Saudi Arabia Press Claims U.S. Responsible For 9/11

The Saudi press was not happy when the U.S. Senate voted unanimously to approve a bill that allows the families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia. Now, the London-based Al-Hayat daily is claiming that the U.S. planned the attacks on the World Trade Center to begin a global war on terror. The article was written by Saudi legal expert Katib al-Shammari and translated by MEMRI.

TAl-Shammari claims that the U.S. chooses to keep some cards close to its chest in order to use them at a later date. He says one of those involved the decision to invade Iraq in the 1990s and keep Saddam Hussein alive to use as "a bargaining chip" against other Gulf States. Once Shi'ism seemed to sweep the region, America got rid of Hussein “since they no longer saw him as an ace up their sleeve.” He says 9/11 was similar. He writes:

"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."

In his conspiracy article, al-Shammari writes the the attaks were 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 other countries. He believes that the terror label was applied to Muslims even though it was Muslims who helped America defeat the Soviets and bring an end to the Cold War, The Saudi press has also accused the U.S. of being "schizophrenic."
