Bush, Obama and the court swooned for Saudi Money
July 8, 2009
U.S. relations with the Saudi royal family trumped the importance of the 3,000 murders on Sept. 11, 2001. That was the opinion of the U.S. State Department during the Bush years.
The Bush administration made the path as rocky as possible for the families who sued the Saudis. The families' lawsuit showed how the Saudis financed the lunatics who pulled off a mass murder on American soil in September 2001.
Barack Obama has followed that same Bush agenda.
But it took an intellectually lightweight U.S. Supreme Court to really send the important message to the Saudi royal family. That message: "We love your oil and need your money."
So even with the Supreme Court, it was all about our love affair with the Saudis when the court ruled that the families of 9/11 victims were not permitted to sue the royal family.
Even the highest court in the land could not get past the fact that the Saudis control about 25 percent of the world's oil reserves; the legend that the court is supposed to be blind to politics is once more exposed as a fraud. The justices knew that America owes the Saudi royal family billions, and that by some estimates that family controls 8 to 10 percent of our entire economy.
In front of the Supreme Court, the Obama lawyers argued the same thing that the Bush lawyers argued. In a distilled form, the argument was simple: America will make the Saudis mad if we allow the families of 3,000 murdered Americans to disclose the truth about the Saudis' role in the 9/11 horror.
Let me disclose that Ron Motley, the lawyer who has fought so hard on behalf of the 9/11 families, is a long-time friend. He may be one of the most talented claimants' lawyers alive today.
The case that Motley built against the Saudi royal family is powerful. When the new, extreme conservative majority of the Supreme Court declared that the Saudis were immune from charges of mass murder, that court had been presented with hundreds of documents that mapped out the flow of money from the Saudi royal family to al-Qaida and dozens of other fanatic groups that have declared war against America.
There was nothing vague about documents that showed how the Saudis pumped millions
of dollars into bogus charities so that those millions could end up in the hands
of Arab lunatics like the 17 Arab nationals who murdered 3,000 Americans.
The lawsuit that the 9/11 families initiated alleged that they would show specifically how Saudi "charity money" helped fund these 17 Arab criminals while those criminals planned and executed their mass murder of Americans.
This political high court ruling should give us a flashback memory of George Bush walking around in practically a lovers' embrace with Arab kings and princes.
Unfortunately, Obama is still locked in that same embrace. It is a lovers' embrace held together by oil and money. But this latest Supreme Court ruling ends any chance that the true story will ever be told about that lovers' relationship between the Saudis and the United States.
It is a sad story. Not a love story, but a story about a powerful Arab king and his high-priced paramour.
