A Senate bill that would allow families of those killed in the 9/11 attacks to sue the Saudi government has achieved a rare Washington distinction, by uniting the Obama administration and some of its fiercest GOP critics.
President Barack Obama, Speaker Paul D. Ryan, R-Wis., and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., are rallying to kill the bipartisan plan that would make it possible for American citizens to sue foreign governments believed to be linked to terrorist attacks on U.S. soil.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest warned the legislation could lead other countries to craft even broader versions that could do significant harm to the U.S. government.
“It certainly is plausible … that that other countries when they’re implementing these laws would not tailor them so specifically,” Earnest said. “And that does open up the United States to a unique degree of risk, and putting our country, our taxpayers, our service members and our diplomats in legal jeopardy in that way is contrary to our interests.”
Earnest said it would be “unwise” for the Senate to pass the legislation, “particularly when there is an alternative mechanism for us to resolve these kinds of issues with other countries.”
That alternative, he said, is “the essence of diplomacy.”
Shortly before Earnest appeared in the White House briefing room, Ryan spoke out against the so-called ‘9/11 bill.’
“I think we need to look at it,” Ryan told reporters at the Capitol. “I think we need to review it to make sure we are not making mistakes with our allies and that we’re not catching people in this that shouldn’t be caught up in this.
On a related note, Reid said that he supported the position of members of the independent, bipartisan commission that investigated the attacks, who want to see 28 pages of their report that remain classified be made public. The material is believed to draw a picture of foreign support for the 9/11 hijackers.

As I have said many, many times: There is always bipartisanship when at least one of two conditions are met:
- They think the American people either aren’t looking or the legislation at hand is too complex for the average citizen to bother understanding.
- When there’s an opportunity to move the globalist agenda forward OR that agenda is threatened.
It’s safe to say that the American people receiving the first real information on 9/11 since the event could be a serious hindrance to the current puppet government. But I digress.
I was unfortunately too busy to post about this over the weekend. But to say that I’m stunned that there’s genuine support within Congress to declassify the mythical 28 pages is the greatest understatement ever posted on this blog. Utterly stunned.
But let’s be sober in our thinking here: We’re not going to get the full truth. We’re never going to see declassified documents that show elements across the spectrum of the United States Federal Government having advance knowledge. We’re never going to see documents showing those same elements preparing to use that horrific tragedy to forward a sick, grotesque agenda of destabilization in the Middle East and the destruction of personal liberties in the United States. But we might just manage to get a shred of truth that shows Saudi Arabia funding these attackers.
I don’t think many people in this country have even a basic understanding of the U.S./Saudi relationship. At best I would guess that most people with any familiarity simply believe that we’re close allies. I suppose that’s true in a way. But there’s that old saying about being judged by the company you keep, and Saudi Arabia is a cancer infecting the planet. Worse, they have enormous levels of influence on the United States government. I can confidently say that no other country on the planet has as much influence within the United States government.
I could post pages upon pages about this subject but for now, please follow this story. Call your senator and congressman and tell them to support the declassification of the 28 pages. WE FUCKING DESERVE TO HEAR THE TRUTH (or as much of it as we can get) ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED ON 9/11. This country has never been the same since that day. We’ll never see those days again unless we know what really happened.
