March 12—During his March 8 webcast, American statesman Lyndon LaRouche demanded immediate release of the crucial 28 pages in the Congressional Joint Inquiry into the 9/11 attack on the United States, which have been redacted to protect the collaboration between U.S. traitors and the Saudi monarchy, in perpetrating that history-changing crime.
The timeliness of LaRouche’s demand is shown by fact that the Obama Administration is continuing the very alliance with the arm of the British Empire’s Saudi kingdom that was operative with the Bush family in 9/11/2001—an alliance which could lead directly toward World War III. Specifically, Obama has given the green light to escalating Saudi support for terrorist groups fighting Syria’s Assad government, and continues to protect, if not encourage, the Saudi-funded jihadis who are running amok in North Africa, and were the assassins of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, among others.
At this point, where the Obama Administration is already reeling from the bipartisan revolt against its murderous drone policy, and Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) has called for the release of the 28 pages, an escalation of political pressure could expose the traitorous coverup, and derail the war drive.
A Damning Indictment
The second question addressed to LaRouche at the March 8 webcast, took up 9/11/2001, in terms of how it laid the basis for the current killer-drone and global-war policy of first the Bush, and then the Obama administrations, by getting Congress to agree to the Authorization of the Use of Military Force (AUMF) on Sept. 14, 2001. That resolution—which, only now, some members of Congress are introducing legislation to repeal—authorized “the President to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons, he determines planned, authorized, committed or aided the terrorist attacks … or, who harbored such organizations or persons, in order to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the United States….”
Bush used the AUMF to authorize the war in Afghanistan, the 2003 war in Iraq—in reality, a whole process of “global war” which Obama has not only continued, but expanded by his terror drone warfare around the world. Domestically, it was used to drastically increase police-state measures against American citizens and residents as well.
This was, indeed, the outcome which the real authors of 9/11—tools of the British monarchy such as then-Prime Minister Tony Blair, and the Saudi royal family—desired. But, to achieve it, they had to carry out a coverup of how 9/11 was actually run.
LaRouche and EIR have long exposed the British-Saudi role, with the complicity of de facto traitors like Bush and Obama, in 9/11 and its coverup which continues to this day. In his March 8 response, LaRouche insisted this coverup must end now.
“We know that the 9/11 operation, as it’s been called, was organized by a trio of agencies: the British monarchy, the BAE military institution, and the Saudi government. And we also know that the ambassador of Saudi Arabia to the United States was involved in organizing the funding of the pilots who participated in those attacks. And we also know that the Bush Administration knew that this was this case, because it was the Bush Administration that organized the safe exit of those Saudi families which were tied to that part of Saudi business in the United States. The whole nation was shut down at that point; no one could fly in or out, except the Saudis, who were escorted out from Texas and other places where they had been, meeting with the Bush family, for example.
“So this whole operation then, was entirely that. But what’s the significance? The significance is very simple: Who could get the United States, which had just suffered a major attack from Saudi and British forces, who were involved in this because the British institutions, the BAE, and the Saudi institutions, were all part of this operation? So, who could do that? We know exactly who did it: It was done by the British monarchy! The British monarchy set the whole thing up. That’s the guilty party, and that’s what the coverup is all about.
“Now, I think the simple thing is, I think the British monarchy should, shall we say, be restrained….
“And what we have, is we have people in the United States, in high positions of government, high positions of politics, and of business interests, of banking interests, of the kind that have swallowed everything up: That’s where the enemy lies. And the point is, the United States has been betrayed by its own government, knowledgeably. Don’t you think that they know what this thing is? Don’t you think this is known? How can you suppress something without knowing what it is you’re suppressing?
“No, this is the great crime, this is a great treason, by all of those officials of the government in the United States, who are complicit in the coverup! The evidence was there. Why, then, if the evidence is not there, why don’t they just publish the 28 pages? Why don’t they? Because they’re covering it up. Because they’re working for a foreign power against the people of the United States.That’s the truth of the matter, and if the people of the United States realize what has been done to them, they will demand relief from the kind of crap they’ve been put through all of these years, especially since 2001.”
Congress Has the Power
It is the U.S. Congress, which, as a body, has consistently shown the backbone of a worm for more than a decade, which has the responsibility, and power, to break the coverup. The CIA has responded to Freedom of Information requests for information on the Congressional report by saying that it is Congress, not the CIA, which alone has the authority to declassify the information.
Taking the lead, once again, in goading Congress to act is Rep. Walter Jones, who has worked across party lines from the time of the Clinton Administration on, against wars started by administrations without authorization from Congress, and other matters.
On Feb. 26, Jones posted on his website the following letter, calling for the release of the infamous redacted 28 pages of Congressional Joint Inquiry on 9/11. Dated Feb. 14, the letter is addressed to the Republican and Democratic leaders of the House Permanent Committee on Intelligence:
“Dear Chairman Rogers and Ranking Member Ruppersberger:
“I want to thank you for conducting the very important hearings last week on the killing of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and the three other State Department officials during the Benghazi attack on September 11, 2012.
“In light of those hearings, I urge you, as chairman and ranking member, to recommend a declassification of the 28 pages of the Congressional Joint Inquiry report describing what role the Saudi Arabian government had in the terrorist attack on 9/11. As you know, former Senator Bob Graham has conducted extensive research into this issue and has been nationally recognized and interviewed for his belief that these 28 pages should be declassified.
“The families of the victims of 9/11 have a right to this information, as do the American people. Since your committee has jurisdiction over this matter, I ask you and the ranking member to please review the attached correspondence from Mr. Mike Low, who lost a daughter on American Airlines flight 11 on that tragic day. As Mr. Low states, ‘Our hope is that over time, history will have the total truth of all the events of 9/11.’
“Mr. Chairman, the American people have a right to know the truth. It is critical for the citizens of this country to have trust in their government. I hope that you will take this into consideration and I look forward to hearing back from you.”
