Lawyers accuse Saudi Arabia of conducting a huge 9/11 cover-up

Lawyers representing family members of 9/11 victims have accused Saudi Arabia of orchestrating a huge cover-up in their role in the attacks and of “whitewashing” history. 

Saudi Arabia has been lobbying members of Congress by distributing an odd white paper that details its “counter-terrorism efforts”, in a bid to convince American lawmakers that they had nothing to do with the September 11 attacks. reports:

Riyadh is providing “more whitewash than white paper,” lawyers for the family members said in a statement on Friday, following the Politicoreport.

“It is, instead, a transparent attempt to distract from the real issue — culpability for the 9/11 attack and murders — and to mislead the American people and their Congress,” said the lawyers, Sean Carter and Jack Quinn.

US President Barack Obama has recently come under growing pressure by a bipartisan group of lawmakers to release 28 pages of the 9/11 Commission Report that indirectly implicates Saudi Arabia in the September attacks.

The 9/11 Commission Report was prepared by the 9/11 Commission at the request of former President George W. Bush and Congress. The commission was set up “to prepare a full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11 attacks.”

The commission concluded that 15 of the 19 hijackers who carried out the 9/11 attacks were from Saudi Arabia, and all were members of the al-Qaeda terrorist organization, but found no evidence the government of Saudi Arabia conspired in the attacks.

The commission’s report has long been rumored to contain information about a relationship between Saudi Arabia’s royal family and al-Qaeda.

US officials assert that the attacks, which killed almost 3,000 people and caused at least $10 billion in property and infrastructure damage, were carried out by al-Qaeda terrorists but many analysts say it was a false-flag operation and that Osama bin Laden was just a bogeyman for the US military-industrial complex.

They believe rogue elements within the US government orchestrated or at least encouraged the 9/11 attacks in order to boost the US economy and advance the Zionist agenda.

Analysts argue that Saudi Arabia only played a minor role in 9/11, but the operation was essentially carried out by Israeli and American intelligence agencies to destroy the seven countries in five years, that were enemies or threats to the Zionist regime.
