those connected to a sitting lawmaker.
Groups critical of the current ethics laws say that McCain’s nonprofit effectively gives Saudi Arabia — or any other well-heeled interests — a means of making large donations to politicians it hopes to influence. “Foreign governments are prohibited from financing candidate campaigns and political parties,” Craig Holman, the government affairs lobbyist for ethics watchdog Public Citizen, said. “Funding the lawmakers’ nonprofit organizations is the next best thing.”…
THAT being established, while the House of Bush (and others) is deeply in financial bed with the House of Saud, HUSSEIN Obama is not where he is by accident, and multiple players had their hands in placing him at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
BE that as it may, if not for the fact that one of his main roots lie in Wahhabi Islam (the other in Marxism), trust, his Harvard education would not have had a Saudi benefactor. Not for nothing.
INEXTRICABLY, when it comes to national betrayals, nothing is more egregious than a Commander-in-Chief’s dual loyalties, be they financial-based or otherwise. The fact is that the end result is the same: an inability to place the national interest above all else.
NEVERTHELESS, under the hierarchy of dangerous betrayals, little is more toxic than that which is driven by hard-core ideology. And this is where the rubber meets the road, so to speak, when analyzing the core difference between the damages accrued under the House of Bush and HUSSEIN Obama, never mind the Clintonistas.
TO wit, as evidenced above, to place the final nail in America’s primacy as leader of the free world and as a nation-state, many actors have to execute the heavy-lifting. But whereas the Bushes (and others) are ideologically stuck on a globalist new world order, the likes of HUSSEIN Obama is coming from a DEEPLY vengeful and hate-filled prism, one which necessitates an Islamist and Marxist triumph requiring as many American casualties as possible. Hence, his fixation on opening the doors to millions of illegals and “refugees” from Islamic-fueled, terror-tied nations.
BTW, don’t be distracted by the so-called snub meted out to HUSSEIN Obama during his recent visit to the Kingdom. It has no bearing on the “special” relationship between HUSSEIN Obama and his Wahhabi benefactors. If anything, it is a backhand to America and what the nation stands for, and the rest of the “contentious” relationship is little more than smoke and mirrors.
OH, both the House of Bush and HUSSEIN Obama deserve the same punishment – adjoining jail cells, or worse!
