In response to the U.S. Senate’s unanimous vote to allow 9/11 victims’ families to sue Saudi Arabia in federal court, a report published in the London-based Al-Hayat daily, by Saudi legal expert Katib al-Shammari, claims that the U.S. masterminded the terror attacks as a means of creating a nebulous “enemy” in order garner public support for a global war on terror.
The report by al-Shammari, translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), claims that long-standing American policy is “built upon the principle of advance planning and future probabilities,” which the U.S. has now turned toward the Saudi regime after being successfully employed against first the Taliban and al-Qaeda, then Saddam Hussein and his secular Baathist controlled Iraq.
Al-Shammari claims the recent U.S. threats to “expose” documents implicating the Saudi government are simply the continuation of a U.S. policy, which he refers to as “victory by means of archive.” He highlights that during the initial invasion of Iraq, under George H.W. Bush, Saddam Hussein was left alive and in power to be used as “a bargaining chip,” but upon deciding that he was “no longer an ace up their sleeve” Washington moved to topple his government and install a U.S.-backed ruling party.
The terrorist attacks of 9/11 are now the “ace up the sleeve” of the U.S. government, according to al-Shammari.
“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. [This policy] can be dubbed ‘victory by means of archives.”
The impetus behind the attacks, writes al-Shammari, was 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 any nation.
According to al-Shammari’s report in Al-Hayat:
“On September 11, the U.S. attained several victories at the same time, that [even] the hawks [who were at that time] in the White House could not have imagined. Some of them can be enumerated as follows:
1. The U.S. created, in public opinion, an obscure enemy – terrorism – which became what American presidents blamed for all their mistakes, and also became the sole motivation for any dirty operation that American politicians and military figures desire to carry out in any country. [The] terrorism [label] was applied to Muslims, and specifically to Saudi Arabia.
2. Utilizing this incident [9/11], the U.S. launched a new age of global armament. Everyone wanted to acquire all kinds of weapons to defend themselves and at the same time battle the obscure enemy, terrorism – [even though] up to this very moment we do not know the essence of this terrorism of which the U.S. speaks, except [to say that] that it is Islamic…
3. The U.S. made the American people choose from two bad options: either live peacefully [but] remain exposed to the danger of death [by terrorism] at any moment, or starve in safety, because [the country’s budget will be spent on sending] the Marines even as far as Mars to defend you.”
The Saudi press has been in a frenzy since the unanimous Senate vote to allow for the House of Saud to be held liable in U.S. federal court for the 9/11 attacks, with the U.S. being accused of being in alliance with Iran – to press warnings that passage of the “Satanic” bill would “open the gates of hell,” as reported by Breitbart.
Al-Shammari makes extremely clear that he views the problem as the U.S. imperial machine itself, stating, “the nature of the U.S. is that it cannot exist without an enemy.”
“The nature of the U.S. is that it cannot exist without an enemy… [For example,] after a period during which it did not fight anyone [i.e. following World War II], the U.S. created a new kind of war – the Cold War… Then, when the Soviet era ended, after we Muslims helped the religions and fought Communism on their [the Americans’] behalf, they began to see Muslims as their new enemy! The U.S. saw a need for creating a new enemy – and planned, organized, and carried this out [i.e. blamed Muslims for terrorism]. This will never end until it [the U.S.] accomplishes the goals it has set for itself.”
While it seems fighting Islamic terrorism is great for increasing fear and state propaganda meant to elicit compliant civilian populations that passively accept loss of liberty for promises of greater security, the military-industrial complex needs a bigger enemy to justify their $600 billion dollar-a-year budgets, thus beginning the transition to labeling Russia/China as “aggressive Russia/China,” in an effort to begin to pivot away from one boogeyman to other, more profitable, ones.

After 40 Years of Secrecy, United States Admits Saudi Arabia Owns $117 Billion of Its Debt
However, the secret financial dealings between the two nations seem to have finally come to an end. The United States Treasury Department has made a surprise announcement that the oil-rich nation of Saudi Arabia has accumulated $116.8 billion of the country’s Treasuries, as of March 2016. The announcement was made on Monday 16th May.
This stunning revelation, therefore, makes Saudi Arabia the 13th largest foreign holder of United States debt. The biggest holders of United States debt are China and Japan. Each country owned over $1 trillion. As of May 2016, the United States’ total national debt stands over $19 trillion.
Since the early 1970s, the United States has refused to specifically reveal how much Saudi Arabia has accumulated with its debt. It is said Saudi’s holdings of United States debt were added together with that of other oil exporting nations, including Venezuela and Iraq, making it difficult for one to know the exact holding figure by Saudi Arabia.
CNN reports that the current disclosure of the Saudi figure was through the initiative of Bloomberg News, based on a Freedom of Information Act request. Acting on the request, the Treasury Department disclosed precise holdings by specific countries that were previously grouped together, revealing the Saudi figure. It seemed many observers were interested in knowing the Saudi figure.
However, a Treasury official told CNNMoney that the disclosure was made following a review aimed at trying to provide more “comprehensive and transparent” data for the public’s right to know.
Apart from the Saudi figure, the new Treasury report also revealed that the Cayman Islands, a country of less than 60,000 people, owned $265 billion of United States Treasuries as of March 2016. The Cayman Islands does not have a corporate tax, encouraging multinational companies to store vast sums of money in tax avoidance.
Bermuda, another popular tax haven, is also holding $63 billion of the debt. CNN reveals that previously, both the Cayman Islands and Bermuda were lumped together in a group of Caribbean banking center nations like the oil exporting nations, which included Saudi Arabia.
Despite even the disclosure of the Saudi figure, some observers are still skeptical. This is because Saudi Arabia’s central bank is reported to have listed owning $587 billion of foreign reserves as of March 2016. Observers say that the central banks park the majority of their foreign reserves in the United States Treasuries.
Some observers believe that the disclosure of the Saudi figure did not come about only through the Freedom of Information Act request by Bloomberg News.
Tensions have been building between the United States and Saudi Arabia over the past months. An anonymous source in the Treasury Department revealed that Saudi Arabia recently threatened to sell off American assets if Congress passed a bill that would allow 9/11 victims to sue foreign governments. It is said the Saudis were serious about the threat, and were making preparation to sell off those assets.
The United States has realized the level of the threat, and therefore wants to begin to transparently deal with the Saudis. The threat has also left the Obama administration in confusion. Recently, President Obama admitted publicly that if Congress passes the bill that would allow 9/11 victims to sue foreign governments, he will veto it. Obama, therefore urged Congress not to pass such a bill.
