Here’s a little tidbit of information I wrote that’s too long for what it was intended for, and I thought it would make for a good article. - Jon

Throughout many of the investigations of 9/11, one thing the Bush Administration did was to make sure that Saudi Arabia and their possible connection to the 9/11 attacks was kept a secret, and that they were protected. They made it difficult for the 9/11 Families to sue any Saudis possibly connected to the attacks. This “protection” lasted throughout the Bush Administration.

When Obama came into office, one of the very first things he did was to invite 9/11 Family Members and families from the U.S.S. Cole bombing to the White House. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the closure of GITMO. The Washington Post reported that “President Obama will gather tomorrow with victims and families of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and U.S.S. Cole bombing for a face-to-face meeting as his administration struggles to decide how to handle detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, several of those invited said. The previously undisclosed meeting at the White House tomorrow afternoon will give the new president a chance to explain his decision to close the controversial prison facility where the U.S. has placed many suspected terrorists since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.” [WaPo, Obama to Meet Victims, Relatives of 9/11 attacks, 2/5/2009]

At that meeting, 9/11 Family Member, Jersey Girl, and September Eleventh Advocate Kristen Breitweiser asked him to release the 28 redacted pages of the Joint Congressional Inquiry into 9/11. Pages that spoke of possible Saudi connections to the 9/11 attacks. Pages that were censored by the Bush Administration. The New York Times reported that “Kristen Breitweiser, an advocate for Sept. 11 families, whose husband was killed in the World Trade Center, said in an interview that during a White House meeting in February between President Obama and victims’ families, the president told her that he was willing to make the pages public. But she said she had not heard from the White House since then.” -[NYTimes, Documents Back Saudi Link to Extremists, 6/23/2009]

A few days after Obama’s meeting with the families, he held a press conference. At that press conference, he was asked the following question by CNN’s Ed Henry. “Mr. President. You promised to send more troops to Afghanistan. And since you've been very clear about a timetable to withdraw all combat troops from Iraq within 16 months, I wonder what's your timetable to withdraw troops eventually from Afghanistan?”

So basically, Obama was asked about sending more troops to Afghanistan, and what his timetable on bringing the troops home would be. He responded by saying “with respect to Afghanistan, this is going to be a big challenge.” […] “you've got the Taliban and al Qaeda operating in the FATA and these border regions between Afghanistan and Pakistan, and what we haven't seen is the kind of concerted effort to root out those safe havens that would ultimately make our mission successful.” […] “The bottom line, though -- and I just want to remember [sic] the American people, because this is going to be difficult -- is this is a situation in which a region served as the base to launch an attack that killed 3,000 Americans. AND THIS PAST WEEK, I MET WITH FAMILIES OF THOSE WHO WERE LOST IN 9/11 — A REMINDER OF THE COSTS OF ALLOWING THOSE SAFE HAVENS TO EXIST (emphasis mine). My bottom line is that we cannot allow al Qaeda to operate. We cannot have those safe havens in that region. And we're going to have to work both smartly and effectively, but with consistency, in order to make sure that those safe havens don't exist. I do not have yet a timetable for how long that's going to take. What I know is, I'm not going to make -- I'm not going to allow al Qaeda or bin Laden to operate with impunity, planning attacks on the U.S. homeland.” - [White House Press Conference, East Room, 2/9/2009]

What Obama did essentially was have a meeting with 9/11 Family Members and others to discuss closing GITMO, and USED that meeting as a “reminder” to justify sending more troops to Afghanistan. Using 9/11 to justify war, or more war. Something his predecessor was very well known for doing.

With regards to the “protection” of Saudi Arabia, Obama continued Bush’s policies. A few months after telling Kristen Breitweiser that he would release the 28 redacted pages of the Joint Congressional Inquiry, the New York Times Reported that “the Justice Department, in a brief filed Friday before the Supreme Court, said it did not believe the Saudis could be sued in American court over accusations brought by families of the Sept. 11 victims that the royal family had helped finance Al Qaeda.” After this happened, Kristen Breitweiser said “I find this reprehensible. One would have hoped that the Obama administration would have taken a different stance than the Bush administration, and you wonder what message this sends to victims of terrorism around the world.” - [NYTimes, Justice Dept. Backs Saudi Royal Family on 9/11 Lawsuit, 5/29, 2009]

The victims’ family members released two press releases. The first one states, “today the Obama Administration filed in the Supreme Court a document that expressed the Administration’s decision to stand with a group of Saudi princes and against the right of American citizens — 9/11 family members — to have our day in court. Let there be no doubt: The filing was political in nature and stands as a betrayal of everyone who lost a loved one or was injured on September 11, 2001.” - [Statement On Behalf of the 9/11 Families United to Bankrupt Terrorism In Response to the Solicitor General's Refusal to Support The 9/11 Families' Petition for Writ of Certiorari with the Supreme Court, 5/30/2009]

The second one states, “on the day that President Obama holds his first summit with Saudi Arabian King Abdullah in Riyadh, the 9/11 Families United to Bankrupt Terrorism charged that recent actions by his administration would enable five of the king’s closest relatives to escape accountability for their role in financing and materially supporting the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.” The second press release lists “allegations made in 2002 of the Saudi royal family’s sponsorship and support of al Qaeda that the families believe have been ignored by the Obama Administration.” - [Obama Administration Enables Saudi Princes to Escape Accountability for Mat. Support 9/11 Attacks, 6/3/2009]

It’s interesting to note that the Solicitor General that asked the Supreme Court not to take the case was Elena Kagan, who later went on to become a Supreme Court Justice. Arlen Specter peppered her with questions about this very incident during her confirmation hearings.

There is a lot more to this story, but that is the basic gist of what Obama did within his first 6 months in office. He continued Bush’s “protection” of Saudi Arabia with regards to their possible connection to the 9/11 attacks, and still does to this day (the date that I’m writing this is 1/13/2015). He also used and is continuing to use 9/11 as the justification for MANY horrible things that he has done, and continues to do.

Since that time, Obama also told 9/11 Family Member Bill Doyle that he would release the 28 redacted pages, and hasn’t. Several Congressmen have jumped on the bandwagon to release those pages. A new site called 28pages.org has also started. There is a lot more to the 9/11 Cover-Up besides Saudi Arabia, but I thought this was the best story to show how much of a hypocrite Obama has been. At least with regards to 9/11.

It's sad that families of those who died during 9/11 and the SS Cole bombing have yet to get closure from the tragedy. What's sadder is that the US government will prioritize preserving its relationship with Saudi that take care of its citizens. In my mind I can't justify not recalling troops we have in war torn and terrorists riddled nations. Our soldiers come home maimed or worst dead and terrorist organizations continue to thrive and spread their network because of money individuals with hate agenda.

Please accept our thanks and congratulations on the success of your recent series on young scholars in our community. We see so much of the negative side of life in the media that it is refreshing to have a positive, upbeat report on the good things that are happening. I think the report was a great motivator for many students who need a little extra push. Our schools are doing a good job with limited resources, and they appreciate all the help we can give them. Thanks again for such uplifting coverage.
