Concerning the Saudis
- Cui bono?
As pointed out by that old Latin phrase used in criminal investigations, one of the main factors to consider is motive -- who benefits? So who are the Saudis, what would they stand to gain or lose by an event like 9/11, and why do we believe asserting for them a significant role in 9/11 makes no sense?
- The "Hijackers"
If the Official Conspiracy Theory's hijack scenario was not as described, the alleged Saudi financing of the "hijackers" falls apart
- Why now?
For 12 years the Select Committee's report and its redacted pages were mostly under the radar. What has changed to bring about the current furor?
- 9/11 Commission Staff Report on Saudis
Members of the 9/11 Commission (NOT the Joint Congressional Inquiry) traveled to Saudi Arabia and intereviewed a number of individuals there.
- Saudi 2003 "Bring It On" Statement
This piece in Arab News ("Saudi Arabia's first English-language newspaper") accuses the JCI Report of "institutional racism", and the Report's 28-page section of being a "charter for Saudi-bashing," saying "It would be far better if the section were published."
[Caveat: it isn't clear whether this is speaking for the Saudi government.]
