Trump Stabs 9/11 Victims’ Families in the Back, Breaks Promise to Release ‘Secrets’ in Saudi Lawsuit


by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

Last September, after an oil field was bombed in Saudi Arabia, President Donald Trump tweeted that “we are waiting to hear from the Kingdom…” to find out “under what terms we would proceed” to send them our military assets. The president of the United States admitted that he was waiting on orders to be handed down from a theocratic dictatorship in Saudi Arabia on how to use the men and women in the US armed forces. Naturally, this prompted backlash from all sides, and for good reason. Saudi Arabia is the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world and they were behind the largest terror attack ever carried out on American soil, 9/11.

Despite knowing that the Saudis aided and funded the terrorists who flew planes into two world trade center towers that fateful day back in 2001, presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump have bowed down to the dictatorial regime, quite literally.  The support the United States establishment pledges to the terrorist dictatorship in Saudi Arabia is an insult to every single person who has served, is serving in the armed forces, the families of victims who lost their lives during the worst attack on US soil in the 21st century, and every free-thinking American in general.

As if Trump courting the Saudis and pledging them our Troops was not bad enough, this week, Trump reneged on his promise to release information to the 9/11 victims’ families to support their lawsuit against Saudi Arabia for their role in the attacks. This decision comes only months after President Trump promised to open FBI files to help families of the 9/11 victims in their civil lawsuit against the Saudi government.

“He looked us in the eye on 9/11, he shook our hands in the White House and said, ‘I’m going to help you — it’s done,’” recalled one of those present, Brett Eagleson, a banker whose father was killed in the World Trade Center, according to ProPublica. “I think the 9/11 families have lost all hope that the president is going to step up and do the right thing. He’s too beholden to the Saudis.”

Unfortunately, Eagleson is correct.

But we can take solace in Trump’s broken promises, however, because aiding the Saudis while kicking the victims’ families in the teeth is being done in the best “security interests” of America.

As the Independent reports, in New York federal court filings this week, US Attorney General William Barr and intelligence director Richard Grenell invoked unprecedented claims that the documents remain state secrets, which must be locked down to “protect the national security interests” of the US government, despite the president’s pledge to help families in the case.
