Trump Should Be Up in Arms & Twisting Arms Not Selling Arms to Saudis

Trump Should Be Up in Arms & Twisting Arms Not Selling Arms to Saudis

Everybody knows the explicit evidence found from 2009 that Saudi Arabia was, a critical financial support base for al Qaeda, the Taliban, LeT and other terrorist groups.

What happens next is what few people know. When handed over to the Saudis (who were really just U.S. intelligence agents pretending to be Saudi intelligence), Zubaydah was actually relieved and started demanding to talk to his contact within Saudi intelligence in addition to several members of the Saudi Royal Family.

Specifically, when confronted with men passing themselves off as Saudi security officers, Zubaydahs reaction was not fear, but instead relief. The prisoner, who had been reluctant even to confirm his identity to his American captors, suddenly started talking animatedly. He was happy to see them, he said, because he feared the Americans would torture and kill him. Zubaydah asked his interrogators to call a senior member of the ruling Saudi Royal family. He then provided the home number and cell phone number from memory. He will tell you what to do.

Upon further questioning by his Saudi interrogators, Zubaydah raised his voice and unleashed a torrent of information that one investigator refers to as the Rosetta Stone of 9/11 or what he claimed was his work for senior Saudi and Pakistani officials.

Zubaydah, insisted that the Saudis not only sent money regularly to al Qaeda, but that he personally dealt through a series of intermediaries with several members of the Royal family. He then gave more private telephone numbers from memory for a businessman and former military pilot, Prince Sultan bin Faisal bin Turki al Saud, another nephew of King Fahds and a friend of Prince Fahds, and also for a contemporary to his own age, another distant relative of King Fahds, twenty five year old Prince Fahd bin Turki bin Saud al Kabir.

Shocked to learn this information about their Saudi and Pakistani allies, CIA officials investigated the claims put forth by Zubaydah. And then they decided to pass some of the information to their Saudi and Pakistani counterparts hoping to gain a better understanding of the situation. The Agency was as interested in monitoring the behind-the-scenes responses of its two allies as in what they officially replied on the record. U.S. officials were already frustrated with the lack of Saudi assistance on the hijackers, fifteen of whom were citizens of the Kingdom. Saudi authorities had released no information about them. And that all of them evaded detection by Saudi internal security forces, who maintain massive domestic files, had puzzled American officials.

Of course, the Saudis denied all the information, secret deals, and connections put forth by Zubaydah.

Soon thereafter, interestingly (and rather unfortunately), all of the individuals named by Zubaydah during his interrogation turned up dead except, of course, Prince Turki who was removed from his post as head of Saudi intelligence and named as Saudi Ambassador to Britain.

Reportedly, on July 22, 2002, less than four months after Zubaydahs revelations, the Saudis announced the unexpected death of Prince Ahmed. He was forty-three. The cause of death was a heart attack, said the official Saudi news agency. The following day, the second man named by Zubaydah, forty-one year old Prince Sultan bin Faisal bin Turki al Saud was killed in a car accident as he was driving from the resort of Jeddah to Riyadh for the funeral of his cousin, Prince Ahmed. According to Saudi police, speed was the likely cause of the accident which did not involve another car. One week later, the third person named by Zubaydah, twenty-five year old Prince Fahd bin Turki bin Saud al Kabir was also found dead. He died while on a trip in the province of Remaah, fifty-five miles east of Riyadh. The Saudi Royal Court announced his death, saying the prince who was traveling during the height of the Saudi summer heat had died of thirst. Months later, Mushaf Ali Mir, the Pakistani loose end named by Zubaydah, was killed with several others in a plane crash. Case closed. Problem solved.

Unfortunately, at the time that the Zubaydah information initially became public, the United States was a nation with a President preoccupied with a war in Iraq. Neither the Bush Administration, nor the American public paid proper attention to the Zubaydah information and/or the alleged Saudi role in the 9/11 attacks. Since that time, all of the obvious questions raised by the Zubaydah information have yet to be properly and/or publicly investigated and/or answered. All the while, Abu Zubaydah remains in U.S. custody and at least somewhat willing to talk as a prisoner at GTMO.

Sixteen years post-9/11, the 9/11 families are still earnestly trying to receive a modicum of justice in a court of law by providing all the evidence we have gathered against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. We simply want our day in court. We certainly hope President Trump and Congress will continue to support us in our path to justice in holding the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia accountable for its alleged financial and logisitical role in the murder of our loved ones.
