Saudi Arabia is mad at America.
They are afraid that their role in 9/11 is about to become exposed and are threatening action against the United States over it.
There is a growing movement to declassify the infamous “28 pages” that allegedly detail high-ranking Saudis assisting the 9/11 hijackers in preparing for their attacks.
Congress is threatening to pass legislation that will allow families of 9/11 victims to sue the Saudis for their role in the attacks.
If that happens, the Saudis have threatened America with this!
The Saudi Arabian government told the United States it will sell $750 billion of American assets if Congress sues the kingdom for 9/11.
The New York Times reported that Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir told President Barack Obama personally when he traveled to Washington, D.C., last month that the kingdom will “sell up to $750 billion in treasury securities and other assets in the United States before they could be in danger of being frozen by American courts.”
The Obama administration asked Congress not to pass the bill “that would allow the Saudi government to be held responsible in American courts for any role in the Sept. 11, 2011, attacks.”
Economists do not believe the Saudis will sell the assets, but it is a sign that the relationship between the countries remains troubled.
Obama’s administration also believes the bill will “put americans at legal risk overseas.” However, that action has led to backlash from survivors and families of 9/11 victims.
This has HUGE implications for our national security and our relationship with the Saudis, long believed to be an important ally in the war on terror.
Will we sever relations? Will their selling of treasuries sink our economy?
