Within an hour or two of the 9/11 attacks on the Trade Centers, Ne York, the Pentagon and the foiled attack on the White House, it as known that Osama bin Laden, the black sheep of the incredibly prosperous bin Laden building family was behind it all. Many of the family happened to be in America on holiday at the time and President G. W. Bush made sure that were flown out within hours — before all further flights into and out of America were stopped.
Within days, it was rumoured in the press that of the 19 terrorists who where involved in the four planes,15 were Saudi Arabians. Incredibly not a word ws said about American recrimination against Saudi Arabia. All went very quite for a while except that the incident was transmuted to Islamic terrorism in general and then into Iraqi terrorism in the person of Saddam Hussein. Actually Osama bin Laden despised Saddan Hussein. The American public was conned, and so was the British population, too.
Now at last, the relatives are trying to bring all the evidence out into the open with a vew to suing Saudi Arabia in due course. A reluctant President Obama is now being pressured to declassifying what information exists. A showdown with Saudi Arabia for this and all sort of other reasons is surely called for. .
