9/11 Saudi Bill Passes Senate

imageWow! Fifteen, count them 15, years after 9/11 and the US Senate has passed a bill allowing victim families the right to sue the Saudi government for its role in the attack.

This is like a case study in how the American establishment covers, twists, and eventually tosses its lies down the memory hole. First, let’s acknowledge that the Saudi connection is only the tip of the cover up and plain as the nose on our faces to most thinking people even at the time. Fortunately, for the establishment, there were a lot of emotional people and not many thinking people back then.

I suppose the bipartisan senate that passed this bill, many of whom were in Congress between 2001 and 2004, want us to forget and forgive their role in allowing this obvious cover up to linger all these years. I suppose they want attaboys for being 15 years late to the party. I suppose they want us to forget the $2 trillion U.S. tax payers spent on the Iraq War, the thousands of American lives of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi lives lost, and the complete destabilization of the Middle East that resulted from their silence and support of the Bush administration.

I suppose they want us to forget how they participated in silencing dissent against that war. I suppose they want us to forget how they excoriated people who called out the Bush/Cheney connections to the Saudis and the way Saudi royalty and Bin Laden family members were whisked out of the country, while Americans were grounded.

Ah, not to worry, though. We have the hope and change president sitting in the White House. Surely, he will sign this bill and expose the concealed documents driving it, right?

No, American Presidents are part of a small club that protects the lies of the previous administrations. Clinton did it for Bush, Sr. Bush, Jr. did it for Clinton. Now, Barack Obama is doing it for Bush. Yes. His supporters will say he’s safeguarding an important alliance. Some of those apologists were standing on street corners protesting “Bush’s War” back then.

I hope the victims families are able to recover financial losses from the Saudi government for that day, but clearly the American establishment remains against openness about that day and consequences since.
