Thoughts on 9/11

September 1, 2014

You need to hear the interview with Phillip Marshall, the airplane pilot who mysteriously shot his family and himself according to the official story after promising on this interview below that he could dedicate his life to bringing the truth of what happened on September 11, 2001 to the courts.

There was so many things that Phillip Marshall said in this interview that impressed me but one thing really stuck out and its the fact that he reports that the hijackers were Saudis and they were allowed in the U.S. and trained to fly planes here by other Saudi government officials on CIA property. This is plausible and I would like to share with many of you in the United States of Amnesia as Gore Vidal used to call it how this could be plausible by getting into the history of the relationship between the United States government and the Saudi royal family who are not true royalty by the way, but established royals with the help of the British government in the early twentieth century. So please keep in mind that the Saudi royal family are no more royal and no more direct descendants of the prophet Mohammed than you and I are.

In the 1930s, the founder of modern Saudi Arabia, King Abdul Aziz ibn Saud, was advised by British expatriate St. John Philby. A former British intelligence operative who “went native,” Philby represented King Saud in negotiations with foreign suitors eager to explore for oil beneath the shifting sands. The wily Briton soon realized that the Americans were showing more interest than were the British, and so he helped negotiate Saudi Arabia’s first oil contract with a premier American company, Standard Oil of California (SoCal), one of the spinoffs of the John D. Rockefeller’s original Standard Oil Company.

Philby advised the king to give SoCal a sixty-year exclusive contract for exploration and extraction along the shores of the Persian Gulf. It didnt hurt the company’s standing that it was quietly compensating Philby on the side. In 1938, SoCal struck oil in commercial quantities. Shipments abroad commenced the next year.

World War II firmly established oil as the preeminent strategic resource, and the United States and the Soviet Union as the world’s two superpowers.

In February 1945, Abdul Aziz met with President Franklin D. Roosevelt on board the USS Quincy in the Suez Canal, and the two cemented what would become one of the most consequential agreements in world history: the trade-off of oil for security.

This led to the establishment of a U.S. training mission in Saudi and the onset of a long-term U.S. military aid program, one that continues to this day. As part of that assistance, the United States helped create the modern Saudi army as well as the Saudi Arabian National Guard (SANG), a rival organization responsible for internal security and protection of the royal family.

The allure of the seemingly unlimited Saudi petroleum deposits beckoned increasingly as the limits of domestic U.S. oil production became apparent. Moreover, the United States increasingly looked like a good bet as protector of the Saudi royal house, especially after the humiliation of the British and French in the 1956 Suez Canal crisis. The Eisenhower Doctrine of 1957 led to a deepening of North America’s commitment to the Saudis.

The rise of the nationalist Gamal Abdel Nasser and his dalliance with the Soviets, coupled with fears of rebellion in Saudi Arabia, led to U.S. military support of Saudi Arabia in the Yemeni Civil War (1962-1970). President Kennedy was the first to order U.S. troops into the kingdom, during the Yemeni crisis.

But the outright defense of Gulf states by the U.S. military would soon end. In response to growing public distaste  for North American military entanglements in the developing world, the Nixon Doctrine (1969) declared that the United States would no longer bear the main responsibility for the defense of Gulf states. Rather than sending troops to protect developing countries, the Nixon administration sent billions of dollars’ worth of equipment. This led to the even greater U.S. military investment in Saudi Arabia. During this time, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers was charged with constructing a new headquarters for SANG.

As the Saudis became cognizant of the full extent of their riches, they took steps to gradually get control of them, and especially the revenue they produced. The vehicle for this was Aramco, which was SoCal’s postwar consortium that included Texaco, Standard Oil of New Jersey, Standard Oil of New York, and later, as a nationalized Saudi-controlled concern, Saudi Aramco, the world’s richest oil company.

The turning point came during the 1973 Arab-Israeli War, in which the Nixon administration tilted decisively in support of Israel, after which Saudi Arabia nationalized its oil deposits. In response the United States turned to new ways of maintaining the relationship, and in the process retain access to Saudi oil supplies on favorable terms. Mostly, this meant a kind of mutually beneficial shotgun marriage between the two highly dissimilar cultures, which brought more military dependence and increased financial and personal ties.

Saudi Arabia would become–and remains today–the leading recipient of U.S. arms and military services, far exceeding Israel and all other U.S. allies. Much of this assistance goes to SANG rather than the army, and therefore is intended specifically to protect and sustain the Saudi royal family. This is where after giving you a brief history of the U.S. government relationship to Saudi Arabia, I begin to make the connection with what Phillip Marshall was saying. The U.S. military assistance extended to pilot training. Previously, the United States had concentrated on training its own aircrews for operations over Saudi Arabia. Now it was equipping and training the Saudi Royal Air Force to operate Saudi aircraft–planes that had been purchased from the United States. So I believe that these 9/11 hijackers were perhaps not only CIA assets but Saudi Royal Air Force pilots. Saudi Royal Air Force pilots were trained to fly combat aircraft designed to fly at twice the speed of sound, they had to be since they had purchased Lockheed’s new F-104 Sarfighter which was designed to do just that.

Also, the ability for government people of Saudi Arabia to enter and exit the United States with ease is demonstrated in the United States hosting of Saudi princes and other Saudi scions in North American universities, fostering deep personal ties as well as inculcating North American-style values and perspectives on such topics as economics and investing, the Keynesian way I imagine.

One aspect of this deepening bond was the increasing frequency with which Saudi princes came to the United States for education and military training. The latter was a crucial aspect of the effort to protect the royal family from kingdom intrigues and plots and to reinforce Saudi dependence on the U.S. military. For example, Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdul Aziz, a grandson of the late king Abdul Aziz, was at Perrin Air Force Base near Sherman, Texas, in the Dallas area, being trained as a fighter pilot on the F-102.

Access to the world’s most expensive toys–North American high-performance aircraft, and even spacecraft–was a significant attraction to the Saudi princes. Bandar’s father, the longtime Saudi defense secretary Prince Sultan, was training in Houston at NASA and became the first foreign national to fly on the North American Space Shuttle in 1985.

So after providing all this information which shows how it is not far fetched to say that these Saudis who hijacked our airlines on 9/11 could have easily been Saudi Royal Air Force pilots and could just as easily have been trained right here in the United States. What I dont know is the details of why did they do it? They were not jihadists by any stretch of the imagination so there are still a lot of unanswered questions that need to be answered and I encourage you to continue to ask them and do you own investigations and putting together the puzzle as they seem fit to you and together we will expose the nonsense we were told via the official story and bring justice to the families of those who died on that tragic day thirteen years ago.
