THE SAUDIS AND 9 11
Prince Bandar and Bush
On 29 June 2009, the US Supreme Court decided not to hear a case brought by families of 9/11 victims against Saudi Arabia, four members of the Saudi royal family, a Saudi bank and a charity.
US Supreme Court declines to hear case of 9/11 families
The Obama regime supported the Saudi monarchs, who were accused of financially supporting people involved in the 9-11 2001 attacks.
The family members claim that Saudi princes contributed to charities that funded Al Qaeda (Al CIAda) and the 9/11 'hijackers'.
In 2008, a court in Manhattan ruled that the Saudis were protected under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act.
The US Justice Department is determined to prevent the release of documents collected by lawyers for the families.
These documents, according to a New York Times report, “provide new evidence of extensive financial support for Al Qaeda and other extremist groups by members of the Saudi royal family.”
The US government has had copies of the documents destroyed and has sought to prevent judges from seeing them.
Nawaf al-Hamzi and Khalid al-Mihdhar were two Saudi nationals who were reportedly aboard planes that crashed on 9/11.
They were known by US intelligence to be members of Al Qaeda at least since 1999.
The two were allowed into the US, and were found accommodation with the help of a Saudi intelligence agent (Omar al-Bayoumi) and, later, an FBI asset (Abdussattar Shaikh).
Reportedly, Al-Bayoumi received financing from Princess Haifa, the wife of the Saudi ambassador to the US, Prince Bandar.
"Between April 1998 and May 2002, some $51-73,000 in checks and cashier's checks were provided by the Saudi Ambassador to the United States and his wife to two families in southern California, who in turn bankrolled at least two of the 9/11 hijackers." (Prince Bandar and 9/11)
It is assumed by many that the top Saudis carry out the wishes of the CIA.
Muslim Brotherhood, reportedly financed by the CIA
Prince Bandar is said to be a friend of Mossad.
"Lebanon's Al-Manar TV station reported ... that Saudi Arabia was the country that provided the intelligence to Mossad, suggesting that Saudi Secretary General of the National Security Council Prince Bandar bin Sultan played a role in the cooperation between the intelligence agencies." - Arab country 'cooperates with Mossad'
Prince Bandar has a 56,000-square-foot mansion in Aspen, Colorado.
The palatial vacation home, called Hala Ranch, is larger than the White House.From P II: An American Pinay Circle, we learn:
"The early 1970s also brought Saudis recruited by the CIA to train at American military bases, including Prince Bandar bin Sultan.
"Bandar has long been an ally, if not an asset, of the CIA.
"When DCI William Casey wanted a cell of alleged terrorists killed, King Fahd sent Bandar to Langley to make the arrangements. The plan backfired when the subsequent car bombing took
down an apartment building near Beirut, killing 80 innocent civilians.
"After September 11, 2001, Bandar would fall under suspicion when it was discovered that two of the terrorists involved were found to have received financing from the Prince.
"Bandar was trained at Ellington AFB near Houston. (Source: Lois Battuello)...
"The CIA funded the Muslim Brotherhood in 1977, and trained Mujahadin to support Hekmatyar of the Brotherhood in Afghanistan.
"The fundamentalism-happy Muslim Brothers have served the CIA operationally for some 40 years, an arrangement rubber-stamped by Allen Dulles, Frank Wisner and Kermit Roosevelt.
"Airline hijacker Mohammed Atta was ID'd as a Muslim Brother in the Wall Street Journal and New York Times shortly after the jet attacks on the World Trade Center. So were Khalid Shaik Mohammed and Ramzi Yousef..."
Bandar's US Mansion
According to Wikipedia, Bandar helped negotiate the 1985 Al Yamamah deal, a series of massive arms sales by the United Kingdom to Saudi Arabia worth GB£40 billion (US$80 billion), including the sale of more than 100 warplanes.
After the deal was signed, British arms manufacturer British Aerospace (now BAE Systems) allegedly funnelled secret payments of at least GB£1 billion (US$2 billion) into two Saudi embassy accounts in Washington, in yearly instalments of up to GB£120 million (US$240 million) over at least 10 years.
Bandar allegedly took money for personal use out of the accounts, as the purpose of one of the accounts was to pay the operating expenses of the prince's private Airbus A340.
According to investigators, there was "no distinction between the accounts of the embassy, or official government accounts [...], and the accounts of the royal family."
The payments were discovered during a Serious Fraud Office investigation, which was stopped in December 2006 by attorney general Lord Goldsmith. 
On 15 February 2008, The Guardian has a story entitled: BAE: papers reveal Saudi threats
In 2004, the UK's Serious Fraud Office began an investigation into arms sales to Saudi Arabia.
It was The Guardian which reportedly had discovered massive secret payments were going to Saudi princes, to promote arms deals.
Tony Blair eventually halted the fraud investigation, claiming that this was necessary in order to continue cooperation with Saudi Arabia in intelligence matters.
From The Guardian, 15 February 2008:
"Saudi Arabia's rulers threatened to make it easier for terrorists to attack London unless corruption investigations into their arms deals were halted, according to court documents revealed yesterday."
This looks like a piece of anti-Moslem fearmongering, of the sort that might be enjoyed by MI6?
Prince Bandar, the head of the Saudi national security council, and son of the crown prince, was alleged in court to have threatened that he might not cooperate with the British over security matters.
Prince Bandar is alleged to have received £1bn in secret payments from the arms company BAE.
Anti-corruption campaigners have now begun a legal action to overturn the decision to halt the fraud case. They want the original investigation restarted.
There are certain questions that The Guardian does not ask:
1. Are the Israelis trying to stop UK arms sales to Saudi Arabia?
2. Is the US arms industry trying to halt UK arms sales to Saudi Arabia?
3. If there is a terror attack in London, is it likely that the British Security services or the Saudi security services will know more about it?
4. Was the fraud investigation halted, not because of any fears of terrorism, but because of a wish to continue profitable arms deals?
