Book Review: The Eleventh Day, by Anthony Summers and Robbyn Swan | Afterword | National Post

The most damning element of the LIHOP story is that the CIA identified two of the 9/11 hijackers, Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi, as Al-Qaeda operatives and knew they had entered the United States months before the attacks. Yet, it alerted neither the FBI nor U.S. Immigration to the fact. Rather than condemning the agency for simple incompetence, Summers and Swan bring up far more fascinating hypotheses: that the two terrorists were posing as double agents for Saudi Arabia’s intelligence service or that the CIA believed they had potential for recruitment. In either case, they conclude, the agency purposely allowed them into the country and, obviously, committed a tragic miscalculation.

Whether the Saudis played a role in all this is unresolved. Indeed, the relationship between Saudi rulers and Osama bin Laden, progeny of one of the most influential families in the kingdom, is an enduring mystery. The 9/11 Commission made little headway in solving it, and the Bush administration did all in its power to prevent disclosure on this point. Information alleging Saudi support for Al-Qaeda remains classified.

While it appears the U.S. administration went out of its way to protect Saudi Arabia, it told outright lies to justify attacking Iraq on the false premise that it was behind 9/11. Pakistan, yet another of Washington’s supposed allies, also has a dubious history with bin Laden, right up to providing his sanctuary until U.S. forces tracked him down and killed him. In no conflict has it ever been more difficult to differentiate friends from enemies.
It's nothing new, really. Most people who follow this knows the Saudis were very involved.

And that Bush was protecting them.

Heh..guess no one wants to touch this one with a 10 foot stick. The fact remains the Bush administration did everything in it's power to push the blame elsewhere.

Hmm..no bites yet.

:lol:
not a bite... but i think it's clear that the bushes had very close ties to the saudis... to the bin laden family, in particular. that is why the only plane that flew after the attacks was the one taking members of the bin laden family out of the country.

Well the way Bush and Saudi men are always kissing and holding hands. What do they do with the camera off, one wonders?

I suppose this is old news and the current crop of the New Right with their disdain for facts won't really care, yet I offer it once again for some background on why the Bush Administration had such a hard on for invading Iraq.

Read this link and pay attention to those who signed this document and the role they played in the GWB administration:

Statement of Principles

Did they mention Jamie Gorelick's Wall that prevented the CIA and FBI from working together?

She put in place systems that allowed 9/11 and also helped pull down "We believe we are managed safely" Fannie Mae for which she got almost $30 Million

I'm sure Bush really doesn't give a fuck what the kook-fringe left freaks say or write about him.

Ratigan has a pretty good piece about this..

I think it's time the government came clean with us about the true face of petro-politics. That face is very, very ugly, and extremely dangerous, but it's time we learn the truth. For ten years, the U.S. government has kept secret the Saudi connection to the 9/11 hijackers. During both the Bush administration, and now the Obama administration, the government has kept information about possible Saudi government help to the hijackers redacted, and the FBI has not disclosed the full extent of its investigations of Saudi involvement in the attacks.

This isn't my claim. It's what former Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Bob Graham asserted yesterday on my show. Yesterday, he discussed his outrage over the government's secretive behavior with journalist Anthony Summers, whose book on 9/11 blew the lid off some creepy aspects of the attacks that President Bush, and now President Obama and his terrorism advisor John Brennan are keeping secret.

The public really has the right to know about how big the involvement was..
