Saudi Arabia dropped a bombshell this week when they promised the Obama administration that if Congress passes a bill that would allow the Saudi government to be held responsible in American courts for any role in the Sept. 11th, 2001, attacks, they will sell hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of American assets.
According to Right Wing News, Obama is now siding with the Saudis by not releasing 28 pages of a 9/11 report that would implicate the country in the September 11 attacks. The families of 9/11 victims have spoken out to slam the president for taking Saudi Arabia’s side over America.
“It’s stunning to think that our government would back the Saudis over its own citizens,” said Mindy Kleinberg, whose husband was killed on 9/11 in the World Trade Center.
Kleinberg is part of a group that pushes for the legislation against Saudi Arabia. The group says Obama has “consistently sided with the kingdom” and has therefore thwarted their efforts to learn “the truth about the role some Saudi officials played in the terrorist plot.”
It’s absolutely sickening that Obama is disrespecting 9/11 victims in such a disturbing way. SHARE this story if you think the 28 pages should be released NOW!
