A bill is making its way through Congress that, if passed, would spell bad news for Saudi Arabia if the country is found to be associated with the terrorist attacks on 9/11, where hijacked airplanes took down the World Trade Center and crashed into the Pentagon.

The legislation – which of course President Obama has promised to veto – would open up foreign governments to scrutiny in events, “arising from a terrorist attack that kills an American on American soil.”

The language of the legislation would possibly grant families of  9/11 victims the ability to sue foreign governments, Saudi Arabia included, if the country was responsible for terrorist attacks.

As an attempt to thwart passage of the bill, Saudi Arabia has threatened to sell off $750 billion in assets they hold in the United States – which would prevent their assets from being frozen in U.S. courts.

Saudi Arabia is also deploying an “army of lobbyists” — at least eight American firms that “perform lobbying, consulting, public relations and legal work” — to Washington as the country ramps up its campaign to stop the legislation.

In 2015, the Saudi government spent $9.4 million lobbying in Washington, according to The Hill.  While none of the disclosure firms have shown any lobbying related to the 9/11 bill, that is set to change as the legislation passes its first hurdle in the Senate.

As the American Patriot Daily documented in a comprehensive report, 28 redacted pages inside the 9/11 commission report are believed to link Saudi Arabia to the terrorist attacks on 9/11 — where 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi citizens.

Declassification of those 28 missing pages may have sparked fear in Saudi Arabia, especially if it’s proven they were tied to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and if the new bill allows the families of 9/11 victims to hold them responsible.

Presidents Bush and Obama have both repeatedly struck down multiple requests by Congress and the media to release the full, unredacted 9/11 commission report.

As documented here, Senator Bob Graham, who once acted as the Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, claimed the Saudi government was aware that potential terrorist attacks could take place against the United States at any time:

“[Saudi Arabia] knew that people who had a mission for Osama bin Laden were in, or would soon be placed in, the United States. Whether they knew what their assignments were takes the inference too far.”

Investigative reports have also shown the great extent to which Saudi Arabia spreads extreme Wahhabism, the radical Jihadists’ interpretation of Islamic teachings.
