    In response to the U.S. Senate’s unanimous vote to allow 9/11 victims’ families to sue Saudi Arabia in federal court, a report published in the London-based Al-Hayat daily, by Saudi legal expert Katib al-Shammari, claims that the U.S. masterminded the terror attacks as a means of creating a nebulous “enemy” in order garner public support for a global war on terror.

    The report by al-Shammari, translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), claims that long-standing American policy is “built upon the principle of advance planning and future probabilities,” which the U.S. has now turned toward the Saudi regime after being successfully employed against first the Taliban and al-Qaeda, then Saddam Hussein and his secular Baathist controlled Iraq.

    Al-Shammari claims the recent U.S. threats to “expose” documents implicating the Saudi government are simply the continuation of a U.S. policy, which he refers to as “victory by means of archive.” He highlights that during the initial invasion of Iraq, under George H.W. Bush, Saddam Hussein was left alive and in power to be used as “a bargaining chip,” but upon deciding that he was “no longer an ace up their sleeve” Washington moved to topple his government and install a U.S.-backed ruling party.

    The terrorist attacks of 9/11 are now the “ace up the sleeve” of the U.S. government, according to al-Shammari.

    “September 11 is one of winning cards in the American archives, because all the wise people in the world who are experts on American policy and who analyze the images and the videos [of 9/11] agree unanimously that what happened in the [Twin] Towers was a purely American action, planned and carried out within the U.S. Proof of this is the sequence of continuous explosions that dramatically ripped through both buildings… Expert structural engineers demolished them with explosives, while the planes crashing [into them] only gave the green light for the detonation – they were not the reason for the collapse. But the U.S. still spreads blame in all directions. [This policy] can be dubbed ‘victory by means of archives.”

    The impetus behind the attacks, writes al-Shammari, was to create “an obscure enemy – terrorism – which became what American presidents blamed for all their mistakes” and that would provide justification for any “dirty operation” in any nation.

    According to al-Shammari’s report in Al-Hayat:

    “On September 11, the U.S. attained several victories at the same time, that [even] the hawks [who were at that time] in the White House could not have imagined. Some of them can be enumerated as follows:

    1. The U.S. created, in public opinion, an obscure enemy – terrorism – which became what American presidents blamed for all their mistakes, and also became the sole motivation for any dirty operation that American politicians and military figures desire to carry out in any country. [The] terrorism [label] was applied to Muslims, and specifically to Saudi Arabia.

    2. Utilizing this incident [9/11], the U.S. launched a new age of global armament. Everyone wanted to acquire all kinds of weapons to defend themselves and at the same time battle the obscure enemy, terrorism – [even though] up to this very moment we do not know the essence of this terrorism of which the U.S. speaks, except [to say that] that it is Islamic…

    3. The U.S. made the American people choose from two bad options: either live peacefully [but] remain exposed to the danger of death [by terrorism] at any moment, or starve in safety, because [the country’s budget will be spent on sending] the Marines even as far as Mars to defend you.”

    The Saudi press has been in a frenzy since the unanimous Senate vote to allow for the House of Saud to be held liable in U.S. federal court for the 9/11 attacks, with the U.S. being accused of being in alliance with Iran – to press warnings that passage of the “Satanic” bill would “open the gates of hell,” as reported by Breitbart.

    Al-Shammari makes extremely clear that he views the problem as the U.S. imperial machine itself, stating, “the nature of the U.S. is that it cannot exist without an enemy.”

    The nature of the U.S. is that it cannot exist without an enemy… [For example,] after a period during which it did not fight anyone [i.e. following World War II], the U.S. created a new kind of war – the Cold War… Then, when the Soviet era ended, after we Muslims helped the religions and fought Communism on their [the Americans’] behalf, they began to see Muslims as their new enemy! The U.S. saw a need for creating a new enemy – and planned, organized, and carried this out [i.e. blamed Muslims for terrorism]. This will never end until it [the U.S.] accomplishes the goals it has set for itself.

    While it seems fighting Islamic terrorism is great for increasing fear and State propaganda meant to elicit compliant civilian populations that passively accept loss of liberty for promises of greater security, the military-industrial complex needs a bigger enemy to justify their $600 billion dollar-a-year budgets, thus beginning the transition to labeling Russia/China as “aggressive Russia/China,” in an effort to begin to pivot away from one bogeyman to other, more profitable, ones.

      One question…….
      Do you believe the US government has ever lied to the American people in order to alter public perception?

    • Aaron Owens

      Anyone who thinks 9/11 was an inside job is an illogical moron. You really think that anyone involved in our government, and anyone who knew of it, would have so little morals that they would plan out the murder of thousands of their own people just to drive our country into wars that cost trillions, and no one would have thought “this is wrong” and voiced against it. If anyone in government made a suggestion to do something this horrendous, do you really think that everyone involved would have been totally OK with it? Use your brains people. Believe it or not but terrorism is a real thing and there are groups out there that spend their time thinking of ways to attack the western countries. There is no way that everyone in government in a position to know of such a plan would have been OK with it. Our government is far from perfect and yes they have done corrupt things, but they are not so evil as to do that. This is just hate for government. Some people hate our government so strongly that they want to believe this nonsense. This is nothing more than Saudi Arabia trying to turn the blame around on the United States. The only thing they are correct about is that our government is forward thinking. As is many countries governments. As is alqueda, Isis and even groups like PETA.

        Anyone who thinks planes and office fires brought down those three N.Y. skycrapers, especially so uniformly and in complete contradiction to Newton’s 3rd law, is in a state of denial. Is it more likely that the laws of physics were repealed for one day, or that somehow; a cabal, operating in a compartmentalized, hierarchical manner, on a need-to-know-basis, with most participants unaware of what they were involved in, pulled off a terrible crime? Personally, I’ll go with the latter, especially since there are massive holes in the official story, wherever one looks. The implications are extraordinarily disturbing, but ruling out the impossible, this is what we are left with.

      The Israelis made little effort to camouflage their involvement. Their hubris – due to their control of the media – is enormous:

      Perpetrators of 9/11……………

      Orders from the Rothschild God of $$$

      Sappers (demolition experts), disguised as “electricians” and their protection from the outlaw Jewish state

      Head-in-the-sand stupidity from the American people

      This story was known by clever nations from the begining. All three US, S. Arabia and Israel are the main planners of this event , using dooms to execute their plans and to make them responssible. One odf the main reasons which also Israel was involved in this plot, is that, on the execution date 9/11 all jews were aware , should not turn up in their offices in these buildings, but not the exactplan of it.So these three together are Terrorist Bermoda, and should conpensate to all Americans, Afghans and Iraqi nations as result of their terrorist plots.

        Some Jews did show up for work at the WTC on 9/11. However, most did not That’s one of MANY pieces of evidence demonstrating that Israel was deeply involved in 9/11.

        Don’t neglect Jerusalem and London. Orders for 9/11 had to have come from London. ONLY the Rothschild God of $$$ could issue such orders.
