Saudi royal family was ‘deeply involved’ in 9/11: American analyst


September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks

The Saudi royal family was “deeply involved” in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that killed thousands of Americans, says Gordon Duff, an American political commentator and Marine combat veteran.

Duff, a senior editor at Veterans Today, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Tuesday while commenting on a report which says Saudi Arabia is recruiting US military veterans in an attempt to kill a recently-passed law allowing  9/11 families to sue Saudi nationals for their alleged role in facilitating the terrorist attacks.

The website, which is dedicated to exposing Saudi links to 9/11 and other buried truths about the terrorist attacks, called the Saudi campaign “a brazen effort.”

Duff described the Saudi initiative to hire military veterans to eviscerate the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) as “a bizarre ploy.” He said that “there is a huge amount of evidence that the Saudi royal family, Saudi government itself and others were deeply involved in 9/11.”

The September 11, 2001 attacks, also known as the 9/11 attacks, were a series of strikes in the US which killed nearly 3,000 people and caused about $10 billion in property and infrastructure damage.

Of the 19 hijackers that allegedly carried out the attacks, 15 were Saudi nationals and available evidence suggests some of them were linked to high-ranking Saudi officials.

‘Saudi Arabia is the heart of terrorism’

This weekend, CIA Director Michael Pompeo handed a medal to Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef for fighting terrorism. Nayef received the prestigious “George Tenet Medal” in Riyadh in the presence of Deputy Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.

Commenting on this, Duff said the CIA is awarding Saudi officials “for their role in fighting terrorism, yet we all know that Saudi Arabia is the primary supplier of funds and weapons, supplying ISIS, and al-Nusra directly.” Al-Nusra terrorists now call themselves Jabhat Fateh al-Sham.

“They run terrorist training camps and supply centers not only directly across the border from Iraq in Saudi Arabia, but in Jordan as well. And Saudi advisers have been captured by the Syrian government and are being held there since 2014. Saudi Arabia is the heart of terrorism,” he stated.

He added that the Wahhabist ideology is the basis of all kinds of Takfiri terrorist activities. “Saudis have always been behind this. There’s never been any question about this.”

“So the Trump administration got the CIA to award them for their work in stopping the terrorism that they are still funding to this very day!” the analyst said.

“The Saudis are being pushed for humanitarian awards while they are chopping people’s heads off, supporting terrorism around the world and running an insane police state that is carpet bombing schools, hospitals in Yemen while they are supporting al-Qaeda on the ground there, supposedly a US enemy,” Duff noted.

  1. They create the needed amount of terrorists to overcome other governments of the world for the CIA and that is the price they got for this work. Look where the CIA is really home based and then connect the dots.

  2. “Of the 19 hijackers that allegedly carried out the attacks, 15 were Saudi nationals and available evidence suggests some of them were linked to high-ranking Saudi officials.”

    And as many as seven of the alleged 19 hijackers have since appeared publicly to proclaim their innocence. The FBI knows this, yet fails to update it’s list of 9/11 suspects. Go figure. It doesn’t get any more Orwellian than the CIA giving Saudi Arabia a medal for their anti-terrorism efforts. That is a direct insult to common knowledge. That is the USG calling the world stupid, again. If the USG was really about fighting terrorism and overthrowing brutal dictatorships, as they so often claim, Saudi Arabia would be first on the chopping block. They are chopping off heads and hands in public, hanging in public, whipping in public and they are the world’s leading state sponsor of international jihadi terrorists. How long can the Orwellian charade continue?

    If Saudi Arabia played a definite role in 9/11, as many government offficials have suggested, Michael Pompeo is providing comfort to 9/11 co-conspirators and should pay the price with his life.

    • If you remember in the past, Gordon has said, in some cases he has to make a case, even if he knows it is wrong, simply to stay alive. This may be the situation. Just saying, not sure.

  3. Anyone who still thinks there were “Arab hijackers” during 9/11 attacks is a moron. There were NO planes in the twin towers nor in the Pentagon.

    Hollywood-style effects and digitally added planes in the videos for NY, and a real missile for Washington. And a nuclear destruction of THREE skyscrapers in NY.

    If you don’t start from reality, you won’t understand anything. Physics is not negotiable.
