Obama Officials Fight Bid to Reveal 9/11 Saudi Links
Wednesday, June 24, 2009 4:05 PM
By: David A. Patten



Detailed intelligence that could link members of the Saudi royal family to groups that financed the 9/11 terror attacks may never see the light of day, in part due to an Obama administration move to have a lawsuit filed on behalf of 7,600 relatives of 9/11 victims thrown out.

"Physically, President Obama has done what previous presidents have done for a long time, which is bow down," Debra Burlingame, co-founder of 9/11 Families for a Safe and Strong America, told The Washington Times on Tuesday.

So far, two federal judges and the Second Circuit Court of Appeals have ruled the lawsuit would violate the Foreign Sovereign Immunity Act of 1976, which prevents U.S. citizens from suing the governments of other nations. That law is intended to block legal actions by private U.S. citizens against other countries, based on the notion that those countries enjoy legal immunity.

The Supreme Court is scheduled to rule later this week on whether the 9/11 relatives' law suit can go forward.

Last month, the Justice Department drew the wrath of 9/11 family members by siding with the Saudis, and asking that the lawsuit be nixed.

"Myself and the other family members are unanimously upset," Doug Connors, who lost an older brother in the South Tower of the World Trade Center, told The Washington Times. "We feel that our government hasn't supported us as victims."
The administration's efforts to squelch the lawsuit may face a complication. An unknown source anonymously gave the families' attorneys over 50 classified U.S. government documents related to the law suit. The Justice Department subsequently destroyed the lawyers' copies of those documents.

Details of alleged Saudi financial contributions to known terrorists -- presumably in return for royal immunity to acts of terrorism -- have gradually begun to emerge, however:

A witness swore that he saw a top Saudi prince hand a check for $267 million to a top Taliban leader in 1998.

The New York Times reports a source, described as an al-Qaida operative in Bosnia, identified a Saudi charity that provided funds and supplies to al-Qaida in the 1990s.

Another Islamic charity largely bankrolled by the Saudi royals exhibited "support for terrorist organizations" through 2006, according to Treasury Department documents that the attorneys obtained via Freedom of Information Act requests.

The New York Times also reports that German intelligence documented "tens of millions of dollars" in bank transfers in the early 1990s to yet another charity suspected of financing extremist activities.

The families' attorneys have accumulated thousands of pages of information that they say supports their claim four Saudi princes indirectly supported al-Qaida and the Taliban prior to 9/11. But that information may never be presented unless the U.S. Supreme Court rules the case can go forward.

"In looking at all the evidence the families brought together, I have not seen one iota of evidence that Saudi Arabia had anything to do with the 9/11 attacks," Michael Kellogg, a Washington attorney representing one of the Saudi princes, told The New York Times.

Administration officials in the Justice and State departments met with the 9/11 families in the past week to discuss terrorist financing and the closing of the Guantanamo Bay prison. Family members asked why the administration was siding with the Saudis and trying to block their case, but the officials dodged those questions, they said.

The political experts will decide if President Obama’s speech at the University of Cairo on June 4 was a factor in the unexpected electoral defeat of Hezbollah in Lebanon’s elections on June 7. But while the international effects may be murky, a clear and immediate result of the Cairo speech is its impact on Muslims living in the U.S. Pride about praise of one’s religious traditions from political leaders often adds votes and voices within U.S. society. Catholic America should know: this was part of our past journey to inclusion.

But more than a touchy-feely sort of thing is the likelihood that the Cairo speech will produce greater support for socialized health care and an end to Israeli settlements. Those Catholics in America who agree with the bishops and the pope have long supported a universal health care plan and a two-state solution for Palestine and Israel. With the President’s speech, Muslims in the U.S. have been invited to make an alliance with Catholics.
